I shared the 5 Minute Lesson Plan on Twitter. Since then, it has taken on a life of its own. Over the past four years, I have been developing a digital version with Angel Solutions - we have released our new beta version.

You can sign up here for a 2-week trial.

Now with many versions, translated into several languages and available for free on Teacher Toolkit website. Visit here.

Designed to reduce planning time and focus on key learning phases within a lesson.

Lesson planning is a habit of thought, not a form filling exercise. So, why use the 5 Minute Lesson Plan? Useful for coaching and mentoring newly qualified teachers; or with established colleagues for paired observations; designed to help teachers consider the cognitive processes required in lesson planning. Stick-ability = What will stick in students minds as they leave your lesson? What key point do you want them to remember? (supports teacher clarity and memory)

Remember, watchdogs no longer require a lesson plan for lessons, but evidence of a planned lesson! However, your teacher-training provider may require (sadly) detailed lesson plans! If that’s the case, be brave and use this - lesson planning templates are for you and your pupils, not for an observer…
