AS PART OF our core subjects series this term, we visited the science department at Gateway Academy.
As we have said before, these lessons are not ofsted and not crits but simply give a flavour of what is happening in each school at the business end.
Here is a fascinating lesson which is a bit like a Rolf Harris painting. At the beginning, we are not sure how it will all come together but as the lesson progresses, the year 8 students “get it”
At the end of each piece and we do the same here, we interview a student and ask them, what they gained from the lesson and how they learned from the lesson.
