Hi, new poster here with a new job to start this new year.
Im working as an intervention teacher for the next 2 terms. It's a small group of low achieving year 5 pupils, when I start on Monday its assessment week so that shouldnt be too hard. However, after that I will be teaching to their specific needs. I have met the children and the majority have EAL.
Is there a specific intervention programme I can use for maths and lit?
I'm really not sure how to plan for this type of work, I cannot follow age specific planning as the children are working at 1b/a in both maths and lit.
If it's intervention work, you'll have to wait to see what 'problems are flagged up' by the assessments and then plan as you go.
