If, like me, you undertake learning walks on a weekly basis, then you will ultimately find it difficult to record? I have put together a small feedback form that can be ticked off and written on as you make your way into each class. These can then be photocopied and handed back to staff for feedback and discussion. Reduces the stress of a formal lesson observation and I feel, makes the learning walks more positive. It also gives staff a chance to have discussion(s) with those leading the Learning Walks on what has been seen during that 'snippet' of the lesson.<br />
Format can be altered/changed dependent on what your focus is for the Learning Walk. You can also add school name and logo (top left) if you require.<br />
Hopefully it is of some use?
use this template for completing informal or formal Learning Walks; Book Reviews and Faculty Reviews. Includes the Ofsted framework and should be planned alongside a whole-school cycle/calendar. Outcome of this template leads to a simple feedback report for the faculty/teacher/or year group.

Using the criteria produced by the 8 schools project activities have been introduced at the different levels. They are offered as possible ways of aiding the progression of staff and pupils to achieve a higher level of self and peer assessment. The goal being to help pupils move to more independence.
This resource has been used to provide posters across the school in classrooms. The keywords in the pyramids have been personalised by faculties (these are available). They are used by teaching staff in forming differentiated lesson objectives and for creating more challenging questions.
This resource has also been used as a page in pupils journals. A great tool for revision lessons.

Round 4 – Christmas Dingbats<br />

Its all on the powerpoint - don't show the pupils the adverts (you will need access to youtube); I have added a little comment about how long to play each one because some do say the companies name !<br />
Intended to be printed and laminated for a wall display on literary devices. Uses examples from a lot of modern films (lots of Harry Potter!) to make explanations clear and relevant to pupils.
I hope it comes in handy.
RECENTLY UPDATED (Dec 2015) - New look, overview sheet has been added, better protection, objectives edited. <br />
Assessment spreadsheets and tracking resources I've created using a 7-point system. Enter numbers 1-7 (which is explained in the introduction) into spreadsheet for learning objectives which will then calculate averages and a progress 'level' for the accompanying tracking sheets. The newly added overview sheet is a great addition which gives you an instant understanding of the current level of your children in maths, reading, writing and science. Who needs classroom monitor and the ongoing cost? This system, plus my foundation subjects tracking system (see link below), will be all your school needs for tracking progress in this 'interesting' era of assessment without levels. Please, leave feedback for this amazing resource!<br />
