I am feeling rather low - I had a 1 hour English lesson to do on creative writing. Y4 class of 20 ch (I researched in advance and class teacher was amazingly supportive) I had props for the ch to touch, feel, etc , got them to think of amazing adjectives and then gave them a scaffold for a sensory poem (in a nutshell - we built up a word bank on board). I didn't group them but worked round the class to help them all individually. I got told my lesson didn't ensure progress for all children. I am just not sure how I could do that with a class I didn't know in 1 hour. If it had been the 1st lesson of term for example I might well give them all the same activity and then use it to help decide what their own next steps should be. I believe the more able children did make more progress than the less able from what I saw, and in the AFL at the end I picked random ch who were able to read some wonderful poetry. Can anybody help me please - I didn't ask what I could have done differently as I was so surprised. Thank you!
