Cutting Corner

Here to help teachers avoid that extra bit of work and share work that has been successful in the schools I have worked in. I have worked in a variety of schools for 10 years. I have lead year 6, become head of Physical Education and taught in every year group. Certain work will be overly detailed with plans and resources. Some will simply be a useful powerpoint. My aim is to reduce workload. Happy to accept feedback.

Times Table Ninja Game- editable

(0)
This is a fun, whole class and an engaging Times Table game. This Powepoint, that is editable, will help your children to learn times tables through solving questions quickly. This will especially help children building towards the year 4 times table test and getting them use to time pressure in a fun way. I use this with my whole class. It allows all children to participate and provides a slight bit of pressure to finish within an amount of time. I include music too which the children love but I cannot include that in the ppt due to copy write issues! Type Crouching Tiger Night fight theme in Youtube and loop in the background or stop when the music does:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgr2wQiqBpw This resource can be used in many ways. My suggestions are below: Suggestion one: all children to have white boards and pens at their tables or on the carpet. Teacher to flash question up on the board. Children will need to work out and write the answer on their boards before the question disappears. Children to raise their boards in the air when they have written the answer down. Then verbally share answer and move onto the next one (teacher to control the pace of the ppt). Keep an eye on the quickest boys and girls and reward them with house points etc at the end. Suggestion two: do it like a mini test. When the teacher flashes up a question, children need to write down the answer in their books. Teacher to go through all the questions before going through the answers. Mark them all at the end Suggestion three: children to line up in teams with white boards and pens. Children at the front of the line solve the question by the time it disappears from the board. Those who do, get a point for the their team etc. Children to go to back of the line once they have attempted a question. It is possible to add and edit your own questions. These are just a random selection of questions to give you an idea.
Setting up expectations with your class

Setting up expectations with your class

(0)
This power point can be used to help set up rules and expectations at the start of a new school year. Or it can be used to help remind a class of some of the key expectations that you require going forwards. The pages contain only (mostly) images and titles to initiate/ guide your discussions with the class. You could allow children to brainstorm at each slide if you would like to prolong the session. However, a good discussion is sufficient.
