How to work with parents on behaviour targets as part of Behaviour Plans

How to work with parents on behaviour targets as part of Behaviour Plans

A document explaining how to help a child meet their targets by focussing on the positive. These are the opening words of this 3 page document with useful diagrams:When you look at a child’s target sheet it is easy for the eye to be drawn to where they have failed and the negative comments that are sometimes there.If you comment about these the child will focus their energy on where it went wrong and their “failure”. It is a bit like saying to someone balancing on the edge of a cliff “Don’t look down!” Their eyes and whole body are drawn to the very things you don’t want them to do! If this negative focus continues, it can then build into feelings for the child such as “I got it wrong” “every time I try I fail” “I can’t do it”. This then gets translated into “I am a failure” “I am bad”.The overall effect is a spiral where the child behaves how he/ she thinks they are perceived and the behaviours we are trying to change become worse not better. The child may even fail to show his/her target sheet to you or “lose” it.Being “solution focussed” turns this on its head. It works on where the child got it right and builds on that. The approach relies on noticing, commenting on and magnifying where the child has “got it right” and subtly ignoring the failures. (This doesn’t negate the need for sanctions for breaches of accepted standards of behaviour).

Colour Synonym Flip-pack for desks/tables

Colour Synonym Flip-pack for desks/tables

These handy flip-packs enable children from Years 2-8 to improve their vocabulary choice within writing lessons. To create the final resource all you need to do is cut out each 'colour', laminate them and then hole punch through the hole on each laminated colour. A treasury tag can then be used to keep them all together. I have one of these on each desk my children sit at and they find them very useful. It also gets the point across that there are many ways of saying the same thing, but some ways are more impactful than others!

EDUQAS Route B, Theme 1.1 & 1.2 Keyword Mat (Origin & Meaning, Good & Evil)

EDUQAS Route B, Theme 1.1 & 1.2 Keyword Mat (Origin & Meaning, Good & Evil)

This is a resource I have used to assist my lower ability pupils with keywords. Each key word has an image, simplified definition , and phonetic spelling.in addition to this there are punctuation, connective and opener pyramids. I have included the command words for each question (describe, explain, discuss) and the meaning of each. I have also included 'Hat-Trick', 'FUR' and 'Co2' as this is something I have done with my pupils to assist with exam structure. These work best when printed in A3 and colour. I have laminated these and allow pupils to circle the keywords that they aim to use in the questions with a dry wipe pen which works well with my classes.
