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

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? Sorting activity / workstation task - did this animal grow inside its mother or hatch from an egg? Human basic needs - male and female mind map activity, pupils to add what is essential for human life. Designed for KS1 / KS2 children with autism but also suitable for mainstream learners or older learners with SEN.

Competitiveness and Collaboration

Competitiveness and Collaboration

During the sessions, the facilitator is encouraged to allow the participants to think about the topic, express their viewpoints, share their experiences and explore its applicability in day to day life. The facilitator would allow the participants to arrive at their own conclusions, rather than imposing his views or opinions – they could even be different from the thoughts given here. DESCRIPTION (Thoughts such as, what does competitiveness and collaboration mean, what it is all about and what its different facets are, may enable the facilitator understand it better. Some such thoughts about competitiveness and collaboration and are given below.) Competitiveness is trying to achieve one’s own goal in a competitive situation. It involves succeeding in a competitive atmosphere without pulling the competitor down; rather by pulling oneself up. Collaboration is working together as a team for achieving a common goal. The intent and questions to be followed in the preparation document.

LESSON ON DEPRESSION FOR TEENS- KS3, PSHE, ENGLISH, RE

LESSON ON DEPRESSION FOR TEENS- KS3, PSHE, ENGLISH, RE

**This is a brilliant creative lesson on depression for teens. It can be used with Key Stage 3 classes (US Grades 6 to 8) in PSHE, ENGLISH, RE or Citizenship. ** The aim of these lessons is to create bright, honest, straightforward and well-designed activities and resources so that teens can connect with the material and understand why the topic is relevant to them. DON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY THE NUMBER OF SLIDES! The presentation has been specifically designed to have as little as possible on each slide so that they are easy to read, memorable and so they build a story! The lesson is split into five sections: ‘What is depression?’; ‘Who gets depressed?’; ‘What does it feel like?’, ‘How do you recognise depression?’ and ‘What helps with depression?’. Each section has a variety of activities so that you can adapt the lesson to your class and the amount of time you have available for the topic. The lesson plan has suggestions for a one hour lesson and a half hour lesson. The full lesson with all the activities would fill 90-100 minutes. Included is an editable Power Point, a PDF version of the Power Point with easy to read, beautifully designed fonts, a PDF of the detailed lesson plan and PDFs of the three worksheets required both in colour and grayscale. Also included is the video of the TED Talk included in the lesson and a version of the ‘Who Said That?’ worksheet with the answers. All feedback gratefully received! Thank you.

I am. I can. I will. Mindfulness and confidence building activity

I am. I can. I will. Mindfulness and confidence building activity

**Nowadays we are becoming more just how much more aware we need to be. The importance **of developing an inner compass that points to an attitude of self belief, determination, resilience and being kids to others, will carry us well through life. This is something that anyone who has every tried to achieve something in their lives knows too well, and I’m sure understand the value of learning this at a young age. This resource is inspired by the morals from my book so can be incorporated into literacy/guided reading lesson, and aims to create class discussion through the introduction of news words or reflecting on words already learned and how they can personally apply them to their own life, which leads to children creating positive self declarations which they can take home with them and keep safe. This resource aims to show children potential and the endless possibilities before them, and the important of a positive mental attitude. Includes worksheets to be used as a poster. Flash cards to introduce new words and phrases and to help them to fill out the worksheet. Extract from on the book in which the main character demonstrates a positive ‘I can’ attitude, despite possible negative opinions.

Be Optimistic (assembly)

Be Optimistic (assembly)

“Be Optimistic” assembly This assembly has been put together by a Head of Year/Pastoral Leader and is designed to be delivered to a whole year group/house or used within tutor time/dinnertime club, or after school club etc. Aims To encourage students to: “Be Optimistic”, (by informing them of the benefits of having an optimistic outlook in life.) Increase your resilience. Take responsibility for your attitude to improve your experience of the world. The first half of the assembly is based on an optical illusion and how you don’t see something how it is you see it how you are. It’s not logical, it’s pyscho-logical. The second half of the assembly tells the story of a man with no arms and no legs and how he had a terribly depressed experience of life until he made the decision in his mind to be more optimistic and see the opportunity in every difficulty, as opposed to the difficulty in every opportunity! The assembly has 19 slides and 2 video clips. It will last 15-20minutes, depending on how much audience participation you encourage. I have embedded the video clips and included the videos as mp4’s as part of the resouces you receive to link to so you don’t need to worry about your school’s internet connection letting you down in front of 200 students and 10 tutors! I also include the YouTube links and titles to the clips for your information, and incase the students want to watch them again at home. This assembly forms a series of assemblies (10-15 in total- which I will be adding in the very near future) designed to build a positive year group identity, and to boost the resilience of the individual students, which is always the main aim of my assemblies.
