This is all the National Curriculum Technology levels ( P4- Level 6) on a chart that covers the academic year. This has been taken from various sources and is not original. It can be laminated and displayed or re-printed for each student to provide an ongoing record. I found that the general Technology descriptors were hard to adapt for food technology and this overcomes that . It should be particularly helpful for non specialist teachers.
Resource aimed at older pupils- no childish images. Deliberately blank so students can add in own words to make games. If put onto computer student can change images to make own boards. I use this with MLD students for ASDAN type activities. Could be photocopied onto A3 size if students need larger space for writing in.
Scheme of work for this book. Included extension ideas. I have used resources from the TES as well as my own ideas to make this. I have used it Year 7,8,9 MLD children, but could be used with younger years or lower ability mainstream. I have added all the worksheets that I used to help children to follow the scheme. They may be too simple for mainstream but might help with differentiation.
This was the work I did before I started working with students on a CV. This is 2 A4 sides and was used for students lacking in motivation to think what they needed to think about with a view to eventually getting a job. It is self explanatory. The job forms that came from careers was too complicated and didn't always relate to the students. This form helps them to focus on the positive and negative and produced a lot of discussion whilst they were filling it in. You can add your own school logo.
This is a very simple powerpoint. The idea is for slide 2 to give out chocolate unfairly. It is very simple, so children could make up another slide and add it if this were to be developed in other lessons for example. By the way there are 3000 fairtrade products now.(Question asked in slide)
This is a work pack full of ideas for exploring this book. Some of the ideas are based on a Powerpoint presentation done by another teacher on TES. I am using his PP to support this pack! I teach children with MLD, so teachers may want to add more instructions or goals onto each page. I would use some of it in lessons and some as homework. There are additional ideas and worksheets for teachers on the Walliams website. The scheme of work is to help people to see how the workpack could be used. It was primarily devised for MLD but gives a basis.
This can be used on its own or with the Powerpoint Presentation made by someone else on this site. It is a simple word filling document for the main points
This workpack is designed primarily for older children with moderate learning difficulties. It could be adapted for younger children. Children can talk about some sections as well as draw their answers.
Powerpoint with the sounds in the correct order for this programme. Use for revision. You can go to Slide Design and change the way the letters appear, this gives you a different resource. Always click on apply to all slides so that you can do all the letters. You can also print it as a handout
This is a self explanatory worksheet for children to explore the theme of friendship. This is needed for some Asdan courses. The document could be done on an interactive white board for the whole class to work on, or as individual sheets. The first sheet is for discussion and development and the second sheet would be the evidence sheet.
Worksheet that can be used as a form for filling in by student. Less able students can use pictures on sheet two. More able can download their own images from Google for example. Useful for Asdan type evidence sheets.
Really useful fill in for stand in lesson, or as homework. The Lords prayer with simplified language, can be coloured in. Second sheet of pictures for less able pupils who cannot add own illustrations round the sheet. Unashamedly colouring, cutting and sticking. Nothing fancy, just might get you out of a hole!!
This is a way of visually summarising Twelfth Night. The children use the negative and positive statements and put them next to ladders or snakes , as appropriate. More able students can write it in their own words, ( by using the sheet as a guide) and less able can cut out the key words and stick them in. Extremely able children can grade the more serious and less serious and put next to correct length snake/ ladder etc. At the end the children can play the game. I make them work in pairs, but it can also be used individually. By the end of the game the whole story is summarised. .
Why too much alcohol can be damaging. A worksheet that either the student can upload their own pictures to, or use second sheet that has a set of illustrations ready to use. Used for Asdan type work, can be used for PHSE etc.
I had had to teach a group of children(MLD) age 11-14 Twelfth Night. It seemed impossibly hard. I made lots of creative sheets to help them and it became really successful . I am only sharing this as it might give ideas or help someone teach Shakespeare to MLD or much younger children. By the end of it we all loved the play. I have also included a model of the globe this was downloaded from the internet. I copied this onto A3.
A very simple outline for children to write in paragraphs. This worked really well for Key Stage 3 children in an MLD school, but could be used for younger children. There is a checklist at the end which enables the child to self correct. It was very useful as a piece of homework. Not rocket science but I found it simple and effective.
This was the Powerpoint that was made after a visit to a local Church. We approached it as looking for evidence of what the people who went there believed. The children took photographs of what they thought was important, then we found out what the people believed. This was done by children aged 13 with moderate learning difficulties. It is meant as a discussion tool, or to inspire children to make their own detective Powerpoint from a visit. You could visit a different type of Church and compare them.
This is a simple poster making excercise for children who are unable to do the writing. They cut out the pictures on the second sheet, stick them close to the right words on the first sheets and draw appropriate arrows. This can be done as a way of summarising what has already been taught , or as evidence for Asdan type work. There can be discussion about which picture is the best one for each sentence. More able children could decide to add their own drawings if they preferred.
This is a termly plan for instructional writing. It has been done with MLD children in year 7,8,9 but could be adapted to younger children. It is quite simple, but worked well to teach the basics.
This is a two part worksheet. You can photocopy multiple copies of page one The student chooses a problem, then chooses how they could decide to respond. I did this as part of an R.E. unit on Justice. Students who are brighter could use the first page and write in complete sentences. The second would suit children who struggle with writing. It opens up the idea that forgiveness and justice are complex issues and there are lots of factors that affect our response.
This is a very simple chart for teachers to fill in the behaviour of the child for each lesson. Where it differs from the usual one is that there are smiley faces etc for the child to evaluate their own behaviour. This proved to be a lot more useful than making children write comments. I teach in a school for MLD children and it did work much better for some children, which is why I am sharing it. Obviously you can alter it to fit your day. It only covers three days which was a useful length for our children. It made a useful discussion document, and progress could been seen more clearly.
