Ofsted - today and tomorrow!!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by analouise50, Dec 12, 2011.

  1. I work in a first school and can you believe on Thursday last week we got the dreaded call!! (It was our performance day!) Anyway in they came this morning and although a dreadful time of year and having to delay christmas for the children (party's) etc it hasn't been too bad. I had a great Lit lesson this morning kept it speaking and listening and based around Santa, as I was worried the kids may not produce as they are 8 and tired!

    Tomorrow is another day and although I think if they do come to observe me it will be in maths, I would quite like to plan something Christmasy. Has anybody got any nice Christmas Literacy ideas for year 3

    All help appreciated x

  3. Maybe designing a christmas word search. Or a shape poem to do with Christmas. Or they choose a poem (acrostic/shape/rhyming etc) and put together a collection of christmas poems to give to the year 2 class? sorry - its too late for me to be too creative but hope this might help. I teach year 3 as well and my class love doing things for the lower classes.

  5. I had OFSTED a week or so ago and I did a lesson on multiplication using 'stamps on our Christmas letters/parcels' as the context. Children had to choose certain amounts of 2, 3, 4, 5, 10p stamps (could be other amounts for Y3, mine are Y2) and work out/record as a multiplication.

    Have you tried Primary Resources - search Christmas Maths?
    I got some really nice sheets about Christmas budgeting and things from there...
