Hi - Whilst this is easy enough to edit, can I be picky and point out that you need to make sure the numbers on the bar chart are ON the lines, not between them.
That said - easy to edit, so thank you.
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 />

DfE GCSE 2017 reference G19, G16, R2, N6<br />
Please review this worksheet.
An extremely useful resource that has almost unlimited application.<br />
I've taken the GCSE Maths specifications for 2015 and converted them into MS Word tables, landscape and portrait, mostly fitting on to one side for each area - number, algebra, etc.<br />
They can be used for planning lessons, schemes of work, cutting and pasting into lesson aims and objectives, or for recording pupil/learner achievement on each objective.<br />
In Word they are very adaptable, and columns can be added as required, for dates etc.
From the gory details of mummification to the technicalities of controlling the flooding of 'The Nile', there is a wealth of fascinating information contained in these songs. 'Gods and Goddesses' and 'Hieroglyphics' are featured and Tutankhamun gets more than a passing mention in two songs, one more light-hearted than the other! 'Pyramids', 'The Sphinx' and 'Toys and Games' round up this whistle-stop tour of Ancient Egypt!<br />
This set of songs on 'Ancient Egypt' consists of:<br />
* 20 mp3 files, with both vocal and piano backing tracks<br />
* a PDF of the music and lyrics<br />
* an illustrated PowerPoint of each song for use with digital projectors and whiteboards<br />
* a separate Word document of the lyrics.<br />
No licence is required for performing any of my material, and the music and lyrics may be copied freely for use within or by your school.
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
A short slideshow to show how to use collected data and express it in Bar graphs, Bar-Line graphs and pictograms. Requires prior knowledge or a starter explaining tally charts and frequency tables.
A class starter involves the creation of a tally chart and frequency table, based on a list of 5 animals (Dog, Cat, Horse, Fish and Bird). Each student gives their favourite from the list in order to populate the tally chart. Encourage students to fill these in whilst students give their answers before it's written on the board. (This data will then be used in examples through the lesson.)
The initial slide can be removed, as it is there to explain what was covered in the previous lesson (based on the previous lessons I took).
On slide 5, discussion is encouraged to find out why visualising data is important. This then leads to three buttons appearing with the three main topics on them. Using your cursor to click on a button will lead you to that type of graph. Each graph walkthrough is separated into two slides. The first slide is used to explain what the graph is and gives a blank set of axes (or table in the case of pictograms) for you to complete the graph using the data collected during the starter. The second slide then contains a new list of data, which the students need to use to create a graph in their books. Once the students have finished, clicking through the slide will provide you with the graph (one click brings up the first frequency, two brings up the second, and so on).
Once you have finished the second slide, a blue square button will appear in the top right corner. Clicking this button will take you back to slide 5, so you can then move on to another graph type.
This layout allows students to choose their own order of learning, which encourages interaction and gets them involved, despite being a choice that makes no difference in the long run.
A quick assessment slide at the end contains some key words from the lesson. This slide can be used to quiz pupils on each type of graph and its properties.
The final slide is a homework slide set for a year 7 group. Can be removed or altered to suit a difference piece of homework.
It's been brought to my attention that the file name contains "Lesson 4". The previous lessons were based around Mode, Median and Range, and an introduction to Tally and Frequency tables. The resources used for these were provided to me from elsewhere and created by someone else, which is why they've not been uploaded against this account.
These are the personalised bookmarks I created for my class last year. They still have the children's names and personalised messages on so that I could give you a flavour of what I wrote to them.
I simply laminted them and cut them out and the children absolutely loved them. Very cheap at the end of the year too.
These resources add to a synonym wall display. The 'boring&' word (such as &';good') is accompanied by more impressive synonyms (such as splendid, exceptional etc).
I bought a shoe holder with various pockets and stapled the boring word to the outside of the pocket and put the more interesting words inside.
There are pictures of the resource available at:
Here are three differentiated worksheets that I used with my year five class to help them to punctuate newspaper reports in preparation for writing their own.
The articles come from the newsround website.
This Maths pack includes a range of data investigations for different ability groups. This is a great Statistics lesson. Each group of children is given a question to answer. They will think about how they can collect and record their data before presenting it in different ways using bar charts, pictograms, line graphs etc. The questions are included as well as explanations of each activity. I have also included tally chart templates for the lower ability groups.
As part of a Year 3 Geography Topic on 'Our Local Area', I took my class on a walk around the local streets. Whilst walking, most children used a key to colour the buildings on a map, identifying the land use (e.g. commercial, residential, educational, recreational etc.). However, this wasn't suitable for the lower ability children in my class so I gave them pictures of different buildings and they had to tally how many of each type of building they saw. When they returned to class, they could then cut out pictures of the different buildings in order to make their own pictogram. These pictures and the pictogram template are included in this pack.
This worksheet could be used in a variety of lessons. We used it as part of our topic on the 'Local Area'. We wanted to know what different religions were in our community so we started with our class/school. Children used this tally chart to collect data about the different religions in each class. They could then draw a conclusion about the religions in our school.
Differentiated worksheets which allow children to explore properties of numbers and become familiar with both venn and carroll diagrams. Also a challenge worksheet to push children's knowledge further.
