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.
Ahoy there! Get your pirate topic off to a swashbuckling start with this collection of planning and 36 teaching resources.<br />
The fully editable planning file meets the requirements of the current EYFS.<br />
The medium term overview details possible learning experiences, learning objectives and resources for each of the 7 areas of the EYFS curriculum.<br />
The short term planning has a grid for each area of learning, showing learning objectives, resources, learning experiences and 'look, listen and note' guidance. There are 52 learning experiences planned in total, suitable to use over a half term topic.<br />
This topic is aimed at Reception, although it could be adapted for younger children. <br />
Many of the resources support the activities described in the planning pack. They include writing opportunities, simple texts to decode, thinking skills games, maths activities, vocabulary cards and more.
These poster templates are designed to help students structure their revision for the A451 exam.<br />
Designed to be printed/photocopied in A3, these poster templates can be filled in/annotated by the students as part of the revision process. They will then have a valuable revision resource that they can take home and stick on their wall.<br />

This is taken from the DRAFT inspection criteria.
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!
This is a form complements the OFSTED criteria grid that I have produced
I have put some key questions at the top that the observe needs to consider
Based on Training I have recieved:
Satifactory is if most pupils are making progress in-line to achieve their target/predicted grade (value added of 0) (3 levels of progress)
Good is if most pupils are in-line to achieve above their target grade, (+ value added) (~4 Levels of progress)
Outstanding is if almost all pupils are in-line to achieve above their target grade, (+ value added) (~4 Levels of progress)
Secondary schools are expected to integrate SEAL learning out comes into their lessons from Sept 2007. This is resource just saves you the hassle of looking it up and writing it out for yourself. Please ignore spelling mistakes my fingers type slower than my eyes read.

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.
