SLT 1 Provide support for learning activities:

Working closely with Mr P we plan both Literacy and Numeracy together differentiating the work to suit my group. At the start of every lesson, we begin with a short overview of what will be covering within the lesson giving examples and asking questions to check that the pupils understand. We will then look at the worksheets together and work on the first couple of tasks together as a group, this is so I can continue questioning them and assessing them to see if they are able to apply the methods from the overview and examples if they cannot I will simplify the task again.

I also make reading comprehension sheets for the children to complete at different points in the book, again this helps me to assess the children’s understanding and progress enabling to make changes when and where needed. During the 1 to 1 sessions the work is targeted to the individual...
