Feeling Charts

Feeling Charts

These feeling charts have been created to be an interactive, frequently-used, classroom resource. The more students utilize the charts, the more the classroom as a whole and the student as an individual, will benefit. Students better understand their own emotions when they learn to identify what they are feeling; and proceed to learn how to cope with those emotions. This, in return, allows for a positive classroom environment with less confusion and more understanding between students and teachers. -There are 24 feelings included: aggressive, angry, annoyed, bored, calm, cold, confident, confused, disappointed, embarrassed, excited, friendly, frustrated, funny, grumpy, happy, hot, hungry, hurt, lazy, motivated, nervous, overwhelmed, proud, quiet, sad, scared, shy, sick, silly, surprised, tired -One large feelings chart. Three miniature feelings charts. -All emoji faces are labeled with their emotion.

Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

10 PIECE DOWNLOAD ✔️ Improve mastery skills, develop self-esteem and encourage positive thinking. ✔️ Create engaging and thought-provoking discussions. ✔️ Provide opportunities for all learners to develop reasoning skills and build self-esteem. ✔️ Perfect for small group interventions and whole class lessons. Life By Shape resources can help improve mastery skills in two ways: showing how images can be used to represent problems or ideas giving an opportunity for children to discuss and reason Each Life By Shape resource included in this package shows words of inspiration and motivation represented by an image of shape. Using images to represent Each image has been designed to represent (or show) a motivational message. The key here is for children to try and imagine that each shape within an image represents an individual person. Once children understand this concept, the discussions really start flowing. Discussing & Reasoning Here are some possible questions that children could be asked to generate some discussions. How does the image relate to the words? Why do you think the bottom left square is different? And what could this represent? Why is the bottom left square a different colour to the rest? Why are all of the other shapes in a perfect pattern? If you were one of these squares, which one would you be? It’s important to remember that there does not have to be a right answer. The point of this is to give children an opportunity to express their thoughts through discussions and reasoning by ‘agreeing’ or ‘disagreeing’ with other children. How can Life By Shape resources help to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking? Each Life By Shape resource has a message of inspiration or motivation for children. Combined with discussions, all types of learners can access and understand important messages to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking.

New IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

New IEP template/Pupil Learning Passport

The file included is an updated/new IEP template which is renamed ‘Pupil Learning Passport’. It is used successfully in conjunction with face-to-face parental meetings once per term. We allocated 20-25 minutes each for the Autumn term parental meetings and 10-15 minutes each for the Spring and Summer term meetings, although longer may be needed depending on the nature of the outcomes, progress made as well as the individual circumstances surrounding the pupil . Pupil Learning Passports (PLPs) can be used for SEND, LAC and disadvantaged pupils. What does it do? Outlines personal details and SEND category/categories Links to SEND ranges Outlines the pupil’s strengths, achievements and interests ( pupil discussions are held once a year prior to the first parental meeting). Outlines external agencies involved Outlines background information (status, medical and external agencies) Incorporates pupil voice - ‘barriers to learning’ and ‘I learn best when’ States outcomes and learning targets (Autumn, Spring and Summer) Outlines provision (intervention, resources, strategies and what I can do at home to help Tracks attainment and progress data Reviews outcomes Incorporates parent views Includes details of transition Why is it more effective? One document that is updated each term for one year and the follows the pupil into future year groups One document that tracks pupil progress for their whole school career from Reception to Y6, or whenever they join your school In-line with the SEND Code of Practice 2015, incorporating parent and pupil voice and views Sections are written in conjunction with the pupil It combines IEPs and Pupil Passports removing the need for two separate documents Links directly to SEND Provision Map Saves teachers time having ‘tick box’ options in various sections All relevant information needed for referrals is in one place All relevant information in one place to ensure all staff involved with the child is aware of provision, needs, resources and strategies Acts as a transition document (class to class/teacher to teacher, across Key stages and to new schools) Overall, it replaces a lot of singular documents and creates one meaningful and multi-purpose document for SEND pupils.

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

My Meeting is a visual pupil voice resource to increase participation and engagement in meetings

This 24-page booklet is intended to prepare children and young people for meetings that they are invited to attend. This could be a termly or annual review, looked after child review or any meeting where the pupil’s voice is really valued (as recommended in the SEN code of practice). It is intentionally simple to accommodate a range of needs and ages. By preparing pupils well beforehand, they will better understand the purpose of these meetings, be more fully engaged in them and have a lasting record of the decisions made there. It is also hoped that the owners of this book will be encouraged to personalise the booklet by adding their own photo next to the box on the front cover alongside a drawing that they have coloured in. Some images to colour in are included along with drawings of people (if a photo is not available). Additionally, there are some bubble letters to use should they want to put their initials on the front cover. If not, those pages do not need to be included in their booklet. It is intended that appropriate text and photos will be added to each page in whatever way is most meaningful to the young person. A visual timetable and a ground rules prompt is also included to laminate and display prominently at the start of and throughout the meeting. The typeface of the booklet has been deliberately sized and coloured to be accessible to those with visual impairments and difficulties processing text.
