They’ll be another one in 5 minuets, by Adisa The Poet

Picture this,
The big picture in a frame
Start the engine
Shift into objectives gear
Clear the screen
See the goal ahead
Apply yourself to stick ability
When and only when
Engagement is assured
Pause for a moment at the AFL lights
Check your rear mirror
What’s behind you?
And what still needs to be faced
Look out of the window
Spot the keywords that light the way
Explore the many levels
Onboard this Differentiation bus
We move towards one destination
How many learning episodes
Appear in your classroom opera
Are they teacher or student led?
Read the plenary prayer
And put the 5-minute lesson plan to bed.
