Positive Postcards

Positive Postcards

The two images can be printed back to back in colour on white card. The front of the positive postcard shows a superhero holding up a rainbow with the words ‘Power of Positivity’. The writing side of the postcard includes a positive poem to encourage children to believe in themselves and boost their confidence. There is space to write a short message as well as an address which can be sent home or it could be the class name and school address. I used these for several purposes: Improve mental health and well-being. Engage children with behaviour problems catching them doing something postive. As a reward system. Given to children who have low self-esteem and confidence. If used in the class room rather than sent home, I would leave it in the child’s place at the end of the day so it was a surprise for them in the morning. Please note: The cover image only shows part of the postive postcard logo.

KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

KS3 Dance ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW delivery PowerPoint

This ‘Hairspray’ 6 lesson SOW and delivery PowerPoint is for teachers teaching dance at KS3. In the school where I teach, every year we have a Year 9 musical (this year was Hairspray) and all the Year 8 pupils watch during a matinee performance. This SOW has been created for my Year 8 pupils after they have watched our Year 9 performance of Hairspray. The delivery PowerPoint includes questions which refer to the performance that they have watched and the whole point of the SOW is for them to learn the finale dance ‘You can’t Stop the Beat’. You may be thinking, ‘What am I going to do with this resource?’. Well, you’re going to need to adapt it to suit you yes but it will work in a variety of ways. First of all, it can be used as a tutorial of how to turn a series of rehearsals into a series of lessons (learning other key dance skills and terminology in the process). You could use It as a guide to create your own SOW for whatever musical your school has just put on or simply show a YouTube clip of a live performance of ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’. We haven’t chosen next years musical yet but I will be using this SOL and will adapt it to fit. The delivery PowerPoint includes starters in the form of ‘bell activities’/‘talking points’ for each lesson, homework and assessment activities at week 3 and week 6 to record progress.

You are what you eat! Learn about healthy eating habits.

This beautifully illustrated book and the song that accompanies it were originally written for my ESL programme about agriculture & farming. The text serves as a great base for teaching kids about healthy eating habits, looking after ourselves and making choices that help our communities and our environment. A great base for any project which asks kids to reflect on what we eat and where it comes from. Illustrations by Maria Tarrago and design by Eva Morell.

Year 2 Music lesson plan - Graphic Scores

Year 2 Music lesson plan - Graphic Scores

Included is a 3-week lesson plan based on children playing a range of percussion instruments following a graphic score. The planning highlights the Year 2 National Curriculum objectives, lesson objectives, teaching and assessment points. These lessons can be easily adapted and extended to last up to a full half term; this will depend on how quickly the children grasp the idea and understanding of graphic scores. I have also attached the PDF graphic scores, which I used and were a big help! These were taken from traditionalprimarymusic.com The children loved these musical lessons and developed some very good group work and co-ordination skills. Following the teaching and practise, they were able to create their own graphic score by the end of the unit.
