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.

Capacity Investigation

(5)
An interesting and challenging capacity investigation. Can be solved mathematically by more secure mathematicians or can be solved by using cups, buckets and water for younger or less able children. There are a range of possible answers for example 700ml could be achieved by: 500ml + 500ml = 1000ml 1000ml - 300ml = 700ml 500ml - 300ml = 200ml (repeated 3 times) = 700ml

Year 5 Spelling Lists - Covering full Y5 curriculum

(0)
22 spelling lists for year 5 (enough to cover the whole year, with room for recapping lower key stage 2, or progressing onto year 6 spellings) Well organised. Each spelling list covers a specific rule from the year 5 curriculum, or common exception words. Note, as the spelling curriculum for year 5 is merged with that of year 6, I have separated the spellings into two separate year groups. Each spelling has space for children to find out what the word means and then use the word in a sentence, so as they learn more about the word than just the spelling. Easy to use in class and can be used easily alongside spelling lessons/other resources for learning spellings. Also useful to help you identify spelling rules to teach. Sheets can be sent home to help children with learning their spellings. These have also been used for recap work in year 6. Children may need to recap the spelling work from years 3/4 (also available).

KS2 TRADITIONAL NATIVITY PLAY SCRIPT

(0)
39 speaking parts, approximtely 15 non-speaking parts plus dance troupe and choir - these can be edited to suit your school. Lasts approximately 45 minutes. Ideal for KS2. Option for inserting your own song choices - I began with some well loved Chistmas carols and then used more traditions Christmas hymns/carols throughout the play script. This really warmed the hearts of our audiences and even brought a tear to some eyes! Quite a traditional play script as written for a C of E primary, but without being too dry. Opportunity to personalise some parts to your school too. Very easy to follow. Everyone can get involved and have a great time!

Opportunity for children to consider what the states of matter are and identify these within their own environment to make their learning meaningful. Children start to explore the properties of materials. Some 'mastery' thinking required for deepening and mastering learning. 3 differentiated activities (2 of these are provided, one is an independent task and is on the PowerPoint)
