The resources that I am sharing I have used successfully as a Primary Tutor to develop learning, understanding and confidence with individual students. They can also be used for group work. To keep my teaching skills sharp and to continue to develop my understanding of the curriculum, I also work as a Supply Teacher. Before becoming a Tutor I was a Senior Leader in a large Primary school holding the position of Assess Co-ordinator; I have also been a Year Leader and a SENCO.

THEME PARK ACTIVITIES

THEME PARK ACTIVITIES

A pack of ten activities that give students the challenge of designing their own theme park given specific criteria, e.g. 70 % of the theme park is designated for rides. The activities are an opportunity to revisit and practice area, percentage, money, ratio, data handling and averages. Two of the activities are English based and ask the students to describe their rides and to adverts and use persuasive writing to promote their theme park. The individual students I have completed these activities with have enjoyed them and they were keen to review, change and improve their original designs. They enjoyed the fact that the activities had a real sense of purpose and that they had freedom to chose and decide how the park was designed. The activities could be used with KS3 students and adapted for KS1.

CLEO THE CIRCUS CAT  - picture story book

CLEO THE CIRCUS CAT - picture story book

Cleo the Circus Cat is a multi-talented performer. Join her for a week of fun as she walks the tight rope, swings on the trapeze and jumps through a ring of fire. She performs magic acts, throw custard pies with the clowns and becomes the Ringmaster. The bright, colourful pages accompany each sentence introducing the day’s activity. The story is a great resource for teaching the days of the week and introducing circus vocabulary. I original wrote this story for a German teacher who teaches primary aged German students English. She was looking for a picture book to introduce her students to some circus vocabulary.

MULTIPLICATION ACTIVITIES VOL. 6

MULTIPLICATION ACTIVITIES VOL. 6

I created these six activities to support individual students learn their target tables and generally develop a quick and accurate recall of the tables. Most of the activities include a template so that the activity can be adapted for individual students.
