Turner's Teaching Resources

I am a fully qualified teacher and have been teaching in Key Stage 2 for 8 years. I have a worked tirelessly to get to grips with the new 2014 curriculum and over the last few years I have created resources which I can draw upon and tweek yearly to fit with my creative curriculum. I have decided to start sharing/selling my resources as I have spent time developing them and actually sometimes it's easier to download/buy a quality resource than spending your evenings and weekends making them.

Plotting line graphs activity

(0)
This document contains differentiated activities for plotting graphs. Lower ability: collect data in their own tally chart and then draw a bar chart to show their data. Middle ability: use the data provided to plot the line graph. Middle ability +: use the data provided to plot the line graph, including negatives. Higher ability: use the data provided to draw, label and plot the data correctly. This task is currently linked to China because that is the topic that I created it for however I have also use it for other topics because it is temperature based and therefore the task is easily adaptable to any topic.

I created this lesson for a science lesson observation for Year 5. It is well resourced and differentiated through the use of Bloom's taxonomy questions. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching this lesson and the progress the children made was very clear throughout the lesson. Be prepared to get wet and I recommend having kitchen towel on hand! Have fun!

Intervention tracking grid RAG rated

(0)
This resource is designed to support TAs/Teachers to track small group interventions through a RAG rating. It encourages discussions between TAs and teachers so that the interventions taking place have a positive impact upon the child's work in class. Research has shown that interventions which are not communicated back to the class teacher have little to no impact on the child.

Differentiated activities for percentages of amounts. The activites range from simple 50% and 25% with bar models to support to 1% of amounts. The activities ar e colour coded from purple to yellow. Purple, blue, green, red, yellow and increase in difficulty. The red and green task are the same as I intend for my red group to complete it independently whilst my green group will be supported during a section of the lesson.
