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 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.

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.

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 reading unit that I did with my year 6 class over the course of a half term. We would roughly do a lesson in the books every other day and read a chapter a day. Most of the lessons are differentiated for LA, MA and HA.

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.

-finding equivalent fractions
-adding and subtracting fractions
-square numbers
-multiplying and dividing by 10,100 and 1000
-formal written method of multiplication
-multiplying decimals
-formal written method of division
-formal written method of subtraction
-multiplication fact questions
-simplifying fractions

-converting units of measurement
And more!

This is a non-fiction writing unit that I completed with my year 6 class based on the book ‘The Hidden Forest’ by Jeannie Baker. 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!
Each lesson begins with a grammar starter. The lessons explore a range of grammatical techniques embedded into the lesson which your class can use in their writing, perfectly preparing your class to write their own non-chronological reports about sea kelp.
The unit finishes off with a big write that should get edited and published.

This is a unit of lessons that I did with my class in whole class guided reading lessons involving lots of SATs skills (e.g. the dreaded 3 mark questions!).
Lessons are differentiated for LA, MA and HA and use the Viper skills. I usually encourage my class to circle the VIPER skills they think they were using that lesson.
I took about three-four weeks to teach this. I had two lessons in my books each week and spent the other lessons reading the chapters which are sometimes quite long. It was a very good text to expose my class to more complicated language and prepare them so potentially a complicated SATs text.

This is a reading comprehension that I gave my year 6 class for homework based on the first part of chapter 1 of the novel ‘Little Women’. It inludes the text, questions and answers. It was also part of my efforts to encourage my class to read the actual book! The comprehension has 9 questions that are suitable for your MA and HA children. The questions are a mixture of retrieval and inference. Some questions ask the children to give their opinion and base their answers with evidence from the text.

I gave this as reading homework to my year 6 class for three weeks -it is three comprehensions on chapter 1,2 and 3 of the book. The main reason was to encourage them to read the book (The Explorer) which I have in our class reading corner. The questions involved a variety of the reading skills that come up in SATs papers so good practise! I have included the answers for each question at the bottom of the page to make marking quicker. I have also included the text.

This is an entire lesson on long algebra which I did with my year 6 class on solving two step equations. 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 is a lesson that I used to teach my year 6 class about converting between fraction, decimal and percentage equivalents . The lesson starts off with a starter on multiplying and dividing by 100. It then offers opportunities for teacher modelling. Next, there are slides with differentiated practice questions for the class to do on their whiteboards. The answers are on the next slides so that you can quickly check their work. On the penultimate slide, there is the Learning Objective and a challenge to complete once they’ve finished their work. Worksheets are differentiated for LAs, MAs, HAs and HHAs. I have included the answers for worksheets too to make teacher marking easier or for you to give to your class to mark their own work!

These are two lessons that I did with my year 6 class on the build to the Holocaust and about the genocide itself. The first lessons looks at discrimination, anti-semitism and the laws that Nazis introduced to restrict the rights of Jewish people. It ends with pupils writing a reflective paragraph on what we can learn from this.
The second lesson looks at what happened in the concentration camps and at different memorials that have been designed to commemorate the millions of deaths. The children then design their own memorial to the murdered victims of the Nazis.

This is a lesson that I gave my year 6 class about converting from the 12 hour and 24 hour time. Please look at the notes at the bottom of the slides.
The lesson begins with lots of opportunity to model and discuss converting. Then there are differentiated practice questions with answers on the next slides for the class to practise on their whiteboards.
There is a slide with differentiated questions for independent work which can be printed off or you can get your class to work from the board to save paper! While the children are working independently, I always display the LO slide with the challenge question so that any children who finish early can have an extra challenge.
I have also included the answers on a slide so you can quickly mark or get the class to mark their own work and save your valuable teacher time!
Print out the blank clock faces for your unconfident time-tellers.

This is a week’s worth of lessons (5 lessons) based on 3 texts/extracts. It contains main teaching sessions and worksheets that are differentiated . Each worksheet and lesson makes the reading skill they are practising quite explicit.
Lesson 1: Looks at a text about Serena Williams and revising looking at the meaning and impact of words on the reader
Lesson 2: This lesson looks at the same text on Serena Williams but this time focuses on the skill of summary
Lesson 3: This lesson also uses the text on Serena Williams and the class have to infer her personality traits using evidence from the text. Practise answering a 3 mark question
Lesson 4: This lesson allows them to read a new text/extract and practise answering a 3 mark question about the character’s personality
Lesson 5: This lesson involves a third text/extract from a Robert Louis Stevenson novel and the children must give their impressions of the house in a 3 mark question.

This is a non-fiction reading comprehension that I gave my year 6 class for homework based on the famous education activist Marcus Rashford. 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.

These are reading comprehensions which I gave my year 6 class with the answers. The questions are about chapters 1 and 2. Firstly, to encourage them to read the actual book which we have in our class library. Also to practise retrieval, inference, explanation and justifying their opinions with evidence from the text questions, all geared towards the SATs. The answers are at the end of the document.

These are 4 lessons that I did with my year 6 class using chapter 1,2 and 3 of The Secret Garden; this book has just the right amount of complex vocabulary to prepare your class for a potentially challenging text in the SATs. My class were finding answering the 3 mark questions particularly challenging.
The first lesson involves reading chapter (you don’t have to finish it) and discussing Mary Lennox’s chilhood. We looked at the technique for answering 3 mark questions using Point, Evidence and Explain to answer a 3 mark question about her childhood.
In the second lesson, we finished chapter 1 and read some of 2. We looked at answering the tricky ‘Yes’ ‘No’ ‘Maybe’ questions in the SATs where the children must properly explain and give their opinions to back up their choice.
The third lesson is also based on chapter 2 and involves less teacher input and more questions involving skills they have learnt. It has a separate group of retrieval questions for your lower readers.
The final lesson is on ‘impressions’ that certain words from chapter 3 can give the reader .
Lesson 4 and 5 involve explanation to justify inferences and another ‘yes’ ‘no’ ‘maybe’ questions about Archibald Craven’s garden.

This is a lesson that completed with my year 6 class to revise the features of 3D shapes. I would highly recommend you have a box of actual 3D shapes for this lesson as seeing the actual 3D objects will really secure their knowledge.
I have a worksheet inolving identifying the featyres that I got my class to complete in pairs using the 3D shapes.

This is a complete lesson that I gave to my year 6 class on rounding decimal numbers with up to 3 decimal places to the nearest whole, tenth and hundredth; 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.

This lesson begins with opportunities to discuss as a class how you would add/subtract 10, 100 and 1000 from a number without using the formal written method. It then has differentiated practice questions and the answers for your class to complete on their whiteboards. One penultimate slide can be printed off as a worksheet and has 3 levels (Blue for LA, Orange for MA and red for HA). The last slide is the answers to these questions for you to use or for you to get your class to self mark and save you some time!
While the class are working independently, I always display the third last slide that has the Learning Objective on it and two challenge questions for children to complete if they finish early and need an extra push.
