How inclusive are your pupil assessments?

With the rise in the expected level of attainment for primary schools and the hike in GCSE grades in secondary, the new assessment landscape means that many more children could be slipping below required progress.

However, the Climbing Frames assessment framework, with its unique Pre-levels, means that schools can track progress for children who will be below the new National Curriculum attainment levels.

These Pre-levels make the system a truly inclusive system.

Achievement for all

In fact, leading education charity Achievement For All has given Climbing Frames assessment framework its seal of approval, calling it the “best of breed” of the new pupil progress assessment frameworks.

Professor Sonia Blandford, CEO of Achievement For All says:

“We have seen a large number of systems, and Climbing Frames is by far the best of breed. Its Pre-levels – for those children caught below the start of the new National Curriculum – and its cognitive development framework show how well thought out it is. We would recommend our schools to subscribe.”

Here’s why you too should choose Climbing Frames:

  • It’s the only inclusive scheme, reaching pupils working below NC levels, and is recommended by Achievement for All
  • It covers all NC subjects and Key Stages 1, 2 and 3
  • It’s more sensitive than its forerunner, APP, for triggering interventions and evaluating impact
  • The cost has been kept low to support the future of assessment for learning
  • It works on paper and as an App, and all this is part of the price
  • It provides a full range of management information for school leaders
  • It assesses cognitive development and links to expert teaching strategy

6 ways we’ll help you track progress

You can read up on the six ways that Climbing Frames will help your school track pupil progress, as well as place an order, here: http://www.teachingtimes.com/articles/climbingframeshh

I look forward to hearing from you

Is there a way musical composition can be made simple and fun for KS2 children? And predictable and easy to teach for non-specialist staff?

Perhaps the first problem with engaging KS2 children with creative musical activities is that of designing activities that the children will find engaging and which can fit readily into the classroom.

But there is also a further problem, for these activities need to be managed in some way so that children do not create music that is too difficult to perform or doesn’t sound good.

In short the children, and the teachers delivering the lesson, need to be protected from the risk of their creativity getting lost in the wide range of choices that the children are not yet equipped to make and ending unsatisfactorily.

Otherwise the actual lesson may end up being – for both student and teacher – music creativity is too hard for us!

Put another way, the creative input needs to be retained but the creative process needs to be managed in specific ways to guarantee successful outcomes for students and teachers.

In considering this, many teachers are finding that the solution is to present the children initially with limited choices, in a pre-determined workflow, so that the number of decisions they have to make in creating their music is managed making the outcomes predictably successful. This then unlocks all of the positive benefits of creativity in the classroom.

When children are able to approach creativity in this more controlled way, and are immediately able to listen to, and make changes to, what they have composed, they inevitably become enthused by their own creativity and this drives further learning. For example they will want to learn to play their compositions on real instruments.

The ABC ‘Create With Pitch’ Composer is an on-line interactive app which does exactly this, allowing pupils to choose the sounds they want to use, but then guiding them through a series of steps to create really effective simple compositions that they can realistically then learn to play and perform.

You can try this ‘Create With Pitch’ interactive for yourself here.

Probably the best way forward is to start with the “Show me how” button on the left. Once you have seen how it works you can engage the children in creating their own short pieces while allowing them to grow their compositions in a very controlled way.

If you are as impressed as we think you will be, you can sign up for a free trial course, and you will be able to see how you can use this tool both in IT suites and on an interactive whiteboard in your classroom.

ABC also provide a neat way to manage the range of tuned percussion you have available to make sure children are composing for a set of instruments they will have available to then play their compositions on.

Germany’s Rhine-Ruhr Region – where and what?

The Rhine Ruhr Region, named after the two rivers Rhine and Ruhr, is a metropolitan centre like no other and, with 18 million residents within a 40 mile radius and 148 million people within a 300 mile radius, the third largest in Europe after London and Paris. It is located in Germany’s Federal State North-Rhine Westphalia, right next to the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

Why is it great for travelers? There is no urban centre around which this region grew. Instead, there are 53 connected cities, all next to each other, but each with its own personality. The best known among these cities are major travel destinations like Cologne, Düsseldorf, and the former capital Bonn. Being able to explore so many cities and attractions quickly due to short distances and a superior infrastructure is just one piece of what makes the Rhine Ruhr Region a fascinating new destination for student groups and activity-centered travel.

