Identifying More Able Learners Thursday 5th October 2017
The first step to good provision for ‘more able’ learners is effective identification. This session considers two different approaches to identification, with particular focus on identifying disadvantaged, more able learners. It would therefore be appropriate for schools to use some of their Pupil Premium to send staff on this session. The workshop is especially suitable for those with responsibility for ‘more able’ or ‘inclusion’ in their school.
You will be able to:
- Differentiate between different sources of evidence, their benefits and limitations
- Develop your understanding of two different approaches that are prevalent in current thinking
- Explore how identification can include able underachievers and learners with SEN
- Understand how different approaches might be needed to ensure disadvantaged able learners are not missed
Developing Thinking Skills Tuesday 27th February 2018
This session will focus on practical activities to develop thinking skills in the primary classroom. We will explore thinking time, thinking buddies, thinking activities and depth of thinking. These strategies are good for all students, and essential for your ‘more able’ learners.
Supporting Transition for More Able Learners Tuesday 12th June 2018
Changes at school can be difficult for any child and many ‘more able’ children can be sensitive to change and new situations. Together we will explore the particular characteristics of these learners that impact at times of change and consider practical strategies to help them make that transition with confidence.
