Getting the Basics Right

What simple things do we need to be making sure we have in place?

Make sure all pupils feel relaxed and safe.Start and finish the lesson in the target language.Monitor noise levels.Make sure all pupils have the equipment they need, providing checklists if necessary.Ensure boards and printouts are in an off-white colour.Enlarge resources if necessary.

Getting the basics right

Differentiation is responsive teaching

differentiating by content

How do we use resources to support curriculum content for SEND pupils?

Using signing and visual clues to support new vocabulary learned.Images linked to vocabulary in the form of flashcards, pairs cards or on displays.Supporting phonic learning by combining action/image/phoneme and grapheme.

Differentiating by content: visual supports

In our current remote learning situation sites such as 'Word Wall' and 'Learning Apps', allow us to make a variety of resources, including flashcards and games like 'pairs', which also include images and audio.

Differentiation by Content: Supporting listening

Cloze activity

Online option

Shorter versions of the same text.Illustrations to support understanding.Use of glossary rather than dictionary.

Differentiation by Content: Getting to grips with reading

Using online dictionaries can sometimes be more helpful than physical ones, as long as children are taught the same strategies of checking the word type to ensure they make the correct translation.

Trapdoor-style activities

Children understand the colour-coding system and can go as far as they feel comfortable in their sentence-building. Adaptable versions of 'Trapdoor' have been shared on LIPs by @MarieAllirot.

DIFFERENTIATION BY CONTENT: SCAFFOLDING SPEAKING AND WRITING

The children still have access to the same 'content' in the form of vocabulary and structures relating to the singular and plural but decide on how far they want to extend their sentences.

Use manipulatives to allow children to move words around before committing pen to paper.Colour-code words according to their word class to support understanding.

DIFFERENTIATION BY CONTENT: SCAFFOLDING SPEAKING AND WRITING

Colour-coding of nouns, along with an image, as well as clear translations of key vocabulary are helpful when doing retrieval practice at the start of lessons.

differentiating by Process

How are we supporting pupils to process the content?

Use groupings effectively - mixed ability pairings and groupings have been proven to be very effective for children with SEND.Songs and rhymes and great for helping SEND pupils process new language and remember it.Allow "wait time" when questioning, to allow learners to process at their own pace or "pre-ask" questions so that they can prepare.Pre-teach tricky concepts to allow time for children to process.Allow children "partner talk" time to come up with an answer collaboratively or use "tell me what you partner said."

Do children have ownership of their outcomes?

Children create their writing and highlight the 'features' as they go.Previous years' statements are also included for SEND pupils.

Differentiation by product: writing self-assessment

Use starter activities to get children to revist prior learning.Retrieval grids, spinners, dice, Jenga, anything that makes it fun to go back and see what they can remember.

Revisit, revisit, revisit

Anything we do to support SEND pupils will have a positive impact on the learning of the whole class.
