(based on 62 reviews)

Hi everyone. A teacher for 19 years. I have a lot of experience as a literacy co-coordinator and have developed resources in this area in the past which i am hoping to share with you More recently I have become a member of the SLT so am now branching out into several new areas such as EAL, Pupil Premium, monitoring etc so hope to share any resources that i make on this current journey in the hope of saving others time when they are looking for something similar for their own practice.

Morning Maths - year 2/3/4 (depending on ability) - 1 year of sessions

6 Resources
This bundle incorporates all of each terms worth of morning maths activities, so you get a whole year of daily maths. While getting progressively harder as the year goes on, the questions also go back and revisit basic skills which need to be practised. Originally planned for a year 4 class, these mixed arithmetic questions would be now suitable for year 3/4 or higher ability year 2s They can be used as a morning activity, warm up starter, homework or test.
Child friendly TAFF checklist years 5 and 6

Child friendly TAFF checklist years 5 and 6

I developed this resource so that my children could fully understand what is expected of them when they are writing. They can use it to self or peer assess. It gives a breakdown of the TAFF with short explanations to remind the children what the features are. I found it better to use this from the beginning of the year to give children time to demonstrate their abilities, to give me time to collect evidence and I also use it to plug the gaps in their learning. I hope you find it as useful as i do

This is intended to be used by Senior Leaders. I used this form to track professional development and support given to staff across the year. It is a good way to condense all the info from learning walks/ book scrutinise and any other monitoring and see it altogether on 1 form.

teaching over time

This template is for Senior leaders It is a simple excel document which you can use to track teaching over time (using inadequate/ requires improvement/ good/ outstanding - or adapt with own words). I used it to amalgamate judgements over all areas to get a broad idea of where a teacher was overall and then to track progress.

Year 6. Writing interim assessmnet framework. Guidance/translation of the staements. KS2

After sitting down with my year 6 team to use the interim assessment framework to assess the children's writing, we discovered 2 things. 1) It was going to be a lot of work 2) Some of the statements were a little vague and we had to keep referencing the national curriculum to check - which took more time So, I made this 'crib' sheet, which hopefully makes the writing statements a little clearer and all on 1 sheet (per level) so staff do not have to keep looking forwards and backwards between 2 documents. hopefully you will find it useful too!

Behaviour log

(1)
A simple table to record behaviour incidents for your class/ school We used it to track behaviour in our phases for the children that were sent to us (SLT) and the BeCo would review it weekly to find patterns and deal with any recurrent problems A fresh one would be used every half term
