With the New Curriculum in force and Levels gone I have taken it upon myself to create a new assessment grid for Science. It works the same way as an APP grid. It also includes the Working Scientifically criteria. Like the New Curriculum, each assessment grid has been grouped into age ranges, KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2. Rather than Levels, which I know OFSTED are dead against, I have gone with 'Stages' which admittedly is essentially the same thing as Levels, but by a different name, Having tested these myself I know that these grids are handy assessment tools, with simple highlighting needed, with dates, to show how well each child has done.
I have created this target sheet to be stuck on the inside cover of Year 5/6 children’s English books. All the targets are for the new curriculum 2014. <br />

This lesson is a fraction investigation and a simpler investigation, is included for any children who are unable to access the harder task. A detailed lesson plan accompanies the children's worksheets as well as all you will need for the whiteboard. The main investigation involves children exploring which fractions can be made from the total number of Smarties, e.g. 1/2 of 40, 1/4 of 40, 1/5 of 40, 1/8 of 40, 1/10 of 40, 1/20 of 40, 1/40 of 40 and linking these to the factors of a number. They also draw conclusions about which of the numbers are prime numbers and give reasons for this. Once they have done one number they eat a Smartie and start again. Whiteboards and pens are required for the warm up activity (on IWB resource). Each child also needs a box of mini Smarties (available in multipacks). The simple investigation looks at which numbers it is possible to find 1/2 of with the children looking for patterns, e.g. even numbers, multiples of 2.
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 />

Complete lesson with starter, teaching input and peer-assessment based plenary all on the included PowerPoint. Children discuss, plan and then create writing based upon an inspiring, historical story starter writing prompt. The planning sheet asks thought provoking questions ensuring an original, well thought out piece of cross-curricula writing that is full of their own ideas. Other writing genres can also be applied to the plan. Suitable for big writing, creative writing, assessment, moderation or just a regular English lesson. There is also a creative drawing sheet included and lined writing sheet. Variable length: can be done in 1 hr or extended to nearer 2 hrs if required. Children will also practice empathy skills and have the opportunity to demonstrate their historical knowledge.
This complete lesson will easily produce some very detailed drawings that would be perfect for display and is very easy to teach. It comes with an extension activity for any early finishers and a reflective self-evaluation sheet for a plenary activity. Brief PowerPoint introduction introduces learning objectives, links to a video, and explains the difference between portrait and landscape. Perfect for KS1 or KS2 and differentiated by outcome. Part of a 6 lesson art & DT unit designed to match local area study, nature or woodland topics - available to buy from the TES. Also suitable for a discrete art lesson any time of year.
Children are challenged to design a room under budget using cut-out pictures from a home decor magazine. Combines visual art skills, maths skills (budgeting and calculating money totals) and descriptive writing skills. <br />
Includes a thorough lesson plan (with materials list) and accompanying success criteria and follow-up questions for the whole project. Also includes a notebook file, and a scaffolded workbook to accompany children through the creating and writing process.<br />
A4 card is recommended for this project.<br />

This is my completed version for the myths and legends unit. Its more or less similiar to the previous unit I uploaded. The texts I am using are from a variety of places including the web, Usborne Greek myths for young children and The Orchard book of first Greek myths. I choose the ones which are most appropriate for my class or adapt and rewrite some if they are too tricky for my children to understand.
