I am an experienced year 6 teacher selling Maths, English, Science and History resources for teachers looking for high-quality, cheap resources to save their valuable time.

This is a writing sequence that I did in the Autumn Term (7-8 weeks) with my year 6 class. The slides include lots of printable worksheets, grammar starters, word banks and sentence starters for your Lower Attaining children.
The sequence includes: -poetry writing
-diary entry
-role play/drama lesson
-letter writing
-a lesson on fronted adverbials
-lessons on setting description
-a lesson on direct speech
-planning lessons for the Big Write
-Shared Writing lessons
I taught this sequence in conjunction with the YouTube video of the book and 16 copies of the physical book. I would definitely give your class some background knowledge on refugees and why people are sometimes forced to leave their home country.

This is an entire 2 lessons on working out the missing angles on a straight line, around a whole turn and lesson 2 is about finding missing angles in triangles with the prior learning. The lesson includes lots of differentiated practice questions and a printable differentiated worksheet for independent work at the end. The answers are on the last slide.
Blue = LA
Orange = MA
Red = HA

This is a reading comprehension about the impact that our use of plastic has on the planet. I gave it to my year 6 class that involves inference, retrieval, basing opinions on the text, explanation and more SATs style skills. The reading comprehension could definitely be given to a year 5 or year 7 and 8 class. The answers are included at the end.

This is an entire lesson on converting metric units of length, mass and capacity that I did with my year 6 class after a lesson on just conversion.
There are lots of differentiated practice questions to complete on the whiteboards (with answers on next slide to quickly check).
There is a slide with the Learning Objective and a challenge question which I display while they’re completing independent work.
I have included a slide which has work for LA, MA and HA and can be printed off or the class can choose their level from the board (save paper).
I have included the answers on the last slides so that you can mark quickly or get the class to mark their own work!
I have also included practice SATs style questions to stick in the books as a challenge when marking.

This is a creative writing unit that I completed with my year 6 class based on the book by Nicola Davies. It is roughly 20 lessons but this could be condensed or extended. All on PowerPoint and so easy to follow. Minimum planning and resourcing required! I have included a scanned copy of the book.
Each lesson begins with a grammar starter. The lessons explore a range of figurative language, perfectly preparing your class to write their own creative versions of this marvellous book.
The unit finishes off with a big write that should get edited and published.

Very easy art lesson that will require no planning!
I did this lesson with my year 6 class in 1 afternoon. It gives a brief history of David, his interests and inspirations. The lesson is a very easy to follow step-by-step break down of how to paint a David Hockney landscape. The lesson encourages the children to experiment with colour and perspective. My class produced some really nice pieces by the end -one of which I have used as the example on the slide.

This is a unit of 15 lessons, which can be condensed or extended depending on the confidence of the class, that is based on the amazing book ‘Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality’ by David Roberts. I planned and resourced this unit for my Year 6 class. My class absolutely loved learning about the Suffragettes -especially as extreme activism has been in the news so much recently! You will need to buy a copy of the book.
The unit consists of two ‘big writes’. A formal letter to a Prime Minister and a short story/recount about the day that the Suffragettes interrupted a parliamentary meeting. The lessons that lead up to the ‘big writes’ all teach the class the necessary grammatical elements and writing features that they can include in their writing.
Each lesson has a grammar starter and grammar imbedded into it for SATs revision. Many of the lessons have differentiation for your lower attaining writers and suggestions for how to challenge your more confident writers.
I have included reading comprehensions which can be completed in your Reading lessons or for homework if you don’t have time to get through all the reading in class.
This unit can be continued after with a biography about Emmeline Pankhurst or Millicent Fawcett.

Please ignore the second preview image, it was distorted the Word document.
This is a non-fiction reading comprehension that I gave my year 6 class for homework based on the famous education activist Malala Yousafzai. It inludes the text, questions and answers. The comprehension has 9 questions that are suitable for your LA, MA and HA children. The questions involve a mixture of skills such as retrieval, inference, explanation and vocabulary skills.