Specials:

To Cologne by train with Deutsche Bahn – travel from London St Pancras to the heart of Cologne in just 4:15h!

A journey by train from London St. Pancras to Cologne’s city centre is the quickest and most comfortable option available to both groups and individuals alike.

Wherever you go, groups of 6 people or more reap the benefits of DB Bahn’s attractive group travel offers. For our International School Trips and Youth Group options, please call our dedicated School & Youth Trips booking line here in the UK on +44 (0) 844 477 2003 or take a look at our website for booking enquiries and more information.

Bonn, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Duisburg – some of the best destinations for student travel:

Bonn – Headliner on the stage of world history with small-town charm
Germany’s former capital Bonn can be easily underestimated, but it’s a dynamite destination for any student group. Not only does it have many attractions like the Beethoven House, the “Poppeldorfer Schloss” and the ”Rheinaue” amusement park, but the city also features 22 museums, including the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany, and House of History – something for every age and taste.

Cologne – a city with a strong heart and a good pulse
A visit to Germany’s fourth largest metropolis is like time travel through 2,000 years of city history. Cologne was vibrant during its intense Roman and Medieval past, and it is still buzzing today with the spirit of creativity and modern life. You’ll find testimony to the city’s productive past and present in many of its cultural attractions, like the Odysseum Adventure Museum, the Museum of Scent, the German Sport and Olympia Museum, and many amazing production and performance sites for international and local-flavor theater, movies, and film. In fact, Cologne has evolved into one of Germany’s culture and media capitals.

Düsseldorf – Young, stylish and alive
Düsseldorf is full of surprises and unexpected attractions. Not only is the city the capital of federal state North-Rhine Westphalia, but it’s also one of Europe’s art and fashion capitals. The view from the city’s tallest structure, the Rhine Tower at almost 800 feet, lets you see many of the big attractions such as the “dancing houses” designed by Frank O. Gehry at the Medienhafen (Media Harbor), or circular Parliament Building, and the city’s history Old Town.

Duisburg and the Ruhr Region – A goldmine of the extraordinary
Duisburg is a city unlike any other destination – its wealth of undiscovered attractions is like walking into an unassuming store and finding it filled with unexpected treasure. It has Europe’s largest Inner Harbor and it has evolved from a city of industry to a mecca for cultural travel and leisure in unique settings.

BMI launches new flight from Bristol to Düsseldorf Airport (DUS)
The Rhineland is easy to reach from the UK by coach, train, and plane. A new BMI flight between Bristol and Düsseldorf Airport adds even more convenient options.The new service from Bristol to DUS commences on 27 April and will operate six times a week from Sunday – Friday.

Session 1

Production case studies – two presentations, one looking at the production process of the blockbuster ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ with producer Iain Smith, and the more specialised British film ‘Suffragette’.

Session 2

The art of distribution – again, looking at both ‘Mad Max – Fury Road’ and ‘Suffragette’, senior executives from Warner Bros and Pathé will show, among other things, how they define the potential audience for a film, develop an advertising campaign as well as other promotions around a film.

Mark Batey, Chief Executive of the Film Distributors’ Association (FDA) will provide the introduction to the session. The FDA is celebrating its centenary this year.

Session 3

The future of cinema

Is cinema dying? How do audiences currently consume film and what does the future hold? A panel of industry experts will discuss what the future holds for film and the ways in which they see film being consumed in the future.

Amongst the speakers will be senior executives from Curzon Cinemas discussing their innovative responses to the challenges and opportunities facing cinema operators whilst Geraldine Moloney, a long serving consultant to the film industry, will provide an overview of the changing content protection landscape.

Regular updates will be made as more speakers and their presentation topics are finalised.

