KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

A collection of 55 terms relating to Archaeology and the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age). Based closely on the content of our KS2 learning workshops, which specifically address the 2014 National Curriculum statutory unit “Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.” The Old Stone Age is the starting point against which other changes can be most successfully measured, as it was a lengthy pre-agricultural period of nomadic hunter-gatherers, spanning around 99.5% of our history. Supported by unique and original images including real and replica artefacts, each term has a carefully-researched definition added, based on our specialist knowledge of this period and our experience of teaching about it. Pairs of terms are presented in A4 landscape format ready for printing, and laminating if required. This resource is guaranteed FREE of second-hand clip art cartoons featuring stereotypical images of club waving cavemen in fur nappies, and aims to knock the somewhat unhelpful Flintstones image squarely on the head. Can be used for display, reference, or matching exercises, by children in the classroom or for in-school staff INSET. Available for download in .pdf format. For non-commercial educational use and display only.

EYFS Assessment and Moderation Guide

EYFS Assessment and Moderation Guide

This Assessment Guide was developed as a result of inconsistent assessment judgements and ineffective assessments. It has been in place 1 year at my current school and has drastically improved the consistency and accuracy of assessment across our EYFS Department. The guide includes: Objectives for each curriculum area of the EYFS Curriculum. Examples of how children may demonstrate objectives. Guidance of what constitutes children emerging, developing or meeting expectation within an age-band. Notes: The guide begins at 16-26 Months to ELG. Some objectives have been added that our department felt should be included in the rounded assessment of a child. These are written in red so you can choose to disregard them if you wish to. This guide is not editable. Once purchased, if you would like an editable version, please let me know.

CPD Workshop Activity: Team Review

CPD Workshop Activity: Team Review

Team Review Workshop is an activity ready-made for any team meeting. You can run in virtually any situation. It helps you build a shared understanding within a team about what’s working well, areas in need of improvement and areas of opportunity. It’s a great way to get a team ready to do some positive action planning. There’s very little facilitation involved as it’s easy for people to grasp what they have to do and why they’re doing it. It’s transparent, democratic and a great stimulator of conversation within the group. Dotmocracy, the method used for prioritization of the resulting themes, is a popular technique for voting within groups using dot stickers. It’s also known as “dot-voting”, “multi-voting” or “voting with dots”.

Stop Asking and Start Telling: How To Get Kids To Do What They Are Told To Do With a Good Attitude

Stop Asking and Start Telling: How To Get Kids To Do What They Are Told To Do With a Good Attitude

STOP asking and Start Telling. If you want students to comply you have to stop giving choices and tell students exactly what you want them to do. Choices are something we all want and should be offered at times, but when there is a specific behavior you that you want your students to exhibit allowing choice only promotes confusion on the part of the students and frustration for the teacher. Compliance before choice is something that all students should understand. Students can’t say and do what they want when they want to do it. This 13 page guide provides instructions on how to do it with illustrations from the authors life and provides the language that will empower the teacher and create a positive school climate.

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Still Looking For A Teaching Job? Follow This Checklist

Teaching is the dream profession of many young graduates. It gives them a chance to be heard and share their knowledge with others. It’s a great profession for those who have leadership skills and want to be social. If you have applied to a number of teaching positions and still haven’t become successful, here’s a checklist for you: Consider moving Instead of limiting your job search to your neighboring schools and colleges, send the applications to big schools even if they are far away. If you get selected, you can always move to another city. After all, a job at a premiere college or school will be a great move for your career. Get your paperwork ready Make sure you have your resume, cover letter, and other documents ready. Proofread your resume several times to make sure it does not have any mistakes. Be available on social networks Your presence on social media networks like LinkedIn can help you build connections. If you are connected to administrators from colleges and schools, there are chances that they will prefer you over others when it’s time to hire. Attend job fairs Attend the job fairs held at your alma mater along with those at the neighboring colleges and universities. You have better chances of being selected at your alma mater than the others. Prepare for the interview There are some questions that are asked frequently. For example, “what can you bring to this school” and “how do you plan to influence the students”. Come up with witty and professional answers for these questions. Share vignettes Be open during the interview and share some positive vignettes about your previous experiences. These could include student achievements, classroom management, and unique teaching methodologies that you follow. Follow-up Sometimes the college or school might take extra time in hiring. If you follow up using emails, there are higher chances of you being hired. When you email them, state again that you would love to work with them. Stay positive It’s a tough economy but teaching positions keep opening every now and then in various schools and colleges. Don’t give up hope and you’ll soon bag a great teaching job. That’s it for now Busy Educator. Until next time, Talk to each other, support each other, take care of each other.’ Marjan
