I thought you would like to see this page from the Teachers TV web site...

"A look at how two teachers interpret personalised learning and use various techniques to give their pupils ownership of lessons, ensuring a high degree of engagement. Personalisation is sometimes difficult to define. Charlotte Smith, a Year 6 teacher at Victoria Primary School in Leeds, believes it's all about asking yourself not, "what do I want to teach?" but, "what do I want to learn?"

Charlotte and the school's assistant headteacher, John Crawley, put into practice their very clear ideas about personalised learning. Charlotte runs a series of lessons based on pupils producing a virtual tour of a local football stadium, while John uses a variety of personalisation techniques to teach a lesson about the angles of a triangle.

Both teachers provide practical insight into translating the theory of personalisation into actual lessons. They speak informatively about the way they use group composition and differentiated tasks to introduce a high degree of personalisation into all their teaching."

Well done to Charlotte and John and the children in Year 6 at Victoria Primary School. You can find out more and watch the programme by visiting
