The Snail And The Whale is one of Britain's best selling children picture books. The images in this book come from public domain resources - not from the original book. I was amazed that there were so few teaching resources for this book and so I have written 16 Guided Reading Thinking Hat worksheets for the book. I would love to have some feedback from anyone who has used them in the classroom.

This resource has been seen over 10,000 times and is one of my most popular teaching resources. The images are not from the book, and you will still need to use the book to complete the reading tasks. I was surprised at how few reading resources were available for Room on the broom, and I am keen to promote Thinking Hat Reading skills in the classroom and so I have spent a week developing a set of worksheets which teachers can download and use in the classroom. Please leave a comment after using them in the classroom.

Here is a great set of Year 3 Maths teaching resources. These could be used to help revise for the KS1 or KS2 SATs tests, as a resource for a supply teacher or simply as something to do at home.

Lesson 1: Y3 1 Autumn Place Values Lesson 2: Y3 2 Autumn Ordering Lesson 3: Y3 3 Autumn Add Subtract Multiples Lesson 4: Y3 4 Autumn Mental Calculations Lesson 5: Y3 5 Autumn Mental Models Lesson 6: Y3 6 Autumn Money Lesson 7: Y3 7 Autumn Adding several numbers Lesson 8: Y3 8 Autumn Add subtract 11 or 9 Lesson 9: Y3 9 Autumn Subtraction Bonds Lesson 10: Y3 10 Autumn Addition on empty line Lesson 11: Y3 11 Autumn Solving Word Problems Originally, I was asked to send them to some friends, and so I thought I would share them with all the world via TES. Since then they have been viewed over 40,000 times! This is my most downloaded set of presentations I have ever made on TES.

I love Wigan Maths. I have used them constantly in my own classroom since 2000. While these assessments don't match the current curriculum, they are still an excellent tool for reviewing and revising maths. I took the original tests and I have made it so your students can do all the test in one go, or you can give them a single question, give them a little time to resolve the problem and then discuss what is the answer and why. This is the best use of these Wigan maths tests.

FREE Year 4 Termly Maths Assessments - Perfect For the Year 4 Optional SATs Tests Revision I love Wigan Maths. I have simply taken their ideas and made them ready for the modern classroom. I have upgraded the paper tests and made them more fun, more colourful Year 4 PowerPoint presentations. I have given the teachers two different options. The students can do a single question in an alloted amount of time and then discuss their answers as a class - discussing their different strategies and how they checked their answers or a more standard test - and checking.

I always loved using Wigan maths with my class. I have built an entire set of teaching resources around these defunct tests as I think teachers still want to be able to access and use them as a way of preparing for different assessment tests. I have arranged it so you can either let your class do it all at once or the more efficient revision method where you do a question, check the answer as a class and then discuss the different ways of solving the problem.

While the Wigan LEA website disappeared, taking all its maths resources with it, I kept a copy and then made a complete set of PowerPoint Maths assessments I want to share with everyone. These would be great for revising for the KS1 SATs tests. There are two different formats, you can either show them a question, then let them work out the answer and check their answers, or you can show them each question in turn and set them sme time to find the answer and then ask them the next question until you finish the test. I have also included the original test papers for teachers who want to print out all the test papers and answers all in one go. I hope you find them as useful as I do with my own class.

I love Year 5 Wigan Maths Tests. While they are little old and don't follow the current curriculum, they are still an excellent set of tests for revision purposes. I have taken the traditional tests and converted them all into PowerPoint presentations. On top of this, I have given teachers the option of either letting the students only see the answers at the end or after each question. I really like the second option as it means I can set a question, then give them a little time to think about it or discuss it in pairs and then show them the answer and discuss the different ways different children or different pairs found their answers. This is as much a learning experience as the test itself for many children. I really hope this pack is useful for lots of teachers.
