You paint an outside wall. It rains. What happens to the paint? It runs off, of course! So it is with our students. We teach them something. We can't be bothered to do the recap, the plenary, as we don't have any ideas. They leave the lesson. They promptly forget what you have taught them. There was no point their being in the lesson in the practical book of plenaries does what it says. It delivers a series of simple ideas for how to make your lesson endings - or mid-lesson recaps - interesting, engaging and cognitively challenging. Apply the ideas in this book and your students will leave the lesson with the information you have taught them still in their heads.

I found Phil Beadle's latest book, which focuses upon the importance of 'plenaries' -- the summing up of learning in a lesson -- really useful and engaging as well. If I'm honest, it's a part of my teaching repertoire that I could do with significantly improving since too often I don't plan for my plenaries in a satisfactory fashion. Phil shows how the latest educational research by experts like Hattie, Wiliam and host of other teachers indicates that when you get the plenary right you attain much better results and improve children's learning generally. I really like the no-nonsense tips like ending lessons with the learning objectives and starting with a gag; they're workable and don't involve tonnes of preparation. As ever with Phil's books -- and work generally -- thoroughly recommended. He's a very rare voice of sanity and good fun in an increasingly dogmatic and dispiriting educational landscape.Francis Gilbert author of 'I'm A Teacher, Get Me Out Of Here',
