Learning Lunch – Beat The Clock

photo 1 - Copybeat the clockThe Learning Lunch this month was a race against time. Who could sort out that lesson (or set of lessons) or homework that just needed some spicing up, in the time it took to munch through a few sandwiches and a muffin? Staff gathered together to talk through their ideas and get help from the T&L team to create the resources they needed.

Helen Wilson worked with the Economics team to generate ideas for revision lessons for year 11 and Zoe Shepherd showed teachers the Plenary Review Grid (there are lots of references to this on-line but I couldn’t find the original author – apologies if you are reading and it is you).
