(based on 58 reviews)

English teacher for 5 years. LSA for 2 years before that. Love learning; love teaching. Want to change education for the better and get rid of silly expectations! Believe pupils need to take responsibility for their learning and should be encouraged to take a risk. Never shout; use positive language to reinforce expectations. Try to laugh every day :)

The answer includes: subject terminology, links to context and evidence from the text. Pupils could highlight all three to think about how things link up. Do feel free to edit this to make it a more sophisticated piece for higher-ability, or edit to make it easier for a SEN class who will, ultimately, sit the same exam.

Back To School Subject Review

(0)
Enables teachers to get to know their kids on the first lesson back. Can change subject to suit your own preference. I firmly believe in knowing how children feel in order to make progress and hope this will help build relationships quickly by adding my own comments after they've filled in the sheet.

Behaviour For Learning Self-review

(0)
Used these with all classes at the end of each term to review behaviour (particularly with naughty kids). Found out things I would have never known (e.g some pupil unhappy because their seat was next to their bully). Once completed by the children, I added my comments/ratings in a different colour then gave them back.
