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.

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. It contains questions that will appeal to all year groups and not exclusively just to pupils who read.<br />
The pack contains a Powerpoint (and PDF version) file called 'Book Quiz WBD 2015' that can be used by the teacher to guide a class through the quiz. 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.
A fantastic optical illusion. Could be used as a starter in Physics, Biology or Art. I have used this several times for Science Week assemblies - a hall full of students audibly stunned at how their own eyes work. Strongly recommended.
These worksheets are designed to be used time and again with different books. <br />
These are designed to be used in guided reading sessions. Many of the worksheets are designed in such a way that a student can complete them independently. However, to get the maximum out of this book, I would highly recommend these worksheets are used to consolidate the learning taking place in the classroom.<br />
Another use of this set of worksheets is additional homework sheets. I have used these sheets very effectively as a way of checking to see if students have read their book and do fully understand what they have read. <br />
I hope you enjoy this book and that your students are inspired to take a more active, more motivated role in their own learning.

Planning sheet has space for 5 sense descriptions, VCOP elements and purpose, audience and genre notes to help meet the new 2014 curriculum. Starter activity é 2 widths of line guides/writing sheets included plus optional paragraph planning sheet, custom art sheet and self-assessment plenary activity mean that this lesson's length is flexible and could easily last for 2 hours if you wanted it to and comes with 3 different options for delivery over 1,2 or 3 lessons. Lesson is aimed at KS2 but suitable for more able KS1 and KS3 as it is differentiated by outcome.
Attached is 30-40 minute independent work sheet taken from an Outstanding rated lesson. The worksheet features a detailed guide of how to calculate energy used, and provides further instructions that enable students to calculate cost. The final section of the worksheet allows students to calculate their own energy use in a typical day using unit prices taken from British Gas and EDF Energy, and average power ratings for common appliances. As an extension, students can calculate overall Energy cost with both British gas and EDF, then make a comparison between the two companies.<br />
Also attached is a Excel workbook in which students can enter their Total Energy uses and their Total Energy Cost values. The spreadsheet will automatically calculate class totals and class averages, as well as providing interesting facts (such as the Kg of Coal required to meet the daily Energy demand of the class).
A blank lesson plan template suitable for any primary year group - includes references for National Curriculum, differentiated success criteria, notes for lesson content, AfL, differentiation and resources. Very easy to use.
This resource is a blank template for lessons in German ("Stundenverlaufsplanung") as commonly used in the German school system and teacher training. German language educators may use it to schedule the various lesson phases (such as elaboration, exercise, documentation) and map factors such as length, learning objectives, student and teacher activities and teaching methods.
I am a Science Teacher who has developed and shared this template with members of my department in order to provide a lesson plan that fits on one page, is quick and simple to fill and ticks Ofsted criteria.
This small unit of work is a minimum 3 hours of creative fun that inspire, challenge and boost students self confidence in drawing. No matter if you are an art specialist or not this power point will have you look like an expert and engage the students.

This is a power point that enables all students to draw in one point perspective. There are 9 slides in total holding numerous animations to enable a step by step procedure for your students to easily follow along with.
I use this in my lessons and have found this to be good for students with low self-esteem and basic skills as it shows them how to start the drawing. It was also good for the gifted and talented students as they are encouraged to creatively and independently explore details using perspective rules.
Why this product was designed:
To promote self-confidence at an early age in students own ability to draw 3D realistic imagery on a 2D surface.
Intended use for a lesson:
This product is meant to be used in a lesson that is based on architecture and/or architectural drawing where the teacher requires an outcome in one point perspective. I have started students drawing on A5 size paper (half of a regular printer size paper) so they can practise their skills. After learning one point perspective I’ll have my student go onto drawing two point perspective and finally from there I’ll have students draw on A4 (regular size computer printer paper) in the choice of one or two point perspective. This product is meant as a student follow along power point that teaches the students the rules in one point perspective.
Lesson 1 will teach students the basic rules of 1 point perspective while they copy line for line the first two buildings.
It then encourages students to use the rules they have just learnt to continue drawing the rest of their cityscape creatively in 1 point perspective.
Lesson 2 focuses on creatively adding details and structural elements into the students building on a step by step basis.
Lesson 3 focuses on shading the buildings. Here the lesson would benefit by starting with the drawing tonal starter work sheet in order to get the student thinking about tones.
This product is designed to be a tool for teaching students Colour Theory that tend to learn better through kinaesthetic learning. It also acts as a good memory jogging tool (starter) before students begin painting or colour mixing in lessons. The flash cards are designed to make students more familiar with colour blending, which colours mixed together make what colours, and colour theory with the labelling of primary, secondary, opposite, analogous, tinted and shaded colours. This pack includes printable flash cards, an answer key for teachers and a suggested usage page.
Attached is a word document that I use with my GCSE (15 year old) students for their art exam. I tend to give them this document at the beginning of the project so as they work throughout the project they have access to the sentence starters when they need as many of my students tend to complete their writing tasks at home.
The sentence starters/ annotation frame work give suggestions on how students can start writing about their work and works of other artists. I've found this very helpful for the less able students.
This document includes sentence starters for writing about a:
- Statement of Intent
- Artist Research and Links
- Primary or Secondary images
- Observational studies
- Media trials
- Evaluation of Final piece
It also has a list of key words that could be used within the annotations and tips on how to be successful.
If you choose to purchase this and find it very useful please leave me a rating to let others know what you thought. If this is something you have found extremely helpful please tweet, FB share, cut and paste the link into emails and share the link with other teachers in order to help them.
