      Early Years Planner

      Early Years Planner

      So we all have so much to remember in a week, meetings, messages to/from parents, children to observe, people we need to speak to - like when we need a letter creating for the following week, EHATs, appointments with outside agencies - SALT, etc and lets face it there is always at least one thing that we forget. Or at least I seem to, I have dyslexia and need to write everything down, only i lose the paper I write it on. So after searching for an Early Years planner for the last three years and failing to find one that caters for all of the hustle and bustle of the week I have created my own. It has space to plan provision, weekly activities, phonics and those all important things mentioned above as well as notes pages and checklists. Never forget a thing with this weekly planner that can be printed double sided....and to make it even better it has a child friendly border that you can colour...if you are like me you like to doodle A LOT! Enjoy the planner and I hope it keeps you on track and up to date to make this academic year easier and all together in one place.

      Primary Pupil Objectives Tracker

      Primary Pupil Objectives Tracker

      Important: "Primary Pupil Objective Tracker": This version of the tracker uses objectives from the National Curriculum and is a more detailed version than my previous tracker, "Primary Pupil Progress Tracking Tool and Data Analysis" This is a class data tracking tool, using National Curriculum Objectives, to assist teachers input, store, track and analyse their class data, including a vulnerable groups comparison and combined subject attainment diagram. This tool is written within MS Excel, so there is no need to purchase/ learn new software. Main Features: - Input up to 40 pupils and specify gender, pupil premium, and 3 customisable groupings (e.g. SEND, EAL, LAC) - Input 'Not met', 'Mostly Achieved', 'Achieved', or 'Mastery' for each 'key' objective in the National Curriculum for years 1 - 6 every half term - OR manually Input "Emerging, Expected, Exceeding" for reading, writing and maths starting with the previous year's end results, and continuing half termly (e.g. Autumn 1, Autumn 2, Spring 1, etc) - Print off class data posters for each half term showing full breakdown of data within vulnerable groups as to how many pupils are on track to make expected or above attainment and indication of typical/ accelerated progress. - Print off whole year data sheet giving overview of all data, colour coded to highlight weaker/ stronger areas (includes gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils). - Select individual pupils to view progress charts in reading, writing and maths compared to class average and national average; ideal for parent's evenings/ reports. - View 'windscreen' style charts in reading, writing and maths, showing at a glance children's progress throughout each term. - View a 'combined' subject Venn Diagram, showing which children are on track to meet expected attainment in all three subjects, or two, or one, or none. This tool will eliminate human error if you have previously been asked to gather data or calculate these percentages by hand and also improve consistency between classes and year groups. It also provides an excellent visual representation of children's learning across time. This is designed for individual teacher use, however please do get in touch if you are interested in whole school training.
