Notebook, hide-the-verbs activity and worksheet included.
My year one class loved this lesson - I hid the bossy verbs around the playground and the children had to find them all and do exactly as Little Miss Bossy instructs! We came back into the classroom and they thought of their own , recording on the worksheet, then came up with bossy verb sentences in talk partners.
This led very nicely onto our work writing instructions about making Pumpkin Soup (eg. Cut up the pumpkin; boil the soup; blend the soup etc).
Worksheet ideal for KS1 work on seasons and tree types. Children can colour/draw the leaves on deciduous trees through the seasons, and then draw/colour the leaves on an evergreen tree. They then have the opportunity to explain how evergreen trees are different to deciduous trees.
Four powerpoint presentations to help support children in phase 6 phonics. This set of presentations moves children onto looking at the long and short vowel sounds, and how we can use these to help us tell when to use the double consonant in past tense spellings (eg. hop goes to hopped, hope goes to hoped).
Four powerpoints that focus on teaching children about the past tense for phase 6 phonics. Children sat on carpet with whiteboards and composed their sentences in pairs or on their own, then went on to do some follow up work in their phonics books.
Two differentiated worksheets on classifying omnivores, herbivores and carnivores.
Also included class activity - pictures to be laminated/printed and stuck up around forest school area/playground/classroom. Children must go and read what the different animals eat and record whether they are omnivore, herbivore or carnivore on their table worksheet. Worked well with mixed ability pairs!
Presentation to support Year 2 children in writing a recount about their Christmas Holidays - focusing on the inclusion of conjuctions, time connectives and expanded noun phrases. Includes a model.
PDF and editable version included.
Worksheet storyboard for the story of Noah’s Ark with missing words and a word bank to choose from. Children can also draw in pictures of the story to match the captions underneath.
Good evidence for demonstrating children’s understanding of the Bible story. Worked well with my early year 2 class.
A hand illustrated activity booklet for children at Christmas. Includes spot the difference, decorate a reindeer, write a letter to Santa, worsearch, code word puzzle, ‘I am thankful for…’ worksheet and lots of pages to decorate and colour!
Three differentiated worksheets encouraging children to think about what thoughts are ‘growth mindset’ thoughts and which are not. The easy activity involves the children thinking of things they can already do and what they want to learn how to do, the middle activity involves cutting and sticking thoughts in the right bubbles, and the harder activity involves children writing down some ‘growth mindset’ thoughts and some negative thoughts.
It was a great PSHE lesson that sparked lots of discussion!

Three worksheets to support learning in year one on Christian symbols at Christmas. Most worksheets involve matching or filling in missing words, with higher sheet giving children opportunity to explain the significance of two of the symbols.
Lesson worked well, we also had the symbols stuck on the walls around the room for children to spot and discuss in talk partners. They also matched them to the Christmas story as we read it through.
Three worksheets to help children to recognise and understand objects Christians use for worship (eg. Bible, instruments). Harder task relies on children being able to write sentences about what the objects are and how Christians use them. Middle task asks children to label objects for worship and write about how Christian use them. The lower ability task is a sorting activity where children choose which objects Christians might use and what they wouldn’t.

A brilliant teamwork based DT lesson/afternoon for Year 2+. Powerpoint to lead lesson (inc. youtube video link) with design worksheet also attached.
Learning objective: to design and create a model of a bridge.
In lesson children were encouraged to design a bridge individually, then get into groups with big A2 sheets bring their ideas together into one design for makeable model. They then presented ideas back to the class. Finally they had a go at constructing their bridges out of junk modelling materials and rolled up newspapers. We tested them at the end and rated them on appearance and durability!
Children LOVED lesson and pushed their skills in teamwork, problem solving, design and fair testing.
