Chocolate Brand Design D&T Project

(0)
During this project, children will be designing their own chocolate product from start to finish. After carrying out market research, they will choose their target audience. They will then generate many ideas before finalising a brand name, logo, slogan, product and USP (unique selling point.) With this in mind, they will then create a final design for their product’s packaging. Once the product has been created (and tasted!) they will complete an evaluation of it.

Fractions with Skittles

Fractions with Skittles

(0)
I created this to use with my class during a lesson on fractions. I wanted them to identify fractions and order fractions in ascending order but wanted to create a way for them to do this which had meaning and was exciting. Therefore, I provided each pair of children with a bag of skittles which they then used to complete the worksheet. The children found this extremely engaging!

Book Review Project

For World Book Day, our school are completing a whole school project of completing a collection of book reviews. Each child will choose their favourite book and will complete an A4 page review. We will be using this PDF as inspiration for the children to give them ideas and to set a standard. This poster also includes ideas for what they could/should include in their review. We’re so excited to put the reviews into a book and to display it in our school library!

Use this fractions poster to consolidate learning. Children to choose a fraction and then complete the circle of activities based around their chosen fraction: numerator, denominator, fraction as a shape, fraction as a quantity, written in words and the fraction needed to add to total 1 whole. My class loved this activity and often refer to their posters when recapping fractions.
'I am reading' display cards

'I am reading' display cards

(1)
Simply edit the names and then print these cards off onto coloured paper of your choice and display as desired. This is a great way to monitor what your children are reading and for them to see which books each other are reading too. I will get the children to stick new post-it notes on top of old ones which will then create a reading-log in itself. Both myself and my TA’s have a card too as we want to join in the fun and the kids love seeing which books we’re reading!

English Planning for The High Street by Alice Melvin

Included is a series of 10 English lessons based on The High Street by Alice Melvin. Throughout the lessons, children will learn about and apply their learning of nouns, adjectives, determiners, lists and rhyming words. By the end of the project, each child will have created their own version of The High Street zig-zag book. This pack included all of my lesson plans for these ten lessons as well as copies of each resource needed. I absolutely loved planning this and hope you enjoy the series of lessons.

Four in a Row Addition Game

(0)
A fun activity where children can consolidate their learning and understanding on addition. I have created three differentiated game sheets. Taking it in turns, choose a calculation to complete. Work it out on a whiteboard and if you get the correct answer, you can place a counter over the calculation. The first person to get 4 counters in row horizontally, vertically or diagonally wins. Every child I’ve played this game with have really enjoyed it!
Annual Reading Tracker/Log

Annual Reading Tracker/Log

(0)
An annual reading tracker to be completed by anyone to track the books read over the year. Simply colour in a book from the stack from the current month and colour it in and label it to look like the spine of the book you’ve just read. A great way to remember the books you’ve enjoyed over time and a great reward strategy for less enthusiastic readers! Enjoy :)
Spelling Loyalty Card

Spelling Loyalty Card

(0)
Each child receives a loyalty card with their name on and their own personalised target for their weekly spelling tests e.g. ‘to get at least 10 spellings correct,’ ‘to get full marks.’ (There is an allocated section on the card where each child’s target can be written.)Each time the child then meets their target they can add a sticker to their honeycomb collection on the reverse side of the card. Once they’ve received 6 stickers they receive a prize. (I have a box of small prizes including pencils, rubbers, stickers etc). Whilst the resource motivates children to succeed on their spelling test it also recognises the range of needs in each class and the need for differentiation regarding the words set and their targets. A great reward! My class are extremely driven by it.