Learning times tables is a process

Why times tables are what they are
and form as they do

Learning times tables is a process made up of three distinct steps.

Step one involves understanding why times tables are what they are and form as they do.

Step two identifies the patterns of each; and step three involves using these patterns to remember and recite times tables confidently.

And it is very often the case that pupils who find reciting their times tables difficult have not fully understood why times tables are what they are and form as they do.

In short, they have missed out step one.

It is for this reason that Topical Resources has developed Practise Your Times Tables – a series of photocopiable activity books suitable for pupils in year 2 through to year 6.

The activities for each times table are non-repetitive, and the children can relate to the themes of animals, football, cricket, outer space, etc, that frequent the worksheets. The varied activities and themes allow the children to be engaged with their times tables at all levels.

The worksheets also enable the children to develop a greater understanding of times tables, encouraging them to manipulate numbers accordingly, learning why they are what they are and why they form as they do.

The books are divided into four stages and are also available as CDs or downloads if you’d prefer.

Practising Your Times Tables – Stage 1 covers multiples of 2, 5 and 10.

Practising Your Times Tables – Stage 2 covers multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10.

Practising Your Times Tables – Stage 3 covers multiples up to 10 x 10.

Practising Your Times Tables – Stage 4 covers multiples up to 12 x 12.

Sample pages are available from our website at the web links above.

If you would like to know more please call us on 01772 863158 or email us at sales@topical-resources.co.uk

Enjoyment of maths leading to a sense of achievement is all that is needed to deliver good grades.

For the last six months, I have been working on two texts to deliver the new Higher Tier GCSE Maths syllabus.

You can view/download FIVE TOPICS from the Y10 Sureshot text from
the Jugglers’ website.
The link is
www.mathsisjugglers.com/GCSE-text-samples

The sample topics are:

Topic 1: Number Techniques
Topic 2: Functions, Sequences and Proof
Topic 4: Pythagoras and Trigonometry
Topic 6: Measuring Likelihood
Topic 7: Fractions, Decimals, Percentages and Ratios

Although some items that appear on the screen are in colour, the books are printed in black and white.

Publication date for the Y10 book is June 5th 2015. The cost of each text is £16

Schools who order 30 or more copies will receive a free copy of the Teachers’ Resources.

The other topics in the Y10 Sureshot book are:
Topic 3: Transformations, Shapes, Areas and Volumes
Topic 5: Expressions and Equations
Topic 8: Graphs
Topic 9: Arcs, Areas, Volumes and Formulae
Topic 10: Analysing Statistics
Topics 9 & 10 are also in the Y11 Sureshot text, giving teachers flexibility.
Topic 1 must be done first, but all the other topics are standalone.

These two texts have a different approach to most other maths books. They are also full of mathematics that students love to work with.

The students who will take the Higher Level GCSE maths course will have a wide range of abilities. So, the material must include a structured development of all the basic techniques. It is up to each student to decide, in consultation with the teacher, how much/little (s)he needs to do of each basic exercise. So, what’s new?

Students are also given the opportunity to tackle EXTENSION PROBLEMS. They should be encouraged to try as many as they can find time for. These are interesting and, often, unusual. The most able students should aim to do them all, if possible. These develop students’ skills beyond the standard type of questions.

As far as it is possible, questions will involve real situations and data and, occasionally, some mythical situations and/or data. Puzzles pop up every so often.
Some examples are:
Standard Form: This uses a lot of real data (see pages 35-40 in Topic 1)
Sequence Challenges: (see pages 64-66 in Topic 2)
Hadrian’s wall: (see page 121 in Topic 4)
Miscellaneous Challenges (see p189 in Topic 6)
Percentage Problems (see p214-222 in Topic 7)
Beat The Teacher (see p17 in Topic 6: I often played this unfair game with Y8 or Y9 students. Here, GCSE students are asked to produce a fair version.)

Mapping out 2015

What is the busiest time of the year in your school?

Of course, the answer to this question varies from school to school. Sports week, the first week of the September term, the run up to Christmas… these are all incredibly busy times.

