I have taught in years 2 and 3 mainly and these are resources I have used as part of my teaching, assessment and evidence gathering. The English planning structure has helped me manage my time more efficiently as well as providing an effective routine for the children.

PSHE Values Activity

PSHE Values Activity

(0)
PSHE classroom or societal values challenge. Children rank different values according to their importance in society, including things like honesty and bravery as well as looking good. The activity can be done individually or in groups to begin a discussion about what people value against what is really important. It can link to school or classroom rules. Great for establishing behavioural expectations with the children or exploring why there are certain rules and expectations in Cutting and sticking. Complete resource needs nothing else.
Phonics alien words practice

Phonics alien words practice

(1)
Reading a selection of alien words and using more difficult sounds to create own words to practise. The adult who assesses the child will need to make a note in the space provided of the sounds that they are struggling with. The child can then use those sounds with an adult or on their own to create their own alien words. I have used this with a complete sound chart on the back.

Differentiated Comprehension - Instructions Year 1/2

Two versions of the same text - one very basic using GPC words where possible, one with much more detail with year 2 vocabulary (suffixes, adjectives, conjunctions and common exception words). Comprehension questions with two sections - the first which can be answered by all children and the second to be answered by the more able with the more complex text. An assessment grid next to the questions for marking off the three year 2 objectives covered. All children can access the same lesson at significantly different levels. NB - the sheets don’t have any images. I would draw my own before photocopying or the children could decorate the page…

3 Resources
Ranking the most and least important needs for a person to thrive including education, a house, a phone and access to medication. Promotes discussions about what we value in society and what is really important. Activity where children decide the most essential values to live by in society down to the least. The values include honesty, bravery and looking good. Can be related to class and school rules, or laws in society. Creating your own society - a longer challenge where children set up and organise their own society assigning a monetary value to different jobs, deciding what services should be expensive and what should be available for free. Also covered is how children can raise money to provide free things which introduces the idea of tax. All activities can be linked together to cover understanding of money, ethical values, British values and government.
General English planning structure for entire year. Yr 1 and 2

General English planning structure for entire year. Yr 1 and 2

This weekly planning can be used week after week with minimal adjustments and can be applied to almost all genres. I have used this in years 2 and 3 successfully. It is a HUGE time saver and since I have followed it, I have seen SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS in my children’s reading and writing. The result is a piece of evidence for reading and writing each week, completed independently by the children and gives them the confidence to take ownership of their targets and work largely independently. It will need to be adapted to suit your class and the type of writing you want to cover.

The story is about a Monkey who wants something just because his friend has it. He gives up his time trying to get it instead of being happy with what he has already. Great for PHSE or assembly. Text included. Questions for a comprehension or class discussion included. Assessment grid relating to the interim framework included. The story stops with the monkey needing to make a decision. The children in my class had to choose how the story should end and some wrote it up for homework. We also wrote a similar story about two bears looking for a cave with the same lesson.

Basic needs activity

PSHE activity exploring what a person needs to thrive as they grow. Children need to look at different needs and rank them in terms of importance. The options include things like water, education and WiFi, to encourage discussions of what we value and what helps people succeed in society as it is structured. Children can complete individually or in groups. Great for discussions about what is important in life and can lead into discussions about how different people live around the world with less access to things we value. Complete activity just needs scissors and glue.
Text for gathering evidence for Year 2 reading objectives

Text for gathering evidence for Year 2 reading objectives

(0)
A great time-saver! This is a paragraph designed for the winter. It is a debate about school closures in heavy snow which is an engaging for children. It includes GPC, common exception and poly-syllabic words as well as words with common suffixes. I recorded my children reading the text and marked the words read correctly which then hit numerous objectives on the interim framework both on working towards and working at expected level. I also expanded the work so children then created their own debate regarding school closures in the snow.

2 Week Rotation covering – • Responding to feedback • Verbal and written responses to texts demonstrating comprehension • Spelling Patterns • Grammar Rules • Evidence of writing, drafting and editing. Area for recording additional support for children who need it. Handwriting practice completed separately. Minimal tweaking required to apply to any genre. Used last year for year 2 children and got top 10% writing results for SATs. One text required for each 2 week cycle. One comprehension, one spelling activity and one grammar activity also needed. Huge time saver as weekly planning time is small changes to include additional activities (eg. debates for persuasive writing etc)
A set of workbooks  and PowerPoints covering the whole Year 3 Grammar and Punctuation curriculum

A set of workbooks and PowerPoints covering the whole Year 3 Grammar and Punctuation curriculum

(0)
Three workbooks with a range of information and activities covering the Grammar and Punctuation curriculum. The activities are differentiated with challenges and each workbook gets progressively more challenging with reduced scaffolding. There are also some accompanying PowerPoints which link to the pages in the workbooks. I used these workbooks and PowerPoints to teach the grammar and punctuation curriculum and they were also excellent reference books for children to look back through to remind themselves of the different concepts. Less able children completed the first activities whilst more able children moved onto the more difficult work at the bottom of the pages. Writing on the PowerPoints has been left to show examples and can be deleted by clicking on the writing. I hope this is helpful. I found it very useful and was great evidence for coverage!
Create and lead your own society

Create and lead your own society

(0)
Activity involving creating a simplified society, choosing what people can have free access to, how to distribute the overall wealth of the society and what skills should be rewarded the most/least. Also children need to think about how they will earn/collect money from people in society to fund the services they want to provide for free, introducing the concept of taxation. This task could be covered over a longer time period which explores which skills are essential to society and how to best reward people within those roles. It links to British values as children can compare their society to Britain and reflect on what they might do differently. The task also encourages discussion between children and acceptance of other people’s ideas which may differ. Children love completing this task, and it helps them have a secure understanding of how society runs. They are also very good at spotting potential problems and coming up with solutions to solve them, working together as a team. British Values

3D shape matching cards

(0)
Great for children to practise or to complete independently for assessment. I used these for teaching the properties of the shapes, then later on, each child completed the activity and I took a picture and saved it to their area as evidence for the interim framework. Very simple! These cards are now in the classroom for children to revisit anytime they finish their work. It is good for keeping the knowledge fresh.

Blending and Segmenting to make words and sentences three worksheets - Year 1

(1)
Simple worksheet with the six objects listed at the bottom so you know what you need to draw in the boxes before you photocopy them. In the first six boxes the children must look at the picture and complete the basic sentence by spelling the final word using the sounds at the bottom. In the final box, the children must try to read the final word and draw their own picture of the object. There are three sheets. I haven’t tried these yet so I hope they are useful!
