"Judy. Tell us about a holistic approach to the teaching of mass night. That's how. I try and teach. I try not to be teaching for task. Don't like teaching two tasks like to teach for understanding the children to really enjoy. We start to enjoy what they're doing in most of the children. I teach Come to me because they've got really really bad math anxiety. They've they've main off. Lots of them have had a previous shooter. Hasn't worked mind very quickly or you know a couple of months and then the chargers go royal. I want to know the show that didn't work. And then they've reached this awful point weather feeling so bad about my state just can't function And then the parents being really worried on they found may try to teach them In a way that brings down their anxiety. So there's a lot to do with The getting getting them said at the moment that they're not really bad anxiety. Why they they. They can't function that That working memory doesn't mean isn't working the processing speed is just gone. Room right down On that they just can't function so it's all about trying to get it so that we can bring down anxiety enough for them to function so can teach them so. He'll talk about the connection between the mental health and the readiness for landing. Oh absolutely yes absolutely not If that if that you scared in still not fight or flight mode. It doesn't matter wall. Brilliant lesson you chuck out. It's not gonna win and it's not gonna help so When i i. Don't a tutoring child. We play all sorts of games and i'm really into gamification of my lessons. A teach On zoom and. I use a bit paper. Think's brilliant really setup as interactive whiteboard. Especially for for chooses. That enables me to Bill to preload anything. I want from my hard disk or the all of the internet of resources i can make can bring on. I can pace them all into into the paper. And i have all loaded up almost pages. So those will be games like bingo. He had lots of things like bingo. Children love snakes and ladders yang jiao older traditional board games. I will have a aboard posted up onto my into my bit paper. And the first few you i if the child is really acutely anxious to that point you know we we. Just we just play snakes and ladders. I'm you know. I'm not bring in bringing down the level of difficulty or something to a point where it joyal i point. They can start to succeed. They can start to enjoy it. They can start in enjoy winning and that kind of feeling of yakov is kind of failing and you know to be honest. I don't have to play that level only playing the game if for very long. 'cause i generally get sick children. We've got a big Reach from now here. A giant dice. I've made out a twelve sided. Yeah we'll get it so that they've got one end the iran they've made up and we said that we can roll them. Show the camera how they wanna be. My my elephant along to was cutting crew. So they're just playing time and that that starts to bring down there that wrong society so that it can actually actually engage with me once they can start to engage with made than their anxiety does start come down. I mean very gradually i start to increase. We go right back to basics now. Children children come to me who are not managing to do the now. They can't do the gcc because many layers back down through the wool. I'll gaps and the thing i do a lot is is trying to find the gaps. I find by lots of all sorts of things that i do but not really aware that. That's what i'm doing and and very very quickly within the first session as we might be playing leader whatever particular snakes not as is one because children love it if you owe ono a three ono on the snake and you can't run the under the desks tonight that it's so psychological things isn't it and they will then you know. Even charlie's massive anxious will laugh. All i've gone down a snake and broken the ice and it's all about breaking the ice being to start to improve that confidence because they've heard the word matt's been in mice lesson they will have just gone into this complete lockdown on so say that that that the memory in the processes we all. That's just gone to. Paul won't do things i i hate tying tat's absolutely deplore because it really messes with children If you ask them to do the same thing not timed they will manage to get masses more done and masses. More roy nt the moment it becomes against the clock in any way It sets off this fight or flight response And then you brain diverts all the energy away from the processing speed and everything so therefore they lend then can't do and it's just this massive vicious cycle which is a tried to sort out or all the way through It's also this terrible habit that we have of teaching children to think quickly instead of deeply
