Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Being a Designer means stepping out of your comfort zone and forgetting about your own preferences & needs. However, I have noticed that this is sometimes lost in classroom practice. Students are given a design brief or problem to solve, yet the final outcome is bias and based upon what THEY like and want. Students design something for themselves that they can take home and use - This resource prevents this from happening! 12 different consumer cards that are purposely written in a paragraphs, so that students can dissect the information, like a reading comprehension, pulling out the important facts that they need to know. This will show a detailed understanding. The cards include a range of people that have a variety of likes, needs and wants. This encourages students to choose a suitable consumer that is relevant to the problem that they have been asked to solve. (For example, if the problem is to design a product to help the elderly, then the Baby consumer profile card would not be suitable - Students should be expected to work this out after class discussion). Print on A4 or A3 paper and laminate!

Technology Challenge Cards

Technology Challenge Cards

How are you challenging your most able students? Challenge Cards are a great way to embed high level learning activities into every lesson and more importantly… Students love completing them! Ofsted regularly report that more able students are not being challenged enough in most subjects. Some leave primary school with high SATS results, yet fail to leave secondary school with top GCSE grades. Challenge Cards have been created as an alternative to ‘more of the same’ extension tasks. Cards have been developed for individual year groups and contain either theory or design related activities - activities relate to the scheme of work but are always topics that students have not studied yet. Each card includes a checklist which allows students to tick off success criteria as they work through the activity. Challenge Cards also include house point rewards which are dependant on how well the student has completed the challenge. There is also a space for a teacher comment. Staple the cards to the corner of student booklets so that challenge activities are evident in work scrutiny. Students also enjoy finding these in their books once work has been marked and handed back to them in fix-it time. Cards should be printed in black and white on bright green A4 card. This makes them stand out in class books and look appealing to students. (Includes: Six different KS3 cards as examples) This resource is fully editable using Microsoft PowerPoint

Technology : Talent Postcards (rewards & achievement)

Technology : Talent Postcards (rewards & achievement)

Postcards are a simple but effective way to reward students for their hard work. ‘Technology Talent’ postcards have been created to award the most talented designers in the classroom! Send these to your most gifted students. Students who have the most creative ideas, students who are fantastically skilled in the workshop or just have a natural talent when using design programs. Technology Talent postcards are a great way to target any pupils that you think will succeed if they choose Technology at GCSE - we have sent some out to our already talented KS3 students. Promoting them on social media accounts will also build up hype and awareness with students. Print on A4 card, cut out, write the student name in the ‘well done’ bubble and you’re ready to go!

Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Ask your children to design a dream house for a spaceman, a teacher, a pet etc. This can be a weekend homework project or class-based activity. My students loved this activity (and most of the parents did too) and it created lots of descriptive writing opportunities. My class also designed and made one of the rooms in their dream house using 'doll-sized' pieces of furniture (great DT project). Enjoy!
