Over the course of the term, students are required to select and complete one different independent learning task each week from the Easy, Medium and Challenge colours indicated on the ILW. Depending on the duration of the school term, students will have completed all six tasks. The tasks can be handed in each week or in a bundle at the end of the school term. The class teacher will provide written targets for each completed task as well grade each of these tasks with one of the following progress grades: Progress 5 - Outstanding Progress 4 - Good Progress 3 - Satisfactory Progress 2 - Unsatisfactory Progress 1 - Serious Cause for Concern This resource pack includes: - 3x colour coded Independent Learning Worksheets - 5x non colour coded Independent Learning Worksheets to be adapted for your use - 1x Blank Independent Learning Worksheet template These ILW have worked increasingly well in improving literacy across the English faculty and the wider school community.
