Super Synonym wall title display poster English KS1

Super Synonym wall title display poster English KS1

I put this up in my classroom, and with 4 different 'boring' words underneath it. Children come up and stick post it notes around the 'boring' word and think of more 'exciting' words to use - which we call 'super synonyms'. Great way to get children excited and engaged in English lessons. I use this in Year 2/ KS1 but no reason it couldn't be used for other age groups. Enjoy!

Feedback and Marking Ideas for CPD

Feedback and Marking Ideas for CPD

This is a resource that I used at my school to present a CPD session about reducing workload and increasing the effectiveness of marking. It has links to academic research and twitter feedback champions. All of these ideas come from "Mark. Plan. Teach." By Ross McGill.

All the news fair and balanced. Or is it? Our students come from homes where these news outlets become the moral compass of their parents. They then come into school with less tolerance for others only to discover that diversity is everywhere including their classroom. This audio will help you understand why teaching tolerance is so important.
