Emotional Literacy Lesson

Emotional Literacy Lesson

I created this presentation as a way to help my year 4 children to better understand and identify the many different feelings they have, to be able to name them specifically and to enable them to better express themselves when they have a problem . This is also an excellent way to develop emotional vocabulary for story telling. I hope you enjoy this resource, please let me know if you find it useful. Thank You :)

CLIC Maths Coin Multiplication Progress Drive and Activities

CLIC Maths Coin Multiplication Progress Drive and Activities

I have created this resource as I love teaching maths using the CLIC maths format and Coin Multiplication is among one of the most popular maths games in my class. (For me and the kids!) This game develops competency in the skills of partitioning, halving , doubling and multiplying by 10. In this powerpoint I have worked through all of the progression steps. If you start at the beginning, you can see accelerated learning. I haven't included decimal numbers but once you get the hang of it, you can adapt it to whatever your children need. Please let me know if you have found this resource useful and how you have used it with your class. Enjoy :)

My weeks worth of 20 minute quick fire CLIC lessons that I have planned for my year 4 class based on the Big Maths CLIC maths planning for term 3. I reuse the templates and just add in the objectives and activities. CLIC stands for ‘Counting’, ‘Learn Its’, ‘It’s Nothing New’ and ‘Calculation’.

The Pied Piper

The Pied Piper

An introduction to the Pied Piper. We read the text to support our topic, Medieval Life. We wanted to investigate archaic language and discover what the characters were searching for. I wrote my own shorter version so we could teach it through Talk For Writing. Let me know if you are interested in this version of the text.

Progression in Thinking

Progression in Thinking

If you are developing thinking skills, philosophy (P4C), growth mindsets or any other programme of study that focuses specifically on thinking in your school, this is a really useful document to help to better understand what progression of thinking in children might look like. It took me ages to write it and I expect there will be the odd spelling mistake etc... But it is an adaptable and very useful resource to use to measure the progression in thinking throughout the Early Years and Primary age range. Please let me know if you find this document useful and how you have used it in your school. Thank you :)

Quick Times Tables Game

Quick Times Tables Game

This game is a basic bingo board with randomised numbers to help your class practise the times tables. It is based on TNT Tables from 10 Maths Miracles. I can't seem to download it so my husband made this basic version. If any one knows how I can obtain the real game, please let me know. I'm going to use this with my year 4 class but you can adapt it for any year group by changing the range or the time you give your children to work it out. Let me know how you get on. :)
