End of Term Quiz #2

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest one An interactive, End of Term Quiz. This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round. It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.

The 5 Minute Lesson Plan by @TeacherToolkit

*Updated January 2018* - with 1-hour webinar tutorial to guide new users. Designed to reduce planning time and focus on key learning phases within a lesson. (Will still require thinking!) Lesson planning is a habit of thought, not a form filling exercise. Remember, watchdogs no longer require a lesson plan for lessons, but evidence of ‘a planned lesson!’ So, why use the 5 Minute Lesson Plan? Useful for coaching and mentoring NQTs; or with established colleagues for paired observations; designed to help teachers consider the cognitive processes required in lesson planning. “Stickability” = What will stick in students minds as they leave your lesson? What key point do you want them to remember? Now translated into 14 languages and available for free on Teacher Toolkit website.

Learning Walk/ Teacher Development ChecklistsQuick View

Learning Walk/ Teacher Development Checklists

These comprehensive checklists have been created to aid school leaders when performing learning walks with a particular focus e.g. questioning, differentiation, etc. Clearly structured and organised, they present a central idea surrounded by a breakdown of a number of its key components. For the user, this layout provides a simple reference list of each of the desirable skills, categorised appropriately. The checklists also provide an alternative to regular feedback methods, which often focus too heavily on the standard or 'judgement', as opposed to being a developmental tool. Alternatively, these are really handy for teachers looking to develop their practice in the key teaching areas listed below. Included in the pack are checklists for: -Questioning -Differentiation -Utilising Resources (including support staff) -Engagement -Building Literacy Skills -Planning and Expectations -Building Learning Power -A blank template for you to design your own based upon your own focus Note: The checklists offer a range of desirable strategies that teachers should look to implement over time - it would be damaging to expect teachers to utilise each of these strategies in every lesson! Many Thanks

General Comments for Reports - KS1

30 paragraphs of general comments for reports. These were for a Y2 class but would suit any Primary class really as they are generic statements including attitude, ability to work with others, friends, behaviour, listening skills, contributions to class etc... Hopefully can save someone some time thinking of different ways to phrase things.

Example evidence for teaching standards & bulletsQuick View

Example evidence for teaching standards & bullets

Example evidence for TS standards, including highly detailed examples of acceptable evidence for each 'bullet point&' (or sub TS-element) for the 2012 Teacher Standards... I found it difficult to ascertain what &';evidence' counts for each TS & TS-sub-standard, so I have collated acceptable lists from my University training, NQT local authority guidance and mentor guidance into this handy document. Useful for NQT&'s, mentors, student teachers and others. *** Added a condensed, cleaner version in Nov 2014 *** Mike.
