I'm a tired teacher just like you; fighting to balance the importance of my own life with the fun and high level of education I want to give my students. I hope these resources save you time so you can focus on the important things in life.

'Giraffes Can't Dance' Assembly Script

(0)
A KS1 assembly retelling the story of ‘Giraffes Can’t Dance’ by Giles Andreae. One pupil acts as the narrator (thouh this can easily by edited to add more narrators), then there are 6 other speaking parts. Every other child will wear an animal mask and perform in a short dance. The assembly includes full script, ideas to encourage audience participation and links to 6 songs and actions. I also used these dances to inform my PE lessons, the children loved this. This is a FUN assembly for an active class and welcome break to memorizing lines. Enjoy :)

NQT is hard enough without the stress of trying to remember how to meet teaching standards. This is my document, hopefully it will help give you ideas you can demonstrate this in your school experience. Top tip: don’t be afraid to tell colleagues which standards you’re struggling for evidence in before reviews or observations. Really hope this saves you some time :)

Year 2 Reading and Writing Targets

(0)
Simple y2 targets, I send these home with parents at the start of the year and also circle two from each column during parent's evenings for parents to work on at home. I stick a copy of each at the from of my children's books at the start of the year so they know my expectations for them by the end. In order to track their targets we highlight each box as s the achieve it, you can also stick a star on it and date it each time you are aware the target has been achieved. This has made my life so much easier!
