Comparing Features of India and the UK

(0)
A carroll diagram to compare human and physical features of India and the UK. Included are a selection of images for both the UK and India for children to cut out and stick into the correct part of the worksheet.
Inventions Game

Inventions Game

(4)
I used this 'top trump' presentation to model how to make a top trump card for a victorian invention. I provided factsheets for around 20 different inventions and blank versions of the card. The children had to rate their invention out of 10 for impact it had on daily life, accessibility a working class victorian had to it, the year it was made (the earlier the better), do we use it now and ingenuity of the design. The children made one each and we played as a class.
Year 3 PSHE Ground Rules

Year 3 PSHE Ground Rules

(0)
Use for the beginning of new topics and the start of each PSHE lesson. It runs through the ground rules regarding what is expected of behaviour and attitude in these sessions.
Year 3 Calculating Perimeter

Year 3 Calculating Perimeter

(1)
A lesson designed to calculate the perimeter of simple 2D shapes. The lesson is based on finding the perimeter of rectangles and squares. There is an element of ruler skills for measuring sides of rectangles. Finally, there is a ‘Chilli Challenge’ that can be supplemented with work that you feel suits the needs of your class based on AfL. I usually do fluency practice with children working towards the expected standard, varied fluency with children working at the expected standard and ensure my greater depth children are doing problem solving.

Counting to 20

Great worksheet to help children learn the numbers to 20. Should be supported by number lines as a visual aid.
Making Musical Instruments

Making Musical Instruments

(0)
As part of a 'carnival' themed creative arts week we made our own musical instruments. We based them on sounds from Samba. The children needed to bring in recyclable materials in order to make them and it took a full day! However, the results were excellent!
Class Dojo Reward Resources

Class Dojo Reward Resources

(0)
Class Dojo is a free reward scheme based on points that children love! They can create their own monster character. I have created some certificates that my 'Top Monsters' receive at the end of each week. I have also created a wall chart to record daily whole class points totals and the weekly top monsters. There is also a label for a box of 'Dojo Tokens'. These can be handed out if you are not currently on the dojo site or app and the children can cash them in later. A fantastic behaviour management resource!
Talk Partner Peer Assessment

Talk Partner Peer Assessment

(1)
Every week the children in my class are paired with a different talk partner. At the end of the week I give everyone this sheet to assess how effective they thought their talk partner was. It is excellent to encourage the children to work better in partners and think about the quality of their dialogue and interaction.
Chocolate Themed Enterprise Week

Chocolate Themed Enterprise Week

(2)
A fantastic resource for a full week - encouraging children to think like entrepreneurs! The task is to create a brand new box of chocolates. From designing the chocolates and making the packaging, to writing a persuasive speech and presenting their products to the class! It gets the children to think about costing their chocolates - market research and conducting questionnaires. The children work in groups in the style of 'The Apprentice'.
Year 3 PSHE Smoking

Year 3 PSHE Smoking

(0)
A lesson all about the harmful affects of smoking. The lesson begins with children deciding if statements about smoking are true or false. There are also facts and images about what is in cigarettes and how smoking affects your body. The lesson provides plenty of scope for discussion with extra discussion questions at the end.
The Apprentice Maths Week

The Apprentice Maths Week

(0)
Fantastic resource that I use at the end of the year for a weeks worth of maths lessons. It is based on an Apprentice style buying/selling activity. It promotes teamwork and leadership skills but all uses core maths and organisational skills. The 'whole lesson' notebook file explains each step of the process. I found it useful to show the class an episode of 'Young Apprentice' where they complete a similar task.
Visual Lesson Plan for SEN

Visual Lesson Plan for SEN

(0)
This is a great sheet that can be used to break down lessons into easy to manage chunks. By writing down what is expected First, Next, Then, After and Last with short timings, children find lessons much easier to manage and can therefore achieve more. I have also included a reward section. This could be changed but is useful for children who find it particularly difficult to take part in a whole lesson.
Number bonds to 10 and 20 game

Number bonds to 10 and 20 game

(0)
Each set of cards comes in yellow and orange. The idea is to pick one yellow card and then find its matching number bond. This is mainly a KS1 activity. However, I did use it with a year 4 class as a refresher activity and they loved it!
Journey Down The Nile - ppt

Journey Down The Nile - ppt

(1)
I used this for a music lesson, play the slide (the boat moves after about 5secs). assign groups different sections (eg pyramids, pharaoh etc) they compose a piece of music for that section and as the boat passes each group plays in turn, fading in and fading out.
Investors in Pupils Target Progress Sheet

Investors in Pupils Target Progress Sheet

(0)
A great sheet where each child chooses a target relating to the 5 areas of Investors in Pupils (classroom management, induction, behaviour, attendance, learning). Each week they discuss their target with a buddy and decide if they have achieved it.
