Editable structure strips (these are suitable for Y5 but could be changed for other age groups). Staple into the margin to support children when writing.
Here is the full first lesson (including exit tickets) for the RE topic Family. Everything is editable to enable you to change what you want and make it more suitable for your class.
More suited for KS2, these task cards are ideal for those children who struggle to stay focused or work independently. Laminate these and write simple instructions on what you want the child to achieve by the end of the lesson and they can tick off the step as they go with a whiteboard pen. I’ve included bitmojis on mine (feel free to delete or change to make it more suitable for your class). You may have to download the Twinkl Cursive Looped font in order for the full effect to be shown on your device.
Nothing annoys me more than when I have children telling tales on each other after break - especially when I’m about to teach. This is an incident reporting form I’ve made (inspiration from NSMTC). I find that, due to how lengthy and long-winded it is, children tend to just turn around and say “it is okay, Miss, we’re friends again!”.
