2d shapes Problem Solving and Reasoning Working In Greater Depth

2d shapes Problem Solving and Reasoning Working In Greater Depth

This is a fun, engaging and creative lesson with shape. The lesson has been successfully used to apply knowledge of shapes in a year 2 setting. Children can begin to think of problems systematically. They think of the best way to start, that there is more than one answer, that they can use number doubles and counting on to support them. Children are encouraged to find different ways to make a 9 sided shape family. They need to be secure with properties of simple 2d shapes previously such as sides of regular shapes. This activity can also be used in year 1 with children working in greater depth to demonstrate reasoning with shape in the measures unit. Work can be differentiated by giving children regular or irregular shapes. Very stimulating activity for all learners.

Adding money amounts and using number line. Block E2

Adding money amounts and using number line. Block E2

This is fun and engaging way to work with money for young children. They can show reasoning with number and application of skills. In this problem solving task children are using money and showing a system. How many different ways can you make the amount using 2 coins. Differentiated for low ability with scaffolding provided and less amount of coins to use. Higher ability to use bigger amount and three coins. Additional money work consolidates number e.g. giving change from an amount using a number line to find the difference (and counting forward from the smallest number). Children working at the expected standard in the new maths curriculum can use a ruler as a substitute for a number line. Suitable for ks1.

Year 2  Grammar English Writing TAF

Year 2 Grammar English Writing TAF

This is a fantastic Toolkit with all the Year 2 grammar features written on top. It is designed to be used as a boy friendly writing Toolkit. It can also be used as a display around the class. I like to give it to the children as a motivator when they have mastered one of the tools. They get it to keep and possibly share at the table - that means they are the master and other children will come to see them for advise when they are stuck. Great to move those reluctant boy writers and use it like a competition winning ticket- as we all know boys like challenges. Enjoy and please leave a comment if it has been useful in your classrooms. Suitable for the New English 2018 curriculum.

Feedback for writing and Next Step marking Year 2 TAF

Feedback for writing and Next Step marking Year 2 TAF

This document is to support teachers with feedback and marking. There is an example Powerpoint of good quality feedback and the pedagogy behind it - with children's work, next step marking, self assessment ideas and positive feedback language. There is also a bank of 'Next Step Marking' ideas that have been created to support teachers in their feedback to children that allow independence in revising their work. If marking is over explicit, then parts of the writing may be disqualified. It is highly recommended not to over mark and train children to understand teacher feedback e.g. Use varied sentences for effect on the reader/audience (means that the child has to use questions, commands, statements and exclamatory sentences). The detail in brackets is displayed in the classroom and given as verbal feedback to child. They then go away and improve their writing accordingly. This documents will give you more open bank of statements to use in your next steps (so moderators can't say the feedback was too explicit), and not use that piece of work as evidence for the child meeting the expected criteria (or above greater depth). Suitable for KS1, but can be easily adapted to Year 3 also. Hope you find it useful for your teams and use it to promote independent editing, revising and improvement of work. Linked to English 2018 TAF.

Writing for an Audience and Purpose Year 2 TAF

Writing for an Audience and Purpose Year 2 TAF

Writing with a voice, with audience in mind and for a purpose is the most crucial change in the new English framework. See the document to know how to teach the difference between audience and purpose. Teachers have been given examples from the year 2 units of work in this document. It explains how to do a Tweak it Task to show the purpose of writing can change from entertainment, to inform, or to instruct. For example, here is a narrative of an adventure story- now change it to instructions on how to go on an adventure - (the purpose here has changed - and this will effect word choices, tone, structure of writing). Hope you find it useful to explain to the younger ones. Suitable for writing across the school although examples given are from year 2.

Short Film Big Write Whole School Approach

Short Film Big Write Whole School Approach

AN excellent array of ideas to have a whole school approach to writing. This is part of a Big Write initiative in school whereby all children from EYFS, KS1 and KS2 all follow the same title (to plan a unit of work) or they follow the same genre/form of writing, or the same hook. Previously, the school have done a Big Write Dragon Week, and Big Write Chocolate week. This Powerpoint suggests suitable short Films to all the year groups that would engage, excite and provide a great stimulus for writing. Teachers have the flexibility to choose the form and purpose of writing to meet their children's needs. Enjoy and please leave a comment.

Harry and the Bucket full of dinosaurs InstructionYear 1 and EYFS

This is a fantastic way to include a dinosaur topic in your English unit. The resource contains an exemplar text (Instructions) with visuals aimed at the Exceeding in EYFS or Working at in level 1 in year 1. The children are introduced to the story first - Harry and the bucket full of dinosaurs. It then leads on to learning instructional exemplar text (imitate) about 'How to take care of a pet dino.' This is supported by a text map to sequence and internalise language. The grammar features included are time connectives and prepositional language. The exemplar text is differentiated for SEN or EAL learners who may have little English, or limited writing ability. The unit lends itself well to T4W and imitation, innovation and invention. The children may go onto writing instructions for 'How to care for yourself ' or 'How to get ready in the morning.' There are lots of opportunities to do cross curricular and independent writing opportunities from this book e.g. my first day shopping. Excellent text for reluctant boy writers.
