This is a great resource that I have used for years. I use it to check that children are on the correct book band. These books are from reading schemes such as Bug Club and Collins Big Cat. They do have the old national curriculum levels on them but book bands have not changed since the change of curriculum so still relevant now. I then track my children on a book band tracker which I have attached to this bundle too.
This bundle includes progression of skills to support children with counting and recognising patterns in numbers. I have also included a presentation on how to create provision for maths in the early years too.
Lots of ideas on how to support children with aspects of Phase 1 indoor and outdoors and rhymes too! I have also added an overview sheet to do an audit of opportunities for this area.
Blank TASC wheel to support children to use all thinking skills when discussing a question or new topic.
These are used to ensure children can read the range of words across the KS1 curriculum. Year 2 assessments are different each term and you can give a score for each area of the curriculum to identify strengths and weaknesses. I have also created a spelling assessment along the same lines. Please see the other bundle for this.
These activities have been created and are dated in the order they are taught. Great sheets for EAL children so that they understand what they are trying to spell.
I created these texts to support children when introducing them to guided reading. They are texts based around book bands pink - blue. I would share these in a group - maybe give them a page each or create mini booklets and then after the guided session would display these books/ posters in the provision to encourage independent reading. There are books on space, pets, winter and adding up. Please use this template also to create your own!!
Termly word reading assessment which covers all the different words children should be able to read by the end of Year 2. I did these assessments on a termly basis and scored each area to show strengths and next teaching points across the cohort. Also great to show impact on reading interventions that you may do!
These are termly spelling assessments that cover the whole curriculum. You can score each area to see strengths and weaknesses for each child and for the whole class. This is a really informative assessment and I made these after searching for a scheme that produced a straight forward assessment and couldn't find it!
2 week unit including text, overview of learning objectives, 2 weeks of planning and self assessment for children. Also included powerpoints for other teaching points and activities related to this and support documents and word mats.
I have created questions to support children in every area of the basic provision from role play to water play, outdoors to the reading corner. These are based on Blooms Questions so support children with higher order thinking.
These assessments cover all areas of the spelling curriculum in Year 1. It also has a scoring system so you can compare progress from one term to the next and also identify the next steps in the teaching of spelling with your class.
A great termly resource that covers all areas of the spelling curriculum in year 2. It identifies strengths and areas to develop within your cohort and is also a good tool to show progress in this area.
