How can we give the support to each child when we have a class of 60 ?

It is unrealistic to expect teachers to be able to get it right for each individual .It is probably more effective in the long term to train children to become better learners so they know how to get the help they need .But we can also gain more freedom to help individuals if we put children in mixed ability groups for some activities .Stronger pupils in the group can help weaker pupils ,leaving the teacher free to monitor and work with individuals within groups who need extra support.
