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 unit that is based on the book by Renee Watson which I taught to my year 6 class. The unit contains 21 lessons but can be extended or condensed according to the writing ability or speed of your class. I have typed out chapter 1 and 2 onto the slides but you will need a copy of the book prior to starting this unit.
Each lesson begins with a grammar starter and many of the lessons contain differentiation and detailed notes.
The entire unit is on a PowerPoint including printable worksheets.
PERFECT FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH or for the end of year 6 (summer term) before they start secondary school.
The writing unit contains diary entries, recounts, writing and analysing poetry and writing recipes.

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.

An entire four lessons on algebra (solving equations) that I have 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 slide which can be printed off as a worksheet. 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. I have included the answers on a separate slide which you can use to get your class to mark their own work or just make the teacher’s marking quicker!

This is a lesson that I did with my year 6 class once we had revised missing angles around a whole turn and on a straight line. The lesson contains lots of differentiated opportunities for practice on whiteboards. The PowerPoint has printable worksheets for your LAs, MAs and HAs with the answers so that you can same some of your valuable teacher time!

These are three lessons that I did with my year 6 class.
Lesson 1: looks at finding the missing angle on a straight line and around a whole turn. On the PowerPoint, there is a printable worksheet which is differentiated for LA, MA and HA mathematicians. The answers are on the next slide. You could use these to get the class to self-mark and save your valuable teacher time!
Lesson 2: revises learning from day before then moves onto finding the missing angles in triangles. My class had a basic knowledge of the features of an equilateral and isosceles prior to this but the lesson offers a brief opportunity to revise the features. On the PowerPoint, there is a printable worksheet which is differentiated for LA, MA and HA mathematicians. The answers are on the next slide.
Lesson 3: this is a reasoning lesson during which I sent out my LAs to work with my TA on MA work from day before. The lesson looks at opposite angles and finding missing angles in diagrams that contain triangles. There is a Word document worksheet for MAs and HAs.

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 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.

Day 1 : revises names of shapes, regular and irregular shapes, parallel and perpendicular lines, conventional markings for parallel sides and equal angles and types of angles. The worksheet is differentiated 3 ways for LA, MA and HA.
Day 2: properties of equilateral, right angle, isosceles and scalene triangles. The worksheet is differentiated 3 ways for LA, MA and HA.

Four lessons. All with practice questions for the children to complete on their whiteboards with the answers on the next slide so that the teacher can quickly check. Independent work is differentiated 3 ways. Answers for independent work provided so you can get your class to mark their work and save valuable teacher time!
Lesson 1: dividing numbers with a decimal remainder.
Lesson 2: dividing numbers with a decimal and fraction remainder.
Lesson 3: division word problems
Lesson 4: decimal word problems involving all four operations

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.

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 complete lesson that I gave to my year 6 class on long multiplication as revision a lesson we did in the run up to the SATs ; it includes differentiated practice questions which can be done on whiteboards (with answers on a separate slide), a (3 way differentiated) worksheet slide which you can print off or get your class to work from the board and choose their own level. The hardest level of differentiation is multi-step word problems involving all four operations for my very high attainers.
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 is one I taught to my year 6 class. The teaching covers a range of properties of 2D shapes. Regular or irregular, parallel and perpendicular lines, types of angles (reflex, acute, right angle or obtuse), names of shapes.
The lesson finishes with the class filling out a table identifying features of 2D shapes mentioned in the main teaching. These are differentiated for LA, MA and HA.

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 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 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 lesson on translating shapes along the x-axis and y-axis in the four quadrants which I did with my year 6 class. The lesson includes a mental maths starter, chances for discussion of the method and teacher modelling, differentiated practice questions which can be completed on laminated four quadrant grids and worksheets that are differentiated for LA, MA and HA. I would print and laminate the four quadrant grid for this lesson and for future lessons.
