Shaw use a skills wheel (designed by Tom Robson: tredu.co.uk) to support teachers and pupils track class development of enquiry skills.
The wheel is displayed on the wall and referred to in the lesson. Starting from the centre segments are coloured in when the majority of the class have demonstrated use of the skill in the lesson.
The first wedge in the centre is coloured in if the teacher has taught the skill. Subsequent wedges are coloured when the teacher feels that the majority of the class have achieved then embedded the skill. The class skills wheel can be passed on to the class’s next teacher.
