A resource used when learning how to write invitations in my year 1 class. All resources are linked to our Peter Pan theme. For the first lesson we looked at what needs to be included in an invitation and the children investigated existing party invitations and then wrote notes on what they were going to include in their own. The following day the children used the reminder sheet to help them to turn their notes into a proper invitation. This pack contains a lesson plan and powerpoints for the two days as well as writing frames and help sheets.
A range of different resources created to get year 3 children to write persuasively. Resources include starters, main group activities and a powerpoint. Gets children thinking about what a good advert looks like and what techniques we can use in persuasive writing. The overall aim of the unit of work was to be able to sell products to ‘dragons den’. The children were asked to design their own tea and to persuade the rest of the class to buy it. This can be linked to DT as the children then can design and make their product.
A whole lesson on teaching money to year 1. The starter gets the children to match the coins to their value which is one of the NC objectives. There are then a few examples of coins in a purse on the board. This gets the children thinking about how to add different coins and how to write this as a number sentence. After the whole class input the children have their own purses in their books. This activity is differentiated with LA children working with 1p’s and 2p’s. MA are using coins up to 10p and HA children are working with coins up to 50p. The pack also comes with next steps stickers to be used when marking or when moving the children on in the lesson.
A plan and resources following the new RE curriculum for year 1 on celebrations. The pack contains a six week plan following the new national curriculum guidelines. The plan looks at celebrations- the celebrations the children may have been to, achievements, Jewish Passover, Eid, Christian wedding ceremonies and special places. The pack contains a powerpoint presentation to go with the plan along with activities for each lesson.
The first lesson for block 1 Spring 1 following the White Rose scheme. Due to the aility levels in my class the first lesson comprises of a warm up where ‘Beaky’ has jumbled up the numerals and words counting to 20 and the children have to move them around so that they are correct. I have then focused the first lesson solely on counting by adding on using the pictures for ‘first’, ‘then’ and ‘now’. This is the only part of the varied fluency included in this pack. The activities are differentiated. LA are to just fill in the sentences using the pictures with colour coordinated words. MA have higher numbers and have to complete the the ‘now’ picture (and in my class will have support) and HA are to complete independently without the colour coordinated words as a clue. I have then included two reasoning questions. I know that there are often problems when opening up a publisher document so I have also included the PDF. I hope it saves you time!
A SP&G lesson on coordinating conjunctions. This was used when teaching my year 1 children what a coordinating conjunction was for the first time. Begins with a revisit of what we know about main clauses and simple sentences and then moves on to looking at coordinating conjunctions. There is an activity at the end of the powerpoint where the children are to choose the best coordinating conjunction to complete the compound sentence.
A resource used when teaching a year 1 class about adjectives. Contains a powerpoint with two pictures of an icy setting to describe, a sound clip to be played when the children are thinking about what they may hear in this setting, a thermometer picture to use as a prompt when thinking about how cold it may be there. I used the resource alongside fake snow and fans in boxes. There are senses spinners for lower ability children as a prompt to get them thinking about using the 5 senses to describe the setting. There are also a range of snowflakes. Blank snowflakes for children to write their own adjectives on to share with the class and others with a range of different adjectives on for LA children to decide which ones would be well chosen and which wouldn't. They are then to match the well chosen adjectives to the picture.

A lesson created to teach year 1 pupils about the past and present tense and how to add -ing and -ed to change the verb from past to present tense within writing. The presentation starts the children thinking about the difference between a sentence in the past and one in the present. It then looks at how to add -ed and -ing to the root word to change its meaning. For their independent tasks the children are to write two sentences about the picture; one present and one past tense, using what they have learnt about suffixes. The powerpoint is linked to our theme which is Antarctica and penguins.
