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.
Designed to meet the new 2014 curriculum, this engaging yet challenging complete lesson comes with: starter activity, fun and thorough lesson input and 2 fun plenary activities to choose from (a game and peer-assessment) all on the included PowerPoint. The enjoyable yet challenging learning activities have 3 levels of differentiation and are simply explained in the full teachers' notes, which also include answers for peer-assessment. This fantastic lesson teaches children what modal verbs are and how to use them in writing and has been created with enjoyment and challenge in equal measures. A brilliant way to easily teach a difficult learning objective.
These 10 worksheets all have short stories (c.100 words each) with the full stops missing. Designed for repeated practice to help children who find it hard to accurately add full stops to their writing, whatever age or key stage whilst also improving reading comprehension skills and the ability to check their work for errors.<br />
Stories contain full colour images and are designed to be interesting to children and spark discussion regarding where a full stop goes and how the end of a sentence is identified. <br />
Extension would be to check, peer assess and add capital letters or to continue the story with accurate sentence boundary demarcation. All images sourced from openclipart.com<br />

A power point presentation of poems by <br />
Brenda Williams about the season of winter, with five linked lesson plans and twelve worksheets, to develop an understanding and appreciation of poetry, and as a springboard to other curricular activities at Second and Third Grades
These two packs offer a wide range of photos (71 eye catching, exciting photos) from both the minibeast world, especially insects and from a broader range of animals, especially mammals and birds. <br />
These could be printed out and laminated and make an excellent resource for any science or biology laboratory. <br />
It would also be useful for teachers who want their students to sort animals into different groups or create their own classification charts. <br />

Sheets for students to stick in their books or for teachers to display in their classrooms that describe requirements for levels and sub-levels in reading, writing and speaking and listening.
An accessible resource that allows students to take responsibility for their own progress. It's also a helpful resource for teachers when setting targets. Students find their level on the sheet and they can then look to the next level where it says 'To get a level 5b, I need to...'
Also included is a marking key sheet for students to stick in their books to enable teachers to state the particular markers they use to marks students' books. Also, a personal target sheet for students to self-assess their ability at the start of the year. Students may review this at different times of the year to assess their own progress.
There's also a target record sheet for students to keep in the front of their exercise books to keep a record of their targets. The idea is that they start filling in their targets from the bottom of the sheet so they're effectively climbing "the ladder" and making progress. Students should regularly review the sheet with their teacher to assess whether they're meeting their targets and whether their NC level is improving over time.
6th Grade ELA Common Core Posters- Emoji Print. Includes an individual poster for each standard as well as strand headings.
It is so important for students to see, read and become familiar with the standards they are learning. I display the standard we are working on each day on my white board. I print out all of the standards at the beginning of the year (and laminate them!). I then sort them by strand and hole punch each one. I put them on book rings so that I can easily post them on my board on a magnetic hook
'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest.
It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition.
It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions.
Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation.
Several verse examples are provided for clarity.
Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.
'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs.
I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching.
Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause.
Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
Designed for KS1 - 4 Teachers, LSAs or parents to help young people achieve writing or literacy goals.
Older students are able to use the workbook independently. Also suitable for adult projects and making changes to your life.
This workbook gives an opportunity to reflect on what's important in life and in relation to Literacy and Writing. There is ample space to think, log goals, timescales, actions. In particular, the positive self-reviewing section (supporting optimism) by collect evidence of success, is essential for success. Additionally, the resilience strategy and spaces for reflection can be used if needed! Fabulous feedback to date. Workshops available.
Perfect for Y6 and KS3 SATs although best completed with the support of an adult or parent at this age.
