A quick resource, about 30 mins, to help the children understand how to use the text when answering questions in a reading test. Texts are linked in the presentation. I use this each week, changing the text and the questions. Please leave feedback and I will respond!

Focusing on self-improvement related to PSHE, this lesson was a big hit among the children in year 6. It draws upon a philosophical story called the Devil’s Gambit, relating to addiction, which I’ve adapted into a tale about bad habits. Note on the resources are in the Powerpoint presentation .

Free Will vs Determinism: Philosophy debate

Using theoretical ideas about free will and determinism, the children get to discuss the big stuff here, applying the free will/determinism concept to their own lives. A great fun lesson which the upper KS2 kids loved!

8 different texts with main text and LA (lower ability) differentiated texts. These have been fantastic in boosting up my class' SATs reading scores. If this receives good reviews, many more will be uploaded!

Great resources in bite-size pieces for help with reading. Great for carousels, English lessons or time-fillers!

Year round school: a good idea? Presentation detailing facts and stats and a format for a class debate. Great fun time filler or debate lesson!

A full day’s resources for the first day back, including informal assessment opportunities for writing, maths, speaking and reading: Morning starter (while children are registered): grammar, using an image to write sentences and identify word classes; Golden rules children decide as a class the rules for the year; Recount of holiday: writing assessment task; Maths treasure hunt which requires a little prep to hide all the tasks about the classroom/playground! Selfie biography task children get the chance to set goals and write about themselves. Reading task perhaps to precede a quiet reading time at the end of the day.
Afternoon of history and art to end the year

Afternoon of history and art to end the year

A fantastic spoken lesson leading into art and (potentially) written reflection after! First part of the lesson is a partner-talk then whole class discussion on the year: what has been the highlights? What has stood out? Scribe it all down then start the slideshow. Using images from the past such as cave painting, the Bayeux tapestry and Japanese woodblock art, the class discuss great works of art and historical artifacts before looking at the artwork of Keith Haring. Using his trademark style, the children then make their own large Bayeux tapestry posters depicting their year.
