KS1 Science 'Staying Alive' topic, sorting tasks / activities

Resources made for Science Week with a focus on ‘Staying Alive’. We learnt about the difference between living and non living things, that animals including humans grow from babies into adults, that some animals grow inside their mother while others hatch from an egg, children kept a food journal for later learning about a balanced diet. Before learning about basic needs, children attempted to complete a mind map, adding to this later. Living / Not Living / Never Lived sorting activity / workstation task What do you call a baby… table to complete 5 day food journal - table for students to complete (Monday to Friday) Egg or Mum?

Power of Yet & Growth Mindset Multiplication Mosaic

Power of Yet & Growth Mindset Multiplication Mosaic

This resource contains 2 multiplication mosaics, “The Power of Yet” and “Growth Mindset”.I find they compliment each other extremely well and provide a fun, engaging and creative way for your students to learn their timetables. I have included 2 versions of each, one with a title on it and one without. Just choose which version is best for your class and print them off. They are all ready to go. The student just needs pencils, felts, etc to color it in. If I have a struggling student that does not know their timetables yet, I hand out a timetable chart to them so that they can complete it, or make sure they can see a copy of it on the wall.
