...as though they weren’t achieving what they should. Utter nonsense but the system wouldn’t accept ‘no grade’. what we were talking about this morning.

This was a constant source of irritation to me when working in Autism Specialist Provision within mainstream secondary. Children who didn’t sit SATs were given the average SATs score from the year to define predicted grades. For my students that meant it looked to them...

When in specialist provision we spent a long time teaching our children we would not exclude no matter what. Behaviour improved hugely. Most arrived looking to find what button to press to get sent home until they realised. Working with children and families is more effective.

I always loved reading. None of my family read and I’m dyslexic- but for me books have always been escapism. They are way into a world you might not otherwise visit, a way of beginning to understand others, a way of removing yourself from whatever is happening in life.

Before we take a test I always remind my classes that if we judged a fish on its ability to climb a tree it would lose spectacularly, if however it was judged on its swimming ability it would come out on top. Discovering those strengths/ talents is the exciting part.

Oooo great advice re. the glue, thank you. Yes we’ve done the IKEA one in the past and been impressed too. Not available online though unfortunately.

We have done that one before and were impressed. It isn’t available online though sadly and our nearest store is a fair drive away even in normal circumstances.

Has anyone made a ‘flat pack’ gingerbread house that worked well and they would recommend? We are planning to Zoom with the children’s cousins and grandparents and make them together but apart in the Christmas holidays. As I’ll be buying a few I’d like to get to get it right :-)

I’m a primary school teacher, but our head is brilliant and has put so many measures in place to keep us safe. Conscious that there are far fewer measures at eldest’s school.
