Introducing the Teacher’s PAL Toolkit (Edition 3)

What’s new in The Teacher’s PAL Toolkit (Edition 3)?

The new Teacher’s PAL Toolkit (Edition 3) now provides even more support to make teaching more effective and to improve children’s writing. The Teacher’s PAL is a comprehensive toolkit which supports planning, teaching and assessing writing. The PAL now provides termly objectives helping teachers to decide exactly what to teach and when to teach it!

Schools already using the Teacher’s PAL (Edition 3) report that it also improves teacher subject knowledge of grammar and punctuation and it has a proven impact on application of grammatical skills into children’s extended writing.

What is unique about the Teacher’s PAL?

The Teacher’s PAL Toolkit is a downloadable planning, teaching and assessment toolkit which includes:

  • a set of unique objectives which simplify the challenge of differentiation and accelerate progress
  • small steps in teaching and learning so that pupils and teachers experience success
  • a simple approach to ongoing assessment for learning that will feed into current assessment systems
  • an opportunity to see progress throughout the year towards end-of-year/end of Key Stage expectations
  • exemplar non-fiction texts (WAGOLLs) which save time, support subject knowledge and demonstrate progression in non-fiction writing
  • text type guidance to support subject knowledge.
What is unique about the Teacher’s PAL termly objectives?

The Teacher’s PAL termly objectives were written by experienced English consultants who work with teachers every day and understand the challenges faced in today’s classrooms.  The termly objectives are unique in that they:

  • cover teaching and learning from Reception to Y6
  • break down the end-of-year statutory requirements for each year group into smaller steps that can be taught across the three terms
  • provide clear expectations to ensure progression from term to term and year to year
  • support teachers to make informed decisions about what to teach and when to teach it
  • ensure that skills are revisited and built upon, term after term and year after year
  • link to age-related expectations – ELG for Writing, optional Year 2 standards and statutory end of KS2 standards
  • include the requirements from Appendix 2 and from the Programmes of Study for Writing
  • break down the combined statutory requirements for Y3/4 and for Y5/6 into year-specific termly objectives
  • cover the full range of writing skills – vocabulary, sentence and composition
  • include requirements for the application of spelling and handwriting skills
  • provide clear examples with each objective to support teacher subject knowledge of grammar and punctuation
  • support differentiation and challenge
  • fill in the gaps for aspects of writing that are not explicitly referenced in some year groups
  • provide oral language objectives for Reception that feed into early writing skills
  • support transition from EYFS into Year One, especially for those children who do not achieve GLD.
What do you get?

An easy-to-use toolkit which provides:

  • termly objectives for Reception to Year 6
  • ongoing assessment grids for Year 1 to Year 6
  • non-fiction exemplar texts (WAGOLLs) for Reception to Year 7
  • non-fiction text type guidance
  • ‘how to use‘ guidance.
What is unique about the Teacher’s PAL non-fiction exemplars?

The Teacher’s PAL writing exemplars are unique because they demonstrate what ‘Greater Depth’ would look like in year-appropriate non-fiction text types. The exemplars are designed to:

    • support teachers’ subject knowledge
    • inform differentiation and understanding of progression
    • demonstrate ‘mastery’ of skills across an appropriate range of text types for each year group
    • demonstrate ‘What A Good One Looks Like’ (WAGOLL)
    • inform effective modelling of writing
    • support children’s understanding of key language and structural features
    • act as a model for teachers to create similar exemplars of their own.
How much will the Teacher’s PAL Toolkit cost?

The Teacher’s PAL is always priced competitively so that schools receive good value for money.  However, at present it is available until the end of the financial year at the ‘budget-friendly’ cost of £300 plus VAT. The Toolkit is only sold as a whole school toolkit (provided via email). Please contact us for more information or please use the form below to order your Teacher’s PAL Toolkit.

Will there be any support provided to introduce the Teacher’s PAL in school?

Training can be provided (via Zoom) to your English Subject Lead to equip them with the necessary skills, knowledge and training materials to introduce the Teacher’s PAL toolkit to staff. Alternatively, we can provide whole school training to ensure the Teacher’s PAL is successfully adopted by your school. A handy reference User Guide will also be provided.

    I am especially delighted with the impact of Debs’ work on our SATs results in Y2 and Y6.  A vital ingredient of this success was the introduction of the Online Teacher’s PAL.  Teachers now know exactly what to teach to ensure that children move on in their learning.  Assessment of writing is now more accurate and supports good progress throughout the school.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Jane and BCED.  Jane has been an excellent mentor and has guided me to become successful in my role as English co-ordinator.  Jane has helped our school turn our writing around and create a streamlined, creative approach which has had huge impact on our SATS scores.  Our school now has an exciting, successful and creative writing system which has inspired pupils and staff! The use of the Teacher’s PAL has had huge success – this ensures teachers are using a clear teaching sequence, the children are pushed and also SEN are catered for.
