This is an Interactive team game for able beginners. 5 categories with four graded questions in each. Topics are on personal information: name, age, where you live… Score needs to be kept on a flip chart or whiteboard. Correct answers earn the points indicated on the question slide. Incorrect answers have that number of points deducted from the team score. Pupils working in mixed ability teams works best.

KS2 maths resource. 3 levels of worksheet. Differentiation achieved by selective use of denominator (e.g. L1 denominators are 2, 5; L3 are 2-12). Each zip file contains a worksheet and answer sheet. Task is to supply the missing numerator in an equivalent fraction.
These differentiated sets of worksheets are written to meet the objectives for Year 6 Number. Each of the four topics is split into three levels, indicated on the worksheets by 1, 2 or 3 stars. There are 3 versions of each worksheet.
The material could be used in several ways:
* work through all the levels with the whole class
* use the levels to target varying abilities within the class
* use extra versions of tasks to set as follow-up homework
* where pupils are inclined to copy, use different versions of worksheets to ensure independent working
* extra versions of tasks can be set as assessment at the end of a unit
Learning objectives are given at the beginning of each sheet.
A simple ‘thumbs up’ style of self-assessment is printed at the bottom of each task.

Five folders each containing 3 worksheets to support teaching of German greetings. The sixth item is a presentation linking to the online resources on which the worksheets are based (this file is available separately as a free resource, but is included here for convenience).

Nouns, noun phrases and adjectives are covered fully, and at the end there is an indication that the same rules apply for other types of lists (verbs and adverbs, for example).

The second file is a worksheet where pupils have to supply the commas in sentences containing lists. Answers are provided. Lesson plan also included.

This is the first of a series of short texts for teaching SPaG. I was looking for material that I could use for teaching spelling, grammar and punctuation, and which could be used at the end of the week as a dictation assessment. Unable to find anything suitable, I ended up scribbling them myself on a Monday morning. Most of the themes are directed at the class I was teaching at the time, but some teachers may relate to them. I called them The Monday Nag, for obvious reasons!
The pack contains a PowerPoint presentation, and five activities. There is a spelling sheet covering the points highlighted in the text, a Cloze activity, a supported dictation worksheet for lower ability learners, a writing task, and a crossword on grammatical terms best suited for more able pupils.
I would suggest working through the PowerPoint on the first session of the week and leading up to the writing task and the dictation at the end of the week, by which time children should be thoroughly familiar with both text and SPaG content.
Lesson plan and complete resources for Y5 lesson. Mental starter followed by PowerPoint presentation on ordering numbers of increasing length and difficulty. During the presentation, pupils work in pairs or small groups to practise the skills required for the independent work. Two levels of worksheets are supplied - 5 in each folder.
