These activities should occupy the first 5 - 10 minutes of the lesson. Main teaching activity: Decide how much teacher input you will provide for the main activity and whether pupils will be working individually, in pairs or as a group. Depending upon the abilities of the pupils in your class, decide whether any additional activities will be needed, from the list provided, or whether these can be used during subsequent lessons. This activity should occupy approximately 40 minutes.
Plenary: Decide what opportunities will be provided during the plenary session.
Will pupils be given the opportunity to share and explain work, compare strategies used or summarise the key facts they have learnt? Think about how you can use the plenary session to assess pupils' progress and therefore inform your future planning. The plenary should occupy the final 15 minutes of the lesson.
