Stories and Poems to support Creative Science Key Stage 1 Pack

Stories and Poems to support Creative Science Key Stage 1 Pack

This resource has been designed to help bring creativity and the everyday science into your lessons by using stories and poems to enthuse your children. It is divided into year groups and can be purchased per year group, by key stages or as a whole school pack. Each year group has five detailed lesson plans with a story or poem for each of the topics. In years one and two where there are only four topics, an extra lesson has been added for one of the topics. Some of the lessons have more than one activity linked to the story and this can be used for an extended lesson or future lessons depending on how much time there is for the science lesson. This bundle contains Year 1 and Year 2 lessons . However it can be used in any country to support the use of poems and stories in science lessons. For those of you that are used to using stories and poems then this resource will hopefully expand your collection and for those that are new to teaching in this way then the resource will hopefully be the springboard to explore further poems and stories yourselves in the future. There may also be some new ideas for teaching science such as role plays and models that can be used in other science topics. A bonus of using the written word is the cross curricular links to other subjects such as Geography, History, DT and of course Literacy which are mentioned in the lesson plans when appropriate.
