Michael Gove was talking yesterday about extending the school day, potentially to 6pm. What are peoples opinions of this? Personally I can see where he's coming from about extending the day, I'm not quite sure how I manage to fit everything in now, but it would have to be so carefully thought out for the progression of all the children and the sanity of all the teachers.

With the schoolday finishing at 3 I am already working almost 60 hours a week in term time and 30 hour weeks through much of the holidays. I can't see how I could cope with a longer teaching day. The only way a longer schoolday could work would be if there was a significant increase in staff. Somehow I can't see that being funded by government.

Helpful advice. I think you have to judge differentiation on the class you have though. I don't think you can just apply these across the primary curriculum.

I know that the whole level thing is still very much in the air but this website continues to be of support for the meanwhile.
