Respect, Responsibility and Really Good Manners

Science

As with many other subjects, teachers carry our pre-learning and post-learning assessment tasks, gauging pupil recall and knowledge in a given subject before an after teaching. 

 We also revisit previously-taught topics through the use of Do Now recall activities, to maintain retrieval strength of knowledge from units that have not been taught recently.

In KS2, Learning by Questions tablets are used to check pupil understanding throughout a unit's progression. These self-marking quizzes provide children with immediate feedback.

At the end of a unit, pupils will produce a double-page spread, celebrating and summarising their learning in their own unique way, before teachers assess each pupil based on their demonstration of retaining and explaining the sticky knowledge for each unit.
