Differentiated 3 ways and easy to edit. Good for introducing line graphs, used with Y6 pupils being introduced and was very effective.
Update Jan 2013 - MA task is no longer frequency. HA task made more challenging.
This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
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***
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.
This revision covers topics required for the KS2 Year 6 Spag tests. It covers the DfE curriculum and currently being updated further. Broken down into short 10-15 minute teaching sessions with definitions and activities. <br />
My class have loved the short activities and have a strong knowledge of the key areas as you can quickly re-cap.<br />
Great to give this children as a handout, or to work through together.<br />
CURRENTLY UNDERGOING DEVELOPMENT FOR NEW CURRICULUM! <br />
Enhance understanding of area and volume factors by using these worksheets to calculate the surface area and volume of shapes before and after enlargement.<br />
Revise volume and area formulas at the same time. Calculate the area and volume factors by using the scale factor and see how the answer relates to the answers achieved from using formulas.<br />
Also calculate scale, area and volume factors given one of the three factors using roots and powers.<br />

I devised this programme during a summer holiday after feeling very dissatisfied with guidance on how to lead quality guided reading sessions. I also saw the necessity to gain evidence that was independent and therefore I took ideas from many different schemes and devised my own. This has proven very popular with over 150,000 downloads and I have now made the decision to sell it at a nominal cost. It took me weeks of work and I am confident that it has proven itself as a very good resource. I hope that you will enjoy using it and please contact me should you have any questions. I am only charging £2 for the whole set of resources that will save you hours and hours of work and will give you super progression and evidence to use on all AF's. Contact me for examples of my feed back.
A plan listing key days, festivals, celebrations each month, that can be easily link to the listed area of maths. We use this as a department to ensure SMSC, cross curricular links, real life maths, maths in and out of the usual context, enhance and improve pupils problem solving and applying skills, encourage discussion and to ensure consistency and the sharing of planning, resources and good practice across the department. We are now at the point where pupils are creating their own. Each member of the department takes a unit and plans a series of starters relating to the key dates and themes on powerpoint. The rest of the department then just edit and adapt for their KS3 class.
This is a straight line graphing activity. Print out the sheets and get students to work together to match them up. Answers are provided.\nStudents will need to have covered at least some work on Straight Line Graphs before being able to complete.\nActivity (if students do the cutting and work in pairs) will take approximately 30 mins.
A series of posters covering all of the non-fiction genres. I've also included some basic information on writing introductions and conclusions. Perfect for Y6 on the run up to the dreaded SATs. Have included PDF file AND publisher file in case you want to edit anything :)
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.
