Behaviour management expert Sue Cowley advises primary school teachers on handling the crucial first 15 minutes of a school day and keeping control of difficult situations.
This pedagogy resource shows: tips and tricks for keeping control in the most difficult of circumstances; how to handle the critical first 15 minutes of the school day; and how to prevent over-exuberant behaviour in the playground from spilling over into the classroom.
Sue says "Teaching is like a battlefield; the enemy is not the kids but anything that gets in the way of them learning".
Sue discusses how the skirmishes that break out in an unruly playground line-up can disrupt the whole day. Watch a vivid dramatisation of how things can go wrong, with the help of teacher Mark Heritage.
