During the Lockdown I have had to teach (I'm a supply teacher) key workers children one day a week. The children (0nly 6) ranged from nursery to year six. I want to teach one topic but then differentiate the work. This works great for year six as a follow up to listening to the story with nursery and reception and year 1.
Thank you
