Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

The RAINBOW Continuum of Skills supports both skills progression and the acquisition of knowledge, by identifying the statutory knowledge which must be covered, alongside the RAINBOW continuum of skills which teachers should be planning and which children should be using to deepen their understanding of what they are learning.
The  RAINBOW continuum is made broadly following Bloom’s Hierarchy of Skills to give a sensible, challenging, and realistic continuum of learning.

The book supports classroom teachers in several ways:

  • To inform planning
  • To ensure progress for all
  • To ensure that teaching is differentiated to meet the needs of all abilities
  • To help teachers to decide on the pitch of lessons
  • To give criteria for assessment
  • To ensure high standards when children are applying key skills across the curriculum
