Summary: questioning and inferring learning
- Encourages you to try out some of the ideas you have seen this week with your students and consider what you can infer from the evidence you are gathering.
- Highlights that next week we will be exploring in more detail how we can plan to respond to the learning we are evidencing in our classrooms.
Example of Gimme 5 – Primary maths, when learning how to subtract using the column method. Students have to produce 5 different examples of column subtraction that do need exchanging and give the answer 245.
