If a child has not grasped a concept in the morning (Phonics, English or Maths) or were ‘nearly there’ with something, teachers can use this system for the learning to be revisited/retaught to ensure they are ready for tomorrow’s lesson. Also, if they feel a child would benefit with a pre-teach before tomorrow’s lesson to give them a head’s up, to feel more confident with a new concept or to be a ‘mini-teacher’ in building confidence or extending learning they can use this too. We want to keep them up, not catch them up.
All intervention work will be completed in their usual class books so we can see the journey of learning. E.g. Joe understood the concept of the column method by the end of today's Maths lesson, but was a little wobbly (work in book shows this), tomorrow children are moving on to exchanging and Joe will find this tricky, Miss Murphy can go over today's learning and get that secure and introduce exchanging as a pre-teach so Joe is in better place ready for tomorrow's lesson.
