This resource is a complete pack with 40+ book suggestions per year group (Reception - year 6). Including, instructions on how to edit if required to. @Miss_C_EHU on Twitter
An incredible whole school overview of writing genres based on the new national curriculum. The first document sets out what is covered across the school in a detailed overview. The units are colour coded so cross over between year groups and text types is clear. There is also a map of writing genres for each year group covering fiction, non-fiction and poetry including how long to teach and writing out comes. The genres are set out in order to cover progression and difficulty with text type. The final document gives an overview of non-fiction units across the school, year group and text type.

This is my first try at creating a whole-school SEN provision map template. Feedback and ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
I presented this assembly to my house and it lasted about 15 minutes once everyone had come in and sat down. It starts with a video link to base jumpers which worked really well at keeping all the students quiet as they walked in. It also sets up nicely for learning to fail as these guys clearly can't fail, but in school failure is all part of learning and so students should embrace failure. The assembly then goes through the endeavors of famous people who have dealt with failure numerous times and moved on from these set backs and learnt from them successfully. It finishes by suggesting a "a fail Friday" where across the school students and teachers alike are encouraged to take risks in lessons and step outside if their comfort zones. Save yourself some time planning and grab yourself a bargain.
I created and developed customised Excel macro enabled workbooks to produce a whole school timetable from scratch. Although I have used commercial packages over the years, I have found that I have a better overview and greater flexibility with these files. Timetable file makes use of Excel's in built features to help determine optimum solution for option blocks and class scheduling with invalid combinations highlighted. Once the setup process is completed timetables can be viewed for an individual teacher, class or room. The price reflects the many hours of work I have spent creating and developing the files and I am happy to assist users who have any questions. There is also a free version of this resource (containing setup worksheets only): Whole School Timetable Demo Follow me on Twitter and Pinterest @hastag73.
