I have worked in both KS2 and KS1 as class teacher and am also English Leader in KS1. For the last 5 years, I have been teaching in Y2, which gave me plenty of ‘SATs experience’. However, I have been trying to ensure that the skills children need to apply in their SATs are linked to everyday life experiences and have applied them as much as I could to our topics, in order to avoid 'teaching to the test'. I really value your feedback on my resources. Happy browsing!

Harvest Maths Bar Charts - Favourite Fruit

(0)
These differentiated maths sheets are about on bar charts: Children read the table of how many children like which fruit and make a bar chart of it plus they answer questions about it. It is differentiated into bar charts that go up in 1s, 2s and 5s. It is further differentiated for each (1s, 2s or 5s) - one is more scaffolded and the bar chart has been prepared, the other needs children to label their own bar chart. Furthermore the same activity again but with a blank table for children to investigate in their own class and create a car chart from there. PLEASE NOTE: This is only one resource. I also sell a pack of 3 Harvest resources (this one included) for £3.99 - search for 'Harvest Activities' by JennyGodfrey. THANK YOU.

Differentiated Christmas Comprehension for Song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' by Wizzard

(0)
This is a comprehension to use in English to jazz up your lessons when approaching Christmas. I would recommend it for (a high) year 2 and higher. It is based on the song 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day' by Wizzard which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx4Cyhf_neU There are four differentiated sheets with the lyrics of the songs and questions underneath. -Extended level: Retrieval and higher order thinking questions (Why, What does it mean..., Which word tells you that...) - Core: Focused more on simple retrieval from the text. - Lower Core/Nurture: Simple retrieval from the text but scaffolded multiple choice for half of the questions. - Nurture, SEN, EAL: Using the song and text children write words to match picture (vocab), find adjectives used to describe things and draw scenes from the song/label them.

SEN Behaviour Reward Chart

I use this with all three of my SEN children. On a monday morning they come to school and it's on their desk. They then choose reward/treat for Friday afternoon that they will get if they have mostly ticked all sessions on the timetable for the week. It works really well and can easily be adjusted. Their 1:1 are very good at helping them reflect about their work.

Differentiated Worksheets - Doubling Numbers (using Base Ten, DIenes Cubes, Numicon)

(0)
I made these worksheets for my year 2 class. It teaches them the skills of using partitioning with Dienes Cubes/ Base 10 in order to help them double numbers. It is very visual and they really understood it well. They drew the number that needed to be doubled twice and counted ones and tens to get the answer for its double. BYG - Below year group - see separate worksheet using Numicon for doubling WT - Working towards (2 digit numbers) E - Expected (choice of 2 and 3 digit numbers) WAGD - Working at greater depth (3 digit numbers)

Finding fractions of numbers / amounts as asked in KS1 SATs

(0)
I made this resource for my year 2 class after teaching the fractions of shapes and to move them on using this model to find fractions of numbers. There are differentiated worksheets. This is how we did it: 1. Colour in the fraction that you have to find on the circle eg 1/2. 2. Look at the number you have to share (eg 6) and share it into the fraction shown (on the circle share 6 between the two halves). 3. Count how many each fraction has. 4. Check the amount is equal. Please see the 2 pictures in preview for more detailed preview :)

Two differentiated sheets for mapping South America. Children make their own key of countries or fill in the key by colouring in the countries of South America. The challenges are based on Brazil and mapping cities/rivers. Works best when copied on/blown up to A3. Map for both attached in case your school has no atlases or not enough to go round. Attached as PDF and WORD (same sheets). Please see the 3 screen shots for detailed preview which can be found in the preview to the right.

UEFA EURO 2016 France - Different Flag Activities: Symmetry, Sorting and Comparisons

(1)
This is an activity based on the flags of the participating countries in the EURO 2016 in France. There is one sheet with all the names of the countries and their flags which is followed by 4 activity sheets: 1. Comparing two flags. Children choose two flags, draw them and compare them - what is the same and what is different. 2. Sorting the flags into symmetrical and non-symmetrical flags. 3. A blank Venn diagram for children to make up their own categories to sort the flags into (if you want to differentiate you could give them the categories). For best outcome blow up to A3. 4. A blank Carroll diagram for children to make up their own categories to sort the shapes into (if you want to differentiate you could give them the categories). For best outcome blow up to A3. I also added an information sheet about the Euro 16 :) Enjoy! PLEASE NOTE: This is only one resource.

