Scaffolds to support learning in PE

A video camera close up

When planning expositions and activities that support pupils’ needs, keep in mind that it is key for pupils to obtain a high success rate in the tasks that they attempt (Rosenshine 2012). For pupils who require additional support, ensuring success does not mean differentiating by providing less challenging tasks. Indeed it is a common misconception […]
