Do We need to be Perfect? An assembly for Lower Primary School Age range

PSHE lesson plan- words can hurt

PSHE lesson plan- words can hurt

This is a tried and tested lesson plan for KS2 (but can also work for KS1) about how unkind words can have a lasting effect. At first reading it seems a little cheesy but I’ve used it with some pretty streetwise Y6 pupils and they loved it! The focus is on empathy and understanding the lasting damage a throwaway phrase or action ccan have on people. Hope you and your pupils enjoy the lesson and if they do why not let others know by leaving a review? If you need any further support with PSHE planning and teaching you might like my new book Making PSHE Matter- available from Jessica Kingsley Publishing and Amazon. http://www.jkp.com/uk/making-pshe-matter-2.html

Sample Pages For The Trouble With Young People Today... Play Script

A short extract from the play The Trouble With Young People Today… a simple but effective one act play which explores the issues of self-confidence, peer pressure, and just saying no. Jimmy would rather play the fool and impress his friends than use his brain and stay out of trouble. Eventually his craving for attention and respect has dire consequences. This is a powerful play to perform and would work well as a performance to a younger audience. These sample pages give you a taster of what the play is like and allow you to try before you buy!

He’s in danger of being kicked out of the circus and - even worse - has been made to return to clown school! This is a great play for a large cast and is ideal for creating links with circus topics.

Sample Pages For The Big Ship Sails

Sample Pages For The Big Ship Sails

A short extract from the play script The Big Ship Sails which tells the harrowing story of children ‘exported’ from Britain during the 1950s and 60s when the Child Migration Scheme was at its peak. The play uses accounts from actual child migrants to explore how the scheme came into being and its impact on the young lives involved. It’s a powerful play for a large cast and an ideal play for young actors who want to connect with this period in British history. These sample pages give you a taster of what the play is like and allow you to try before you buy!

Simple Scripted Duologue

Simple Scripted Duologue

A great little original script for two people which can be used for improvisation, role play, characterisation work, script annotating or writing, or for exploring PSHE issues. Younger pupils can simply write the rest of the scene, the preceding scene, or the following scene. Older pupils can add cut-away scenes and develop the extract into a whole play. I’ve used it with KS2 and KS3 students and they’ve all created something different from it! If you found this resource useful, please take a minute to leave a positive review. Thanks everso!

Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Matariki - Mu Torere (A Traditional Maori Board Game)

Mu torere is said to be the only native board game of the Maori. It is played on the points and centre of an 8-pointed star, by two players with four pieces each. The object of the game is to block your opponent so they cannot move. Mu Torere is the perfect game to celebrate Matariki, or Waitangi Day, especially if it is raining. I also put the boards in my math game area for my math rotations and early finishers. I have included 2 different game boards. First ,the traditional star board and the other being more of a wheel design (My students seem to prefer this one) Further I have included some counters for it (Or just use your plastic ones). Oh yes I have included instructions on how to play. Simply print, cut and laminate for a long lasting resource. I laminate the game board on one side and the instructions on the other.
