With the Ofsted focus on curriculum and the retention and recall of information - this resource provides some creative ideas on how to embed this into lessons. Templates are attached for ease and distribution to staff and ideas are supported with transferable instructions to share across subject areas.
An interactive, differentiated and enjoyable way to teach and learn about Music Theory at the click of a button for Key Stage 3 students.
This resource is entirely clickable and encourages independent learning through the discovery of Music Theory, specifically aimed at Key Stage 3 Music students.
Topics such as Notes on the Staff, Musical Elements, Instruments of the Orchestra and Rhythm are incorporated here in a style that students will find engaging and enjoyable, with the main purpose of encouraging independence in the classroom.
Students can operate their own programme and work through the tasks and resources at their own pace, re-visiting sections for further understanding as well as taking on more complex tasks to push the higher ability.
There are listening tasks, recall tests and quizzes included in the programme as well as audio clips and performance opportunities. It is easy to navigate through with helpful icons throughout and there is a guide on how to operate the programme at the start.
For best results, arrange for the students to all have access to this document on a shared driver or server so they can open the PowerPoint and work through it individually or in pairs, at their own pace.
Further information on how to use this resource can be found on the You Tube link attached.

This is my own personal statement for the position of Assistant Headteacher for Teaching, Learning and Curriculum - a job which I got.
Being able to download someone else’s personal statement while writing mine, would have been a huge help. Therefore, I thought offering mine, would give practitioners an option to view one before they start writing their own and thus having new ideas and a clear structure.
Obviously, every personal statement should be tailored to the person specification but it is easy to use ideas from this personal statement and shuffle them around accordingly. I have removed specific names from the personal statement and instead typed, XXX.
This resource pack contains a full PowerPoint for teaching Theories of Learning. Included in this is tasks to allow students to apply their knowledge. Also included is a summary sheet for students to condense the key points onto one side of A4.
This is a collection of 3 resources. The first is a homework task that can be given to pupils after they have studied particles and changes of state. It gives a good creative writing task and literacy link. The particle statements can be used as a starter by holding up each one and asking pupils which of the three states of matter it refers to (remember that some have more than one answer). The last is a description and recording sheet for five simple experiments that can be used to prove basic understand about particles.
The following twenty-three (23) PowerPoint slides, are a product of a collective group effort, for a learning theories presentation project. They describe various behaviourist theories, by world renowned theorists, namely: Ivan P. Pavlov, B. F. Skinner, and J. B. Watson.
This information is for anyone - including PGCE student teachers, college students and teachers, as well as high school, or secondary students and teachers - who are perhaps seeking information, or helpful hints and tips, on a specific learning theory namely: BEHAVIOURISM - which is a current educational topic. Each approach is positively outlined, so that current day classroom practices, values, and beliefs could be evaluated and challenged.
You will notice that these conceptual frameworks, are simply but effectively, professionally, and efficiently designed, and created, by four members of our team, in order to meet the objectives of our task - that is, to highlight the similarities and differences of behaviourist theories - as opposed to - for example, constructivist, humanist, cognitivitist, connectivist, and Gestalt Psychology -to name a few. More importantly, these resources are designed to meet the diverse needs of learners; that is, both students of a higher level, or lower level learning, can find them beneficial.
Please note that this information is recycled. That is, a percentage of it has been "borrowed"; from Internet research. Therefore, my peers and I have agreed, it is only honourable, honest, and fair, that it should be thus freely forwarded. Please do use it as a reference, or for resources towards your next teaching and learning assignment or project.
My peers and I have enjoyed working together, and we can but hope that it would also help you, to build positive and collaborative relationships with your peers and colleagues. We believe that in some small way, our contribution could inspire, motivate, and raise aspirations of learners in a positive way.
Strategies for Teaching Different Learning Styles PowerPoint. Useful strategies and activities for different learning styles. Animated and colorful slides. There are several theories related to learning styles and multiple intelligences. Effective teachers consider their students' learning styles and use strategies adapted to their students' individual needs. Here are many different strategies to use for the different learning styles and multiple intelligences. For example, includes specific strategies and a list of activities for visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners.
These handy flashcards provide an overview of key learning theory and how they can be used within the classroom. Theories included-
Bioecological model of development
Discovery Learning Theory
Zone of Proximal Development
Maslow’s Hierachy of Needs
These are the perfect companion for trainees, NQT’s and ECT’s to ensure a variety of teaching techniques are deployed within the classroom.
Top Tip #1- These cards last longer when laminated and are put on an easy to grab keyring!
Top Tip #2- These cards could be used as a stimulus for criticality when writing assignments by discussing contrasting theory.
Please do review and rate below!
Various theories that explain how children learn have been formulated. Teacher and subject centred teaching methods were mostly used in ancient times. Today however, many educational research scholars have come up with more appropriate teaching methods. Researchers in Child Developmental are of the opinion that the aspects of growth and development are interrelated and thus a child’ physical development will affect his/her socio-emotional as well as cognitive development and hence his/her learning. Knowledge of theoretical principles in child development and instructional methods will help us understand the stages through which a child passes and what he/she is capable of learning or doing.
I write the schools teaching and learning newsletters every two weeks. These are NOT my own personal ideas I merely source them from various places (research articles, text books, twitter, educational blogs) to provide CPD to the staff at my school and share best practice. They include teaching and learning ideas, activities, current and topical pedagogy etc.
If this is something you are responsible for in your own school or you would like to improve your own knowledge with very short simple snippets of advice then why not download them and save yourself a bit research time.
In this download you will receive the first seven newsletters.
Rosenshine in a nutshell is a single sheet that was borne out of a need to reduce the whole thing to one sheet for an interview .
The Model of learning and teaching - borne out of more than two decades of Taekwon-Do teaching and coaching and even longer class room practice. I wanted to codify what I was doing in both worlds. It seems to chime closely with what’s happening now.
The Forgetting curve with repeated input goes back to my BSc Environmental Biology days. It shows why repeated stimulation of the neural pathways works. It also explains why mediocre boarding schools get food grades - they drum it in to the kids morning noon and night.
This resource pack is comprised of:
1.) Observation & Learning Walk Performance Grid
2.) Marking and Feedback Performance Grid
For use alongside lesson observations, learning walks, and book monitoring, these succinct performance grids enable observers to gauge, categorise, and feedback on teaching and learning sessions using OFSTED guidance for effective teaching. The documents provide descriptors of 'outstanding', 'good', 'requires improvement' and 'inadequate' practice within appropriately considered teaching and learning focus areas, for example: Questioning, Positive Feedback, Use of Additional Adults, etc. Schools who still grade individual teachers have noted that these are helpful aids in arriving at an overall judgement.
