Year Group: 2nd Year No. of Pupils: 10 Length of lesson: 35 minutes

How has the previous lesson informed my planning for this lesson?
In the previous lesson students learned about mortice and tenon joints. Here students became aware of why mortice and tenon joints are
used, there advantages and why we are using this joint in our canon project. From my questioning techniques and reviewing the exit cards,
students appear to understand the key words and terms relating to mortice and tenon joints. However, I will begin the lesson recapping this
learning as it will be important moving forward in both the project and the students exams. All students in this class are ready to move on to
marking out the mortice and tenon joint at the back of the canon.


The main aims of the lesson are to: Students will be enabled to: Each LO has an assessment:
