Getting on and falling out

Back to school with a vengeance. A little delegation of boys caught me at lunchtime, asking to move places. Oddly enough (!) I'd just decided it was time for a shake up and was in the process of organising it.

Before I worked in an all boys school, I thought it was girls who mainly fell out.

How wrong I was!

Nevertheless, I asked them - in confidence - who they WOULD want to be with and who they WOULDN'T. Then I created a sociogram - drawing lots of green and red lines, with arrows.

It was fascinating to see who was most popular (the quietest boy in the class) and who was the most disliked.

Now I've just got to sort out who sits with whom.

I don't expect it to be easy!
