I provide a wide range of resources for use in the classroom and around school. My resources build on children's learning and consider the smaller steps children need to take to achieve the learning. My resources have a focus on 'mastery' style questions where possible, to develop children's critical thinking and reasoning skills. As a practicing primary teacher myself, I know how essential it is to have well organised lesson resources with engaging activities that focus on the learning.

We are learning to understand the dangers of communicating on online gaming. Lesson plan, PowerPoint and link to video to hook children and make learning relevant and real to them. Lots of deep thinking questions to encourage children to consider how they communicate in games; when it is and is not ok to communicate in games. Touches on online bullying and teaches children to block or report abuse. Focus on what personal information is and not sharing this in the online world. Choice of follow up task. Plenary provides opportunity for peer assessment. My class were absolutely hooked on this lesson and had fantastic discussions. They went home being much more aware of how to keep themselves safe when gaming.

Example: [NAME] has demonstrated persistence throughout the year by learning a range of number facts and in particular, times tables. He now needs to learn all the times tables up to 12x12 and be able to recall these rapidly. [NAME] has been able to apply his knowledge of number facts to using formal written methods for calculations for all four operations. He is developing confidence with applying these to problem solving and becoming more fluent with this. [NAME] has enthusiastically explored all areas of mathematics. Pleasingly, [NAME] is developing in confidence in explaining and reasoning mathematical concepts within small groups and during classroom discussions.

Self Assessment and Peer Assessment
Squelch1Squelch1

Self Assessment and Peer Assessment

(0)
Self and Peer assessment forms to encourage children to critically consider the learning that they or their partner has achieved and give praise for these by identifying what has gone well. Children also become more aware of the presentation of their work. Encourages children to think about giving constructive feedback to themselves or a peer and set a target to work toward next time. Children are much more engaged in remembering and responding to such targets. Can be edited to include specific learning objectives or success criteria, hence this resource can be used for any lesson. Helps you identify what children really know about their learning and how well they are doing. A great edition to children's books to for book scrutiny or inspections, particularly in line with the 2014 curriculum. Could support your marking, cutting down the time you spend on marking. Used very effectively across KS2 and has really improved children's thinking about their own work. They no longer finish work and never look back over it again. It has really started children talking about their work. For less able children, a class discussion before hand about what learning may look like and possible targets to set has been helpful.
