Planning effective lessons can take up a considerable amount of time for primary class teachers. Sue Drury shares a lesson plan template created by the team at Plazoom and explains information that is needed when planning lessons that engage, inspire and ensure progress for all pupils within the class. This session explores the use of success criteria, planning activities, direct teaching, differentiation and the use of the Interactive Whiteboard. This guidance will help teachers include only information necessary when planning individual lessons, freeing up time for them to be creative, using their skills and expertise to plan exciting lessons for their class.
