Classification Chart/Tree

Classification Chart/Tree

I used this as a warmer - the children had to name my 6 nieces and nephews by using their pictures and the classification chart/decision tree. Once they understood how it worked I had them make their own classification chart based on identifying 6 chosen members of their class.

ICT log on cards

ICT log on cards

I made these cards to help my year 1 children to log on each time. Saved so much time and made the children more independent. I laminated them blank then wrote on the details with a permanent pen. At the end of the year I either passed them on to the next year group - if needed, or cleaned them with nail varnish remover and used again.
