'Never missing a teaching and learning trick'
Issue 1 - August 2013
Each month I aim to bring to you some of the best teaching and learning ideas. These will not just be from within the Curriculum Area, but also the best things that are happening across the world.
Initial focus for 13/14
'Personalised learning is a highly structured and responsive approach to learning for each individual child and young person. It creates an ethos in which all pupils are able to progress, achieve and participate' (NCSL, 2012).
Following the great work last academic year by the team, whereby we devised a more user friendly group profile and the work over the last few years developing our: differentiation, questioning and EDI, we will now consolidate it all.
The first AP session for 2013/14 will focus on recapping all aspects of personalised learning and how we can make effective use of the group profile. The first thematic observations will focus on this theme and provide us with our strengths and areas for improvement in the area - A key focus for Ofsted.
