Year 7 Summer Homework

Year 7 Summer Homework

This is a booklet based on the i-spy books where students get points for spotting things in and around their homes and beyond. It covers all the chapters from the geog.1 textbook from OUP, and is designed to be a homework project for Year 7 students to complete during the summer holidays. For each item they find they get points and these points lead to house points, merits, credits, stars (whichever reward system your school uses): I even gave students a certificate for completing it. There are 20 pages which can be printed as an A5 booklet or you can choose which pages you want to use as each chapter from the textbook as a set of activities: my version only has 16 pages as there are some chapters that I don’t get time to cover. There is a word puzzle and a place for the students to keep a record of their points as they collect them, I have a place for parents to sign confirmation that students actually did achieve what they say just in case you get a student that makes it up. There are spaces for images, due to copyright I have removed the pictures that I use, but they can easily by added. The only major thing is the Tourist Information key from an OS map: they will need that.

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

SECONDARY INDUSTRY- Ethical Shopping- Intro and Advert design- ENGAGING AND CREATIVE

Used as a joiner lesson between introduction to secondary industry and Nike Sweatshops. The student learn about what Ethical Shopping is and how they as consumers have the power to change industry. They really enjoyed designing their adverts and were very proud when I put them on display. They produced them on computers but some did them on paper, both work as long as it is heavily sampled as many struggle at first with an adverts purpose and layout. The students will have lots of questions and I usually spend 3 lessons on this in total- 1st- introduce term and explain and assess sample ads/start designing. 2nd- Complete design and finish for homework. 3rd- Peer assess each other’s and link it to the environment. They then go on to learn about Nike and their understanding of ethical examples really helped them engage and progress. Please review if you download, thanks :)

China's Terracotta Army worksheet- Independent learning- TWO DIFFERENTIATED WORKSHEETS

For this lesson I wanted to use student’s work for display so we completed this task on paper and over the whole lesson so students could produce work they were proud of and everyone had an opportunity to contribute to the year 7 display. We watched an introductory youtube video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4c_ADqshdSA&index=7&list=PLRc_0Mp9wmwgKyaMFYbCusDhzVRpDr_9f&t=0s And I mind mapped their thoughts and descriptions on the white board and then modelled the task using samples from previous classes. I print the worksheet in A3 and colour as the text is small and hare 1 between 2. The LA sheets are to be written on and everyone should complete the superstar extension, which I use as an exit plenary.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.
