I’ve uploaded my White Rose ‘Fractions’ Spring Block 3 planning. Including resources I’ve used from the White Rose (turned into an easily printable format and visual PPT to share). This is week 2 of 4.
This is my own personal planning which I’ll be using in my class in a couple of weeks. Hope you find it useful, it’s not made specifically for TES so there will most likely be some spelling errors etc
Week 1 - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/white-rose-year-4-spring-block-3-fractions-week-1-of-4-12056297
Week 2 - here
Week 3 - https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/white-rose-year-4-spring-block-3-fractions-week-3-of-4-12072262
Week 4 - a link will be posted when it has been planned
If you’ve used my planning previously please note the following:
This is the first week of using an evolved format. As a school we are continuing to deepen our understanding of mastery for all and all children working within the same tasks each lesson. This allows the class to move forward as a whole. Differentiation comes from support, visuals and deepening with the same task rather than moving on.
We have moved to a ‘weekly’ success criteria (WALT/WILFs) and each day working on a different WILF within that. Our WALT and WILFs for the weekly snapshot are moving towards more formality in terms of technical language and directly mapping onto the learning and the curriculum so the children are really clear about exactly what they are learning.
I’ve then introduced ‘learning chunks’ with 4-5 chunks per lesson introducing new concepts, consolidating, recapping, mini tasks or problem solving activities. I plan in exactly the same way as before but have made it clearer through these chunks where we are moving on or linking to new ideas. I think this makes it clearer when to bring the whole class together to self-assess or work through answers at the end of each chunk.
This then makes it easier to know where the gaps of the class as a whole are, where intervention is needed or if a lesson needs to be split over two lessons where would be a good time to stop. It will also make it clearer what ideas need to be recapped at a glance.
As a school we’re also still using White Rose and following it, however we’re only using the resources as an when they’re applicable to the needs of the class. I’ve included all the resources from the White Rose on a PPT and in a printable format and will supplement them in as and when.
I love planning using it and it makes it much clearer for me to use and follow. Maths is my absolute favourite thing so I hope it’s still just as useful for you – I plan for myself and then upload to help others, but remember my resources and planning aren’t make specifically just for TES.
