Apostrophes! Why do so many of us get them wrong?<br />
In Year 2 children are expected to use contractions accurately, and in Year 4 they are expected to understand possessive apostrophes as well.<br />
This extended lesson on apostrophes is suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. It would also be an ideal revision tool for the Year 6 Grammar Test.<br />
First, children are given the chance to revisit prior learning through the fun warm up game 'The Memory Test'.<br />
Following that, they will learn about possessive apostrophes and common misconceptions during the presentation.<br />
When they are ready, the two player game 'Apostrophe Abduction' will provide them with plenty of challenge.<br />
Here is an assessment tool I have put together which is easy to follow for Primary PE. It is entitled going for Gold as pupils can relate to Gold, Silver and Bronze.<br />
It highlights the key elements to look for in primary PE and can be adapted to most topics in KS1 & KS2. Teachers fill out the blank boxes by simply putting in pupils initials to not cause endless sheets of paper. On completion an average score will be produced. It is really handy to use when communicating with parents and pupils giving rationales to feedback and doesn’t take up lots of time. It is designed in mind for teachers to carry out when observing PE, ideally picking 5-10 pupils per session for accurate data. It can be filled in throughout the lesson or as the children get changed at the end.<br />
I have found that pupils enjoy filling this out too. It is clearly set out and gives pupils an understanding of what is expected.<br />
I hope you find it useful; I have had lots of fantastic feedback!<br />

I have produced units of work to cover the whole of KS1 for religious education. There are 12 units in total, each designed to last a half term. They cover Christianity and Hinduism and come with most of the required resources (some are physical resources that we have in school). This is the first unit of the 12. They took ages to put together, so thought i'd share all that work and save someone lots of time as I know RE can be difficult to plan for. Please let me know what you think, or any ideas to add to it. The next 11 will follow shortly...
Really useful assessment sheets I made which breaks down the 4 areas of KS1 maths into progressive and levelled skills based on APP to make assessment at the end of the term/year much easier and to provide a good overview of any gaps in learning/coverage.
I have made a set for literacy also.
Here is everything you will need to run a KS1 maths challenge in your school. All the challenge are based on mental arithmetic and number facts. They will need to not only learn the number facts but also be able to apply them. There are 15 levels to the challenge - which are called 'missions' and for each, there is an accompanying homework sheet which details their mission and the 'reward. The first reward is to earn their meteor proof space suit, and others include gravity defying space boots, gadget belt and a multi coloured laser (all virtual rewards of course, but fun to collect!). The whole class then has a timed challenge (4 minutes) to complete the challenge sheet for whatever mission they are on. The challenge has been designed to meet the increased requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum and support preparation for KS1 SAT's. This mega resource comes with instructions, 15 homework sheets, 15 challenge sheets, 2 sets of stickers for each mission (one for the children and one for their books so 30 sheets in total), display pictures, a cover for the folder to keep all the resources organised, an information letter for parents and a list of all of the missions and their learning objectives. This resource is the result of many hours of preparation and is completely usable as it is but is also fully editable to enable you to adapt or personalise all of the resources. You could also create some additional challenges if you wanted to extend this into KS2. If you are happy to use it as it is then please download the FREE version. Please note that sticker sheets have been made to fit Consortium 65 labels. Feedback welcome, enjoy!

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*
I couldn't find any materials on this when I needed to teach my year 3 class what the equals sign REALLY meant.
I have included the lesson plan I used, the 3 differentiated worksheets and a Powerpoint I made.
Also have included a homework set of resource sheets (could alternatively be used in class as a reinforcement at a later date.)
UPDATE: Have added a more challenging resource for year 3/4
A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.
