Do We need to be Perfect? An assembly for Lower Primary School Age range

Do We need to be Perfect? An assembly for Lower Primary School Age range

It starts to cover that it is OK not to be perfect. Flaws and imperfections have their uses too! IMPORTANT The license for using this assembly in your own class is £3, but if you wish to use this resource for a whole school assembly you will need to purchase the school license. If you like this assembly and are looking for others for throughout the school year, you will find it more economical to purchase themes from Mirrorassemblies.co.uk where your school can subscribe to any number of themes for periods from one term to 5 years. This will allow you access to all new assembly materials added to that theme or those themes instantly. Mirror Assemblies also provide ready-made assemblies including scripts presentations and linked music in the form of a presentation which encourages thought and reflection as a warm-up for the main part of the assembly.

There is a twist in this story.

PSHE lesson plan- words can hurt

PSHE lesson plan- words can hurt

This is a tried and tested lesson plan for KS2 (but can also work for KS1) about how unkind words can have a lasting effect. At first reading it seems a little cheesy but I’ve used it with some pretty streetwise Y6 pupils and they loved it! The focus is on empathy and understanding the lasting damage a throwaway phrase or action ccan have on people. Hope you and your pupils enjoy the lesson and if they do why not let others know by leaving a review? If you need any further support with PSHE planning and teaching you might like my new book Making PSHE Matter- available from Jessica Kingsley Publishing and Amazon. http://www.jkp.com/uk/making-pshe-matter-2.html

Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Mu torere is said to be the only native board game of the Maori. It is played on the points and centre of an 8-pointed star, by two players with four pieces each. The object of the game is to block your opponent so they cannot move. Mu Torere is the perfect game to celebrate Matariki, or Waitangi Day, especially if it is raining. I also put the boards in my math game area for my math rotations and early finishers. I have included 2 different game boards. First ,the traditional star board and the other being more of a wheel design (My students seem to prefer this one) Further I have included some counters for it (Or just use your plastic ones). Oh yes I have included instructions on how to play. Simply print, cut and laminate for a long lasting resource. I laminate the game board on one side and the instructions on the other.

Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day Fortune Teller Craft for Gift Vouchers or Promises

Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day Fortune Teller Craft for Gift Vouchers or Promises

Fortune Tellers, or Cootie Catchers, for a printable Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day craft gift. Students really love fortune tellers, or cootie catcher, so why not use them for a fun craft idea for Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day and for any special person? This is a craft, thinking, writing, drawing activity. These are IOU promises or pledges that students offer as gifts. The idea is that they can play with the mother or father, and end up on a promise to do something, as a gift. I’ve included a list of suggestions to offer. This is like a book of gift vouchers, that can be used over and over. Students decorate the catcher with items the parents likes and writes the promises, or IOU pledges in the center. There are instructions, and a QR code to watch someone make a cooties catcher, so this could be a centre task, with students independently reading, listening and following instructions. There’s a choice of eight catchers:  Mothers’ Day  Fathers’ Day  You’re a Special person (for grandparents, step-parents, friends)  Some are complete with images and promises  Some are almost blank, for students to think, decide, draw, write Although I designed these for Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day, some catchers are suitable for Valentines, grandparents, or special gifts.

Year 2 Picasso Portrait Art lesson pack

Year 2 Picasso Portrait Art lesson pack

This pack includes a 4-part lesson plan, which focuses on the famous artist Picasso and cubism style artwork. Including in the planning is the National Curriculum objectives covered, lesson objectives, teaching and assessment points. Each child produces their very own Picasso style self-portrait over a period of lessons. It allows the children to learn about lines, patterns, as well as key primary colours. The children can then be reflective of their artwork and make comparisons to Picasso’s work, on a worksheet (provided in the pack). I taught this my Year 2 Class but it can make a great art focus for any Year’s from 1-4. The finished artwork leads to a great school display! I hope you enjoy teaching the topic as much as I did!

Easter Go Fish Card Game (have/have got)

Easter Go Fish Card Game (have/have got)

A card game to practice Easter vocabulary and have/have got in their various forms. To play: Divide students into groups of 4 or so and deal 4-5 cards each. The rest go in the middle and make the pond /pool/. On his turn, a player asks someone for a card (Have you got…? or Do you have…?) in order to get 4 of a kind (or 6, depending on how many cards you make). If the player has the card, he must hand it over and the player whose turn it is can ask anyone for another card. If the answer is negative, the player is told to go fish and to take a card from the pond and the next person asks for a card. When a player has 4 (or 6) of a kind, he sets them on the table and plays again. Continue until all the cards run out (all the cards have been grouped together into families according to their picture). The winner is the person with the most families. This worksheet contains two of each picture, so I would suggest printing it two or three times to form a set where students can get 4 or 6 of a kind. Enjoy!
