Ideal tracking and assessment sheets for each year group from Year 1 upwards. They set out the expectations in each year group for S.P.a.G.<br />
I developed these to be stuck in children's books, so the targets can be updated and progressed tracked by both the child and teacher. These have worked very well at our school.
This fun, fact finding mission encourages children to find facts and write in an interesting and compelling manner. They will learn vital facts about the man who discovered the tomb and what those findings told the world about the ancient civilisation and indeed Tutankhamen/Tutankhamun himself.
This activity is a context led approach to look at changes over time, in particular how temperature changes as time goes by. <br />
Children find it much more interesting that watching the change in temperature as water cools.<br />
The activity centres around finding that learners will find surprising helping them make progress as a results. There is an engaging start to the activity through a very familiar story.
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
