A maths lesson about shapes is analysed by experts Education experts Malcolm Reed and Alison Fletcher analyse a maths lesson taught by teacher Pritti Poole at Wyndcliffe Primary in Birmingham. Pritti is teaching a lesson on 2D and 3D shapes to a mixed ability class. For the main activity she splits the class into 5 groups based on ability and, in effect, teaches 5 mini lessons concurrently. Malcolm and Alison evaluate her methods of teaching, focusing on Pritti’s techniques for helping the children, whatever their ability, to become independent learners. You can see the whole of the lesson on the Teachers TV website in Uncut Classrooms: Maths.
