Help with Year 3/4 planning

Discussion in 'Primary' started by rtay, Aug 7, 2011.

  1. Hi, I'll be starting my NQT year in September teaching a 3/4 class. The school hasn't given me any long/medium plans to work from. How should I go about planning for at least the first two weeks? Any suggestions (especially for Literacy and Maths)? Thank you.

  4. Have been in Year 3/4 for a year now and still trying to work it out! Basically for Literacy I just have a 2 year rolling programme where I teach to Year 3/4 objectives accordingly (although I don't necessarily stick to the framework rigidly). I don't teach to the children's year groups, but to their abilities. Maths is a little harder because of the different objectives, but again I try to teach to ability rather than year groups. Will hunt out the mixed age objectives I managed to find on-line, there are quite a few that are helpful. If you have any questions etc that you need answers to, feel free to PM me - not saying I'll have the answers, but I'll help where I can.
     
  5. Thank you both! Will definitely been needing your help jumpingStarfish. I've checked out both websites but not so sure where to start and how. For literacy, should I go ahead and plan for Narrative: Stories with familiar settings for the first two weeks? I have a few more year 3s than 4s but I don't know what level they are at. Was in school for a few days and have been asking them about the plans but didn't get anything in the end :( I guess end of term wasn't the best time to go in.
     
  6. Poor you! It's bad enough being an NQT without knowing what you should be teaching. I teach Y 3/4 and have a 2 year rolling programme for Literacy. It's difficult to know where to start if you you dont know what your topics are going to be. I teach stories with historical settings when we do Egyptians, stories from other cultures when we do rainforests etc. I would say stories with familiar settings is a good starter I usually do this 1st thing in September but its all change this year as we've gone all "creative" the book I use is "I'll take you to Mrs Cole" a lovely picture book so usually at the right level for the young ones coming up from KS1.
    I would suggest investing in Hamilton Trust and the 100 framework lessons for maths as time savers while you get on your feet - before anyone jumps down my throat NO I do not teach them as they are I always adapt to the needs of my class but unfortunately the poster doesnt know her class yet.
    If you want to leave your email address I might be able to point you in the right direction with a few things.
     
  7. Hi, I have just finished my nqt year and I completely feel for you. Firstly, in the first few days it's about getting ti know your class, so I suggest lots of pshe lessons. Secondly, do you have a theme? Or do you know what lasts years teacher dud in the autumn term.
    Send me your email I can send you my getting to know you plans for the first few days and maybe help you with some plans.
