This is a slide which introduces the LO; To write a powerful description. It is all based on writing a powerful description on the topic of a forest. There are various photographs of forests that the chn can 'think, pair and share' on what they see, hear, feel etc. The photographs can then be annotated.
There is a forest description already written that can be read and discussed with the class, and then finally the Success criteria is shown to discuss with the chn how they will be successful.
Will save time I'm sure!
This is a differentiated worksheet where the children have to order 2-digit numbers from smallest to largest. There is also a LA worksheet where the children have to order 1-digit numbers from smallest to largest.
This work sheet has the LO AND SUCCESS CRITERIA on them. You can also change the Success criteria or and more, e.g 'Can I form my numbers correctly?'
It can easily be edited and printed out to suit the abilities in your class. The worksheet looks great in their books!
Planning for Year One Monday to Wednesday - Bog Baby. The planning is for the very start of the book. Monday they listen to a description of the Bog Baby from the book and then make it using play dough. Then they write a description and then by Wednesday they predict what happens next in the story. LO and SC included on the plan.
Easy to edit and saves loads of time!
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!
These worksheets are differentiated for HA/MA/LA. The children have to look at the given number in red and they have to write one more and one less. Can be edited. LO and Success Criteria are given at the top of the worksheets to make marking easier.
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.
I made this worksheet for a lesson recognising the relationship between right angles and turns. The children have to identify the right angle and then work out how many right angles in turns e.g. 1/2 , 1/4, 3/4 and complete turns and then draw them. There are two worksheets which are differentiated and both have extension activities where they have to work out how many turns the right angle has moved! Th worksheets have the LO and SC to make the structure of the lesson and marking easier.
This is a six weeks medium term plan for Festivals / Celebrations Autumn 2 Term. This can be edited and will help many teachers out with what activities / teaching / assessment bands to focus upon this term. I wrote it all myself and was specific for my school and the books we were covering were also specifically chosen for this topic.
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 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 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!
These are differentiated worksheets for year one on repeated addition. They all have the LO and SC on the worksheets. Made in word so can be edited. These worksheets go with the smart notebook slide.
Will save loads of time! Enjoy.
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
This is a smart note book slide that I made for my lesson on introducing right angles to Year 3. I worked through each page and then gave them post-it notes to identify right angles within the classroom. After that they were given a tray of objects on their tables to see if they could identify and recognise any right angles. They completed the worksheet I gave them (which I will also upload) and then in the plenary we used the last page of the slide to extend their thinking and learning - a reasoning question. Will save plenty of time!
This week we have begun to introduce Reciprocal Reading to Y3. For the first session we did it as a whole class. First I handed out the picture that went with the story. We discussed it and came up with words which described the pictures and then predicted what the story was about.
Next we clarified any unknown words / phrases, encouraging the chn to ask questions to each other and then I gave them three question, a looking one (retrieval) and clue (inference) and then a thinking question - their opinion. Finally we summarised the passage using the key points.
The children loved this passage - it can be found online - COLD AS CLAY (from a book full of short scary stories) and the photo was of two people on a horse.
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!
