What is your advice about? Differentiation

1: Make the children take responsibility for their learning and ask them if they are being challenged.
Get them out of their comfort zones and into their learning zones.

2: Encourage them to choose their own challenge level. No need to ability group.

3: Use exciting ways to differentiate activities. Eg chilli challenges; mild, medium, hot, extra hot… Always encourage moving on.

4: Try to make activities open ended. Eg How many different totals can you make with 1,2,3 and any operation? Or how many ways could you spend £3 etc.

5: Allow children to show you what they can do and they’ll surprise you. Encourage them to show you what they can do and they’ll surprise themselves!
