History Detectives - Asking and answering questions

History Detectives - Asking and answering questions

Two easy to use lesson plans based around the concept of asking and answering simple historical questions - why, when, where, what, who, how, can, do. Designed to get Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children thinking about the key questions they should be asking when carrying out investigations about the past, these two lessons take the children, step-by-step through the process of thinking about why we need to ask questions, how to ask questions and how to answer them based on evidence. They aren't period specific, so please feel free to adapt them to your circumstances. Aims and success criteria are included, as are downloadable resources to help you construct a lesson. All you need is here to get you going and start being creative with your thinking. I would be grateful for a review and/or feedback, so please don't be shy about letting me know if you like this resource or if you find any problems - I'd like to know how to improve for you!

Writing assessment /margin checklist / moderation bookmarks KS2 Year 3 & 4 check_edit  your writing

Writing assessment /margin checklist / moderation bookmarks KS2 Year 3 & 4 check_edit your writing

I use this resource in my class to remind my Year 3/4 children of my expectations during any writing task. They are great for quickly showing differentiation or just for reminding the children of what is expected of them . I love using the 'check your writing' bookmark as it gives the children a check list of what to look for! This resource includes: 3 differentiated writing book marks (ranging from Year 4 expected, Year 3/4 developing and E.O.Y 2 expectations for my lowers). 1 bookmark to remind how to use speech in writing. 1 bookmark to remind children of what to check in their writing. I have included the word doc so you can add/takeaway criteria. I hope these are useful and help your children with their writing. Many thanks.
