    Hi
    I would be really grateful if any experienced heads could offer me a little advice?
    I have my first DH interview in a couple of week and have to teach a 20 minutes Literacy lesson.
    My question is as a Head would you prefer to see a nice safe good lesson or would it be better to go for it, head for the WOW factor even though it may not quite work out. Is is best to play it safe or take a risk?
    Thanks

  3. I want to see engaged and enthused learners that make progress and you using AfL to ensure it happens. Which will do that?
    Good luck!
     
  4. Ditto - jump around dressed as Henry VIII if you like but make sure whatever you do passes the OFSTED 'So what?' test i.e. do the children appear to have learnt something new as a result of your teaching. That's not to say that you should simply 'play it safe' - only that the learning shouldn't be lost in the performance.
