A nice easy way of children reviewing their learning. Suitable for the end of a lesson or half term. Two versions, one to encourage feedback on how their teacher can help them.
Target setting booklets

Target setting booklets

(0)
I always start units of work with a booklet that says what we're learning about, a space for setting targets, space to review learning, opportunity for an effort level, keywords for the topic. Please feel free to adapt for your own use. I bookend them with two stars and a wish so that exercise books end up with 'chapters', which helps me keep my books organised. Please leave a review.

Geography Introduction - what is Geography (human and physical)

(0)
An introduction to Geography for Year 7 - students are introduced to the concept of human and physical geography, using photos around our school (you could substitute your own). Students then divide a page in half and draw examples of human and physical geography. A nice early lesson with a pleasing outcome.

Extended writing - assessment on the formation of stacks and stumps

The new orders for Geography state 'communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.' Therefore I have been giving extended questions this year; this is one of them. This followed several lessons on; erosion and weathering, coastal features (including finding on an OS map) and formation of stacks & stumps (including making them out of playdoh to make movies!). Planning sheet and success criteria included.

Updated crib Sheets to enable students to produce outstanding maps, graphs and fieldsketches. A 10/10 sheet to ensure they remember title, key etc. A useful reminder for students and another method for ensuring your lesson has success criteria!
