2D Shape Bingo Game

(4)
This is a really simple game for KS1 or Lower KS2 children. You can use your own descriptions of shape properties and all the children have to do is work out what shape you are describing! Good plenary activity
Story Opening Prompts

Story Opening Prompts

(3)
These are 3 images that the children can choose from. They work well to spark their imaginations for story openings, with a focus on setting description. My year 5's enjoyed deciding upon their character in the image and developing their thoughts and feelings.

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.
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.

Counting to 20

Great worksheet to help children learn the numbers to 20. Should be supported by number lines as a visual aid.
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 Calculating Perimeter
jenniwren1234jenniwren1234

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.
Ancient Egyptian Religious Beliefs

Ancient Egyptian Religious Beliefs

(1)
Excellent powerpoint for use with KS2 in teaching Ancient Egypt. The resources explains about the different Gods that the Ancient Egyptians worshipped and also background information for why they worshipped in this way.
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.

Template for creating a 'Family Shield' all about yourself! Perfect for transition to create a display ready for your new class.
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.

Good to be Green Class Target Display

Good to be Green is a fantastic behaviour management resource. I have created this display header in which you can write a whole class behaviour target. This is a good way of creating a whole class focus.

Edit for your own class name, laminate and stick on the wall! When a child is ready to use a pen for writing, they can write their name on. A great tool to encourage handwriting skills through positive reinforcement.

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!
