I am a primary school teacher with over 10 years of classroom teaching experience. Having taught every year group across Key Stage 2 (Year 3 to Year 6). This experience has given me a good understanding of the curriculum needs across this key stage and I have amassed a variety of resources to support and share with the TES community online. Additionally, I have held a number of subject lead positions; R.E.; School Council Co-ordinator; SEND champion; Music lead; IT lead and currently PSHE lead.

The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish by Neil Gaiman for Year 3

(0)
When a boy swaps his dad for two goldfish he does not really think through the consequences! After all, he is not the only person who can swap stuff. When the boy is told by his mother that he has to get his father back it is not so easily done. This is a bank of resources to support the teaching and learning for the book: The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish by Neil Gaiman for Year 3, but I have also used it with Year 4 by adapting the resources and objectives to include adverbials and fronted adverbials. This is a two-week plus sequence of materials and it includes PPTs, differentiated worksheets and supporting materials. This sequence of resources will get the children to read and discuss the story, identifying the different characters and their voices. The resources also identify the features and conventions of written dialogue and use of speech marks (inverted commas), which children will draw upon to write their own missing scenes from the book. The children consider the story from the perspective of Dad and write a diary entry in role. The sequences of resources culminates in children using the cliffhanger at the end of the book to write their own sequel using the structure of the original story to plan and write their own. There is no planning attached as it is largely drawn from the Literacy Company planning. The following objectives are covered: To write multi-clause sentences using because as a conjunction To understand the conventions of dialogue To punctuate direct speech To use apostrophes for possession and contraction To write a missing scene To write a diary entry To re-tell a story orally To plan a story based on the original plot To write the opening of a story To write the middle part of a story To write the ending of a story To evaluate, edit and improve my writing

Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo Year 4

(0)
In fifth-century Denmark, a murderous monster stalks the night, and only the great prince of the Geats has the strength and courage to defeat him. This ancient Anglo-Saxon tale is brilliantly retold by Micheal Morpurgo and has the children enchanted. I’ve used this text and resources with Year 4 several times and then are tried and tested winners at getting even the most reluctant of pupils to do some creative writing. The following bundle of resources is aimed at supporting the teaching and learning of the text: Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo. There are appropriately 14 sessions worth of materials that give pupils the opportunity to practise and repeat skills through short writing opportunities. This includes PPT’s, differentiated worksheets and supporting materials. There is no planning attached as it is largely drawn from the Literacy Company planning. The following objectives are covered: Write predictions about a character and text Write a character description Using expanded noun and prepositional phrases to describe a monster. Describe the beast and his crimes in two paragraphs. Write a character profile about Beowulf. Identify adverbial phrases and use fronted adverbials in sentences Write an effective and detailed character description Image what it was like to be one of Beowulf’s soldiers. Complete time-line of events using conjunctions and adverbial phrases. Plan and discuss 3 paragraphs Retell the story of Beowulf Re-draft a retelling of Beowulf Plan and draft own Beowulf adventure Edit and re-draft own Beowulf story

The Crown Jewels - Report Writing KS2 - 'My Friend Walter' by Michael Morpurgo

(0)
The children are set the task of writing a report about the Crown Jewels, as newly appointed researchers and writers for Newsround in the wake of the theft of the Orb from the Crown Jewels and in a moment of national crisis. They need to compare the similarities and difference of the Crown Jewels, as if writing for a younger audience e.g. infants. This was planned for a Year 4 class with a high percentage of SEND children in a mainstream setting working significantly below the expected standard for Year 4. However, the lesson has enough of a challenge to engage the higher attaining pupils and could easily be adapted for an older or younger year group. The presentation and lesson can be a stand alone lesson, and was made to accompany the book ‘My Friend Walter’ by Michael Morpurgo, but the main focus is writing a report about the Crown Jewels. So, can easily be adapted without reference to the text. However, if you would like to refer to the text, in chapter 7, we discover the mischievous old ghost (Sir Walter) sets about restoring the family’s fortune, while all the time Bess has to try to keep the presence of a ghost in the house a secret. Sir Walter comes up with his own scheme to steal the orb from the Crown Jewels to help raise money for the farm. The lesson includes a PPT: My Friend Walter Chapter 7 Report (Fully animated with transition) 3 sheet for differentiated tasks. Higher Attainers - a picture of the Crown Jewels for reference (expectation to write directly into books and compare two objects) Middle Attainers - worksheet with two columns: Similarities and Difference Lower Attainers - worksheet with two columns: writing frame, two columns: Similarities and Difference, plus word bank with key vocabulary. **Lesson plan ** **Exemplar of a finished report. **

Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations PPT KS2

This presentation is aimed at providing an input for the children, before writing cards, wishing Her Majesty well for her Platinum Jubilee. It begins by giving the children the historical context about who the Queen is and her significance today as the living national symbol of the State. This bundle includes: PPT (Fulling animated with transition slides) Card template (Publisher) Formal letter of explanation to the Queen Explanation slip for parents and carers This PTT was initially made for a group of children participating in the Junior Duke Award scheme, which is the primary school version of The Duke Edinburgh Award. Their challenge was to walk to somewhere nearby ‘for a reason’, so with this in mind the children were asked to locate a nearby post box and post a card to the Queen with parental supervision.

Prime Numbers PPT KS2 Year 5/6/7

(0)
This PPT and worksheet: Sieve of Eratosthenes was designed to help lower attaining Year 5 pupils learn about prime numbers. The activity within the presentation are suitable for a number of age rangers from upper Key Stage 2 to Year 7 and will help children identify prime number to 100. Prime numbers are special numbers, greater than 1, that have exactly two factors, themselves and 1. In this PPT the children are introduced to prime numbers with the Sieve of Eratosthenes in a scene using the characters from Transformers to unlock the prime numbers to 100 before it is too late… I’ve used this resource with both Year 5 and Year 6 students and you can make this exercise more interesting by asking them to colour in the prime numbers within a specific time limit.
