A New Year, a new commitment to post a weekly poll for the Teacher Voice blog!! Here goes…
This week a discussion exploded on Twitter surrounding the writing of LO’s at the start of each lesson, how it takes up ~32 hours of education on a yearly basis and which schools still insist that LO’s are written.
According to Ofsted, it is no longer a requirement to write LOs at the start of each lesson. Some would rightly argue that it is a waste of learning time and can disrupt the flow of a lesson. Some might argue that it helps children to focus on the skills and knowledge that they are developing in that lesson.
Personally, I have my views, which I will not state here as this is a neutral poll. My school does still have children write LOs at the start of each piece of work. What about yours – does your school require chn to write an LO at the start of each piece of work? Do your children have to write LOs and if not, what do they write instead? A title? Do they have to write any kind of heading at all? If your answer is no, then I’d be interested to hear what they do instead in the comments section below.
Please post and share this so that we can get as many votes as possible to see a bigger picture!
