AifL Part 5 - Learning is the Work

Lets look at an example……
• Learning experience: Using musical instruments to
tell a story.
• Learning intention: recognise what makes a piece of
writing a poem
• Success criteria: could include:
• I can pick out the rhyming words
• I can clap the rhythm of the poem
(note the product success criteria/assessment for this
would be that they could pick out a poem from
different pieces of writing/speaking)
Lets look at some examples……
Learning experience: Sharing Pizza/cake/oranges/slices coloured
Learning intention: Adding fractions with no whole numbers attached
(Process) Success criteria:
Make the bottom numbers in each fraction the same by finding a
common multiple
Multiply each top number by the same number you have multiplied the
bottom number by
Add the top numbers
If the top number is bigger than the bottom number, then change into
whole numbers and fractions
(note the product success criteria /assessment for this would be that
the answers are correct)
