We continue to be a Research Partner School!
Millbrook was chosen to take part in a 2 year project trialling the Learner Response System (LRS). The LRS approach is based on the fact that timely and focused feedback is a powerful tool to increase the pace of learning. Year 5 & 6 have been using the handsets (LRS – the pupils have nicknamed them Pods) in their maths and English work for the last 12 months. The handsets can be used as part of a group activity, for instance as a tool to assess prior knowledge or as a plenary to plan for next steps. We have had a lot of positive feedback about the use of our ‘pods’ from pupils and other professionals. Check out our fancy new certificate of recognition!
