This week’s blog of the week has a PP focus and there are so many links to the work we are doing on independent learning.
A really nice blog that gives some thoughts about how to motivate children in school.
This is a very interesting blog discussing how to plan extended explanations of substantive content, delivered didactically to a whole class.
This week’s blog reinforces the research that repeated retrieval aids retention.
Active learning strategies that you may find useful.
Homework is one that often causes a real stir and this blog is nothing new. The blog mentions flip learning and this is also something that some staff have applied quite successfully.
This is a nice blog to get us thinking about teaching and learning as we approach the new term. You may recognise the struggle zone and the six principles as I have shared this before. This is taken from the book ‘Make Every Lesson Count’ which is an excellent book if anyone would like to borrow it.
This blog written by David Didau that I shared back in late June made me think about my Year 10 group who were beginning to make links with other topics that we have studied in paper 1.
Thank you to Jason for sending through this link, it is an interesting read. A learning walk back in May really did demonstrate that we have the highest of expectations here at AGGS.
A useful blog on structuring effective revision.
