                                           Check list for planning an outstanding lesson!
   Have you communicated clear objectives to the pupils: what all, most and some will be able to do?

   Have you stated how the work connects to previous learning?

   Is there a warmer (this may be a game/ activity to re-cap previous learning)?

   Is the lesson planned carefully and effectively to give the pupils the opportunity to achieve the objective?

   Do you demonstrate your good subject knowledge and understanding?

   Do the pupils work at the appropriate level and make good progress in the lesson and over time?

   Do you use a range of whole class, group, pair and individual work?

   Do you cover a range of skills? Listening, speaking, reading and writing.

   Have you praised the pupils? House points!

   Are the pupils engaged and enthusiastic?

   Are tasks differentiated whenever possible? Remember directed questioning is an example of differentiation. Have you planned for SEN pupils
    and considered pupil’s prior knowledge?

   Are your exercise books marked? Is there appropriate feedback?

   Do you shoe formative and/or summative assessment? Do you use peer assessment?

   Do you give appropriate feedback to students in the classroom e.g. if they ask a question or if they make a mistake in a task?

   If you have support staff are they used effectively?

   Is your classroom bright, orderly and welcoming? Is pupil’s work displayed?

   Do you encourage the students to be independent learners?

   Are your resources effective and stimulating?

   Is time used effectively?

   Do you have high expectations of pupil‟s behaviour?
      Does the homework reinforce and extend learning?

      Is there a plenary? This may be a game/activity/ questioning to test what the students have learnt.

      Have you stated how this lesson connects to lessons to come?
