I'm currently a teacher in a special needs school working with pupils who have ASD. I've worked in a number of age ranges, from 3-16. All of my resources are ones that I have used in class and have worked well! Although my resources are aimed towards pupil with ASD, they are easily and quickly adapted to use in mainstream schools too.

It can be used as a single use worksheet, or can be laminated and used with velcro to be used again - the latter is what I have done with this resource myself. The use of velco on this activity also adds a tactile element that appeals to pupils. It consists of two activities, one on number bonds to 10, and the other on number bonds to 20. I’m currently a teacher in a special needs school for children with ASD. The class I currently have range from P4 - 2C. These are a lifesaver.

French - Colours Sorting Activity

French - Colours Sorting Activity These activities are based on French, focusing on colours. They are sorting activities, where the pupils have to match the correct French word to the colour. The activity is differentiated three ways. On a basic level it is a simple matching activity. The other two activities require pupils to match the words to the colours and re-write the word underneath. It can be used as a single use worksheet, or can be laminated with velcro added to be used again - the latter is what I have done with this resource myself. By adding velcro to the activity, it adds a tactile element which seems to work well and engage the pupils. I’m currently a teacher in a special needs school for children with ASD. The class I currently have range from P4 - 2C. We use these differentiated activivities weekly as part of our MFL lessons, the repetition of these activities weekly is working well and the pupils are making great progress.

**Leaves, Trees and Flowers - Activities ** These worksheets and activities are all related to the topic of ‘leaves, trees and flowers’. I work in a special needs school for pupils with ASD.

Two of the activities are based on sorting either ‘leves and flowers’ or ‘trees and flowers’. The last document is a tick list that I created for a nature walk with my class. We walked around the school grounds and pupils had to tick off if they had seen that object.

**World War One & Warhorse - Differentiated Worksheet Activities ** These worksheets are all based upon either WW1 or the story of Warhorse. Our English topic for the half term was Warhorse. As part of this, I did some basic knowledge on WW1 before moving onto the story.I work in a special needs school for children with ASD. The levels in my class range from P6 to Level 2C. So these worksheets are extremely varying in level and ability. The worksheets included are: Settings Descriptions - Farms and Trenches In these activities pupils had to describe what they could see in the pictures on their worksheet. We did some examples on the board to model. ‘I can see’ - Farms and Trenches These were for my lower ability pupils. They had to say what they could see in the picture, and label it accordingly. They also had to state where the setting was based. Character Descriptions - Albert Narracott & Joey In these activities pupils had to describe the different characters. The pictures provided the pupils with examples of their physical appearance, however they were also encouraged to include things they knew about their personality. Handwriting & Phonics Booklets - WW1, Animals/Trench life & Warhorse Again these were used with my lower ability pupils. I set them up in a clear fashion, allowing pupils to get used to the layout. They had to verbalize the word, trace it, and then copy it underneath. They then had to match the word to the correct picture at the side. Animals used in WW1 In these activity, pupils had to cut out and stick the animals on their worksheets into the different sections. From this, they then had to write a sentence about the animals that were used in WW1.

1950s till Now - Technology/Toys/School Life Our history topic one half term was ‘1950s till Now’. I work in a special needs school for pupils with ASD, in class with pupils ages 11-15 and levels P6 - 2C. Due to this, I had to adapt my lessons to focus around topics that would engage pupils and relate to their own lives, hence the focus on technology, toys and school life. Each lesson we would explore and engage with different physical examples from each topic, from the different decades. Then each lesson we would use the attached worksheets. The worksheets are based upon a sorting activity, where the pupils had to sort the different objects into modern day or older. They are differentiated with the further tasks, such as labeling the pictures or writing a description underneath the activity. The following worksheets are included: Toys - differentiated into LA/MA/HA School Life - differentiated into LA/MA/HA Technology - differentiated two ways LA & MA/HA
