Year 1 Phonics Practice PPT Pack - Real and Imaginary Words

Year 1 Phonics Practice PPT Pack - Real and Imaginary Words

A very useful set of 5 PPT presentations to display clearly on the IWB and quickly move through them instead of flipping flashcards. Of course if you do wish to use them as flashcards, you could easily print off the slides. There is an illustrated 'imaginary creatures' PPT with pseudo words based on previous phonics screening materials. Each word is forst displayed without the sound buttons then with to enable children to try to apply their sound knowledge independently then 'sound out' together as a class/group. The remaining 4 PPT presentations contain all of the real words that have been used in the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 phonics screening checks. They have been split into section 1 and section 2 as they are in the actual papers. There are 2 versions of each section, one with sound buttons and the other without. Having the complete variations of sections 1 and 2 and with and without sound buttons offers lots of ways to differentiate between groups of at different times of the year as the new sounds are veing taught.

EYFS and KS1 Calculation Policy - Teaching for Mastery

EYFS and KS1 Calculation Policy - Teaching for Mastery

Here is a calculation policy written to meet the aims of the 2014 National curriculum for KS1. It is fully editable so can be adapted to suit the needs of your individual school. I also have a FREE version in my shop that has been made generic so that it could be used by any school, or could be used as starting point for you to create own more personalised version. Both provide a progressive set of strategies based on a concrete, pictorial, abstract (CPA) approach and provides lots of images and examples to enable teachers to apply this in their classrooms. I wrote this policy after spending many hours trying to find something like it online but nothing was structured quite how I wanted it to look. I Hope you find the resource useful, please leave feedback.

2D and 3D Shape Bingo Cards

Set of bingo cards of basic 2d and 3d shapes. Enough cards for whole class if working in pairs. Squares have been made the same size as square post it notes so that children can stick post its over the shapes and the teacher can easily lift the flap and see if they are right. Alternatively, if laminated, children can mark of with whiteboard pens. I use real shapes in a bag which I pull out, then children mark off the ones they have.

What is a church - Unit of work (Half Term)

What is a church - Unit of work (Half Term)

I have produced units of work to cover the whole of KS1 for religious education. There are 12 units in total, each designed to last a half term. They cover Christianity and Hinduism and come with most of the required resources (some are physical resources that we have in school). This is the first unit of the 12. They took ages to put together, so thought i'd share all that work and save someone lots of time as I know RE can be difficult to plan for. Please let me know what you think, or any ideas to add to it. The next 11 will follow shortly...

Phonics Screening Practice - Pseudo (fake/nonsense) words - Alien Resource Pack

Phonics Screening Practice - Pseudo (fake/nonsense) words - Alien Resource Pack

Save yourself HOURS of work with this lovely interactive resource pack providing practice materials for the pseudo words that children will encounter during the year one phonics screening check. The pack contains 2 colourful PowerPoint presentations, 2 sets of printable flash cards, a lesson plan and an activity sheet. The resources would provide a numerous lesson and can be used year on year. The pack focuses solely on the pseudo words as in my experience, these tend to be the words children find most challenging in the check, even for able readers. The materials have been carefully prepared following the principles of the Standards and Testing Agency (STA) screening checks, ensuring a broad coverage of sounds including vowel digraphs and common consonant blends.
