Excellent Marking and Feedback in English at...
It was great to walk through a real variety of superb English lessons earlier this week and see how well all teachers were enabling students to capture the detailed verbal feedback being given and use it to improve their work.

Miss Farook was displaying a completed verbal feedback sticker on her Interactive Whiteboard and was encouraging the students to pick out the key strands that were pertinent to their own learning journey – linking it to closely to a exam feedback sheet, with all the assessment objectives clearly laid out for them to use as they up-skilled their work.

Verbal Feedback to Year 11 English Students from Miss Farook

Miss Spain had encouraged her students to ‘snowball’ a short story and students were using information provided via verbal feedback to create a higher level piece of writing from their initial drafts.

Other staff were clearly using the verbal feedback stickers as one of many strategies to provide clear next steps to ensure ongoing progress and some were pre-printing these to include a focus on some of the key literacy skills being studied.
