had the class with the pupil who i’m doing the assignment on yesterday. He was noticeably better. Had previously worried that I was being softer on him in order to show progress, so I made a conscious effort to respond to him as I would any other pupil.
He had bought a new school bag over Easter, so as to enable him to meet his first target of taking his book home, and he only got to V1. Completed many questions (7 or 8) so met that target too. He was still slightly disruptive but, overall, a lot better.
