|Description||Learners develop success criteria for quality questions and use a series of short tasks to activate their prior understanding and build on it. They are posed challenging questions that ensure their success criteria and the justification for them is as high level as possible. Having developed and refined their success criteria, learners evaluate other groups’ criteria before making final amendments to their own success criteria for using in the future. All Rich Activities are available to buy in English and Welsh.|

|Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students||
A range of engaging and exciting rich activities for use in the classroom to improve learners’ literacy and numeracy skills, as in the LNF. These activities will be posted to school on a memory stick. These can then be printed in-school when needed.
The activities also aim to develop learners’ problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills. Each rich activity has Teacher’s notes, to show how it links with the curriculum and the LNF, instructions as to how to prepare for and carry out the activity, and a grid demonstrating which elements/aspects of the LNF could be assessed. Each rich activity covers several teaching hours and is broken up into a number of tasks, to be used with pairs or groups of learners, with focus questions to elicit understanding.
|Evidence underpinning this approach||
Learners develop success criteria for quality questions and use a series of short tasks to activate their prior understanding and build on it. They are posed challenging questions that ensure their success criteria and the justification for them is as high level as possible. Having developed and refined their success criteria, learners evaluate other groups’ criteria before making final amendments to their own success criteria for using in the future.
LNF links: literacy
Curriculum links: This activity has been written to improve learners’ generic questioning skills and therefore can fit into any subject area.
|How users/participants can evaluate success||
The rich activities in themselves can be used to assess learners' current position and develop next steps for improvement. In addition, baseline test outcomes on Literacy and/or Numeracy can be compared with evidenced outcomes from the rich activity.
|Follow-up activities and support||
Further rich activities are available to be used with learners from Foundation Phase to Key Stage 3. To view the full range of rich activities on offer visit www.thinklearnchallenge.com/pick-n-mix.html or contact [email protected] .
