Whole Setting Improvement Plan Template - Linked to Ofsted judgement areas

Whole Setting Improvement Plan Template - Linked to Ofsted judgement areas

(0)
A highly detailed improvement plan template that is designed to be an ongoing working document that allows you to fully document not only your identified areas of improvement but also improvements that you have made. The document is broken down into the four Early Years areas from Ofsted: Effectiveness of Leadership and Management, Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment, Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare and Outcomes for Children. Each area is then broken down into priorities, which are then split into smaller, more bite-sized targets that will allow you to meet that priority and improve that focus area. Each target gives you the opportunity to be highly detailed in who will meet that target, by when and how and also gives opportunity for evaluation. It is a working document that is colour coded to show progression over time in each area. It also has two additional sections to help plan and demonstrate management: a Continuous Professional Development Plan where you can detail the plans for different levels of staff and also parents and then keep a record of CPD and also a schedule for the year for various tasks such as supervisions, appraisals, parent, child and staff voice gathering, parents evenings, parent workshops etc. to help plan these so that they happen in a manageable way. This document has been through Ofsted inspection where it was highly praised. I have left a number of early workings on the document to give suggestions for priorities, targets and the other boxes that are there to support the improvement plan but these can be removed or adapted with ease.

Y2 Measuring weight plan

(3)
This is a part of a lesson plan for a year 2 lesson focusing on measuring weight. The activity is focused on middle ability group but can be adapted for lower and higher abilities accordingly. Certainly not all you need for a measuring length lesson but could be a helpful activity for one of your groups if you're struggling to think of what to do with them. LOs: All children must be able to measure objects using standard measuring units Most children should be able to weigh objects and sort into less/more than half a kg Some children could weigh objects to find their exact weight
Story Mountain Planner

Story Mountain Planner

(5)
This is a story mountain planner - one blank, one filled in. The idea is that the 5 boxes that follow the mountain shape should help children when they're planning and writing a story to write effectively. It encourages children to look at the beginning, the build up, the problem, the resolution and the ending, giving them a few questions to consider for each area to help them. I'd say that this is suitable for all of KS2.

Y2 Odd/Even Numbers Oral Mental Starter

(2)
This is an interactive whiteboard presentation that I've used as an oral mental starter for a Year 2 numeracy lesson. Get the children to circle odd numbers in one colour and even in another. I would make it more difficult by saying things like can you find me a 3 digit number which is odd and other things like that.
