Memberships


For Teachers- Coming Soon!

Question: I’m a teacher. What do I get as a member?

As I member, you'll get access to:

1. Our Animated Tutorials for Students

Our animated tutorials cover the writing objectives from the UK National Curriculum for English. Our team of animators are currently working to create a tutorial for each and every KS1 and KS2 writing objective. New tutorials will be added weekly, with the aim of a full bank of tutorials by the end of the academic year 2020-2021. For an example of our tutorials and the independent tasks set or students, click here.

2. Continuous Professional Development for Teachers

Make your professional development targeted and continuous with our range of online courses. Covering areas of English such as scaffolding writing, poetry, story mapping and interleaving, our pre-recorded sessions can be accessed anytime, from anywhere. More courses to come- I’ll create as I learn- and you’ll have access to them all!

3. Displays, Retrieval and Memory Activities

If your school is teaching using interleaving, spacing and retrieval, then you’ll know all too well the relationship between memory and learning. As a member of Miss Tiffin’s Tales, you’ll have access to our bank of posters and activity cards, all of which cover the writing objectives from the UK National Curriculum for English. Use as memory prompts, for quizzes, transfer and retrieval activities.

4. Reading and Comprehension Packs

Our reading and comprehension packs are built around the UK National Curriculum units for English. Each one uses extracts, texts and models from our complete unit bundles to assess comprehension. They also include optional writing activities for every text. More packs to come, and you’ll have access to them all!

 5. Speaking and Listening Packs

Did you know that reading aloud is a great way to develop confidence and fluency in young readers? That's why I've started to create Speaking and Listening packs- a chance for children to take time away from their screens and desks. With play scripts designed for drama and presentation, these activities are a great way to engage young readers and facilitate classroom or family fun! Set your stage in the school hall, corridor, garden, kitchen or the living room! Then, choose your role and perform. Props and costumes are optional!

6. Home Learning for Students and Parents

For students and parents who wish to continue their learning over half-term breaks and holidays, look no further! In our home learning packs, you’ll find a five-day lesson planner; daily videos outlining tasks; PPTs for each lesson; and an independent activity for students. Use to extend or support classroom learning, or as a fun optional activity. More to come, and all for you!

7. Access to a Virtual Community 

As members, you'll be invited to virtual coffee mornings (or wine evenings) where we'll get together to cover topics such as planning, curriculum, behaviour management, CPD, online teaching, job applications and more. You'll also receive our newsletter with updates on latest resources and teaching strategies. There'll also be an opportunity to be featured on our website, should you wish to share a resource, an idea or a success story with the world!

Question: How much is the teacher membership?

The teacher membership is £39.99 per year.

Please note: Members will pay a one-off payment of £39.99, which will give you access to all of the above products for 12 months. There is no recurring subscription and there are no additional costs. We hope that you'll rejoin after your first 12 months, but we'll leave that decision completely to you!

Question: When can I join?

Our tech team are setting up the memberships as we speak! We aim to have this up and running by August 17th 2020. 

For Schools- Coming Soon!

Question: I’m a member of the Extended Leadership Team or I'm the the Literacy Lead in my Primary School. Why should we join Miss Tiffin's Tales?

Miss Tiffin's Tales aims to help member schools do the following:

1. Inspire your students to develop a true love of writing.

As the writing coordinator for my current school, one of my roles is to inspire our students to WANT to write. I'm talking about intrinsic motivation- the kind that makes students go home and write, simply for the love of writing. One of the ways we can do this is by planning inspiring lessons. Our unit bundles provide just that, and you'll have access to all of them.

2. Help you to develop learners who are confident in all areas of English, particularly writing.

Writing is challenging. FACT. 

Here are a few things that our students have to contend with whenever we ask them to write:

  • Handwriting, motor skills and presentation; 
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar;
  • Syntax and organisation; 
  • Creativity- can I make a text from scratch? 
  • Genre- what were the features of this text type again?
  • Maintaining the interest of the reader- is my content engaging?
  • Meeting individual targets- how can I meet these and make progress?

With our animated tutorials, retrieval practise packages and unit bundles, you'll find a whole host of strategies, resources and activities to inspire confidence in all of your learners, no matter where they are in their English journeys.

3. Support your teachers in their professional development.

Shared practice is the best practise. We all know that! As a member school, you'll have access to continuous professional development for your teachers and educators. Use the pre-recorded sessions to develop your recognised areas of improvement. Many more sessions to come! 

Question: I’m a member of the Extended Leadership Team or I'm the the Literacy Lead in my Primary School. If we join Miss Tiffin's Tales, what do we get?

AN ALL ACCESS PASS!

As a member school, you'll have access to EVERYTHING you see on the site! This includes all of the resources outlined above, plus:

The Unit Bundles for KS1 and KS2

Our bundles follow the UK National Curriculum units for English. They also include global concepts from the IB Primary Years Programme and topics from the International Primary Curriculum. Each one includes:

  • 4 weeks worth of planning;
  • An accompanying text pack to read and analyse in lessons;
  • PowerPoints for each lesson;
  • Differentiated resources for beginning, developing and mastering writers.

These bundles include everything your teachers need to deliver engaging and creative lessons, all of which have been planned using interleaving and spacing for optimum progress and development. They're a "pick up and teach" resource!

Our E-Books- Present and Future!

Miss Tiffin's Tales is currently publishing E-Books. Your school can use these for:

1. Guided Reading. Each book comes with a comprehension pack and ideas for classroom activities. 

2. Reading for Pleasure. Our books, complete with illustrations and child-friendly layouts, are designed to encourage young readers to read, read, read! Print for class reading, share the E-Book link or order hard copies for your school. 

3. To Supplement your English Units. As with our unit bundles, our E-Books are tailored to the UK National Curriculum units for English. For instance, if you're looking at adventures stories in English, then Location Zero can be read in tandem. 

At present, Location Zero, an adventure story for Years 3 and 4, is available to download. With the next three books waiting to be editing and printed, there is lots more to come! Watch this space...

Live Training Sessions for Teachers

Member schools will be given two FREE live training sessions- an opportunity for virtual CPD in English on a curriculum area of your choice. Choose one of the online course topics in our CPD library, or share your school's targets with us for a personalised session. We'll then set up a live webinar, at a time which is convenient for you, and provide CPD along with accompanying handouts and resources. 

Question: How much is the schools membership?

The teacher membership is £299 per year.

Please note: Members will pay a one-off payment of £299, which will give you access to everything. There is no recurring subscription and there are no additional costs. We hope that you'll rejoin after your first 12 months, but we'll leave that decision completely to you!

Question: When can I join?

Our tech team are setting up the memberships as we speak! We aim to have this up and running by August 17th 2020.
