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 pack of 5 revision worksheets - Each one containing 46 different past paper SATs style questions, all fitted onto one double sided A4 sheet <br />
Great for keeping photocopying down whilst practising loads of past questions!There is a record sheet (including key skills) for each pupil to record their score after each attempt and try to beat it the next time! Each worksheet has similar questions & key skills but with new numbers each time in order for pupils to build confidence, fluency, and consolidate their learning. <br />
Answers for all questions are provided (as pdf and ppt) - each on a single page which can be projected onto IWB in one go or printed out on a single sheet to allow for self/peer marking.<br />
Could be done in class with support or at home for revision - Ideal for some intensive last minute SATs preparation. (PDF files)
Engaging, fun and challenging complete SPaG lesson with differentiated learning objectives that teaches how to punctuate direct speech with inverted commas. Also extends to adding speech punctuation and replacing said. Children then work through 4 activities designed to develop their understanding using different skills. They identify, create and explain, with the more able going on to a challenging extension activity. There is also a fun activity in there too that your class will love. Self/peer-assessment plenary is also included to really help cement the learning in their minds and potentially make marking easier for you too. Aimed at Year 3 from the 2014 curriculum guidance but could be taught to Y2 and Y4 as well or any class that needs a reminder! Teachers' notes and answers included along with starter activity, teaching input (including video link) and plenary all on the PowerPoint. All images either sourced from openclipart.com or owned by tftf.
Designed to meet the new 2014 curriculum, this engaging yet challenging complete lesson comes with: starter activity, fun and thorough lesson input and 2 fun plenary activities to choose from (a game and peer-assessment) all on the included PowerPoint. The enjoyable yet challenging learning activities have 3 levels of differentiation and are simply explained in the full teachers' notes, which also include answers for peer-assessment. This fantastic lesson teaches children what modal verbs are and how to use them in writing and has been created with enjoyment and challenge in equal measures. A brilliant way to easily teach a difficult learning objective.
This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book - Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny - can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.
This double lesson plan gives you fun hands-on lessons all about light and the colours that make up white light. It also looks into how we are able to see things the right way up and the importance of lenses! <br /><br />
<br /><br />
This session includes lots of fun and memorable experiments for children to try. <br /><br />
<br /><br />
This double lesson plan is ready to use with no preparation other than gathering the readily available equipment and printing out the worksheets that are included in the lessons!<br /><br />
<br /><br />
The 2 sessions are designed to last between 45-60 minutes each (90-120 minutes in total) dependent on the activities you choose to include!<br /><br />
<br /><br />
Have a go, have fun and learn something along the way!!<br /><br />
Still using levels for one last year? <br />
This document shows the expected progress of pupils, term by term, for years 1-6. <br />
In case it interests you, I have included some levels that are loosely matched to Reception outcomes-these will give a baseline for year 1. I tracked the use of my baseline levels over the last academic year and found they demonstrated expected progress across Year 1, but I do appreciate that attributing levels based on EYFS outcomes is generally frowned upon, so you may choose to ignore that part!
Relatively self explanatory. The aim is to match the cards to make words - list on whiteboards, or play in any other way you wish.
The words are split into chunks
spr ----- ing
To read, and blend sounds to make words.
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
This is an introduction to balanced number sentences and challenges children's thinking about thinking of number sentences more creatively.
Once you have gone through the LO and Success criteria, children are taught that number sentences need to be balanced but the order of the question and answer is irrelevant. Children are then exposed to number sentences such as 5+6=3+8. On whiteboards, children can think of their own balanced number sentences using a range of operations.
There is a link on the slide to an activity from the Nrich website called which symbol. An excellent interactive activity or if you prefer, print it out and let children work on it independently.
The last two slides introduce brackets and and how they can affect the answer.
The activity is differentiated into Mild, Spicy and Hot.
This is a problem-solving investigation linked to multiplication and multiples. The Zios and Zepts activity is from Nrich.
The lesson starts by asking children to talk about multiplication related vocabulary to their partner and feedback.
The starter involves children reading several definitions and children to match to the key word.
Then read through the Nrich problem and explore different ways to solve. I have mentioned drawings, numicon, multilink and number sentences. Feel free to add any other resources. Number lines would be another option.
This is an entire lesson, which follows on from the previous lesson on exploring fractions using physical resources. However, this time children all need to have a fraction wall. Other resources are desirable but not essential.
The lesson starts with a recap of what children already know about fractions.
Like previously, the three things that are covered in the lesson are:
Comparing fractions - children have to order a set of fractions
Finding equivalent fractions - children to find equivalent fractions for a given fraction
Finding fractions that make a ONE whole - children are challenged to find 2/3 fractions which add to give one whole but they cannot use the same denominator
