Back to School Maths / Literacy Activities BUNDLE (Year 1 / P2)

Back to School Maths / Literacy Activities BUNDLE (Year 1 / P2)

Activities for the first week back at school after the summer with a new Year 1 class (P2 and other equivalents). These resources will suit some Key Stage 1 (KS1) Year 1 classes / groups in the first few days and weeks back, while others might benefit from them at another time. ADDITION TO 20 GAMES 2 Self-Check Board Games for pupils to get lots of consolidation. Ideal for keeping groups meaningfully busy if you are teaching others. For differentiation, the two boards are at different levels, with one containing more challenging calculations such as those involving missing numbers. SELF-CHECK ADD AND SUBTRACT TO 20 TRAILS AND BINGO 36 Trails for pupils to complete with a whiteboard pen once laminated. They can also be used as unlaminated worksheets if required. Pupils keep a running total as they work their way around the calculations in a spiral, until they reach the answer in the centre and are able to see if they have gone wrong. There is also a bingo game for adding and subtracting to 20. JUMBLED SENTENCES A full class set of 30 different reusable sentence building boards. Emergent writers love lifting the words off to unscramble them to find the hidden simple sentence. With an engaging picture clue and title on each board, this word sequencing resource suits a range of learning styles. Pupils rearrange their words into the correct order on the board before writing the sentence out themselves on the lines provided, using a dry-wipe pen. They could then copy the sentence into their jotter if required. Regular practice of making sentences in this way should help pupils begin to form sentences independently. Each mixed-up sentence contains a word beginning with a capital letter to help children identify the first word and to reinforce this important punctuation rule, and a full stop to pick up and place at the end of their sentence. While constructing these sentences, children also learn about word order, parts of speech and about the fact that a sentence must make sense on its own. These resources are available in some other linked bundles, which you can explore buy clicking on these links: Jumbled Sentences Bundle Add and Subtract Activities Bundle Year 1 / Year 2 / Year 3 Addition and Subtraction to 20 Games Bundle For time-saving, engaging resources to help you plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, visit FullShelf Resources

Dyslexia assessment wheel

Dyslexia assessment wheel

I've developed this resource to help explain my assessment to parents and other teachers. Using a phonological deficit definition of dyslexia (for example Frederikson and Frith, 1998; Hedman, 2012), the core feature I look for is a weakness in phonological processing skills (the central circle). The second circle contains "symptoms" which are common, although not all people with dyslexia will display all these characteristics. The third circle shows more characteristics, although these again vary from individual to individual. The words around the outside describe co-morbid conditions, which do not define dyslexia, but are often associated with it. I've included Frith's (1999) framework for describing SEN as a further tool to help explain where these things can be observed and the part that environment can have in interacting with a pattern of strengths and weaknesses.

Characteristics of a dyslexic.This resource informs teaching and support staff of some indicators of dyslexia. If we plan to adapt to such behaviours and are prepared then we become better inclusive practitioners. This can be distributed whole school or in departments. *Note - these are only indicators and that if there are any concerns with a pupils abilities ensure they are tested by a qualified professional.
