Observed Lesson Plan Template\n\nHere is a simple lesson plan for an observed lesson. Although I initially designed this plan for a KS2 numeracy lesson, I think it could be adapted to suit a range of subjects and age groups. \n\nI hope it helps or at least saves you some time!
Designed to reduce planning time & focus on key learning phases within a lesson. (Will still require thinking!) Remember - Sept. 2014 - Ofsted no longer require a lesson plan for lessons, but evidence of ‘a planned lesson!’ Useful for coaching and mentoring NQTs; or with established colleagues for paired observations. “Stickability” = What will stick in students minds as they leave your lesson? What key point do you want them to remember? Now translated into 8 languages. Pin your plan? bit.ly/5MinMapped Contact me @TeacherToolkit Updated Oct 2014
Has that pile of books been sitting on your desk for over a week? Why not print out some stickers and get sticking! I use a range of stickers to encourage student feedback. It's an excellent way to save some time but also encourage a dialogue. Credit to A. Wilkes for inspiration. You will require various label size papers but there are some standard envelope ones. Sticker sizes include: standard address label, 25x25, 64x64 and others. Comments are appreciated. This paper can be purchased online and put into any printer. Comments are appreciated.

Ideal If you are leading on KS3 Curriculum development in your school (Especially good if you are new to post) add me on @thenortherner19
I have devised this curriculum which completely remodels our approach to assessment, planning, reporting, tracking and intervention. You will find enclosed my strategy for the implementation of this new curriculum. I have checker all resources and they should download well. Please contact me through tes chat if there is an issue.
1. A development plan for Curriculum, Literacy and Pupil Premium
2. An initial presentation made to teachers regarding the changes to the curriculum. supporting resources for this include:
- A timeline for Curriculum development
- Example of an agreed SoW format and lesson plan format to be used
- An example of grading criteria to be used in science each department devised their own grading criteria based on the Draft specifications at GCSE and their current knowledge. These grading criteria have been used to plan the assessments throughout KS3.
3. A KS3 development timeline
4. Presentation to parents explaining the new curriculum (this was extremely well received by parents)
5. A parental questionnaire that was used on the New curriculum information evening
6 A booklet to be shared with parents after launch, detailing the curriculum model (This is a good place to start reading on this strategy)
7 1-9 grade forecasts for all subjects. This has been used to set target grades for our pupils. We have used transition matrices to complete the flight paths to 9-1. Once the targets are in place you can enter the KS2 data into the spreadsheet to see how those forecasts will look in terms of a performance profile of each year group.
8. Please leave me some feedback
A perfect activity for the start of a new school year. Completely customisable for your own school rules. Three spaces provided for the class to personalise the classroom rules. Pupils can draw in the boxes provided or write about the rules.
