Key Skills Series - Understanding Children at Primary

When the French author Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote that “children understand”, he of course meant that adults don’t.  He believed - or at least his famous character believed - that adults understand neither the things that children care about, nor even the children themselves. But for anyone working in education, this understanding must surely be their first aim.

Making Assessment Meaningful, Marking Manageable and Feedback Motivating

live-stream icon venue icon

The words ‘assessment’, ‘feedback’, ‘target setting’ and ‘monitoring progress’ are some of the most common found in education, but do we put ourselves in our learners’ shoes?

Children often struggle to understand mathematical ideas if they move towards the “abstract” too quickly, and we rightly use different representations to make things easier for them to understand.