Finding All Possibilities - Problem Solving Activities - Using and Applying

(0)
Here are 5 worksheets for finding all possibilities problem solving lessons. I could not categorise this resource on here properly as 'Using and Applying' or 'Problem Solving' are not on the TES system. Most of these resources are differentiated 2 ways but I found it worked best to do them in partners and discuss as class etc. It's good to do those over a few weeks as some are similar and reinforce learning points such as using a system/logical way of working eg always starting with same colour... Tower building challenge: Use 4 differently coloured blocks - in which order can you arrange the blocks? How many ways are there? Notebook File attached. Ice Cream challenge: Use 4 different ice cream flavours - in which order can you arrange them on the cone? How many ways are there? (A 3 scoop version available too) Design a flag challenge: Use 3 or 4 different colours- in which order can you arrange them on flags? How many ways are there? Mini beast hunt: 3 different kinds of minibeasts were found, 10 or 20 altogether. What are the different options? Chinese New Year Race Challenge: 3 (or 4) more animals turn up for the race of the zodiac. They missed it and have their own race. In which order could they finish?

Harvest Comprehension based on song Cauliflowers Fluffy (Paintbox)

This is a brilliant comprehension to use in English when talking about harvest as it links to RE. I would recommend it for year 2 and up. It is based on the song Cauliflowers Fluffy which you can find here on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRQEQgyGAGA Here are four differentiated sheets with the lyrics of the songs and questions underneath. Extended level: Retrieval and higher order thinking questions (Why, What does it mean..., Which word tells you that...) Core: Focused more on simple retrieval from the text. Lower Core: Simple retrieval from the text but scaffolded multiple choice for half of the questions. Nurture, SEN, EAL: Using the song and text children read for mening and find colour and adjective used to describe the fruit/veg and draw the harvest basket. PLEASE NOTE: This is only one resource.

Furthermore the same activity again but with a blank table for children to investigate in their own class and create a car chart from there. ADDING SEVERAL NUMBERS Here are 6 differentiated worksheets (2 pages each) that I made for my class to relate maths learning to Harvest. On each sheet, the letters of the alphabet are printed at the top and each letter has a value. Children then have to work out the total of several harvest words printed on the sheet. 1. There are three sheets designed for applying mental strategies to work out name scores: -WALT add using mental strategies: Adding single-digit numbers using basic number bonds. - WALT add using mental strategies: Adding several multiples of 10. - WALT add using mental strategies: Adding several multiples of 100. 2. There are three more differentiated sheets, where children can apply the column method or a calculator for addition to work out the score of each name: - WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 30). - WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 50). - WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 100). The children then work out their own word's score and compare them to the other words :) Can easily be edited for your own classes.

I made this resource for my year 2 class. There are differentiated worksheets/challenges designed to use when learning about and =. You can either teach the whole class and just use the sheet ot do the following: I designed it so that the WAGD group can teach themselves while you teach the rest of the class about the signs.

When you send the rest of the class to work on the activity you can check in on the WAGD group and move them on to further challenges included. Differentiated for SEN as well - cutting an sticking crocodile signs. WAGD - working at greater depth E - exepcted WT - working towards expected BYG - below year group SEN - special educational need Please see the 3 pictures in preview for more detailed preview :)

1. Maths sheet on bar charts: Children read the table of who was in the final in the past and what their results were and make a bar chart of how many goals were scored in each final throughout the years and answer some challenge questions about it. Differentiated - one is more scaffolded and the bar chart has been prepared, the other needs children to label their own bar chart. There is also another sheet where children choose 5 countries and represent in a bar chart how many times each country has participated in the final. 2. Maths activity on finding all possibilities: Differentiated three ways. Children have the task of designing a new football kit for their favourite country and have to choose three (four) colours. They then find all possible ways of putting a new kit consisting of either shorts and t-shirt or shorts, t-shirt and socks together for their chosen colours. This activity comes with a notebook file to model. 3. A two pages long information sheet with facts about the past, this year's games and the mascot. This could be used for research (individually or whole class) when making posters/leaflets etc. Or maybe just to get the kids hooked on the UEFA... PLEASE NOTE: This is only one resource.

Getting to know you and your class bingo

(0)
Great ice-breaker for the first day of teaching to get to know the children, help them to get to know each other and most importantly, help them get to know the teacher! It contains picture clues for ESL children. Children ask around in class and find someone who likes something that is pictured. If they find someone they put his/her name down on the grid. First one to have 4 in a row wins.
