Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the photos. I have combined a summer photos presentation, with a set of creative writing prompts and 31 fun teaching activities linked to these photo flashcards to try in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

The News Quiz 16th - 30th October 2017 (2 weeks) Form Tutor Time Topical Events Settler Starter

The News Quiz 16th - 30th October 2017 (2 weeks) Form Tutor Time Topical Events Settler Starter

13 topical questions of the past week's news, across the UK and the world. Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard. Includes 2 literacy and 1 numeracy questions based on the other questions. Works well as a form group activity in registration time. I give sweets/reward points to the winning group! (We're not supposed to give out sweets so it's a nice 'naughty' reward for knowing about the world this week!) Created 38 school weeks of the year and uploaded to TES. Next one will be 30th October - this one covers two weeks as next week is half term for most schools.

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different shadows being shown in each of the photos. I have collected together some of my best teaching resources about shadows and I think they would make a lovely lesson. There is the game of guess the shadow, followed by reviewing the key words about shadows and a creative writing task to complete. In addition, I have added a teacher guide which explains how to complete another 31 different fun tasks using these resources. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Winter Assembly or Class Play for Key Stage I

Winter Assembly or Class Play for Key Stage I

Winter Assembly for Key Stage One Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down Duration: Around 10 - 15 minutes. This length can be extended by the addition of suggested poems. Brrrr! .... surely there's a bit more to be said about winter than this?! Well, if left to our cast it would just be the sound of snoring - any excuse to follow the lead of that hibernating hedgehog. Fortunately, you can always rely on a bit of Disney to revive flagging spirits - plus some snowball fights and a few words from our rockin robin! This is one of a set of plays on The Seasons - all available as separate purchases. Sample Text (Enter group of children all dressed in winter clothes) Child 23 – 27: (Together) We’re all warm! Narrator: And how is that? Child 23: I have a warm woolly hat! Child 24: I have a warm woolly scarf! Child 25: I have warm woolly gloves! Child 26: I have warm woolly socks and welly boots! Child 27: And we all have Child 23 – 27: Warm woolly coats to keep us warm! (Exit group of children) Narrator: Hmm! Warm and woolly seems to work! Music 5 Rockin Robin – Michael Jackson (Enter Robin/Child 28 dancing to song that is sung by rest of the cast) Narrator: (Applauding) Well, that was very upbeat! (To robin) You don’t seem to have any problems with the cold weather! Robin: Well, it’s not always easy, you know! And I am always grateful to those kind people that leave me food out in their gardens! Narrator: Well, you are our favourite national bird Robin: And those Christmas cards just wouldn’t be the same without me, right? Narrator: Right! (Exit Robin) (Sound of loud snoring, from the cast) Narrator: Hey! What’s going on? Music 6 All I have to do is dream – Everly Brothers (Optional excerpt – first couple of bars) (Enter very sleepy hedgehog/Child 29) Hedgehog: (Rubbing eyes) Oh! Where’s my bed? I must have sleepwalked off, by mistake!

Welcome To The United Kingdom

Welcome To The United Kingdom

Stephen Fry has joined forces with Heathrow Airport to produce an extremely British advert which show exactly how strange this little island is with its love of queuing, the way Brits spend half their days saying 'after you' and how we clap when people break things. The more you think about it, the weirder we seem — and to top it all off, Fry explains all this from a nice old fashioned pub, where Brits (probably) spend more time than they do in the office (!) Your students task is to discuss why they think Stephen Fry was chosen to host such a welcome and choose the perfect candidate for a welcoming sequence they will write for your own country

Diwali :: Deepawali  :: The Festival Of Lights

Diwali :: Deepawali :: The Festival Of Lights

Diwali :: Deepawali :: The Festival Of Lights A creative way to decorate your classroom for Diwali, the festival of lights. Your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these beautiful Diwali Lanterns. These units are designed in a Mix & Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities. Over the centuries, Diwali has become a national festival that is enjoyed by most Indians regardless of faith: Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs. Diwali, or Deepawali, is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that are lit outside homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. This festival is as important to Hindus as the Christmas holiday is to Christians Diwali is an official holiday in Fiji, Guyana, India, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and recently Sindh Province in Pakistan.
