Each Assignment contains 15 questions on a curriculum topic. These questions will be the first 15 within our question bank and so will introduce the topic from the very beginning and focus mainly on fluency.

3) Providing scaffolded support during lessons.
When children who have been set an Assignment log in after the date and time selected, the red Assignment icon in their Learning Zone will be flashing to let them know that there is work to complete.
