Giving Feedback

I regularly give feedback in all of my lessons, both verbally and written.

This was noted by my mentor in several lesson observations. I am always keen to give children verbal feedback, especially when questioning, as it motivates and encourages children to partake fully in their learning.

I have used the schools marking policy when giving written feedback. The school uses ‘stars and wishes’ when marking, to highlight the positives in their work and the areas on which I would like the child to try and improve in their work in the future. I also am able to reward the children for especially good work, by writing a number in a bubble, which symbolise the number of ‘good  marks’ awarded to the children.

 

TARGET: Continue to look at other methods of giving feedback to children.

Assessment – tracking progress

Capture 2

Above is an example of a tracking grid that I created to monitor the progress of children through each lesson.

I update the tracking grid during and at the end of each lesson. I use both formative (observations, questioning, discussions) and summative (children’s work, assessments) assessment to fill in the grid.

This has allowed me to see the progression that children have made, as well as set targets and guide pupils to stretch and challenge them.

TARGET: Continue to develop knowledge of statutory assessment requirements.
