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.

STRAIGHT LINES TO CURVED LINES

STRAIGHT LINES TO CURVED LINES

I have memories of completing this activity at school - we would use a template or draw our own axis to draw straight lines to matching the numbers. (In the example, I used 1 to 1 but the blank template can be adapted to use any times table eg; 1 to 4, 2 to 8). The third activity is based around a circle template and initially the students draw a line to every fifth number before being encouraged to experiment with other numbers to make a variety of impressive shapes. As a child we used to do this activity using card and embroidery thread and create pictures using 'curved stitching'. The activity is also useful for developing fine motor skills.

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.

Tried and Tested are strategies thatI have used with individual students.

Tried and Tested are strategies thatI have used with individual students.

These strategies support students with maths (averages, halving, subtraction, fraction vocabulary, mental addition and subtraction) writing (character description and using speech) Grammar and Punctuation (conjunctions and capital letters) and Spelling (tricky digraphs and words). Some of the strategies and ideas have been suggested by my individual students. I find that having a strategy or a mnemonic to start with encourages to create their own strategy and alternative mnemonics. Individual strategies and mnemonics can be trimmed, laminated to be used by an individual how they chose e.g. placed on their desk.
