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.
Save yourself HOURS of work with this lovely interactive resource pack providing practice materials for the pseudo words that children will encounter during the year one phonics screening check. <br />
The pack contains 2 colourful PowerPoint presentations, 2 sets of printable flash cards, a lesson plan and an activity sheet. The resources would provide a numerous lesson and can be used year on year. <br />
The pack focuses solely on the pseudo words as in my experience, these tend to be the words children find most challenging in the check, even for able readers. <br />
The materials have been carefully prepared following the principles of the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) screening checks, ensuring a broad coverage of sounds including vowel digraphs and common consonant blends.

A set of simple resources to support the use of rhetorical questions and some simple prompts to write an information leaflet on Cardiff Bay. I've used it with low ability GCSE classes, but would suit any age, depending on their level.
Originally a one off lesson used for an interview - this could be adapted to a longer period of work. Involves non-standard units and cms - again can be adapted to suit. The growing topic is based on Mr Bloom from Cbeebies, so more suited for young children.
Children loved making pizzas at our Italian pizza class. Resources have been exported from an Activ-primary flip-chart. (Which also includes Italian Pizzeria style music.) Fun to play when the children are making their pizzas or working. If you would like original please message me.

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.
