Lesson plans for supply teachersA very short list (so far) of mixed year group, emergency, resource-free, lesson plans… More to come, but if this isn’t enough, please do browse the rest of SupplyBag.co.uk where you will find hundreds of year group specific one-liner lesson plans!

Before using these plans, please make every effort to follow any that have been left, talk to the children and other staff. These are meant for emergencies only, when you have been called in at short notice and have no other choice. They are however, based on the curriculum, and so you can use them with confidence.

Resource-Free Lesson Plans for Numeracy

As a supply teacher, you may worry that no work will be left for you when you arrive in school. Even on a pre-booked day! I have found these fears to be largely unjustified, yet all the same, it’s good to have something up your sleeve – it can happen!

These one-liner Numeracy lessons plans are intended to be used as a prompt when no planning has been left for you as a supply teacher. They are relevant to the Primary Framework for Numeracy announced in October 2006. They are not intended to be replacements for full lesson plans, and no liability can be accepted by us if you decide to use them. They are mainly from the top of NuttySupplier’s head.

Work is split into year groups, and then further split into blocks as defined below:

  • Block A – Counting, partitioning and calculating
  • Block B – Securing number facts, understanding shape
  • Block C – Handling data and measures
  • Block D – Calculating, measuring and understanding shape
  • Block E – Securing number facts, relationships and calculating

In the Primary Framework, Blocks are intended to last 6-9 weeks work. Each Block includes objectives from Using and Applying Mathematics, plus two or three objectives from the other core strands.

The strands of learning objectives are:

  • Using and applying mathematics
  • Counting and understanding number
  • Knowing and using number facts
  • Calculating
  • Understanding shape
  • Measuring
  • Handling data

New to supply teaching? You may have a constant worry that no planning will be left for you, in an unfamiliar school, with eager children. It doesn’t happen that often, and I believe it doesn’t ever have to happen, but I won’t get on my soap box now about it!

These one-line emergency Science lessons plans are intended to be used as a prompt when no planning has been left for you as a supply teacher. They are not intended to be replacements for full lesson plans, and no liability can be accepted by us if you decide to use them. They are mainly from the top of NuttySupplier’s head. Work is split into year groups, and then further split into the Science Scheme of Work units.

Science doesn’t have to be practical. If no resources are left for you, you could pop outside at lunchtime and see what you could find to help you along, such as fallen leaves. However, faced with no science lesson plans, no Head would expect you to produce an all-singing, all-dancing interactive lesson, so don’t beat yourself up over it! Do try and make it memorable for the children in some way though… Think kinaesthetic. Get the children out of their seats, to the front of the class, pretending to be kettles, hair-dryers etc., not just listening to you talking about them!

Not often do you walk into a school as a supply teacher, and find that no planning has been left for you. But it does happen sometimes. And, especially if you are new to supply teaching, it can throw you / terrify you / send you running to the door! Never fear:

These one-liner Literacy lessons plans are intended to be used as a prompt when no planning has been left for you as a supply teacher. They are relevant to the Primary Framework for Literacy announced in October 2006. They are not intended to be replacements for full lesson plans, and no liability can be accepted by us if you decide to use them. They are mainly from the top of NuttySupplier’s head.

Emergency, Resource-Free Lesson Plans for Literacy

In the Primary Framework for Literacy, literacy is organised into three main blocks:

  • Narrative/Plays/Scripts
  • Non-Fiction
  • Poetry

I have labelled the supply teacher’s ideas below accordingly, and also included word and sentence level work in relation to the old Literacy Strategy, placed within terms in year groups.

The learning objectives within the Primary Framework for Literacy are as follows:

  • Speaking
  • Listening and responding
  • Group discussion, interaction
  • Drama
  • Word structure and spelling
  • Understand and interpret texts
  • Engage with, respond to texts
  • Creating and shaping texts
  • Text structure and organization
  • Sentence structure, punctuation
  • Presentation

As you will see from the supply teacher ideas below, I have followed a further breakdown of the Blocks for each year group in order to make the lesson plans more relevant.

Year 6 Emergency Lesson Plans for DT

Lesson plans for supply teachersThese emergency lesson plans for Year 6 DT are only to be used by supply teachers who are faced with no planning or easily accessible resources. Also to be used following the guidance notes here.

 

Topic Lesson Plan
Shelters Design on paper, a tent to be used in an unusual place. Maybe the ground is concrete and therefore you cannot use conventional pegs? Maybe the ground is continually moving (water?) and pegs cannot be used? Perhaps it is to be used in a very hot/cold place, so insulating materials need to be used? Perhaps it is for use near a vampire's lair, and so the material needs a regular infusion of garlic!
Slippers Design a set of slippers for an animal. Why might they need slippers – injured feet/prevent infection/temperature change underfoot? With the purpose in mind, design the slippers thinking of size, warmth, safety and appearance. (Good plenary point: Do the animals care about the appearance?)
Fairground/Controllable Vehicles Make a list of buildings which use devices such as electrical motors/levers/pulleys (hospitals, schools, bakeries, police stations, supermarkets). Choose one of these buildings and brainstorm all the ways in which the devices are used. Decide what sort of sensor the devices are activated by: light sensor, pressure pads, push button switches, time sensor, temperature sensor etc. Why are these sensors the best ones for the job? What would happen if the devices had their sensors swapped? Think of their own design for a fairground ride/controllable vehicle, and decide what sort of sensor would be best suited for their model.

Year 5 Emergency Lesson Plans for DT

Lesson plans for supply teachersThese emergency lesson plans for Year 5 DT are only to be used by supply teachers who are faced with no planning or easily accessible resources. Also to be used following the guidance notes here.

 

Topic Lesson Plan
Musical Instruments Design a musical garden for the school. If you were allowed to use any natural material, how would you plan it? Different lengths of branches for a wooden xylophone hanging below the bridge over the pond so the ducks could play it? Shells stung between the trees as on a washing line to catch the wind and whistle?
Bread/Biscuits Focus on health and safety. Children to design a poster. Draw someone in the kitchen breaking all the rules, e.g. hair hanging down, unwashed hands, uncovered wounds and a cat sat at the far end of the chopping board watching.
Moving Toys Think of an everyday toy with moving parts, imagine it made of different materials. Chart the advantages and disadvantages of it being created using different materials e.g. paper, cling film, aluminium foil, wool, fur, wood, tissue and cardboard.
