Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Children often know more about science that we think; sometimes they just donʼt have the skills to write down their ideas. I wrote this book because I have a strong belief that all children, whatever their literacy levels, should be given the opportunity to share what they know about science. Over the years, Iʼve developed a range of alternative recording methods that allow children to express their knowledge and learning. These have been tried and tested in the classroom. This book outlines these methods, gently guiding the reader through each one. I cover what each recording method looks like, the reason behind using it, some ideas on how to incorporate it into a lesson and how to use it to assess children. My hope is that this book will show teachers that there are ways to record and assess science that are fun and creative and that generate enthusiasm in the classroom. Most importantly - they donʼt involve an exercise book. By using these methods youʼll find that children, particularly those who lack the ability to get things down on paper, will demonstrate an amazing science understanding. They just needed to be given the chance to express it their way! This book was written for primary Teachers but the ideas can be used in secondary schools as well.
Snow White Lesson Pack Set A

Snow White Lesson Pack Set A

Four lesson detailed plans based on the Grimm's Tale of Snow White. This pack is the first of a series of stand alone packs to use the magical story as inspirational for creative and exciting lessons for young children, this time focusing on the Magic Mirror, Drama and English activities. Most suitable for EYFS and Key Stage 1, but easily adaptable and hugely enjoyable for older children too, these lessons contain clear aims and success criteria for each session, ideas and indications for how the lessons can develop and progress. Differentiation is catered for, and specially tailored activities and tasks are included in the plans to help support and stretch all abilities. The Drama lessons ask the children to develop their skills in mirroring and copying each other, in a co-operative and happy environment, with opportunities for role-play and interaction skill development. Role-play also features in the English lessons, as they look at how to ask and answer written and oral questions. Suggested prior knowledge, requirements and resources are all included in the plans, so you can pick them up and use them, knowing exactly what you need to know, what the children to know, what you need and where you can get things from too if necessary. Notes have been added to make everything as simple as possible, so that you can use the lessons easily.
