KS2 Film making lesson plan with easy to follow lessons and end of unit outcome

KS2 Film making lesson plan with easy to follow lessons and end of unit outcome

Children are often engaged when they have a context/ purpose for their writing. This is a unit of plan that I use to engage my whole class and encourage and inspire the children's activities. Children will use newspaper reports and convert them into news reports using iPads and iMovie. They will learn technical language to describe shot sizes and they'll understand why different shot sizes are used on their favourite TV programs. This unit comes with an end of unit assessment and meets NC objectives for Computing and Literacy writing and speaking and listening. The skills learnt will enable children to create VLOGS, short drama narratives, recounts and these products all look great on school websites and social media accounts.

Snow White Activity Pack

Snow White Activity Pack

A detailed and wide range of activities based on the traditional version of Snow White. This is an overview of a unit of work, which can be used in conjunction with the story or a trip to the pantomime and is most suitable for children from EYFS to lower Key Stage 2, although the ideas may be cherry picked and developed for older pupils. Most of the activities are based in drama, art & technology and literacy, and there are opportunities for outdoor learning which encompass geography and design technology. Included in the pack are background notes on the history and changes to the text since it first appeared in print, suggested further reading and almost unnecessary references to Chris Hemsworth. I have included detailed notes on how I would approach telling the tale to a class as a oral tale - where I would have breaks for discussions and to create tension.

The Snowman Talk for Writing KS1 2 Week Unit

The Snowman Talk for Writing KS1 2 Week Unit

This is a 2 week unit for a Talk 4 Writing style text that I made based on The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I have included a teacher's script for the text to go alongside the modelled picture map of the text (in resources) . You can use this to create your own picture map (by enlarging the photo, or tracing it onto a bigger sheet of paper, or give the children as an A4 handout). I have also enclosed some EAL/beginner resources for the 2nd week. I have also included a plan for two weeks (and resources that I made to go with the plan). We use Twinkl as a school, so the other planning contains reference to Twinkl, which you may want to use but you will need your own subscription.
