This pack includes a lesson plan template (in PDF and editable formats) that can help ECTs and supply teachers to structure their lessons. It may also be helpful to plan and develop ideas for a lesson that may be observed.
How can the lesson plan template support my teaching?
The template follows a simple format which can be completed quickly to help organise the structure of your lesson. The plan can be easily referred to throughout the delivery of the lesson. Assessment for learning (AfL) opportunities can be identified to check pupils’ understanding against the objective and identify next steps in learning will help teachers to plan subsequent lessons for classes and groups of pupils and ensure progression in pupils learning takes place.
How can I plan a series of English lessons to create a unit?
A weekly planning template to support teachers to plan and deliver a whole English unit for writing is also included. There is space at the start for teachers to identify the model text/s used and the intended final piece of writing that the pupils will complete, to aid teachers when planning the steps needed to build up to the final writing outcome.
The weekly planning grid can be reproduced according to the number of teaching weeks for the unit.
