FREE The Stick Man Story Workbook - 16 Thinking Hat Worksheets For Fun Creative Reading In Class. The Stick Man is all about a piece of wood which gets taken away by a dog, picked up by a girl and thrown in the river... where he is found by a swan. At each point he is further and further from home and less likely to make it back... this set of worksheets looks at the different Thinking Hat approaches to this book. They will consider facts, feelings, positives, negatives, creative approaches and finally make a mind map. This book does not contain any of the original drawings or text.

Thousands of Report Comments All Primary School+ Teacher Report Writing Assistant

Thousands of Report Comments All Primary School+ Teacher Report Writing Assistant

I collected together thousands of different report comments used by the QCA to describe learning outcomes and created a whole school report writing tool for every class in a primary schools. It will save you hours and hours when you write your reports. I can now write all my school reports in an afternoon or a couple of evenings. I have used this set of report writing comments for the last 10 years. I have included a link to help you download the freeware report writing software and also a step by step guide to help you get the most out of this wonderful software. I have gone through hundreds of different teaching schemes written by the QCA and I have re-written their learning outcomes as report comments. It is now possible to simply click the different things a student has achieved in a specific topic and cut and paste it into your school reports. I have made sure that for English and Maths, that it is possible to differentiate between high, middle and lower achieving children. Each report is still written with a single child in mind, and so every report still comes out unique and special to that student. The difference being you now simply add their name, their sex and click on the statements which are relevant to them. In the past, I have received great praise for this material and often it has been described as a life or career saver, when teachers needed to produce a complete set of high quality teaching resources in a very short time. Please note - due to the huge number of different files and comments I have produced, it is still possible there will be an occasional typo in the comments bank. Please read and check your reports after writing them to make sure they are perfect before sending them out.

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

18 Different Maths and Grammar SATS Tests (Hundreds of differentiated practice questions!)

I want to make KS2 SATs revision fun. I want it to be something students and teachers really enjoy. I have taken each of the SATs tests and combined the original test papers and the original marking schemes into PowerPoints where you ask a question and immediately see the the answer on the next slide. This teaching packs covers KS2 Maths and KS2 SATs SPAG tests (Spag is English grammar, punctuation and spelling Papers) The idea is that you can now ask a question and all your students show you the answer on their mini-whiteboards and then you discuss the answers together and see what would have got one or two points. As the students can work in pairs or small groups on the questions, they are less stressed and enjoy the whole revision process. In addition, it gives them a chance to learn about other student's strategies. This pack could be used in the classroom for whole class teaching, for small groups or at home as a great teaching resource. If you like this teaching resource, check out my teaching resources at http://www.TimeToTeach.co.uk. If you like these resources, be sure to leave a nice comment. Nice comments make my day, and motivate me to write more teaching resources.

2016 Year 6 Sample SATS Maths Papers - Questions And Answers

2016 Year 6 Sample SATS Maths Papers - Questions And Answers

In 2016, there will be a new Maths test format. I have taken the sample 2016 Maths SATs tests and combined the original question and answer papers into single documents. This means you can ask a single question to the class, wait for a response on their mini white boards and then check their answers against the official marking scheme. Check out my new video on how to make this lesson extra successful. The great thing about this is it really reduces the amount of stress in the classroom as the students are able to work on their own, in pairs or small teams to work out the answer. They can then discuss their different strategies at resolving each of the questions.. This is a nice set of teaching resources to keep a lesson well paced and snappy. Please leave your comments about it below.

KS2 SATS and SPAG Revision Test Bundle

KS2 SATS and SPAG Revision Test Bundle

Lots of different Year 6 (KS2) revision tests. What makes these teaching resources special? I have combined the different official documents, so you have the questions and answers all in one place. You can choose if you have the questions followed by the answers or if you prefer all the questions together, followed by all the answers together. This means it is much more flexible in the classroom as you can set a question, then review the question as a class or you can work your way through a whole test paper at once!
