A variety of factors are taken into consideration when forming class groups, such as age, level of performance, social and emotional maturity. They believe that familiar and established routines and procedures can support learning. They provide a ‘road map’ that helps pupils know what to expect. They can support social interactions and establish a sense of security for children (e.g. established procedures around arriving in the classroom, routines for registration, book changing, and circle time). Structure and routines throughout the day helps to provide consistency and a feeling of security for the pupils.
