Teachers’ workload is too high. Teaching has always been demanding, but why has the issue reached epidemic proportions? At a time when teacher recruitment and retention is under severe pressure, school leaders need to understand the issues, challenge their own thinking about their policies and be open-minded to new ways of working in schools.This resources considered what drivers have aligned to create this situation and what government, OfSTED, school leaders and teachers should be doing about it. During the session, we cover in detail the three areas which teachers raised as causing their biggest workload issues: marking, lesson preparation and resources and managing data.

Number and Place Value (Lesson plans, slides and worksheets)

Number and Place Value (Lesson plans, slides and worksheets)

Complete set of planning, slides and worksheets to provide 5 follow up lessons on number and place value. This has been written with Year 6 in mind but the resources are easily adaptable for other year groups. The worksheets have written with mastery in mind and so follow the following structure: Worksheet One - Works on practise and fluency (LA) Worksheet Two - Practise, fluency and reasoning (MA) Worksheet Three - Practise, fluency, reasoning and problem solving (HA) All worksheets include answers. Differentiation is achieved through self-assessment of own abilities to choose which worksheet they do. Lesson 1 - Place Value Lesson 2 - Prime Numbers Lesson 3 and 4 - Rounding Lesson 5 - Negative Numbers These have had great success in previous lessons and challenge and stretch children of all abilities.
