Physical education Primary
I am a year three student, specialising in (KS2) PE and am researching the effect of different teaching styles on pupils' learning. I have read Mosston and Ashworth's work and also a few journal articles. However, I was wondering if you could find some research into learning styles in primary PE lessons.
Mixed years I am a Scitt student doing a child study. I am interested in how mixed year classes affect children's learning, specifically Key Stage 2 year 3/4.

Teacher placement Collaboration
Teacher placement Collaboration I am interested in learning more about research into how trainee teachers collaborate with each other whilst on placement in different schools. It may be that some teacher educators have used a Virtual Learning Environment to facilitate this. Any suggestions? This is related to another question: how do we encourage creativity in our trainees? so maybe the question should be: what research is there into collaborative creativity amongst beginning teachers?
English as an additional language
Can you find examples of the use of children's first language (EAL) in the mainstream subject classroom for teaching and learning from KS1 to KS4? I might add that I am aware of DfES/National Strategies documents/policies on this. I am looking for actual examples perhaps from local authority projects, HE action research projects – with evidence of effectiveness, etc.
Science Mixed ability
Science Mixed ability I have a Key Stage 3 (year7) science class, which is mixed ability. Is their any research on the effects of such a diverse mix of abilities in science lessons and achievement and behaviour? Also any information on how grouping affects their learning in science would be helpful.

Yes he can: Schools where boys write well (HMI 505)
This is a report from her Majesty’s Inspectors of Schools (HMI) into the factors which contribute to boys’ success in writing. Seven primary and eight secondary schools, identified as achieving good results overall and demonstrating success in closing the gender ‘gap’ in performance, were visited between April 2002 and March 2003. A literature search and an analysis of existing inspection evidence were used to identify factors to be evaluated on these inspection visits. As is perhaps to

Visual displays For part of my dissertation I am looking for evidence/research on the use of visual displays/wall displays in regards to learning in school. I have searched the ttrb resource bank using keywords and cannot access anything specific enough. I really would like evidence to support my claim that displays can be effective, inclusive teaching and learning tools.
Raising Boys’ Achievements in Writing
This UKLA/PNS (2004) publication presents the findings of an apparently successful project designed to raise boys’ engagement, motivation and achievements in writing. The research design built on findings from DfES (2003) Raising Boys' Achievement (2003), the Essex Writing Project (2002; 2003), and CLPE (The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education) research (2001; 2004). The project used a planning and teaching model which addressed visual and oral approaches to teaching and learning.
IT for Education Research: using new technology: Teaching and Learning Research Briefing No. 16 (TLR
This briefing paper is number 16 in a series, which are available from the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) website (www.tlrp.org). It provides an account of the information technology infrastructure which supports the research community served by the TLRP. The paper discusses the rationale and benefits of three types of online tools; a Digital Repository for project publications and other resources, a collaborative Virtual Research Environment (VRE), and Dissemination Tools for t
Literacy Play I am writing my dissertation on to what degree play is used to teach literacy in reception class, and are there any underlying pressures which may cause literacy to be taught more formally. Therefore, I'd appreciate the names of any journal articles I could use in my research - focusing on how play is used to teach literacy in reception - why teaching of literacy in reception is becoming more formal - finding the correct balance of formal learning and play based learning in recept
