OVERVIEW: The project will involve the trialling and reviewing of a range of approaches to deal with the issue of planning for mixed age classes in a mastery context. Participants will explore current work and case studies from
the innovation Work Groups which have previously looked at this issue. Teachers will be able to engage with the approaches in their own schools and evaluate the impact on pupils. The Primary Mastery Professional Development Materials will underpin the work and provide a structure for planning.
The project will involve the trialling and reviewing of a range of approaches to deal with the issue of planning for mixed age classes in a mastery context. It will present current work and case studies from the innovation work already carried out. Work Group Leads will support participants in engaging with the approaches in their own schools and evaluating the impact on pupils. Participants will be able to explore a range of models for addressing mixed age teaching in maths, including:
Restructuring lesson time to allow for separate input to different year groups
Restructuring staffing and timetables so pupils can be grouped by age for maths lessons
Planning to meet the needs of learners from different year groups when it is not possible or practical to group pupils according to their age (e.g. in very small schools where more than two year groups are mixed).
