(2)
This is created to give children the opportunity to meet (and exceed) what is expected of them in the teacher assessed KS2 writing assessment. 30 slides (to accompany the book Journey). Each slide has a different focus. A step by step approach that introduces all aspects of the writing assessment criteria including: • creating atmosphere, and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action • using a range of cohesive devices, including adverbials, within and across sentences and paragraphs sentences and paragraphs • using passive and modal verbs mostly appropriately • using a wide range of clause structures, sometimes varying their position within the sentence • using adverbs, preposition phrases and expanded noun phrases effectively to add detail, qualification and precision • using mostly correctly: inverted commas commas for clarity punctuation for parenthesis • making some correct use of: semi-colons dashes colons hyphens • semi-colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses • colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses This was a real labour of love. Enjoy.

Last Minute Maths Reasoning Paper 2018 SATS Revision. Year 6 - KS2.

(1)
A flip chart and SATS style question paper based on both reasoning papers (paper 2 and paper 3) . Created by a year six teacher (93% maths at and above expected pass rate last year), maths coordinator and deputy head. Used on the afternoon before the 2017 maths SATS tests and updated in 2018. The flip chart allows the teacher to model the mathematics concept with a SATS style question and then gives the pupil the opportunity to use and apply what they have just seen. This is designed specifically for revision purposes as I have found my class sometimes fail to retain certain mathematical methods or struggle to use what they know to figure out what they don’t.

Writing at the expected level KS2 - Evidence and step by step story aimed at NC (updated 2018)

This is a PowerPoint (that can be converted to a flip chart) that takes pupils through what is required to write a short story at the expected level and is a step by step guide. It is aimed at the criteria and framework and has produced some wonderful writing from my year 6 class. It shows the children where to include the punctuation, grammar and structure throughout a short story. There are 29 slides in total, each with a different focus which enables the children to include all of the skills they have learnt throughout the year. It is based on Eye of the Storm from the Literacy Shed (link included in the PPT). This is the opening of the story, written by a lower ability child (typed out with no corrections): As he stared into the sky, not worrying about his destruction from the mesmerising, raging storm, he gazed at the green lightening. His white, dragon like scarf waved in the sky. The black, silver lined coat shone in the sun’s omega light. The empty shell of a man thought that he could survive the storm. He kept his face hidden because he didn’t want to remember who he was. He turned his head slightly; he knew what he had to do. The ship he was travelling on had a unique energy that was pure electricity. It looked like a war ship, ready for battle. A war to save a dragon, a war to save the world, a war to save everyone. Terrifying memories of murder in his head. He had never found Martha…
