Thank you for sharing. I am going to use this with a child who has mild dyslexia ie the sensory slide using pictures and colour will be useful in writing creatively about the Iron Man , one of her topics in her primary class at the moment.
Thanks for sharing this! Wonderful resource. A couple of mistakes, but easily rectified, and certainly not one-star worthy! A lot quicker than having to plan a lesson myself! I shall be using this with my low ability year sevens. Thanks again!
Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***

A quiz that can be used at any time of the year, but created for World Book Day 2015. The quiz can be used in lessons and completed individually or in teams, in form time, whole-school or across year groups ... any variation will work.

There is a file called 'Quiz answer Sheet - Student' for pupils to complete and one called 'Quiz Answer Sheet - Teacher' which has all of the correct answers added. These are uploaded as Word and PDF files. A file called 'Image Credits' has the full credits for all the Creative Commons images used.
This gorgeously illustrated Unit prepares students for changes to the GCSE for 2017, including Victorian period fiction, non-fiction and poetry extracts sensitively abridged to lower the reading age to 12-13 so that KS3 students can access and enjoy these fascinating literary heritage texts.<br />

This is then followed by an activity that enables the children to design their own logograms/hieroglyphics in a Mayan style. <br />

This fantastic, fun, challenging, cross-curricula lesson is packed with learning and has elements of: computing, history, writing and speaking and listening, built into a lesson centred around independent learning and research. Children will be using and applying the historical learning they acquire creatively, as they work through the challenges of the lesson. An optional competitive element, combined with the fun of potentially becoming a Time Detective (and earning a Time Detective badge) create added motivation and increased engagement towards the learning. Children research in a holistic way building up a bigger picture of life the time period and then present their creations providing you with an assessment opportunity and a chance to decide the winners. The lesson ideal for either the beginning, middle or end of a history topic or unit. Can be done in an hour but better over two, contains starter and plenary. Made for KS2 but accessible to more able KS1 and less able KS3
