Presents Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Gifts Parties Christmas

Presents Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Gifts Parties Christmas

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Presents’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Be Optimistic (assembly)

Be Optimistic (assembly)

“Be Optimistic” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To encourage students to: “Be Optimistic”, (by informing them of the benefits of having an optimistic outlook in life.) Increase your resilience. Take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world. The first half of the assembly is based on an optical illusion and how you don’t see something how it is you see it how you are. It’s not logical, it’s pyscho-logical. The second half of the assembly tells the story of a man with no arms and no legs and how he had a terribly depressed experience of life until he made the decision in his mind to be more optimistic and see the opportunity in every difficulty, as opposed to the difficulty in every opportunity! The assembly has 19 slides and 2 video clips. It will last 15-20minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. I have embedded the video clips and included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resouces you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and incase the students want to watch them again at home. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students, which is always the main aim of my assemblies.

Be nice - assembly

Be nice - assembly

“Be nice” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To remind students to “Work hard. Be nice”. (My favourite saying) A previous assembly (“Growth mindset”-which I will also post on TES shortly) focused on the “Work hard” part so you improve your intelligence and talents. This assembly focuses on the “Be nice” part so that we may enjoy stronger friendships and other healthy relationships. This assembly is based on 3 stories. There are morals to each story that can be explored to encourage students to: be nice to others, treat others how you want to be treat, take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world, and don’t let others decide how you will act or feel. (This is a concept used in my Life coaching called TFAR – Thoughts, Feelings, Actions, Results, and is explained to an appropriate depth in the notes within the PowerPoint on slide 6.) The assembly has 9 slides and no video clips, so no need to worry about your school internet letting you down! It will last 10-15minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The three stories to tell are wrote as a script in the notes at the bottom of the relevant slide. However, since the notes are not visible once you start the PowerPoint, for your convenience, I have also copied the stories onto slides 10, 11, 12 so you may print them off prior to the assembly to learn by heart, or, to read from during the assembly if you wish. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students.

ASSEMBLY - Anger management

ASSEMBLY - Anger management

Anger Management assembly Compiled by a pastoral leader: This PowerPoint presentation can be used as a year group/house assembly, or as part of a dinnertime/after school club etc. designed to increase the resilience of the students. The PowerPoint contains 32 slides and 7 videos, which are embedded. The videos are YouTube clips. Some clips are humourous, some are tongue-in-cheek, some are hard-hitting. All the slides and clips build on each other to inspire and motivate the students to reflect on their current behaviour during the concluding slides. This PowerPoint helps build a positive year-group identity, and delivers a message about anger that can be taken into the wider school community. Links to the YouTube clips are also provided to give the makers credit. (see notes and bibliography within the PowerPoint.) I have included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resources you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and in case the students want to watch them again at home. The PowerPoint can be modified to last between 15-20 minutes, or anything up to 25 minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. The assembly can be followed up with discussions with individual students or classes/tutor groups formally or informally. Kind regards Matthew Obee

Autism Awareness Week- presentation & activities

This was for a small PSHCE lesson for Year 7 students. It’s brief, and doesn’t go into too much detail but has a drawing task, and you can make a sensory task (I just used a box and cut a hole in it), to keep them engaged. It has links to the NAS website, which is for 2018 but can be updated, and to a youtube clip about the creator of Pokemon, which some students might like.

KS3 Dance - Cog

KS3 Dance - Cog

Throughout this scheme pupils will be taught to compose, perform and appreciate differing varieties of dance. The scheme focuses on coordination of isolated body parts, such as arms and legs, when on the spot and traveling, interlocking with a partner and using physical manipulation to initiate actions that go up and down, around and around and side to side. Chorographically pupils will concentrate on spatial features, such as dimensional movement and contrasting pathways. Furthermore the cause and effect helps pupils build from solo work to duet, into small groups. Pupils will be expected to identify and describe key actions and dynamic, spatial and relationship features, making connection between what they will see in the “Cog” video to movements they learn, create and perform. Throughout this scheme of work pupils will be expected to draw links from the “Cog” stimuli to the wider social issue of “Friendship”. Pupils will discuss the meaning of friendship and what it takes to be a good friend - characteristics will be highlighted and explained. Cause and effect/chain reactions will serve as physical interpretations of a friendship break down. Pupils will be expected to explore their own friendships, discussing any challenging social issues they may have personally experienced.

Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

Feelings / emotions activity for social skills

A resource I made for a mixed group of ks1 / ks2 children with autism / social communication needs. Aim is to develop greater understanding of feelings and to begin to develop awareness of other's feelings, also turn taking and attention and listening. Resource includes a feelings poster and 18 cards describing situations that have happened to an imaginary child - e.g. 'She has a wobbly tooth'. We discuss the various feelings an how children are feeling today. Cards are placed face down and children take turns to turn cards over. They consider how the person may be feeling. More able groups could be prompted / questioned to consider would everyone feel that way in that situation (some people can't stand having wobbly teeth, others get excited...) further developing theory of mind and understanding that people can feel differently about situations.