This is a lesson I did with my year 6 class on finding equivalent fractions. There are lots of differentiated practice questions with the answers of the next slide. For independent work, there is a differentiated slide which can be printed as a worksheet or the pupils can work from the board (if you want to save paper!). While they are completing their independent work, you can display the slide with the challenge on it which they can complete when they’ve finished.
I have included the answers at the end to save teacher time -why not get your class to mark their own work!

This is a Powerpoint that contains 12 complete lessons that could be taught straight away because there are pictures of the play on the slides. These lessons include differentiation (sentence starters for LAs and grammatical challenges for your HA writers). These were lessons that I made for my class during lockdown but can definitely be used in class and adapted to contain more drama activities. They really enjoyed this unit of work which included writing a formal letter, informal diary entries, play script writing, work on direct speech punctuation, descriptive writing and some role play.
I will uploade the next batch of lessons when I finish teaching them.

An entire lesson on finding the radius and diameter of circles used to teach my year 6 class. The lesson has chances for the teacher to discuss and model the method, differentiated practice slides and a final three slides which can be printed off as a worksheets, starting with LA, then MA and HA. Finally, I have included challenge questions which can be displayed while the children are working independently and that they can complete when they have finished.

This is a lesson that I did with my year 6 class about the process of fossilisation (how fossils are formed) and how they are evidence towards species evolving and changing to adapt to their environment. The worksheet is differentiated for LA and another worksheet for MA and HA that involves explaining why fossils are so important and to link to evolution.

This is a complete lesson that I gave to my year 6 class on ordering and comparing decimal numbers with up to 3 decimal places; it includes differentiated practice questions which can be done on whiteboards (with answers on a separate slide), a (differentiated) worksheet slide which you can print off or get your class to work from the board and choose their own level. The lesson also includes a slide with the answers to save our valuable teacher time. Why not get your class to self-assess at the end of the lesson?
The lesson is differentiated three ways for lower attaining, middle attaining and higher. I gave it to my year 6 class.

This is an entire lesson on long division which I did with my year 6 class. The lesson includes lots of differentiated practice questions and a printable differentiated worksheet for independent work at the end. The answers are on the last slide. Challenge question which they can complete after finishing independent work.

This lesson includes a PowerPoint that has differentiated practice questions and the answers. The practice questions are multi-step word problems involving multiplication, addition, subtraction and one with multiplication of decimals (money context) and working out the change.
The worksheets are differentiated for HA, MA and LA with questions similar to those of the slides.

I completed these lessons with my year 6 class to practise estimating the size of angles, then measuring their actual size using a protractor. The worksheet for this lesson is differentiated for LA, MA and HA.
The second lesson moves onto the class drawing angles using protractors.

This is an entire lesson on converting metric units of length that I did with my year 6 class.
There is a starter on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to prepare them for the lesson.
There are opportunities to discuss which units of measurement they would use to measure certain items and to deepen their understanding of units of measurement (even better if this can be done alongside physical objects).
There are lots of differentiated practice questions to complete on the whiteboards.
There is a slide with the Learning Objective and a challenge question which I display while they’re completing independent work.

I have also included practice SATs style questions to stick in the books as a challenge when marking.

This is a full lesson for a year 6 class that involves practising answering division word problems in which you have to interpret the remainder. This should be done after your class have revised using the formal written method of division. There is a PowerPoint included with plenty of practise questions for you to get your class to discuss in talkl partners. The worksheets are diferentiated 3 ways for lower, middle and higher attainers in Maths.

Here are 100 mental maths starters which I used for my year 6 class. Each slide also has the answers so you can quickly check them. These are all geared towards the Arithmetic paper in the SATs and helping your class become fluent in these skills.

This is a lesson that I did with my year 6 class about the famous scientist Carl Linnaeus.
-The lesson begins by asking why sorting and grouping is so important.
-It gives background information on Linnaeus and his fascination with classifying living things and why he was so interested in doing this.
-It explains why his classification method was so necessary and important.
-It explains his two-word Latin classifying method of giving every living thing a GENUS and a SPECIES (two-part Latin name) based on its characteristics
-It explains that he documented all his findings in his book SYSTEMA NATURA
The children write a diary entry that describes Linnaeus’ classification method. There are sentence starters for them to use. I planned this lesson to also use as potential writing moderation evidence hence the focus on writing.
