Culture Club: France

My aim was to bring in a bit of my modern foreign languages background when teaching my special education class. It is Autism friendly - as there is a clear sequence/structure and lots of visual support. The idea is to ‘visit’ countries around the world, learning facts - using English skills for reading, comprehension and writing; learn some simple language, and sample the culture. This is an example - I hope you like it - if you do, check out my bundles, Europe and Asia!

CHINA

CHINA

Locate China on a world map and learn about Chinese facts and traditions. Have a go at Chinese multiplication and learn about a recent Earhquake in China. 2 assemblies also included (a teacher led whole-school assembly AND a class assembly). Why not learn some Tai Chi too ... I’ve attached a simple Tai Chi routine (accompanied by some relaxing music).

Introduction to London Zoo (presentation & activity)

Introduction to London Zoo (presentation & activity)

This set of resources is a great introduction to London Zoo. It is suitable for children in KS1 and lower KS2. The presentation first locates London Zoo within the UK and London itself. Children then find out a variety of interesting facts about the zoo. Next the activity challenges children to write a fact file about London Zoo. It is differentiated four ways: LA - cloze procedure activity (children write missing words) LMA - cloze procedure activity (children write whole sentences) UMA - children write own fact file (with sentence starters and vocab prompt) UA - children write own fact file (with vocabulary prompt) I’ve included an editable version of the activities too.
