Skip to 0 minutes and 5 seconds Hopefully, the different activities and video footage of classrooms that you have seen this week has provided you with sufficient ideas of what you might try with one or more of your classes this week. Please make a note of any questions or comments that arise as you think about the ideas introduced and begin working on these with your students. These will be useful as you move forward from week to week, and also might lead to wider discussion with colleagues, either through our Online Question and Answer session or through the discussion board. So good luck in planning for some differentiated activities this week.

Reflecting on your learning this week

In this short video Chris draws the week to a close. This week you have looked at:

  • The link between assessment for learning and differentiation for learning
  • The use of hinge-point questions to determine next steps
  • Examples of diagnostic activities in the classroom


We encourage you to try out some diagnostic activities with your students. If you are teaching remotely, we have included how you could use online tools such as Google Forms for this, in our courses on Teaching for Home Learning: Secondary Science and Primary Science.
