During placement 1, I was given a year 7 class of mixed ability pupils. Within this group there were some pupils who were lower ability and could display some disruptive behaviour. There was one particular pupil who struggled to focus and could become agitated. Over the four months I was teaching this pupil has excelled during the lessons and the rapport I built has aided this. The pupil now engages well with the lesson and completes tasks to the best of their ability. This felt like a massive accomplishment.
