Strech & Challenge
Starter / Bridge
Starters are about lively, engaging openings to lessons. Their aim is to engage all learners and establish a sense of pace and challenge. How can starters contribute to learning?
Their flexibility means that teachers can use starter activities to prepare for new learning, revisit and practise important skills, consolidate knowledge from or make links with previous lessons (bridging) and assist memorisation.
