Mindfully Teaching

Hello. I'm a KS1 teacher currently teaching in the Midlands, UK and love all things English, Mindset and self-care related. With an honoury degree in PE and having competed internationally in Athletics for 10 years, stepping into teaching has taught me that good habits and good health make happy teachers. My shop provides you with resources to aid your delivery of good teaching and learning and ideas to teach more mindfully to benefit you and your munchkins. Happy browsing...

The end of the year is almost here and you will soon be in a ‘handover/transition’ meeting with a fellow colleague learning about your next cohort. Often there can be a lot of information to ask of them so I’ve created a handover sheet with questions I usually ask to gain an insight into my new class. I hope you find this useful. Please leave feedback or let me know if you use it on IG: @mindfullyteaching
Planning Tool for Writing

Planning Tool for Writing

(2)
This planning template has been designed with assessment, evidence and a good standard of independent writing in mind. It can be used in both KS1 and in KS2 and is a guide to areas to be considered whilst planning for an independent written piece. Often you may get to the end of a unit of work and think ‘Crumbs! They could have used the words water, plant and beautiful so easily in this piece of writing - how did I miss that?’. We’ve all been there. If you print and jot ideas down whilst planning a unit of work first, you can ensure all the NC targets, spelling rules, TAF statements and vocabulary are included. Following this, the planning cycle should be used as a guide only and is flexible. E.g. You’re writing about Queen Elizabeth but a lot of the GPS targets you wish to include have already been taught in Autumn. So you will only need 1 GPS session to revise, apply and sentence stack to create ideas for the independent piece of writing. The cycle ensures you have a range of activities to build writing ideas from, such as: Hook Drama GPS links and more Thanks for downloading :)
