This is such a fun resource for getting to know your new class, and much more interesting than getting them to complete a transition booklet!
Just open the game in Powerpoint and choose your class size. You can either play it as musical chairs or musical states its up to you- press start music will play and then stop after 30 seconds- last child standing/moving gets to choose Truth or Dare!
The Truth questions are aimed at finding more out about the children, The Dares involve lots of fun tasks that your class will find hilarious!
Instead of buying class presents at the end of the year I set up an ‘Oscars’ awards ceremony with a little red carpet complete with childrens Hollywood handprints and give these awards out, the children love them and treasure them far more than anything else i could buy. We get dressed up in our best clothes and have a little party as well!
Includes 33 different awards so something for everyone! Also a ticklist for you to keep track of what you have awarded and a template for creating the handprints. All fully editable.
PLEASE LEAVE A REVIEW :) Aimed at Year 1 or 2 Includes 10 lessons worth of planning with over 50 PowerPoint slides to compliment teaching and activities. Also includes differentiated writing templates where needed.
Starts off with the children using inference skills to find out information about the mysterious Bob, this then progresses to the children writing questions, creating a character profile and retelling the story. In the second week the children take an imaginary trip to the moon where they role play being on a moon tour, which leads to them creating and describing their own characters and settings. The unit ends with the children planning and writing their own Space stories.
This pack contains all of the information parents need to know about the Phonics Screening Check, along with a set of Phonics Mats -6 in total- so enough to cover the half-term before the test. These contain 6 short activities that are completed over a week and help the children practice the key skills needed to pass the screening check. I have also included a parent help sheet that explains how to do each task. Having parents involved really boosted my results last year and this pack was simple enough for them to follow. I printed it out and handed to all of my parents during parents evening.
10 lessons of planning with slides to match each lesson.
Includes differentiated templates needed for each lesson too. All you need is a camera, and an old action man doll you can pass off as Traction Man

This is a resource pack to create a rainbow challenge area in your classroom. The idea is that in each area of your continuous provision you have a challenge for the children to complete which are linked to the curriculum objectives. Each time they complete a task they collect the corresponding coloured lolly stick and place it in their pocket on your display until they manage to do all tasks and complete their rainbow! Included is the title, pockets for each child either with a unicorn or dragon with photo or with just their name, signs for each area in your provision which detail the task, and a certificate for those who complete or do good work etc. Everything is editable so that you easily chnage the tasks week by week.
Start your Space topic with a bang by setting up an alien crash landing! This includes my planning based on this scenario and all writing templates as well as an explanation of how I set it up. Aimed at Year1/2 all writing templates are editable.
Lovely activity in the lead up to Christmas. Each child has a Reindeer/Santa. Starting at the bottom of the scroll or beard, each day they try to follow the act of kindness such as smile at a friend, when done they cut it off until the whole scroll has gone! This includes a Rudolph version and Santa's Beard version both in colour and black and white. Both are also fully editable so you can write your own acts of kindness on.
A week of Literacy planning for Year 1 . The children need to write Sophies Mummy a new shopping list they then receive a letter from the Zookeeper concerned about his poorly tiger, the children are asked to design a menu of healthier foods for him. Next they get a letter from the tiger thanking them for their help and inviting them to a tea party ( I held one in class with biscuits and juice and the TA wore a tiger mask,) this prompts them to write about their own party experiences. The week finishes with the children writing thank you notes and finally a recount of their tiger tea party. All differentiated writing templates and letters (from tiger and zookeeper) included (13 in total)
Practise both recognising sounds and reading alien words with this fabulous minion themed game. The idea is each child has a pupil sheet and something to splat with, this could be their hand, a fly splatter or we used a ruler each. Start the game then when the sound flashes on the screen the children must find the word on their sheet that contains that sound and splat it!!!
This game is lots of fun!
There are 3 different versions for each game, with 6 rounds to play so thats 18 different games in total.