Take that last mentioned period – the run up to Christmas. Now I appreciate that you are not thinking about Christmas yet, when we haven’t even had the summer, but consider this…

Supposing the opportunity came along for a group of West End performers to come to your school and perform a pantomime in your school hall in December this year.

Two things immediately would have to be arranged. First, you’d need to make sure that the performers are indeed free on the day you want them. And second, you’d need to make sure that no one else was using the school hall on that day.

I mention all this because each year we find that both problems arise, and some schools that really would like us to visit are unable to arrange for West End in Schools to perform to their children either because we are fully booked or because the school facilities are booked.

And that takes us back to why I am writing about Christmas in May.

Our engaging pantomime performances take place in your school hall with West End actors who act, sing, dance, and engage fully with the children.

This year we are offering a choice of three Pantomime performances; Aladdin, Cinderella, and our new production, Jack & the Beanstalk.

Whichever pantomime you choose, not only will the children be impressed, but so will their parents be when they find that West End actors have been in the school performing to the children.

Furthermore, we also provide a free sing-along soundtrack in advance to help you make the most of the performance both before and after.

You can find more details on our website.

To reserve the best dates or to ask any questions about our work and our productions, please either:

There is never a good time

The worst time for a school minibus to breakdown

There is never a good time for a vehicle to break down, but when a school minibus breaks down whilst carrying a group of excitable children, it is perhaps the worst time.

Which is why it is so important that the school minibus receives regular services, because without them the probability of it breaking down is naturally much higher.

But there are a number of valid reasons why a school minibus may be overdue a service, with the most common being that the school’s budget will not cover it this time around and that staff haven’t had the time to organise it.

When you lease a minibus from Benchmark Leasing a full maintenance programme is included, so no matter the outcome of the vehicle’s services and MOTs, the cost of repairs won’t affect the lease price.

It is an arrangement which makes it possible for schools to fund the minibus through a small payment each month, which has the added benefit of improved budgeting and cash flow.

And in some cases, where trips are paid for by contributions from parents and the PTA, it is possible to allocate a part of those payments towards the cost of the minibus – reducing the funds being deducted from the school’s capital account.

What’s more, leasing has proven time and time again to be cheaper than buying a minibus outright (especially if one takes into account the re-sale value of a school bus at the end of its working life) or hiring a coach each time.

For more information about leasing a minibus with Benchmark you can go to our website, call us on 01753 859944 or email minibus@benchmarkleasing.co.uk

How best to help EAL pupils and students

What is the most effective way of working with pupils who have English as an additional language?

Students who have English as an additional language now form a majority in one in nine schools in the UK; the number has risen by 20% during the last five years.

Many schools estimate that it takes about a half term for the average EAL pupil to gain sufficient working knowledge of English for them to move into the mainstream classroom, while spending time with the intervention teacher each day.

However, although this seems a simple process there are many issues that arise, ranging from the exact legal requirements in terms of dealing with these pupils through to the best approach for induction and admission of these new arrivals.

There are also issues of engaging with the parents, the question of which teaching and learning strategies are the most effective, and the support and encouragement that should be given to more advanced EAL learners.

Indeed, many schools are now asking what a good induction programme looks like. Indeed when it comes to EAL is one approach as good as another?

This matter was highlighted by the publication of the New Arrivals Excellence Programme which was issued in 2007 and represents a summary of best practice in EAL in the country. It includes case studies and does give a clear source of information on what schools can do in relation to EAL students.

This is not to say that there is a single process and approach which every school should follow, but it is often felt that it is helpful for schools to consider a range of approaches when thinking about their EAL students.

From the sort of approach adopted come the appropriate teaching and learning strategies, and indeed the role of the EAL Coordinator who can ensure that the plan that the school has developed is being followed at each turn, and that any gaps in learning and performance between EAL language pupils and students and those who have English as their first language are narrowed and ultimately removed.

These are the issues examined in the new extensive volume The EAL Coordinator’s Manual. The 170 page volume comes in copiable form so that it can shared with any members of staff in the school who work with EAL students.
