Four teaching points to help you have a successful Lesson

1. Planning is the key to good lessons; make your lessons interesting by making them visual. Use pictures and storybooks this keep the children’s attention.

2. Use a quick craft activity to show the aim of the lesson, children enjoy the activity and can take something home to remember the aim of the lesson.

3. A quick way of finding out what your class thinks is to have a class vote. Ask the children to raise their hands. Choosing activities helps the children to feel involved.

4. When you need to use a loud voice to be heard, be sure to lower it again as soon as you have the class attention. Being firm and in control helps keep the children on track.
