Adaptation worksheets (SEN)

Adaptation worksheets (SEN)

Just some basic worksheets I’ve knocked up for my Year 8 SEN class - they worked quite well so I thought someone might get some use out of them too! Might be useful as a last minute idea for a starter/ plenary in classes with different ability levels also.

HOW TO COPE WITH SCHOOL CONFLICT USING RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

HOW TO COPE WITH SCHOOL CONFLICT USING RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR TEACHERS TO READ ON HOW TO APPLY RESTORATIVE JUSTICE IN DEALING WITH INDISPLINE IN SCHOOLS The practice of restorative justice is a vehicle that offers hope to those affected by violent and aggressive acts. Hope for a different tomorrow is what brings participants together to talk through how these acts have affected them. Is it possible to incorporate both compassion and accountability in the sanctions we impose when dealing with school violence?

Young Brits At Art, Suggested topic: Class divides

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is asking young Britons to express their vision of a world free from prejudice for Young Brits at Art 2010. This year the national art award invites 11-19 year olds to explore their beliefs, opinions and judgments by asking: What would the world look like if we lived without prejudice? Young Brits at Art 2010 includes new categories such as photography, sculpture and motion animation, as well as its previous sections for painting and drawing. National curriculum teaching packs are available to guide schools, pupil referral units, religious groups and other organisations that wish to explore the meaning of equality and human rights through art. Young people can also develop their own artwork and enter independently. How entrants choose to define prejudice is up to them and there will be 45 workshops held across Britain by arts professionals to support those taking part. Free teaching resources and more information is available online: www.equalityhumanrights.com/art Email: art@equalityhumanrights.com Contact: 0845 604 6610 Closing Date: Wednesday 24 March 2010 The Equality and Human Rights Commission is a statutory body established under the Equality Act 2006, which took over the responsibilities of Commission for Racial Equality, Disability Rights Commission and Equal Opportunities Commission.

Minibeast Session 4

Minibeast Session 4

This resource pack is suitable for the use in special schools because it provides practical and visual resources for all abilities. This pack is session 4 of 5 sessions and can also be used as a starting point for teachers to elaborate on this topic as they choose to. There are resources differentiated at 3 levels for this session. Teachers can also use these sessions in any order depending on the needs of the children and any prior learning which they may already have. Due to this being a very practical unit of work it engages children’s interest greatly which supports their enthusiasm for finding out more information about the minibeasts. The worksheets for children to use are minimalist with images and little text on the page. The teaching notes are available as support for teachers on how to effectively teach this unit.

Headteacher Sue Tinson has risked £500,000 of personal debt to open The Serendipity Centre - a school for girls with complex emotional and behavioural issues. To many of the girls, the Southampton-based school, set within an adapted bungalow, acts as a last chance for an education. Find out more as Sue reveals the methods and practices she has developed to work effectively with this hard to reach group.

Teachers TV: Teenage Mental Health

Teachers TV: Teenage Mental Health

What do you do when you have pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties who won't engage with you or your lessons? Pupils who truant and whose out-of-school activities are a definite barrier to learning? What if these pupils are from ethnic minority groups and prove even harder to reach? The Multi Agency Preventative Project works with schools in Tower Hamlets to address this issue. Each agency offers a different approach depending on the problem and at Bow School we meet youth worker Marion Spiers and two of her referrals, 16 year old Tehsin, who has attendance issues, and 13 year old Raju, who is under achieving. Marion has been working with Tehsin for 8 months and today's session focuses on identity. With Raju, who is a new client, she is concentrating on communication. Both boys feel that they can speak in confidence with Marion and value her advice. Jon Ryder is the schools' link teacher. He also values what the MAP project can do for students and teachers.

Teachers TV: Protecting Children - 4 True Stories

Teachers TV: Protecting Children - 4 True Stories

The challenges facing teachers of abused and neglected children. Behind the headlines and the statistics of child protection are the real stories of schools dealing with neglected and abused children. To help gain a genuine understanding of the issues, this film reconstructs four of these true stories. For the first time on television, teachers and other professionals reveal how they dealt with the challenges raised by the cases. Amy was 8 - her stepfather was sexually abusing her. 6 year old Lucy misbehaved constantly - her teachers didn't know what was wrong until her mother was arrested on a drugs charge. 11 year old Faiza didn't speak in class, but her school didn't realize that anything was seriously wrong until, after a prolonged absence, she was found drugged with an over the counter cough medicine. 14 year old Sam, was drawn into a world of drugs and prostitution without her parents or school realizing. (All names and details have been changed). Maria Kidd, a leading expert on child protection places these cases in context.
