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.

Self Assessment and Peer Assessment

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.

Lessons recap, revisit and build upon children's prior knowledge. The repetition during the recapping sections of the lessons are great for supporting children with retaining information. Throughout the lessons, there are thought provoking 'mastery' style questions, to encourage children to reason and explain. There are opportunities for peer assessment. We are learning to's include: to compare and group materials; to identify states of matter and their properties; to investigate freezing and melting/ to conduct a fair test; to observe when different materials change state when heated or cooled; to understand an irreversible change; to identify evaporation and condensation in the water cycle; to explain the processes of evaporation and condensation. Opportunity to develop science skills is also covered. Links to 2014 National Curriculum is made clear on each lesson plan.
