End of year review lesson, this can be adapted to be subject specific, it is currently English.

An end of academic year review with featured feedback sheet and prompt questions. This resource allows for a holistic approach to pupil reflection on their own behaviour, the impact of their attitude on their learning and their academic progress. PowerPoint allows for class discussion, the creation of a personal action plan and a feedback sheet for pupils to grade the quality of the teaching they have received. Featured L/O's: To be able to assess my progress and To show mature self reflection on my own behaviour. This is the last in a series of feedback collated throughout the year from pupils, it has certainly worked well with pupils really buying into the self reflection. It has also allowed me to develop my teaching and SOW's dependant on the feedback the pupils have given to me. It would work just as well as a stand alone lesson.

Appointments Wordsearch Starter Activity Work Planning Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Appointments Wordsearch Starter Activity Work Planning Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Appointments'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Crowns with Attitude! An  IB PYP Growth Mindset Activity

Crowns with Attitude! An IB PYP Growth Mindset Activity

The IB PYP Attitudes is a great growth mindset tool in itself as it teaches the children the attitudes of a learner and that everyone has the ability within themselves to have a postitive and successful attitude. This fun, crafty interactive activity can be used in a multitude of different ways. I like to use it as part of a growth mindset focus with the vocabulary and comprehension of the IB Attitudes being reinforced. Each crown has a space for the kids to write about how they have used or will use that particular attribute of a learner. Ideal for 1st -5th grades. UK & USA spelling. Suggestions for use: Reward attitudes as they are seen in the classroom Review the children's’ understanding of the Attitudes and have them select which one best suits them. Focus as a class on the IB Attitudes and the children can select their own crown. As a whole school award system for promoting the attitudes of a learner. Perfect for back to school as a getting to know you activity. This packet includes 14 different crowns plus teacher instructions and examples. If you like this activity, you may also be interested in my IB Learner Profile Crowns. You can many, many more ideas, freebies and PYP resources in my store and on my blog. Enjoy!
