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.
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.

These week plans were created for a mixed ability year 5 class, whose topic was Space. Their written outcome is an instructional manual for an astronaut. The PowerPoint includes the slides I used with the children, as well as grammar and group activities and task cards for differentiated writing activities.
I couldn't find a text on line which provided the example of what I was looking for in a model persuasive letter. So I wrote one (and wish that i had done earlier as it was quicker)
This is a letter to the head teacher which tries to persuade them to get rid of school uniform.
It can be used as a model text to look at with the children to identify features and language.
It could be used a starting letter to be up-leveled and improved
We used it as the 'Imitate' text at the beginning of a T4W cycle
Hope you find it useful and it saves you some time.
Why waste time writing your own when someone else can write the perfect mark response for you?
This is an excellent model to use with your students in order to prepare them for assessment or to simply explore as part of your AFL.
A worksheet designed to help students work out for themselves the basic rules for forming and using adverbs of manner, together with a practice sheet.
Note: if possible, students should use pocket-type dictionaries, as they often don't list regular adverbs. They won't then be able to cheat!

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
