Letters and Sounds Assessment/ Tracking DocumentPhases 1 - 6

This is a Letters and Sounds assessment to be used for each pupil. At my school we start this assessment in Reception and we assess the children one a term.

These French classroom labels are dyslexia friendly with a yellow background and blue text. Labels include basic classroom objects/ furniture and basic instructions.

Broad Bean Experiment inc. resources, plan, slides

I did this as an observation lesson and I received 'outstanding' for it so I thought I would share! This is to teach the chn about how seeds germinate. I made them use their bodies to represent this e.g. spreading out limbs to represent 'sprouting'. There are slides which include a concept cartoon and 3 differentiated broad bean diary templates that I made into A5 booklets to monitor our broad beans over 3 weeks. This took HOURS to plan so enjoy!

Rainforest Coordinates - slides, and sheets

Rainforest Coordinates - slides, and sheets

I did this for an obs lesson. Please find attached slides and 4 differentiated sheets using a 'chillies' startegy (mild, hot, spicy and extra spicy) to allow the children choice of independent task. The children drew rainforest animals in teh grids and had to swap them with a friend to locate the Aftican animals using coordinates e.g. the elephant is in B3. They then wrote sentences to describe this at the bottom of their sheets. Happy plotting!
