Code: ASS/20/458/P Assessment moderation cluster for teachers in Years 5 and 6: cluster 6 - Royston, Baldock and Letchworth

This year, the focus of this moderation session will be reading and writing. The session will provide an excellent opportunity for teachers to work together with colleagues across schools, to help to build a consistent understanding of the national curriculum standards and year group expectations. We will also use the sessions to promote good practice in building powerful assessment and formative feedback opportunities into everyday learning in order to plug gaps, build on existing learning and ensure progression in reading and writing skills.

It is essential that delegates bring along examples of pupils' work from their class. We will provide suggested assessment tasks for both reading and writing for teachers to use with the pupils in advance of the sessions. Information will be sent to delegates and also uploaded to the grid at: http://www.thegrid.org.uk/learning/assessment/ks2/moderationclusters.shtml

Code: 19MAT/048P Differentiation in Key Stage 1 mathematics: how to scaffold successful learning

‘[a scaffold is] that [which] enables a child or novice to solve a task or achieve a goal that would be beyond his unassisted effort’ Wood et al 1976, p90. At its most simple, differentiation is the teacher’s response to the variation amongst learners in a classroom. However, differentiation is a vast field, with multiple aspects and opportunities that need to be considered when deciding on the most appropriate adjustments to facilitate maximum learning.

There is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach; nor is there a magic bullet. It relies on our professional knowledge of our pupils and consideration of a few key questions.

During this course we will be exploring a number of different strategies for scaffolding KS1 pupils throughout the teaching sequence from effective pre teaching, through real time learning adjustments in the classroom, to how we maintain the learning over time. This course builds on ‘Differentiation in maths - scaffolding or metaphorical escalators!’ https://www.hertsforlearning.co.uk/blog/differentiation-maths-scaffolding-or-metaphorical-escalators

Code: EAY/19/481/P Supporting smooth transitions briefing

As part of the HCC commissioned transition project, the Herts for Learning Early Years team are providing briefing sessions to share details of the project, the transition level of need pathway and provide each school with a copy of the transition toolkit. The overall focus of the project is to ensure a smooth transition for all children, including those at risk of underachievement.

The aim of the briefing is for early years practitioners working in school nursery and reception classes to receive information on the transition level of need pathway and tools developed as part of the project. It will be important that practitioners gain an understanding of how this can support early identification of those children with potential barriers to learning and help enable them to experience a smooth transition to school.

A transition toolkit will be provided for each school with a range of resources to support transition practice.
