Phase 6 Letters and Sounds weekly/daily planning

I have attempted to put together a 15 week plan for the phase 6 element of letters and sounds. Each week has 5 daily lessons. Im aware that this was replaced by support for spelling but I think it covers that too. The first couple of days were some example planning I found on the internet on the SGFL website, any mistakes after that are completely mine! Hope this helps and I would welcome your feedback :) Kate
Primary supply packQuick View

Primary supply pack

This is what I take into school on supply in case there isn't any work left. Several people have asked what MS means - it means I take these on a memory stick ready to use and AOP is Areas of Provision in an Early Years setting. I still leave this here although I now haven't taught for several years, so it is not updated to reflect curriculum changes, but I hope it helps.

KS3 and KS4 Grade descriptors 1-9 for GCSE French and GermanQuick View

KS3 and KS4 Grade descriptors 1-9 for GCSE French and German

The exam boards have not published grade descriptors for the new specs, but like a lot of schools we are now being asked to grade our pupils in both KS3 and KS4 using grades 1-9 using GCSE criteria. I have adapted the Pearson Progression scale to use GCSE gradings 1-9, working on the assumption that step 3 on the scale is roughly equivalent to a grade 1 at GCSE with step 11 being a grade 9. The grade descriptions are the same for both languages, but there are different files because of the grammatical structures listed below each grading. This could also be adapted for Spanish.

Christmas TransformationsQuick View

Christmas Transformations

Here is another set of transformation pictures that will create a lovely Christmas scene. There is a reindeer and Christmas tree which only require multiple translations to create, the other snow man and reindeer involve a mixture of rotations, reflections and translations. All the worksheets are as pictures to help preserve the positions of each piece that needs to be transformed. These have been double checked for mistakes but if any are found do let me know! Hope these prove to be useful and an enjoyable task to end the long autumn term on!
History DisplaysQuick View

History Displays

Range of displays for a HIstory classroom. Kids really like the PM display. The timeline display was adapted from another TES post, so credit goes to them, really good idea. I've added and changed some events from the original. Again kids love it. NOTE: that some displays are in two-three parts. You can use some as resources rather than displays, especially the WW1 and WW2 stories. Hope they help!
Quadratic Formula Differentiated WorksheetsQuick View

Quadratic Formula Differentiated Worksheets

A resource that has 3 levels of worksheets for solving quadratics using the formula. From the Red worksheet which includes quadratics in a standard order to Amber which starts to mix up the order and then to Green which incudes one that has no real solutions. Each worksheet has questions and answers and pupils match them up which helps them check their answers. There are also some hint cards for each level of worksheet to help students identify the coefficients a, b and c. After that there are 2 sections for extension which take the skill into slightly different areas. The first one is suitable for pupils who have completed the red/amber sheets whereas the 2nd extension requires pupils to have completed the green worksheet. The powerpoint has a support grid which I usually print out in colour and put into a plastic pocket so pupils can use it like a whiteboard. It is based on the lesson powerpoint by alutwyche as I really liked the way he colour coordinated the coefficients to help pupils use the formula correctly. I also used his powerpoint as the input for the lesson.
