A set of A4 cover sheets for the Teaching Standards. Each standard comes on its own A4 sheet with an outline of the standard, as well as examples of how to evidence each standard. Useful for PGCE or BEd students on school placements who need to provide evidence for meeting each teaching standard. Good luck with your training!

Number Posters to 10 (Numberblocks)

(0)
10 A4 posters for the numerals 1-10. Each poster features a Numberblock character, a representation on fingers, and the numeral. Please note these are not genuine Numberblock characters but a similar version that I created to support number sense.
Emotions and Facial Expressions - Build a face!

Emotions and Facial Expressions - Build a face!

(0)
A selection of photographs featuring eyes and mouths in different expressions (happy, angry, scared, sad etc.), and a full page face template for sticking them on. We have found this really useful for teaching children about emotions and when encouraging them to speak about how they are feeling. They can either be used independently as a cutting/sticking activity for children, or laminated and provided within continuous provision to encourage children to show you how they are feeling when they are struggling to articulate it.

Advent Calendar - Christmas Maths - Number Jokes

(0)
An interactive advent calendar for a bit of fun during the festive period. Children can click on a number from 1-25 for a silly number joke each day from a Numberblock. Great for number recognition during Maths starter activities, or whenever you find yourself with a spare five minutes and a classful of children!

Alphabet Display Posters - RWI Phonics Letter Formation

(0)
These A-Z display posters feature the letter formation rhymes from Read Write Inc but use photo-realistic images for each sound instead of clipart - to support younger pupils, EAL and SEN learners who benefit more from real-life imagery. Each sound is on its own A4 sheet.
Numicon Shape Matching Pictures
EYFSResourcesEYFSResources

Numicon Shape Matching Pictures

(0)
A selection of 5 images designed for actual size Numicon pieces. Children match Numicon pieces to the pictures (A4 size) or experiment further with numbers by choosing alternative combinations of filling in each picture. An optional recording sheet is also included within the download to encourage pupils to record which shapes they used and to add them together to find the total. These are great for differentiated learning - LA pupils can focus on matching shapes while HA pupils can extend to number bonds and addition. The students in my Reception class loved these sheets and would often choose to write down the numeral next to each shape that they used on the original picture sheet, and then count all holes to find the total, recording in whichever way they chose. There are lots of possibilities to explore and secure number sense.
