This a full self setting spelling homework program. The idea is to hit those common exception words and high frequency words for EYFS and KS1. Moreover it is designed to be creative!!! Children choose one fun activity to complete a week and tick the grid when they have completed. I mark them each week but they choose the words and there is no need to reset the homework over a half term. It hits the common exception words from the new curriculum so is up to date. I have included baseline tests and a set of simple copy and paste activities to go in the editable grid.
Children really enjoying this at my school hope you do to!
The cost of bee bot mats is very high for most schools. But I have made a shape mat to use with bee bots and blue bee bots. The files are jpegs and should print 15x15 design on how far bee bots move. Simply laminate or even place under a perspex sheet to create a very cheap alternative to bee bot mats.
This is a handy document I produced for anyone going to moderation shortly. It includes all the key descriptors for maths, reading and writing on one document. Can be used for evidence for moderation or checking you have all the required evidence against the key descriptors.
This is a resource to have up in your classroom to highlight good learning behaviours. I normally get the children to write in the boxes what they think each means. I have a character in the middle of these statements that can point to each one in turn (focus that lesson).
Practical way of teaching capacity. Needs three bottles of liquid labelled with pretend fuel on each table. Children measure out liquid to make rocket fuel to go to the moon. Normally accompanied with a story of going to outer space.
Just a short presentation outlining subordinate clauses for KS1. I have used trains to help the children understand. In my lessons I use red, yellow and blue card for the children to write their own on.
This is a display I do every year. Every child fills one out of the things they can do. Then I create a pyramid display with the heading 'Success comes in cans not can'ts'. It's great to refer back to every now and again!
