Description

It is widespread practice to'meet and greet' students at the door and have a self-explanatory'in and on' activity displayed on the board. The intention is that students settle quickly and are immediately engaged with their learning. I have noticed that, during the meet and greet, across these several schools and a variety of ability groups, the common question'Are we doing a practical today?' is asked, often from numerous students entering the same lesson.
