Algorithm sequence activity (cut out and order, add flowlines)

Algorithm sequence activity (cut out and order, add flowlines)

Can be used with any year group. Cut out and sort the algorithm, adding in flowlines. Note: Some children may put 'turn on tap' before 'put bottle under tap', this creates an interesting discussion point, as both algorithms achieve the goal. However, water is not wasted if the bottle is put under the tap before turning it on (Although there will be some clever child who states the tap must run cold first before putting the bottle under!). Extensions: Get the children to add in their own 'selection' (conditional operators; if, then, else) or decision diamond, e.g. is the bottle full? Yes - turn tap off, no - leave tap on. This activity is referred to in my online CPD videos: Delve in, for twelve min! See the video attached... For more info and to book me for training, please visit www.rundontwalk.co.uk

Tes Author Guide (New for Year 2018/19)

Tes Author Guide (New for Year 2018/19)

How to make your first £10,000 creating and selling teaching resources. This guide is written by the Tes best-selling author of all time, EC_Resources. It explains in meticulous detail the essentials that Tes authors need to know in order to make their authoring careers a long-term success. It is no exaggeration to say that becoming a successful Tes author can completely change your life. If you are looking to go part-time or even retire and still make the best of your expertise (without suffering financially), then this is the guide for you. From getting to the top of the search to making covers that people can't avoid clicking on, this guide contains 'the knowledge.' This is knowledge I have collected over 3 years and use every single day. Much of this information simply cannot be found elsewhere. This is a 22 page word document, with easy to follow images and instructions. It can be printed out and read at your leisure. I would recommend doing this as there is a good 3 hours worth of reading material here. I stress now that you will need time, determination and patience to make your first £10,000 - but I also cannot emphasise enough that ANY good teacher or educator who knows their specialism well and is computer literate can do this.

Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Children often know more about science that we think; sometimes they just donʼt have the skills to write down their ideas. I wrote this book because I have a strong belief that all children, whatever their literacy levels, should be given the opportunity to share what they know about science. Over the years, Iʼve developed a range of alternative recording methods that allow children to express their knowledge and learning. These have been tried and tested in the classroom. This book outlines these methods, gently guiding the reader through each one. I cover what each recording method looks like, the reason behind using it, some ideas on how to incorporate it into a lesson and how to use it to assess children. My hope is that this book will show teachers that there are ways to record and assess science that are fun and creative and that generate enthusiasm in the classroom. Most importantly - they donʼt involve an exercise book. By using these methods youʼll find that children, particularly those who lack the ability to get things down on paper, will demonstrate an amazing science understanding. They just needed to be given the chance to express it their way! This book was written for primary Teachers but the ideas can be used in secondary schools as well.
