Download the free overviews

Each PlanBee scheme of work comes with a free overview, like a medium-term plan, that shows: 
  • the learning objective for each lesson
  • a brief description of what the children will learn and do in each lesson
  • the three assessment questions for each lesson
  • the resources needed, including those provided by PlanBee (such as challenge cards or information sheets) and those you will need to source yourself (such as equipment for Science experiments) 
You can find these free overviews in the 'Free Additional Resources' tab on each product page.

Download the free assessment grids

Each PlanBee scheme of work also has an editable assessment grid which lists each assessment question from the lessons and provides a flexible way to keep track of progress and understanding. 

Type children's names directly into the fields and choose a method of recording whether or not they have achieved each point. You could use a simple Y/N system or come up with your own system to show whether they have achieved, are near achieving or have exceeded the learning point. It's totally flexible. 

Along with the overviews mentioned above, you will find these assessment grids in the 'Free Additional Resources' tab on the product pages.
