All resources (including starters) included, including a link to the abridged and original text online. Through debate, comprehension and smaller written tasks, this frameworks a strong written outcome-
great for y5-6. Assessed several times in some 'outstanding' lessons, this was the most successful series of lessons I've made in a long time, and the results were some fantastic written stories at the end!
Focusing on areas of weakness in my year group, I made a series of these presentations for the kids to prepare them for the reasoning papers.
The independent work was a few problems from previous SATs papers.
Hope they help!
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!
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!
One of the best trips of my school year, this! A booklet with specific directions to exhibits and clear questions to help the children access the artwork.
The pack comes with a parent letter template (editable) and a safety/behaviour briefing presentation.
Enjoy the trip!
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!
Spaced learning involves presenting the unit initially to the kids. Give them all the info. Then take a ten minute break (we usually play with clay or draw something). Then give the cloze quiz.\n Then another 10 minute break. Finally, get the class to label the planets with post-it notes, sticking as many information labels as they can remember.
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.
