These documents give you some information to help plan a fantastic lesson. If you are not meeting the right stuff on the grid you lesson is not good enough in ofsted speak. Some of the stuff is older and some is newer but a blend of items from all the documents should mean that everyone avoids an More… unsatisfactory obs. If you do all that it in the documents then should should be a little way there. I keep adding things in so please check back. I have just added a great document I got on a training course from an expert ex inspector. It has some great ideas. I just edited it a bit!

Thank you. Some inspiration to help me plan my observed lesson in these last few weeks of term when the children have lost it. I need inspiration!
