The LO for an observed lesson (not mine) is: Use (amazing) adjectives One criticism was that the LO wasn't 'tight' enough. The class was a year 2 (not mine so I don't know exactly how the lesson panned out) and the LA children finished off sentence starters with an adjective and noun. The MA wrote sentences with an adjective and noun and the MA paragraphs with adjectival phrases and some similes. The focus was on the adjectives used. The context was arrival on the deck of the Titanic in Southampton and using senses to describe the scene. What should the LO have been to be 'tighter'? And apparently the lesson wasn't ok for year 2 either. What else could children have done to make it better? There was drama, pair talk, whiteboard work, modelling of writing and all sorts before the children actually wrote.
