Planning for higher attainers
There are many challenges in teaching a mixed ability class. This session looks at what makes a lesson more intellectually demanding so that high achievers can be challenged in an inclusive context which will raise aspirations for all. NQTs will:
- explore a number of strategies for differentiating mixed ability lessons for higher attainers
- identify some strategies to try out and evaluate in their class
- examine the notion of high ability and consider what makes an activity more or less intellectually challenging
There is a bulk bundle package (all 14 sessions) for £695 per NQT which will save schools up to £355 per NQT. If a school wishes to purchase the 'bulk bundle package' for a Year 1 – 6 NQT, it must be selected and checked out of your basket PRIOR to the school then booking the NQT on to each of the 14 sessions (see details below). NB. If the bulk bundle package is not selected and checked out of your basket then the school will NOT receive the £355 discount per NQT. The NQT must also be booked onto each session even if your school has purchased the bulk bundle package for them. This is necessary in order for the NQT to receive confirmation and reminders of their place at each session as well as notification of any cancellations and evaluation requests to their individual email address. To purchase the bulk bundle package Head teachers/ School Business Managers should go to http://schoolsservices.lewisham.gov.uk. Click on the Services homepage and select 'Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Appropriate Body and Primary NQT Training'. In the right hand column under ‘Services’ click the 'Buy Now' button. Then tick the box and select the number of ‘packages’ you wish to purchase (1 for each NQT). Add to your basket and checkout. Alternatively schools can book ‘pay as you go’ individual sessions at £75 per session per NQT. Please add the items (sessions) to your basket and then check out. To book training courses for both the bulk bundle package (after this has been purchased from the Services homepage) and for ‘pay as you go’ individual sessions at £75 per session, click 'book now' at the top right of this page.
