Welcome To The United Kingdom

Welcome To The United Kingdom

Stephen Fry has joined forces with Heathrow Airport to produce an extremely British advert which show exactly how strange this little island is with its love of queuing, the way Brits spend half their days saying 'after you' and how we clap when people break things. The more you think about it, the weirder we seem — and to top it all off, Fry explains all this from a nice old fashioned pub, where Brits (probably) spend more time than they do in the office (!) Your students task is to discuss why they think Stephen Fry was chosen to host such a welcome and choose the perfect candidate for a welcoming sequence they will write for your own country

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!
