I am a year 1 teacher and we have some observations coming up by the headteacher next week. She is going to do snap shot observations like Ofsted will do. We have to be able to show that the children are progressing within that 20 minutes snapshot. Are there any tips or key things we can do to show this progression? I'm finding it quite difficult to get my head around. It's not too bad if the observation is during the plenary or main activity, but how do we show progession during the introduction part of the lesson?
