Out of the Classroom



Behaviour management expert Sue Cowley visits a Year 3 teacher in Birmingham, to give him advice on controlling behaviour when taking pupils out of the classroom environment, in this pedagogy resource.

Sue and Baz Barrett discuss the issues he faces when taking pupils out of the classroom. She then observes a typical PE lesson with his KS2 class. The pupils' behaviour becomes disruptive when they move out of the classroom environment and into the open space of the PE Hall.

Sue and Barrett discuss a variety of pedagogical strategies he could use to manage and improve the pupils' behaviour during the lesson.

She tells him how to focus the pupils before they leave the classroom, gain their attention at the start of the PE lesson and regain their attention at any point during the lesson.

Two weeks later, Sue revisits Ward End Primary School to see how behaviour patterns have improved in Baz's PE lesson.
