Private Peaceful - Year 9 top band NQT formal Observation... help

    Hi everyone,

    I am suffering with end of term imagination loss and would welcom as many ideas as people are willing to give!

    I have my formal NQT observation lesson on Friday this week with my high ability year 9 class (30 pupils). I have been teaching Private Peaceful by Morpurgo. We havn't finished reading the whole novel (we are 2/3 of the way through) however I would be happy to print out some extracts from further on in the novel to focus on if needs be!

    I obviously want to show that I am thinking of my high ability pupils, and would like to show as many skills as I can- Starter, Main, Plenary, AFL etc... but I obviously don't want to overload the lesson so content goes out the window. It goes without saying that I want my pupils to demonstrate they have learned something, but I also want to show I am a good teacher.

    Does any one have any good ideas as to what I could do in the lesson content/ activity wise?

    Thank you in advance... 25 days until Christmas.... (or more importantly 17 days until the end of term! :)

    It would really help to know where you're up to. The gas attack is definitey a good section to do some focused language work.

    Thank you for your replies.

    I had a good think last night and did decide on the gas attack- I am doing some focused language work with that compared to Dulce et Decorum Est..

    Thank you for replying, roll on christmas.. :)
