Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.
Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***

I have looked at the judgement for whole school teaching and behaviour and included them in what you would look for when observing a lesson.
I hope that this helps.
These documents give you some information to help plan a fantastic lesson. If you are not meeting the right stuff on the grid you lesson is not good enough in ofsted speak.
Some of the stuff is older and some is newer but a blend of items from all the documents should mean that everyone avoids an unsatisfactory obs.
If you do all that it in the documents then should should be a little way there.
I keep adding things in so please check back.
I have just added a great document I got on a training course from an expert ex inspector. It has some great ideas. I just edited it a bit!

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.
