David Matthew Baker's Primary Shop

I'm currently training as a Primary Teacher so making a wide range of resources using a variety of programmes including ActivInspire and Smart Notebook. My shop also has some of my past resources that I made during my time as a Special Needs Support Assistant. I am also a Cub Scout Leader and have provided some of the resources I have made for this role where I feel that may be of use to others.

Year 3 Multiplying 2-digit by 1-digit numbers plus bonus Column Addition PPT

(0)
A PowerPoint complete with starter, plenary and worksheets all embedded within the same Presentation. This was made whilst I was in my Second Placement on my Teacher Training Course. The warm-up activity is a series of multiplication questions that are displayed for 6 seconds each. This is followed by L.O. and S.C. then a page where I would model solving the questions on a whiteboard. This page also has a series of 3 differentiated questions to check the pupils understanding of the content. They would then move on to small question sets with 5 questions per set. These have been designed to enable pupils to decide the level they wish to work at and to move between them after a set of questions. The plenary has 4 different mistakes for different level groups to spot and discuss with a partner. This can then be shared with hte other members of the class. The linked video shows clips from various points during the presentation. (Youtube: KyxAs_Js_UE) Also included is a bonus PowerPoint for Column Addition. This is in a similar format to the multiplication resource. This also includes worksheets as part of the PPT. There is a Pyramids Addition warm-up and a block method evaluation included in the PPT.

There is also a second page that they can use to stick any pictures of them doing these activities to.

This booklet was originally made for a Design and Technology club that I was running at my Special Needs school. We had a range of pupils from Year 5 to Year 9.

All of the students have a statement for autism. The workbook starts with a page on DT room safety; it then looks at the properties of materials and why they are suitable for the tasks we want to do with them; a bit of product research; design work; two worksheets covering how to vacuum form and solder and a simple sheet to do an evaluation on.

Hobbit / LOTR Comprehension & Descriptive Tasks

(0)
Here are two sheets I made when I had an English tutor (last time I applied for Primary Teacher Training). Both are themed around the Hobbit (or Lord of the Rings). In one you are given some text and asked to draw or construct a picture of a Hobbit based on that text. The other gives you a picture of Gandalf and asks you to write a description of the Istari (Gandalf) who is shown in the picture. I've never tried these with children so would be interested to hear how they go down with them if you do try them out.

The pages also include space for pupils to take part in self or peer assessment.
