Additional information
Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners? Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning? Health and safety check
ICT links

Less able students – greater support by means of prompts, visuals or writing difficult words on the blackboard

More able students – independent work on definite tasks with little/no support

through observation ·      Work with the SMART board not more than 10 minutes

·      Use water based markers

·      Ensure proper ventilation

·      Monitor classroom space when students start moving around
