Queen’s Platinum Jubilee lesson for KS2 / KS3 (Year 7) In this lesson, the students will explore the reasons why we are celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. We will take a detailed look at the key milestones of Queen Elizabeth’s historic reign and reflect on what she means to the British people. The students will order the key events in Elizabeth’s remarkable life, and in doing so create a decorative and informative Jubilee bunting garland. In our plenary task, the students will use their knowledge to design a commemorative Jubilee coin. The lesson includes a starter activity, a video clip with accompanying questions, a chronological bunting activity with associated reflection task, and finally a ‘design a commemorative coin’ plenary task. The lesson is well-differentiated with three-level challenges for each task, contains a variety of activities, a detailed and colourful PowerPoint, clips with differentiated questions, clear measurable LOs and other activities. It is fully editable, engaging and very easy to follow. Who are EC Resources?

A successful cover letter and supporting statement/application linked to the points on a Deputy Headteacher job specification and person specification Happy to help further if needed to support your application
A comprehensive covering letter and personal statement which I wrote during my recent job search. Although it obviously needed to be adapted to suit the needs of each school that I was applying for, I found that having a ‘base’ letter was extremely useful. I was shortlisted for each job I sent this application to (and gained a headship) There was nothing on line at the time that I could use to guide/scaffold me, so I hope that someone finds this useful!
32 lessons - ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ by Onjali Rauf - Year 4/5/6 - English planning A whole term’s English planning linked to the book ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ (Winner of the Blue Peter Best Story Award 2019) by Onjali Rauf. Since its release, this book has been a classroom favourite, covering a topic that is never far from the news. Onjali Rauf writes about the topic of migration and refugees fantastically. I’ve taught this scheme twice now to my class, and both times they’ve all cheered at the end (always a good sign that they’ve enjoyed a book!) There are 32 lessons in total, all with accompanying SMART Notebook screens, task sheets and header sheets. To aid teaching each lesson, there are a total of 193 SMART Notebook screens (in one file) and each lesson is clearly marked along with which lesson each chapter should be read to aid and link to the learning. (Update - In response to many requests, I have converted the SMART Notebook screens to Powerpoint, so there is also a 193 page Powerpoint presentation included for the teaching sequence for those unable to use SMART Notebook.) This teaching sequence and planning will require the children to complete the following tasks over the 32 lessons: writing a recount writing a persuasive letter answering SATs style comprehension questions writing a narrative descriptive writing drama session writing an information text writing a newspaper report I have also included some examples of work for some lessons. This topic will also educate and inform the children of a very current real problem that others in the world face - the plight of the refugee. Using this book will expand their understanding of the world and help them to empathise and appreciate what some of the other children in school may have gone through. Even if you don’t need this scheme of work, I would highly recommend the book to share with the class.

After much searching, I couldn’t find any Arithmetic practice tests that fit onto one page (to save on photocopying!), so I decided to make some. Each test fits on to one page and comes with the answers. They are all based on KS2 SATs Arithmetic Test questions. The tests download in both PDF and editable Word formats. There is also a front cover, which I use when putting all the tests into a booklet, so my class can keep track of their scores improving. I hope you find them useful and it saves the trees/you some photocopying time!
I have put together a lesson drop in form that focuses on the areas of a deep dive. This allows you to: Check whether your curriculum intention is known and followed within your department Make a judgement of how effective your curriculum implementation is within your team Assess whether the intended impact is taking place in lessons Identify positives from lessons Address areas for improvement This drop in form supports you as leaders (and teachers!) in conducting drop-ins to ensure your teams are deep dive ready. You can use this alongside my other deep dive resources to support you. :)
We all know that we need to ensure that we are supporting our target groups and it can be difficult to know what is happing in our classrooms to make sure this happens. Deep Dives look at how our SEN and PP students are supported in their learning and it is important for leaders at all levels to know how this is happening and are able to monitor progress. So, I have put together a drop-in form to support all leaders with this to ready themselves for a deep dive. This supports you by: Knowing how many SEN & PP students are in the class Checks that the teacher knows who they are Gives you the knowledge of how these students are supported Gives an insight into added value in the classroom Opportunities for feedback and the observation of best practise I hope this helps you and your teams succeed and helps you take forward the learning of your target groups.

This is an interactive scale to help children identify how they are feeling. It is particularly useful for children for whom emotional regulation is difficult. It includes emojis for pre-readers and is colour-coded for ease of use. It also includes some suggested actions to help moderate moods. The font is also dyslexic friendly. If you choose to download this resource I would be incredibly grateful if you could provide a rating or if you have time a short review. Thank you and best wishes supporting your children to be their best selves. DH
