This yellow handwriting paper gives children clear boundaries for their letter sizes.
For year 3 children who struggle, I print this as A3 size so they can get the hang of their letters all sitting within the yellow coloured area. Descenders go below the yellow and ascenders reach above.
Over the year, we print the sheets onto A4 paper. Then I use a highlighter pen in the children’s books to allow them to continue to practise their letter formation.
I have had some mind blowing results!
Science topics sorted into biology, chemistry and physics.
Each year group has their topics to follow in a visual and child-friendly way.
I use these for the whole school science display.
Each class pegs their current topic onto a washing line.
In our floor books, we use the same printed topic title page.
I printed these word class labels and inserted them into clear plastic magnets.
On a magnetic whiteboard, we use these magnets to label each word class in our shared sentences.
I found some magnets similar to the Baker Ross magnet kits
Autumn White Rosed Mixed Age Small Steps Sequence Year 4 and 5
I have sequenced the year 4 and 5 small step objectives so that they flow.
I have created a document for Autumn and Spring. (Summer to come).
This is stuck in the front of our maths books and the children tick off their objective when we complete it.
I have created a diary planner to suit my needs and preferred layout!
I print the two pages onto one A4. It is important that the Friday Saturday Sunday page is printed onto the left hand side of the page. This means that when you fold the paper in half, you can hole punch the left side and insert it into a ringbinder folder. I buy A5 ringbinders so that they easily fit into my bag.
These diary pages are great because mistakes can be taken out! As teachers, we all know that dates and planning changes every week!
I have created these visual science sequence sheets for the children’s books.
There are 6 lessons for each year group, for each topic.
The first lesson looks at a Science book to spark scientific questioning and scientific enquiry.
