Traditional Tales. Story hands to use in conjunction with Pie Corbett work. Useful for helping children to construct a story using the five part breakdown of traditional tales; Opening, buildup, problem, resolution and ending. Space for writing or picture boxes.
I designed this scheme of art planning around the artist Andy Goldsworthy. The worksheet can be completed over the course of the half term and the 'write-up' document is just a prompt sheet to help the children to do this.
Habitats of animals worksheets. Feel free to adapt for your own purposes.
We created this test to assess our children halfway through the year or for key children, especially those undergoing Reading Recovery. Words can be edited and action taken after analysis of results.
I printed these off and laminated them for my Maths Working Wall. The idea is to give the children clues to find the correct shape. I have a selection of shapes too for them to look at. Every time a child identifies the shape correctly they get a reward and I change the number of sides, etc. I use a whiteboard pen and rub off the old numbers each time, or a baby wipe if no-one has got it for a few days and it's dried on!
I printed these off, laminated them and attached the sticky velcro to the front of the shapes and the back of the names. Each time I take off the names and put them in a pile for the next child to put in the right place. Has been a useful assessment tool and activity for the Maths Working Wall.
Bookmarks I give to my children weekly in order to monitor their reading. I also encourage them to read with anyone in their homes, not just parents or carers.
Used in African animal topic work. Feel free to adapt as necessary.
I created these SPaG openers sheets for use with a story in class but you can edit them for your own purposes. Hopefully they are straightforward. There's one where the children match the appropriate opener to the sentences and another where they match some and create their own for others. Hopefully they'll save someone some time.
We used this in conjunction with locating different types of food from all over the world. However please feel free to adapt and use as necessary.
I printed and laminated of these for each child at the beginning of the year. Each week I give them a number of spellings, we attempt them in class and then explore the spellings in different scenarios before they are tested. Sending the grids home, with an explanation to parents, has enabled my children to practise at home too and so improve.
I created this to help the children create a life cycle themed piece of work but it could be used for other topics. Six boxes for drawings and accompanying space for writing. Can be adapted for purpose but hopefully could save you time by having the initial layout there.
A three stage warning chart incorporating our school policy of one warning, then a further warning with a half playtime detention and a final warning with a full playtime detention, before out of class action is taken. This is a large visual chart which can be laminated and written on with a whiteboard pen. I use it with one of my children who has impaired cognitive function in a mainstream class and to have her own visual is very useful in order to manage her behaviour.
These worksheets are created in the style of the wonderful Pie Corbett in order to help children to lay out instructions correctly. They are differentiated and based on Goldilocks but please feel free to alter for your own purpose. Hope it saves you some time.
I use this with a child in my class who has SEN in order to help her repeated achieve a target. This has included sitting in her space on the carpet, writing her name, etc. Each time she completes the target I give her a sticker in the ladybird spot and then when she has completed all six she can colour it in and gets a small reward.
I work in a school with a very high percentage of Muslim students. In order to celebrate Christmas without alienating anyone we chose these Christmas songs to perform. Might save someone some time instead of having to trawl around to find suitable songs for their concert if you are in a similar school environment. All the backing tracks were available on SingUp! I believe.
We made a compass as part of our Explorers topic English work. You will need to do this on a sunny day and not plan it for the depths of Winter by the way!
I use the Triangle of Learning at the beginning of every topic to see what the children are interested in and what they need to learn. You can use it as a whole class one or as an individual child copy.
I was placed in 'Hawks' class last year and as part of our Science topics we investigated our class animal. These were the resources I created in order to support the day. I used the information sheets to get the children to create their own posters. Then they coloured maps appropriately to show where the different types of Hawk were found. Finally they went on a fact hunt where all the cards were hidden in plastic Easter eggs around the school grounds. They shared the facts when they found them. It was great for my active learners. We also created animations of Hawk puppets but I didn't have a resource for that so it's just an idea if you get challenged to do a similar thing.
