Do you still use WALT?

It just seems so old-fashioned! I do supply/ppa cover at a local primary school and children have to write a WALT for every single lesson. Then the children have to assess the WALT at the end of each lesson. When marking, teachers then either disagree or agree with the child's self-assessment. It seems like such a waste of time and I hate writing 'I agree' or some other inane comment. Do any of you still use it and find it worthwhile? If it were replaced with LO I think I would cringe a little less, maybe it is just the acronym I can't stand grin

As long as you use ‘We All Now Know’ at the end of the lesson....

We are told to do it in P1-3. Further up the school they write out LI and endless success criteria. I write a WALT on the board at the start of the lesson but don't get the children to write it out as it would take some of them all day.

It makes me wonder how we ever managed to learn anything without writing out all this shite.

WALT and WILF characters shock. A whole new world of madness.

Yep still doing it.
Often it’s pre-printed to save time- the kids just stick it in.
