1. Starter / Warm up Prompt start – Get them into the habit of self starting with: An independent warm up or equipment set up. A creative challenge in pairs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rmjHUwi-rc
“ Students should expect to start work as soon as they come into the classroom, without you directing them. Jackie Beere (2012) The Perfect Ofsted Lesson - revised and updated
Steps to ‘Outstanding’ 2. Learning Outcomes What do you want them to be able to do by the end of the lesson? Describe it simply & exactly in two levels (at least) for differentiation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmDsWn_ffao
Steps to ‘Outstanding’ 3. High expectations Do you have consistency in your lessons? Kit, behaviour, quality of work, expectations of progress in lessons, rewards & sanctions.
“ Setting high expectations is the single most important thing you can do to ensure good progress in learning. Make sure specific groups of students are aware of what they need to do to make progress. Jackie Beere (2012) The Perfect Ofsted Lesson - revised and updated
Steps to ‘Outstanding’ 4. Challenge, Collaboration & Choice Challenge is the way to ensure that expectations are high and learners are working to make progress in their learning. Collaboration ensures that students work together, independently of the teacher, to achieve the ‘brilliant outcomes’. Resilience! Choice of tasks engages the learners and makes them feel committed to the task. Higher order blooms taxonomy: Get them to Create, Evaluate etc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDOY03uifxo
Steps to ‘Outstanding’ 5. Dedicate Improvement & Reflection Time Move from group to group facilitating learning. Ask higher order questions that you don’t answer! Give feedback to ensure students understand how to improve their work. Get them to assess their work and amend it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhCPZ14jsCI
“ Working to redraft, improve and amend against success criteria and acting on constructive criticism is a vital part of the learning journey Jackie Beere (2012) The Perfect Ofsted Lesson - revised and updated
Steps to ‘Outstanding’ 6. Plenary Sum up the learning outcomes. Get them to discuss and share their key developments in the lesson. Sticky notes to record things they have learned, placed on the door on exit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TFSwwBFHD_4

Lesson… L/O’s: Level 5 Plan, evaluate & change strategies and tactics to bring about success in net games. Towards: Create a plan to score as many points as you can to target zones of the court. At: Evaluate how effective your game plan was at achieving your goal then changing/improve it. Beyond: Analyse the strengths and weaknesses of your opponents to inform your plans and changes.
Lesson… Starter Students came in and set up equipment in their groups. Did pairs warm ups, pre organised to ensure quick paced start. Introduced L/O’s after warm up, with 3 differentiated outcomes.
Lesson… Tasks Blue, Yellow, Green groups (all different). Success criteria decided by students (assessed by teacher). Q&A intervened to ensure progress maintained/maximised. Students reviewed progress against criteria and improved their work. Moved them on when they were ready.
Lesson… Plenary Reviewed own/collaborative progress towards targets. Discussed what they had learnt and implemented well. Shared what they think they will change next time.
