Example text

This lesson was probably planned in his head, and my guess is that none of it was written down. The fact that I remember this lesson some twenty years later is a mark of how significant it was for me. Planning is commonly described in three levels: short term, medium term and long term. Short-term planning is usually daily or weekly. Medium-term planning refers to planning for terms and half terms. Long-term planning tends to mean planning for a year or more. It is useful to think about the NLS Framework for Teaching (DfEE 1998a) for examples of these different levels of planning.

The main part of Framework for Teaching consists of lists of objectives that have to be taught at specified times during the year. These objectives have been designed to support the National Curriculum programmes of study for English, reading and writing in particular (most of the programmes of study for speaking and listening are not included in the NLS Framework for Teaching). The framework covers the years from the final term in reception up to year 6 and as such is a long-term plan. In the framework folder, examples are given of recommended medium- and short-term planning formats that teachers are strongly encouraged to adopt.

The benefits of this system were that you had maximum flexibility, great scope for differentiation and real opportunities for individualised learning. The difficulties for the teacher were the sheer numbers of activities that could be ongoing at any one time. There were criticisms that some teachers ended up monitoring which activities children had done, or were currently doing, more than actually teaching them. However, the system was based on the belief that there was much learning that children could do independently of the teacher, an idea which does not feature in recent initiatives.
