Diwali :: Deepawali :: The Festival Of Lights A creative way to decorate your classroom for Diwali, the festival of lights. Your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these beautiful Diwali Lanterns. These units are designed in a Mix & Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities. Over the centuries, Diwali has become a national festival that is enjoyed by most Indians regardless of faith: Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs. Diwali, or Deepawali, is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that are lit outside homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. This festival is as important to Hindus as the Christmas holiday is to Christians Diwali is an official holiday in Fiji, Guyana, India, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and recently Sindh Province in Pakistan.

Key Stage 1: Teacher Toolkit (linked to Target Tracker)

Key Stage 1: Teacher Toolkit (linked to Target Tracker)

I devised this teacher toolkit/handbook for Key Stage 1. It is a complete document (117 pages) that allows any teacher to teach KS1. It also allows senior leaders and governors to see a complete overview of Key Stage 1. It can be used for monitoring, performance management target setting and ensures that all teachers (new and old :-) are teaching to the same framework. My school is 1 and half form intake so it also caters for a 1/2 class. It has been designed to work in conjunction with Target Tracker as this is our school assessment system It consists of: editable action plan, mapped english and maths (white rose hub) overviews, writing assessment sheets, english and maths tracker sheets (department for education), reading scheme assessment sheets, mapped topic overview, medium term topic objective sheets (can be published directly to your school website to show coverage), short term topic planning sheet, maths and english planning templates, guided reading mapped Y1 and 2 objective sheets, guided reading planning templates, computing overview linked to Target Tracker objectives, Y2 Flat Stanley unit planning, Y2 The Jolly Postman unit planning, Y2 Place Value planning, Y2 Addition and Subtraction Planning. It is intended that it can be printed off as one document and then spiral bound. It can also be supplemented with your own school's systems if necessary. Hope it helps!
