Support for less able students in year 7 based on the KS2 curriculum

Includes an introduction to problem solving for weaker pupils


Materials to develop thinking skills and problem solving strategies for pupils who arrive in year 7 below the expected standard, or barely at the standard. These resources are based around an approach that has proven successful in KS2, and are intended as starter activities for the whole class.

The pack includes 

  • 10 copies of each title in the booklet range 
  • On CD or USB 45 discussion powerpoint problems at three different levels. These can be used to support 'catch up' or as a general classroom resource to introduce problem solving.
  • Also included on CD or USB, to support the least able, are 20 planned 'catch up' sessions (10 for very weak students and 10 aimed at those below the expected standard). These may be managed by support staff in small groups if appropriate.
