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.

3 worksheets covering: Band Saw; Pillar Drill and Disc Sander. They ask the students to explain a safety rule relating to the equipment. When they have used the equipment and what the equipment is for. Each sheet has a hand drawn picture of the tool it relates to within my own school. I hope these might also be useful to some other people.

'Work Experience' Diary (Life Skills)

'Work Experience' Diary (Life Skills)

A simple booklet that I made for some of our Autistic Students to encourage them to do their life skills work. They used this booklet to record what they had done in the lesson (cleaning, washing up, ironing, etc...) and then were given a target by the member of staff with them for the next lesson. There is also a second page that they can use to stick any pictures of them doing these activities to.

Hobbit Conversation with Smaug Worksheet

A worksheet that includes some scans from a graphic novel version of the Hobbit with the text parts blanked out. The idea is that the pupils come up with the conversation that they think will have been held between Smaug and Bilbo. This was a worksheet I made when I had an English tutor. I've never tried it with children so would be interested to hear how well it goes down with classes.

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

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

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

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.
