Lesson inserts take the form of ‘bite-size’ resources that further support practitioners contextualise meta-skills within learning and teaching.
These resources are intended to be slotted in to lessons at an appropriate time to help learners deepen their understanding of a particular meta-skill or group of meta-skills.
