Make a Class Minibeast Encyclopaedia

Make a Class Minibeast Encyclopaedia

The children in my class thoroughly enjoyed this activity! Children get allocated a picture page and given a copy of the leaf writing frame (printed on green card) to place over the image. They write clues to describe their mini-beast (no. of legs, wings, colour, etc.) so others can guess and life the flap to find out of they were right. A fantastic addition to your interactive displays or your class bookcase.

Different habitats - Using Marion Blank's Language Levels: 7

Different habitats - Using Marion Blank's Language Levels: 7

Different Habitats is the seventh in this series. It has illustrations for Ocean/Arctic/Rainforest/Australian desert. A small vocabulary set of early words is included but, as this title is more ‘academic’ than the earlier ones, new words are necessary for comprehension, speaking and reading. The main focus of the Language Levels pages is one-to-one or small group work with children who need carefully graded questions. The Marion Blank Language Levels I-IV move from very direct questioning (approx. 3y but appropriate for older children with impaired/delayed language skills) towards much more abstract work (5+y). Each of the four scenes in the resource has questions at each Level. The ideas would also suit EAL teaching. The four pictures are also included on a single sheet for making new activities. There is a simple illustrated text (RA 7y) plus additional pages about further habitats. The cover note includes suggestions. The illustrations could be used for many topics of conversation: animals and their homes/food/adaptations; weather round the world; equator versus polar regions; climate change; water cycle; living things.

Eddy the fly

Eddy the fly

Eddy the fly is a funny cross-curricular poem that children love. I have published this poem following positive responses from the children and other teachers. Combining poetry and science, Eddy the fly is an excellent story/poem to introduce children to the invertebrates in a fun way. It also covers PHSE with regards to hygiene. From my experience, most children’s day-to-day experience of non-domesticated animals is more often with invertebrates (flies, spiders, woodlice etc); the children often just do not realize that the creatures are animals! So, at the end of the poem there is a series of accurate scientific facts that will encourage the child to explore more about the animal in the poem. Finally, there is also a satisfying 'yuk' factor, which could be the starting point to discuss the importance of handwashing and general hygiene etc. More importantly, it's just good fun. Eddy is the first in a series of similar poems based on invertebrates.
