I was trying to look at the effect of disruptive behaviour within the classroom environment on SEN pupils, and the impact the disruption has on them in terms of being able to keep to task. I was hoping to ensure that the identified cohort of pupils have sufficient coping mechanisms during disruptive periods and to have the ability to keep to task. I delivered a range of activities for children such as “talk time” about our feelings, comfort breaks to play ball games and sharing a book as a group. Resources included using a book already sourced in school, a ball and staff time from myself. I was able to keep teachers up to date from the two classes by informing them of interventions taking place.
“One thing that I could use is a privacy board, this would help me to keep working”
Feedback from one of our children.
Summary of impact
The most apparent impact was the engagement from the children and their ability to be able to talk freely. They were able to speak openly and express their feelings. It was important for the children to understand that they are listened to and other children’s actions should not stop them for being able to continue with their work.
Social and emotional learning.
Identified the selected children with class teachers and SENDCO and looking at their behaviour patterns.
Talk time and group work to improve relationships and emotional well-being.
Enabling pupils to speak and express freely their feelings. Coping with disruption to their learning and keeping to task, enabling them to achieve.
Reading a book which was relevant to a child being anxious about a situation and how to talk about it.
What would we do differently
It has been difficult to have a consistent amount of time with the children due to absence. I would have probably looked at having greater number of children to work with. It was difficult, although time was allocated, to stick to the allocated time as workload and being a 1 to 1 did not always allow for consistency.
Half an hour of my time weekly.
