Special Educational Needs

Understand the differences between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and how to develop a stimulating learning environment. Pupils will be encouraged to make progress in their learning for the benefit of gaining knowledge or skills instead of for rewards like points and certificates. Ensure your classroom is an environment where a love of learning comes first and you celebrate the success of learning.

Stuck in the mud is a tradition 'tag' game and is a great heart raiser for any age. Also known as Stuck in the Mud, Scarecrow, Sticky-Glue, Zombie Tag, or Ice-and-Water (in Asia), players who are tagged are "stuck in the mud" or "frozen" and must stand in place with their arms stretched out until they are unfrozen.
