Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.
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***

In this lesson children will learn all about Mayan written language, their hieroglyphics, glyphs and logograms.<br />
After an engaging multimedia teaching input, they will explain their understanding of the objective and go on to draw comparisons with how we communicate in the 21st Century. <br />
This is then followed by an activity that enables the children to design their own logograms/hieroglyphics in a Mayan style. <br />
Complete 1hr lesson (could run to 90 mins) including...<br />
- PowerPoint: starter activity, teaching input (with web resource and video links) and a plenary activity.<br />
- Worksheet pack with two worksheets plus extension activity for any early finishers. <br />
- Teachers' notes.<br />
YouTube links are provided for videos but a website is provided for a video converter if your school doesn't have access. <br />

Maths Revision for Red Nose Day. *All* monies I recieve from TES website (60% of what you pay) for this resource will be given to Comic Relief. I will keep nothing! What TES choose to do with their 40% is up to them! :-)<br />
You can: <br />
(i) run it as a plenary on screen.<br />
(ii) print the full set of 9 nose's questions on a single sheet of A4 and then photocopy onto a larger (A3) quiz sheet.<br />
Answers included for each option in format consistent with the option (one-to-one & block of nine).<br />
This lesson looks at the impacts on cloud computing. It was originally created for the Edexcel GCSE in ICT but can be used for any course which contains cloud computing in the syllabus. Contained are the lesson slides and graded, differentiated worksheets
5 levels because, sometimes, that's what you need!\nIn Word format so you can adapt them (change the names of the teachers and children for instance!)\n\nDesigned to practice mental calculation strategies. Children cut out and stick in the problems as they solve them, making jottings (if they need to) in their books.
Worksheet of KS3 questions based on Number - Level 5 - Problem Solving Good in class as a worksheet for consolidation, working together in groups during whole class teaching or for independent homework.
These are APP linked activities where the more able children are extended to investigate whether the centre part of a venn diagram is ab, when one area = a and the other = b. They are to find examples to prove and disprove the statement.
There are also APP learning objectives for children who are at the stage of finding common multiples
Leveled questions on line graphs and block graphs with APP links
In response to people asking for the answers, I found with my class that the children produced a range of readings from the line graphs and therefore would produce a range of answers, all equally correct. I deliberately wanted the activity to be open ended - some children used reading rounded to the nearest ten, an element that I hadn't anticipated.
Lesson plan, teaching resources and differentiated work for 3 lessons
1) Partitioning numbers into tens and units (MA hundreds)
2) Adding multiples of 10.
3) Using partitioning strategy for addition.

A game that can be played in pairs, threes or independently. Please note that this game focuses on times tables facts from 2 to 10 to ensure children are confident in these tables before progressing to the 11s and 12s, which will need to be taught subsequently.
Children need a 'Table Splat' mat and counters (different coloured counters for each child). Children take turns to turn over a card, revealing a times tables question. The child who is the first to place their counter on the correct answer (whilst shouting 'SPLAT!') can leave their counter on the board. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board once all of the times table cards have been used.
Differentiate by choosing the multiplication cards relevant for that child, depending on which times table they are currently working on.
*Update: 6s and 9s have been underlined, to avoid confusion.*
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
A Japanese theme game. The children play the game which leads on to - Investigating the frequency score of 2 dice. (What are the best numbers to choose to help you win the game next time?) Lessons include find the odd one out starter activities, success criteria and worksheets. There are also questions to encourage the children’s mathematical thinking. My class find it fun to make up a quick Sumo dance… where they bow to each other before and after each game.
