Supply Teacher Folder

Supply Teacher Folder

Whenever a teacher needs a day off for sickness or a course, it can sometimes feel like more work to not be in school than it is to be in it. I created this document to make leaving my class with a supply teacher easier for all involved. I know how hard supply teachers work and I know how hard it is to walk into a class and not know the children or the timetable. This folder allows you to keep all the crucial information that a supply teacher needs to know about your class. Just edit the document and include everything that a supply teacher could need to know, print it off, put it in a folder and leave it on your desk! I’ve included a supply teacher feedback form in the download so you can be easily updated on how the day went, who behaved, messages you missed etc

They Walk Amongst Us

They Walk Amongst Us

After the horrific events in Parkland Florida I am encouraging everyone to download this FREE resource that explains why we have to take a tougher stance when disciplining children and stop soft peddling when it comes down to consequences. Political correctness needs to be looked at closely in relationship to students and adults who because of their digital footprint have proven that they are a danger to society.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Harry's Developing Character!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Harry's Developing Character!

This engaging and informative lesson enables students to understand how the lead protagonist of J.K Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Harry himself) develops as a character throughout the narrative. In doing so, students learn the key structural features of the ‘Bildungsroman’ genre, and apply these to the different stages of development that Harry experiences. They then go on to design their own Bildungsroman storyboards! The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through: Comprehending how Harry is initially introduced to the reader; Reading extracts from Chapters 2, 10 and 17 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, identifying how Harry’s character develops; Analysing how the story fits the structure of a Bildungsroman novel, and tracking Harry’s development through the stages; Creating a storyboard for their own Bildungsroman novel; Self assessing their learning attempts. Included is: Whole lesson 30 slide PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; Collated paper extracts of Chapters 2, 10, 17 of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; Harry’s development tracking template; Create your own Bildungsroman novel storyboard template; -Comprehensive lesson plan. All resources are provided in Word (for easy editing) and PDF (to ensure formatting remains fixed between different computers). There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with year 7/8 classes, however colleagues have used them for between years 3 and 10 with some adaptations.
