This can be used either as a numeracy resource in registration or in maths classes. It's various maths questions linked to a number wall (it's an advent calendar for crying out loud!). It covers lots of different topics in number, algebra, shape & space and data and gets progressively more difficult as you go on. The date should now update automatically! Typos corrected too.
End of year quiz to use with all secondary year groups and classes, maybe years 5 and 6 too.
Quiz contains celebrity mash up, current years news questions, movies, general knowledge and music and theme tunes round.
Questions, Answers and MUSIC all contained in one easy to follow PowerPoint. Very easy to use, minimal work from the teacher:)
Pupils loved it, enjoy and have a great summer break.
Designed to reduce planning time & focus on key learning phases within a lesson. (Will still require thinking!) Remember - Sept. 2014 - Ofsted no longer require a lesson plan for lessons, but evidence of ‘a planned lesson!’ Useful for coaching and mentoring NQTs; or with established colleagues for paired observations. “Stickability” = What will stick in students minds as they leave your lesson? What key point do you want them to remember? Now translated into 8 languages. Pin your plan? bit.ly/5MinMapped Contact me @TeacherToolkit Updated Oct 2014
WHOLE SCHOOL TARGET SETTING All SUBJECTS Life Beyond Levels KS2 (NEW SCALED SCORE)-KS4 1-9 Grade Forecaster/Target Grades (Create targets for WHOLE school)
THIS IS A NEW AND UPDATED VERSION USING THE SCALED SCORES FROM KS2. I created this file to help set end of year targets for KS3 pupils based on KS3 Scaled scores in Maths, Reading and Grammar, punctuation and Spelling. I have identified a flightpath for each KS2 entry level. These have been based on Maths and English or both.
It is ideal if you are using 1-9 grades throughout the KS3 and KS4 curriculum and includes:
• a modifiable target grade/flightpath for each pupil. At this moment the flightpath for each child is linear and there is a steeper progress line for more able pupils (This is to ensure we are setting aspirational targets that will support whole school results going forward)
• KS4 target forecast grades for each child (I wanted to always have a handle on the actual final outcomes that these targets would result in should they be met by pupils)
• KS4 forecast for the whole cohort
If you want to discuss this further then please add me on twitter @thenortherner19 as I am keen to network.
The forecasting of grades uses grades of 1 to 9 with a fine scale of .1 .2 and .3 (Meaning entering, developing and secure respectively).
Using this file you can:
- use the existing flightpaths or modify them (see how they are graphically presented over the five years at school)
- these flightpaths will automatically predict a forecast 1-9 percentage for the Y7, Y8 and Y9 cohort at the end of school (this will help you to visualize the school outcome should you wish to check that forecasting is aspirational enough and would result in sound achievement)
- use these flightpaths to enter onto SIMS as a target grade
Please check my other KS3 Curriculum tracking resources on my online TES shop
The below subjects are based on KS2 Scaled scores:
• English – based on English only
• Maths – based on Maths only
• All other subjects – based on an average of Reading, Maths and GPS
• You can of course choose to follow any one of the above for individual subjects (Eg Humanities can use the English flightpath or Science can use the Maths one etc.
Here are five different forms that can be used to inform, plan and monitor interventions with students. There are also questionnaires for the student and class teacher to complete in order for a clear picture of the student to be gained.
