UCAS / Job Reference Writing Guide

(0)
If you are a form tutor or are required to write a reference for your students, then this resource will really help you out! This should help make the process of writing UCAS / Job references for your students much easier for you, whilst giving your students the opportunity to take ownership of their reference. This is especially helpful if you are a new tutor and haven’t had the opportunity to learn much about your students yet, as they will tell you everything you need to know with this resource! Oftentimes, students can be very modest with their achievements and abilities and so this resource will really help to tease out their best qualities enabling you to simply lift content from their notes into your own reference. This is a 2 page resource which could be printed double sided. One side is for students to fill out and the other is a guide with some examples to help direct them and ensure they consider all their achievements and qualities. I hope this saves you lots of time and makes the reference writing process much smoother and more efficient! ************************************************************************************************************************ • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!

Cyber Bullying Awareness: Posters, Task Cards & Activities

(1)
Do you want to educate your students about the dangers of Cyber Bullying? It is a rising problem among teenagers and young people in this age of social media, so this resource will offer your students the opportunity to consider the dangers and effects of cyber bullying by encouraging them to discuss and reflect on realistic scenarios. I have used this resource on different groups of students from year 7-10 and it has proven effective for all ages. It's interesting that each age group has brought out its own conversations from this resource. I find it shocking how many young people (especially those below the required age of 13 to even have a social media account) are suffering from cyber bullying online and don't yet have the skills to handle it. This resource has made a significant difference to my students and I can only hope they go on to spread the word to others! I hope that my resources save you hours and hours of time: something we always sacrifice so much of as teachers. ❤ ********************************************************************************************************* • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!

Growth Mindset Inspirational zen doodle Colouring Pages and Posters - great for positive thinking and when taking tests! Most teachers are very concerned about their students during the testing period, and have found immediate positive results on student well-being with these motivational colouring pages. Most teachers have discovered that by giving students some time before a test to mentally relax with these colouring pages, it has had an immediately positive effect on student focus and motivation - try them for yourself now! There are 5 different colouring pages to choose from in this set, and the fact that these contain motivational quotes too, well that gives most students an immediate and welcomed confidence boost before the test! Most teachers have used these to create a calming and inspirational atmosphere in their rooms by displaying the finished sheets on the wall during the tests, which students love.

Back to School Get to Know You Google Forms

(0)
Get access to 3 vibrant and unique editable Google Forms ready for back to school! Get to know your students on a deeper level, have fun with "this or that" quick fire questions and ask your students' parents some insightful questions too! You will also be able to see student responses live on screen and use this information to really get to know your students. Also very handy if you really don't want to be dealing with extra piles of paper this year! New to Google forms? Don't worry, I have also included an exclusive video to guide you through how to use these forms in your own classroom :) *** Here’s a little background story as to why I created these Get to Know You Google forms: I recently took over a new class and I had a “hand over” meeting with their former teacher to tell me more about them. She knew most of them well academically and behaviourally, however she floundered when asked about their personal interests and admitted she couldn’t tell me anything about some of them…!? I wanted to make sure I knew something about every one of my kids, hence these Google forms were born! You’re bound to learn something about each student if you actually make an effort to ask them (and the quiet ones might prefer to type it up rather than talk about it) and you can then use that information to help build relationships over time. This set contains 3 different forms for you. There are 2 forms for students: • one goes deep on on their interests, fears and hobbies • the other is a more laid back and fun school related “this or that” game • the third form is for the parents / guardians so you can start to build a relationship with them too by getting their perspective on their child, learn what they want from you and how they would like to be contacted etc. The Google Forms are attractive and vibrant and can be done in class or completed as homework on any device that is connected to the internet. I wish you a long and happy relationship with your new class this year!
Emotional Health and Anxiety (PowerPoint, Printables & Discussion Cards)

Emotional Health and Anxiety (PowerPoint, Printables & Discussion Cards)

(0)
Are you concerned about the emotional health of your students? We all want our students to be healthy, and so we teach them about good nutrition and exercise. Fair enough! But what about their emotional health? I don’t know about you, but over the last few years especially, I have noticed more and more students suffering from feelings of anxiety. They’re struggling to manage these overwhelming emotions that are stemming from cultural changes of modern life. Academic stress (that is starting younger and younger), personal life and the pressures of social media are all playing their role and taking their toll. So, in an effort to help my students, and yours too, I have created this unit on Emotional Health which explores all the emotions that we feel and how a build up of them can sometimes lead to anxiety, as well as strategies for dealing with them. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! Everything is laid out for you ready to teach. The PowerPoint guides you through each point of the lesson with plenty of discussion points and activities to keep students engaged and reflecting on their learning. Also included are graphic organizer printables which are supplementary to the PowerPoint: they’re not a requirement, but they work as a helpful tool for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for bulletin board displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion cards for students to discuss the topic of emotions and get the conversation going about something that is rarely talked about openly. This unit can be used as whole group, small group, or even for 1:1 counselling. Product includes: • 24 slide PowerPoint • 11 printables of graphic organizers • 6 scenarios to analyze • 24 discussion cards Students will learn: • To identify different types of emotions • What emotions are and why we have them • Why people have different emotions to the same scenario • How understanding emotions can help us • Helpful vs unhelpful emotions • What to do when an emotion is unhelpful • What to do when emotions are overwhelming • Physical and emotional effects of anxiety • Worries and concerns that can cause anxiety • How to help ease anxiety • Short term and long term strategies for anxiety Let’s break the stigma on openly talking about emotions and feelings. It doesn’t have to be something done in therapy alone, we all have emotions and our students need to learn why we have them and how we can manage them too. I have found teaching this unit is effective in morning meetings with tutor / advisory classes or as whole life skills lessons too, depending on how much time you can allocate. It is such a valuable topic to talk to our students about. Thank you for all you do to make a difference in young peoples’ lives! Great for Social Skills, Life skills and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health Education) lessons.
Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder

(1)
Performance Management: Teachers' Standards Evidence Binder (Includes most up to date standards from June 2013) With Performance Related Pay now in full swing for teachers, it is more important than ever to document the evidence to prove that you are meeting the standard requirements which enable you to earn a pay rise, or at least remain at the top of the scale. Oftentimes during the appraisal meeting season in September, we are reflecting on our achievements from the previous academic year but it can be difficult to remember everything we have done if we rely only on our memory! It is also often confusing to know where we can find evidence to prove we have met the standards; this is why I created this resource. Tired of being less than inspired by dull blankets of text and confusing layouts of these standards, I decided to design something a little more aesthetically pleasing and easier to navigate and organise evidence with. With this 20 page binder, you can clearly see each of the standards and you have a simple and efficient system of both making quick notes and recording hard evidence of how you are meeting the standards. So get organised with your performance management and ensure you get the pay you deserve as a teacher! **************************************************** • If you choose to download this resource, please take the time to leave a rating - I do really value your feedback and I always look forward to reading what you think about my resources!
