Prompt Description

Create a lesson-ending activity, or plenary, tailored to a specific subject, topic, and age group. This road map is designed to ensure that students not only recap what they've learned but also understand its significance and real-world applications. By emphasising reflection, engagement, collaboration, and forward-thinking, this framework ensures that every student leaves the lesson with clarity, curiosity, and a hunger for more.
Note: Prompts are provided strictly for experimentation. Users must remain cognisant of potential risks when applying them. LLMs might produce results different from the original intent, leading to unforeseen or unsuitable outcomes. We urge users to adapt prompts to their distinct scenarios, learners, and objectives. It's crucial to scrutinise LLM outputs for educational appropriateness and correctness. Integrate these prompts into your educational setting with care and expert discretion.

Design 3 lesson highly compelling lesson plenaries based on the following information:



Age of Students:


1. Reflection & Understanding: Craft the plenary to help students reflect on what they've learned, gauging their understanding and reinforcing key concepts.

2. Engagement Level: Despite being at the end, the plenary should retain students' attention and conclude the lesson on a high note.

3. Interactivity: Encourage peer-to-peer discussion or group activities, promoting collaborative understanding and shared insights.

4. Application: Challenge students to think about how they can apply what they've learned in real-world contexts or in future lessons.

5. Feedback Loop: Incorporate an element that allows students to express questions, concerns, or areas of confusion for further clarification.

6. Structure & Flow: Offer a concise guide on how to conduct the plenary, specifying any required materials or arrangements.

7. Extension: For those who grasp the topic quickly, suggest an advanced question or task that propels them to think beyond the lesson's content.

Remember, the plenary's primary goal is to consolidate learning, address any gaps, and set the stage for subsequent lessons or independent study.

One plenary should involve collaboration with peers.

One plenary should have a game element.

One plenary should be more teacher led.
