This document provides teachers with examples of ready-made pre and post learning challenges for all National Curriculum subjects across Key Stages 1 and 2. These easy-to-use resources enable teachers to accurately assess pupils before planning their lessons and then again after the lessons to check progress. This can ensure pupils are in the right ability groupings for every lesson. The process can also help teachers in planning effective differentiation in foundation subjects; often a key issue in subject inspections.
This document explains how the process can be used effectively and includes blank templates so teachers can design their own challenges based on the specific context and curriculum of their school. Using this process teachers can ensure that they, ‘assess pupils’ learning and progress regularly and accurately’, as described in the Ofsted grade descriptors for Good teaching.Design Pre and Post Learning Challenges
