Powerful Learning Conversations taking place at Mullion School

Mullion School was one of ten selected in the summer term to be part of a pilot study being carried out by the Youth Sport Trust and University of Exeter looking into how verbal feedback and learning conversations can boost attainment in English and Maths.  The school is very excited to be part of this cross-curricular project which is being led by three teachers representing Maths, English and PE.

The Education Endowment Fund identified that feedback is perhaps the most effective way of improving attainment and this study is looking into how verbal feedback and conversations can help this.  Last week Year 9 pupils and teachers from Maths and English took part in a workshop to introduce the project and engage in conversations.  They were shown examples from PE lessons of pupils developing skills through engaging in verbal feedback conversations with each other rather being solely reliant on staff for this.  Following this the year group were asked to give feedback to improve a piece of artwork before reflecting on what they felt were the requirements of a powerful learning conversation.

The school will be working with the Year 9s over the year and training both staff and pupils in the giving and receiving of verbal feedback before assessing its impact.  As part of this project the Year  group will work with an international sports performer later this term.
