I’m trying to move as much of my planning and organisation online, is there a way to use these in Google Docs?

Tenielle Bailey · Jul 7th, 2020

Paul (Teach Starter)

Hi Tenielle,

PDFs and Word docs can be uploaded into Google Docs. A quick query (e.g. how to put a pdf into google docs) using your preferred search engine should provide plenty of suggested sites and videos explaining how it can be done. If you need any follow-up advice or have any questions, please contact us at [email protected]

I would love this for my year six group. Many of them fall well below the level we’d like them to be. They need careful, intensive work, and this would be a godsend!

I group my students according to focus, therefore their groups are changing on a daily basis. Is there a way to integrate the template to allow fluid groupings?

Hi Lauren,

I love this resource! Can this resource be edited to use the watercolour background instead of the current squiggles?

Open the document in Word, click “Enable Editing” that should appear under the menu. Then right click on the image and click “Change Picture” and choose your image and resize as required. (Google “Free Watercolour Textures” if you need some images).
