Currently a year 6 teacher and subject lead. I like to plan for the smaller steps found pupil's gaps and wanted to share that work for those who also have similar processes.

Building Tension WAGOLL and planning sheet

(0)
This worked very effectively with my class. They analysed a WAGOLL from Frankie’s Exemplification. The planning has a teacher version and pupil version. The teacher version provides the steps to complete the plan. This planning template encourages pupils to think about the different features but the key part is, where they place each feature for impact - this is where their independence comes in. It worked when we did this back in October. Now, with lots of practice, the children know the key features of each text type and from the interim framework, they need to add in .

Year 6 Additional Time application recording sheet ON ONE PAGE

(0)
It is that time of the year where SLT/ Year 6 teachers need to make the application for pupils who need that additional/ addition with restriction time to do their best. This recording sheet, along with the guidance notes takes the stress away of collating that information. It can be given to teachers to fill in prior to making the online application on the GOV website - they will have all the information needed ON ONE PAGE. The guidance notes shows the outcome for each question so staff can think carefully beforehand, what their child needs and the evidence they have. The preparation and the outcome can all be recorded easily, ready to refer to later if needed. So whether it is your first time going through this process or you have done it before - this document can help. (I hope)
