The Witches' Spell - Capacity Key Stage 2

The Witches' Spell - Capacity Key Stage 2

A quality lesson plan, worksheets and a presentation to get children thinking about measuring and potions! Inspired by The Witches' Spell in Macbeth by William Shakespeare, these sessions are part of a longer unit covering all areas of curriculum, but are great as stand alone sessions too. In this pack are two lesson plans and the printable resources, plus the presentation, that you'll need for sessions brave Key Stage 2 children and their teachers. The children are given opportunities to calculate different capacities and there is a good balance of practical and formal work. Aims and success criteria are made clear, as are the key words and resources needed for the activities that take place. This is a resource heavy topic, but I hope that I have made it as simple and practical as possible, while still being creative and fun for everyone. If physical resources are not available, substituting for alternatives is great for the imagination and pictures can do the job as well. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. Learning Objectives and Assessment for Learning boxes are included on the worksheets to help you with your marking. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and further measurement activities etc. My EYFS and Key Stage 1 activities based on capacity and witches' spell theme are also available via TES, so please look out for them. All of the resources can be easily adapted for your use in the classroom, but if you would like me to do for you, please contact me: emma@emblabee.org I am here to make your life easier after all :) To hear a FREE recording of the poem that inspired the activities, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/ There are also links to the other resources and lesson plans in The Witches' Spell Teaching Pack. If you like my resources, I'd be really grateful for a review and some stars. If you don't like them, ask your loved ones to stock up on flies for your breakfast x

The Witches' Spell - Capacity Key Stage 1

Two lesson plans, worksheets and three presentations to get young children thinking about measuring and potions! Inspired by The Witches' Spell in Macbeth by William Shakespeare, these sessions are part of a longer unit covering all areas of curriculum, but are great as stand alone sessions too. In this pack are two lesson plans and the printable resources, plus the presentation, that you'll need for sessions brave Key Stage 1 children and their teachers. The children are introduced to the basic terms for measuring different capacities and there is a good balance of practical and formal work. Aims and success criteria are made clear, as are the key words and resources needed for the activities that take place. This is a resource heavy topic, but I hope that I have made it as simple and practical as possible, while still being creative and fun for everyone. If physical resources are not available, substituting for alternatives is great for the imagination and pictures can do the job as well. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. Learning Objectives and Assessment For Learning boxes are included in the worksheets to help your marking go quickly, and are editable in the Word version of the documents. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and further measurement activities etc. A Key Stage 2 measurement activity takes the capacity and witches' spell theme further, so please look out for it.
