After hours of searching for differentiated worksheets for children in Year 3 to plan an informal letter in role of a character, I ended up making my own. The worksheets are all differentiated for HA, MA, LA and SEN and have differentiated Success Criteria at the top of the worksheet. HA have to include; Feelings, questions, contractions as well as plan all the key features, including the three main paragraphs. MA have to include; Feelings and questions as well as plan all the key features, including the three main paragraphs. LA have to include; Feelings and questions as well as plan all the key features, including the three main paragraphs. For this group the Address was already written. SEN have to include; Feelings as well as plan some the key features, including a main paragraph. I hope this saves you lots of time!
This is a timeline to use with Year three when teaching the topic of the Stone Age / Iron Age. The children can either write the answers into the boxes or cut and stick them into the boxes.

This is a worksheet where the children have to identify and group animals with or without skeletons, they can either cut and stick pictures or write the names of the animals. The worksheet has been differentiated three times; LA - uses language of 'with skeleton / without skeleton' MA - uses language of vertebrate / invertebrate - with definition beside to remind them HA - just uses title 'vertebrate / invertebrate' - no definition I can't attach the pictures I used due to copyright but there are loads on the internet out there to use. The tables will save time and include the LO and Success Criteria. I hope they help!
This includes the success criteria for the lesson. There are 8 simple sentences for the Year two children, common exception words are highlighted in yellow. There are 5 simple sentences for the children working at year 1 level - again year 1 common exception words are highlighted in yellow. You could even copy the Success Criteria table onto another sheet and cut out and stick into their books which will make it easier to mark!
This is a smart notebook slide I have created to work through with my current year 2 class. I have created the questions to look like those given in the SATs. The questions are mostly arithmetic and I will try and find some time to do a reasoning one in due course. (There are over 40 questions) The questions can be edited to suit your requirements which will save a lot of time. I hope this helps in some way :)
A story map template for the Nativity Story. Looks great printed on A3 and stuck into the children's learning journals. Perfect for Year 1.
This is a slide I made when I ask the children in Year 1 to plan their own story. This can also be used/edited for Year 2. It works through the characters, settings, title, objects, beginning; middle and end of a story and then there is a planning sheet page, where you and the class can plan a story together. The success criteria are also included in the slide and a question at the end asking the chn to explain what they have learned today! I have also attached the worksheets that I used - differentiated - HA, MA and LA which will save huge amounts of time!
This is a newspaper report ready for the Year three class to complete. We have read the story 'Stone Girl Bone Girl' and we have studied features of newspaper reports, identifying them in real newspapers and other newspaper report texts using highlighters. It is now time for the chn to write their own, based on Mary Anning finding the sea monster fossil. For the more able group I have left this blank - they have to include a catchy heading, by line, strapline, quotes, paragraphs, caption for the photo etc. Then I have differentiated the other groups where some have to think of the strapline / introduction, some have the strapline given, some have the heading given and some have to think of it themselves etc. All worksheets have a photo of the fossil on there. Easy to edit and will save heaps of time! The title of your newspaper will have to be changed as I have done this one to suit our school.
This is a short informal letter for you to get the chn to either independently or in groups (blown up to A3) to highlight and annotate the key features. Can easily be edited :) LO & Success Criteria included at top of worksheet for chn to read and refer to.

This is a smart notebook slide that introduces Perimeter. I was research perimeter for an observation but i couldn't find what I was looking for exactly and so I made this. First the LO is introduced, then the chn have to say what they already know about Perimeter. Next we talk about the definition and what it means to them. Finally we work through examples and how we work / set it out in preparation for the activity. We then look at the Success criteria and then there are a few end slides which challenge the chn (plenary).
