A series of 17 Precision Teaching resources based on Year 3 grammar objectives, with a few Year 2 objectives to recap. Every day, we spend 5/10 minutes looking at the new rule, then do a mini test each day - the same objective and same test for the whole week. The children try to improve either their score or their time every day. Sometimes, we then do another mini-test the following week to see if they have retained the information. The resources include a mixture of powerpoints or SMART notebooks to introduce the objective, along with test papers. We have seen a marked improvement in the children applying the grammar into their independent writing.

Looking for a Greek mythology unit for an older audience?

Whole Class Feedback Template

Whole Class Feedback Template

This template allows for quick and insightful feedback to be given to students in line with the Ofsted feedback policy, Whole class feedback allows teachers to give general or specific feedback depending on how the template is used, pick up general misconeptions or grammatical errors buy highlighting multiple students, or give priase to individual students for their succeses. “Ofsted does not expect to see a particular frequency or quantity of work in pupils’ books or folders. Ofsted recognises that the amount of work in books and folders will depend on the subject being studied and the age and ability of the pupils. Ofsted recognises that marking and feedback to pupils, both written and oral, are important aspects of assessment. However, Ofsted does not expect to see any specific frequency, type or volume of marking and feedback; these are for the school to decide through its assessment policy. Marking and feedback should be consistent with that policy, which may cater for different subjects and different age groups of pupils in different ways, in order to be effective and efficient in promoting learning. While inspectors will consider how written and oral feedback is used to promote learning, Ofsted does not expect to see any written record of oral feedback provided to pupils by teachers. If it is necessary for inspectors to identify marking as an area for improvement for a school, they will pay careful attention to the way recommendations are written to ensure that these do not drive unnecessary workload for teachers.”

Rembrandt quotes: Dutch famous painter of 17th century + quotes about him - for students & pupils

Rembrandt quotes: Dutch famous painter of 17th century + quotes about him - for students & pupils

Rembrandt, quotes of the Dutch painter + quotes about him, by contemporaries - art-resource for students, pupils and art teachers . We don’t have many artist-quotes of Rembrandt himself: c 12 quotes - which you find here in the PDF (transl. Anne Porcelijn). Happily we do have a lot of quotes about Rembrandt as painter and teacher in art by his contemporaries - his former pupils, colleague-painters, citizens of Amsterdam, family, etc. You will find them here in his PDF too! Unlike most Dutch masters of the 17th century, Rembrandt’s works depict a wide range of style and subject matter. From portraits and self-portraits to landscapes, genre scenes, allegorical and historical scenes, biblical and mythological themes - in his paintings, drawings and etchings. The characteristic light and dark of Rembrandt became most important in his late art. . Some selected artist-quotes of Rembrandt - as short introduction of his extended quotes in the PDF: ’My [dear] Sir: Let me first offer my kind regards… …[the picture] will show to [the] best advantage in His Excellency’s gallery, since there it will be [showed] in bright light.’ - quote of Rembrandt, in his letter to Constantijn Huygens, Febr. 1636 ’in these two paintings [his ‘Entombment of Christ’ and the arising Christ] the greatest and most natural movement has been expressed [and rendered], which is also the main reason why they have taken so long to execute.’. - Rembrandt’s quote, in his letter to Constantijn Huygens, Febr. 1636 ’Try to put well in practice what you already know; and in so doing, you will in good time, discover the hidden things which you now inquire about. Practice what you know, and it will help to make clear what now you do not know’ - quote of Rembrandt, recorded by his former pupil Van Hoogstraten in 1671 . links for selected art-resources on Rembrandt: biographical notes on the life of Rembrandt, Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rembrandt artist-quotes of ànd about Rembrandt, on Wikiquote: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Rembrandt images of the painting art of Rembrandt, website Rijksmuseum: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/nl/rijksstudio/kunstenaars/rembrandt-van-rijn . editor: Fons Heijnsbroek / Matrozenhof (FotoDutch on Wikiquote):<br>[http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/User:FotoDutch]

Dramatic Comedy Genre: An Introduction

Dramatic Comedy Genre: An Introduction

A fully-adaptable PowerPoint which offers an introduction to the study of dramatic comedy as a genre (most likely useful with the study of Shakespeare). The lesson offers visual and practical tasks for pupils to work through in order to explore and begin to understand the concept of comedy as a genre. The activities should take one lesson, but may take two. There is also an opportunity for pupils to apply their learning to an extract from Shakespeare’s ‘Much ado About Nothing’ at the end. This PowerPoint will be most useful with higher-level GCSE students aiming for grades 7,8 and 9 in their study of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado about Nothing’, enabling them to explore method and genre as they read, which will help in their reaching higher levels in the examination. Could be adapted for aspiring grade 6 students. The PowerPoint might also be used as a starting point for A Level English Literature students although further reading and research will be necessary. It will certainly aid less able A Level students who benefit from visual and practical tasks, and discussion (I have used a version of this PowerPoint as a starting point with an AS group for coursework under an old spec).
