Great posters and ways to explain negative numbers. Plenty of practice material too.
The children were enthralled by the Banners and have really responded with interest to the activities completed so far. Thank you.
Wow! This was the pack I was always waiting for and I have not been disappointed. The types of poems is especially useful for teaching poetry and getting the children to enjoy it at the same time. This pack has all the resources to not only help in teaching poetry effectively but for display to back up your lessons.Well done Mark and Helen! I love it!
As always the presentation of this is outstanding.What is disappointing is the lack of either scaffolding or space for students to show their working out- especially when it comes to calculating Area of shapes/compound shapes.It is important we demonstrate how kids should set out their workegIf a child is asked to calculate the area of a triangle, there should be 3 lines of working out1. A line for the formula (this helps reinforce this knowledge into long term for the individual through repetition)2.A line for students to substitute the numbers3. The answer with correct unitsJust my thoughts - I appreciate others may not mind if things are not so structuredAlternativelyAllow us the ability to edit the work sheets once they have been downloaded.That way we can set play with the structure and formulae ourselves.EgI prefer to teach area of squares/rectangles asbase times heightthis then assists with leading intoarea of a triangle is a half times base times heightThis can also be demonstrated for the students visually through drawing a square/rectangle drawing a diagonal and cutting creating triangles-allowing the students to realise you are only using half a square/rectangle.CheesDimi
Thanks for this feedback Dimi. We will definitely take this into account as we make future packs and update existing ones.
As we explore the stages of narrative writing, I put up the associated poster and encourage students to use the displayed information as a guideline for their own writing. Bright and colourful, the posters are easy to read.
