Editable lesson plan template

This editable lesson plan template has space for you to make notes about ‘prior learning’ and ‘next lesson’. This allows you to build on students’ existing knowledge and seamlessly transition from one lesson to the next.

The ‘lesson outcome’ and ‘differentiated learning objectives’ will help you to support personalised learning, catering to the diverse needs of your students. This includes those with special educational needs (SEN) or advanced educational needs (AEN), and gifted and talented (G&T) pupils.

Incorporating differentiation, learning progression and various learning styles, such as flip learning or active learning, encourages a dynamic and engaging classroom environment. Elements like ‘independent learning’, ‘group work’ and ‘peer work’ promote collaboration and critical thinking skills.

Thinking about ‘self-assessment’ and ‘peer assessment’ tasks in advance will help your students reflect on their progress and improve their understanding.

By including a starter, plenary, extension and stretch questions, you’ll keep lessons engaging and challenging. Additionally, making a note of health and safety considerations and additional members of staff will help you to maintain a safe and well-managed classroom.
