We use a variety of teaching approaches:
Small Group teaching and learning sessions.
The children may be working in mixed ability or similar
ability groups depending on the learning task.
During Small Group learning sessions, some groups will work with a
teacher or assistant whilst other groups are working independently. These
groups rotate so that every group of children has the opportunity to work on
both teacher led and independent tasks.
Whole Class Group teaching.
Our teachers aim to make these as interactive as
Daily Bi-literacy and Numeracy tasks that
reinforce basic skills.
These may be written or practical
