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. The order is; Ice Age, Britain became an island, Stone Age , Iron Age and Birth of Christ. Can easily be edited and will save time!
This is a six weeks medium term plan for the topic of The Farm, which covers all the areas of the EYFS. This can be edited and will help many teachers out with what activities / teaching / assessment bands to focus upon this term (this was written in April so the children are achieving ELG's by this point). I wrote it all myself and was specific for my school and the books we were covering were also specifically chosen for this topic. The book covered are; Chicken Liken, Pig in the Pond and Farmer Duck. RE is also on here all planned - the church as a special place I hope this helps!
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 simple timeline for children to complete. The first timeline has 5 boxes to complete and the second has six boes to complete. It can be sued for history, maths, ordering routines, stories etc! I have used it for PSHE to order the changes of the children (photos) over the last 5 years! Looks great in their books. This can be easily edited and will save time!

This is simple WANTED POSTER for John the Baptist to use as a lesson starter to encourage the children to discuss who he is, why is he wanted, etc. I have used the same template three times and have changed the photo of him in each one. Here is outline of what i will do; Teacher puts up a “wanted” poster of John The Baptist with a reward of half a million pounds. Pupils /Teacher to read out vivid descriptions on him while the rest of the class will try to decide who he is and what his role is. Matthew 11:9-10 and 3:1-3, Mark 1:3, John 1:27 and Luke 16:16.
This is a colourful worksheet where the children have to name the 3D-Shape and then find out how many corners, edges and faces each shape has. The LO and SC is on the worksheet which will make marking much easier! I have used this with my lower group children in Year three and they loved the colours! I also gave them the physical objects/ shapes to manipulate and find the answers.
This is a six weeks medium term plan for Reception on the topic Transport. This will help other teachers to have an overview on what to plan / teach and assess using the developmental bands. The developmental bands chosen for this term are progressive from my other six weeks plan on Festivals /Celebrations. The core story books were specifically chosen for my school but these can be changed and adapted.
This is a topic web for Nursery / Reception which includes lots of activities / tasks for teachers to use and follow. These activities were then filtered and applied to the six weeks planning which is also uploaded.

This is a resource where the children have to create a persuasive poster on the Caribbean. There are two photos of a Caribbean beach which the children can choose from. Then the children use the boxes provided to write their persuasive information on and cut out and stick on the poster. I encouraged the chn to use all of the features of persuasive posters e.g. alliteration, bossy verbs, slogans, rhetorical questions, facts etc. They loved this lesson. I also enlarged the sheets to A3. Will save lots of time!
This is a medium term plan on Animals that outlines what will be taught over six weeks. It has been made in word so that it can be edited to suit your school. The three main stories we covered for this topic was; Six dinner Sid Rumble in the jungle Hooray for fish / Emperor Penguin
