After a little experimentation I worked out how to add all the posters in the same place, so here (hopefully) goes:
Formative assessment posters for gymnastics, for display to pupils or as a guide for staff, detailing how to progress between levels.
<p>I created this booklet as a way of getting pupils to engage in self-review at the end of aunit of work and to look for progression. It also acts as a way of presenting them with their assessment data at the end of each unit so, combined with my formative assessment ‘How Can I Improve’ posters (elsewhere on the site) they know what to do to progress. For it to look it’s best - as I intended - you’ll need to download and install the font it uses - Action Jackson, which is free but you’ll need to google it to find it.</p>
An example of one of my PE policies. It's not complete or totally comprehensive but if you&'ve been landed with the responsibility of writing one - especially as a Primary School teacher - it could be a useful starting point. Please feel free to use as much or as little of it as you like. OFSTED were happy with it in it&';s previous incarnation in June 2004.
These student encouragement cards are a great way to quickly recognize your students for their hard work and effort in your class. Positive feedback is so valuable in a teacher-student relationship. Before they leave your class, why not give a student an encouragement to leave with, to let them know how much you care and noticed their effort. <br />

The “Olympic Field Day Event Cards- 50 Olympic-Themed Field Day Events” product is a visual package of signs that can be used during large group school, church or community field day events. The cards serve to help field day volunteers, teachers, leaders and students easily understand the “Olympic-Themed” events by delivering specific instructions and providing attractive graphics depicting the activities. Without having to provide a great deal of verbal explanation to volunteers and teachers, your field day event can run easily and efficiently.<br />
Each individual event card contains the title, instructions for play, a graphic of the action taking place, a representative host country (including a background of the flag of the country and an athlete holding their flag) and a current, past or future Olympic sport that resembles the event in some way. These are “Power Packed” cards that are attractive, with a lot of information that can be discussed and explored prior to, during and after your Field Day!<br />
Inside the packet are 50 Olympic-themed Field Day Event Cards to be used on grassy-type fields, in a gym, on a hard surface and with water. Also included in this product is an event table that provides a general description, equipment needed and a set-up diagram for each event. The table can be cut in strips and handed out to the volunteers to help with the set-up and implementation of the events during the day. Most of the events are relay type events, however there are a few “large group team” and “rest and relaxation” events too. <br />
NOTE: Some of the events in this product are similar to Field Day events that are available in other packages I have designed. These cards however are unique and were created for Olympic-themed Field Days Events!
