She is standing in front of the uniformed class; all the students are sitting at clumps of tables. Each group of three or four desks has a themed title- patience, kindness, honestly, effort. The students are talking and chatting among themselves, they have just come in from lunch or a previous class and have been sorted out into ability groups, and this is the ‘achieving on level with grade or above group’. All the students sit at their own desk with their name on the back of their chair, but occasional students are not sitting in their assigned chair, but rather with a friend.
