From the 3 outstanding lessons he observed last week, he explains the 6 characteristics the lessons shared that made them brilliant:
1.  Lessons were very well planned and resourced
2. There were good relationships between the teacher and students with consistent classroom protocols in place
3. Lessons had clear learning outcomes and learning was reviewed at appropriate times during the lesson
4. The teachers explicitly referred to the learning behaviours and skills required to be successful (resilience, responsible etc..)
5. Lessons were differentiated and there were a choice of resources for the students
6. Students were active in their learning and thinking
