This is a succinct marking and planning document for Maths.
As a school, we teach in a Same Day Intervention style.
It has been hugely successful for us, contributing to our year 6 data going from 49% expected and 7% GD, to 93% expected and 43% GD. This has happened in the space of 2 years.
Our use of this document is vital to the success of the lesson.
It makes the teacher identify what the possible misconceptions of a lesson will be - these should be part of the lesson. What’s wrong is just as important as what is correct.
The top of the document shows which children require support at the beginning of the lesson to re-enforce the previous day’s learning. (This would happen whilst the other children completed a starter activity.
There is a section for mathematical vocabulary - this is important for a teacher, but can be invaluable for any support staff in the room.
During the input, support staff will identify children who are finding the concept difficult - checking their whiteboard work etc to create a list of children who will be intervened with immediately afterwards.
The bottom two boxes are for when the independent work section of the lesson is completed. The children go out to play, whilst the teacher quickly checks the work. The initials of any children needing intervention or consolidation work are placed in these sections. When they come in from play, this happens immediately, whilst other children are pushed onto more challenging tasks to deepen their learning and understanding.
I love this document - and it’s so simple.
Please feel free to ask me about it in more detail if you wish.
