Primary Assessment for Learning - Collaborative Learning

Description

Park Lane Primary are looking at different learning styles to raise pupil self esteem, accelerate progress and foster pupil participation in their learning.

Teacher Pippa McGeoch removed ability settings in her Year 6 class with very positive results. Students became more motivated when working together with learning partners and sitting at mixed ability tables.

In a maths lesson about co-ordinates, differentiation is achieved through the choice of success criteria. They peer assess each others letter-writing, focusing on informal language.

Students are also actively involved in the planning process, providing them with ownership of what they learn.

Headteacher Martin Francis monitors the effectiveness of these collaborative learning strategies.
