Estrangement: 30 Years to 30 Days: Seeds to Estrangement through Divorce

Estrangement: 30 Years to 30 Days: Seeds to Estrangement through Divorce

Approximately 90% of Estrangements from children are caused by spouses during a divorce. It has sadly become commonplace and a social issue pushed under the rug. 30 YEARS to 30 DAYS is a journey that echoes many divorces. A story of decay borne from family dysfunctions. Children estranged at the hand of the opposing parent. And of entrenched, often biased legal systems. These scenarios are not uncommon. But this book is uncommonly candid. Follow the twists of one woman’s unexpected fate. You will empathize with human frailties. Be at odds with morality issues. Become appalled at choices and amazed at heart wrenching decisions. Then wonder how a simple divorce can turn so bizarre. Reflective lessons abound should you face a similar quest. A MUST READ for every upcoming divorcee AND their adult children.

Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day Fortune Teller Craft for Gift Vouchers or Promises

Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day Fortune Teller Craft for Gift Vouchers or Promises

Fortune Tellers, or Cootie Catchers, for a printable Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day craft gift. Students really love fortune tellers, or cootie catcher, so why not use them for a fun craft idea for Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day and for any special person? This is a craft, thinking, writing, drawing activity. These are IOU promises or pledges that students offer as gifts. The idea is that they can play with the mother or father, and end up on a promise to do something, as a gift. I’ve included a list of suggestions to offer. This is like a book of gift vouchers, that can be used over and over. Students decorate the catcher with items the parents likes and writes the promises, or IOU pledges in the center. There are instructions, and a QR code to watch someone make a cooties catcher, so this could be a centre task, with students independently reading, listening and following instructions. There’s a choice of eight catchers:  Mothers’ Day  Fathers’ Day  You’re a Special person (for grandparents, step-parents, friends)  Some are complete with images and promises  Some are almost blank, for students to think, decide, draw, write Although I designed these for Mothers’ Day and Fathers’ Day, some catchers are suitable for Valentines, grandparents, or special gifts.

KS1 Picasso/Cubism Portrait Art lesson pack

KS1 Picasso/Cubism Portrait Art lesson pack

This pack includes a 4-part lesson plan, which focuses on the famous artist Picasso and cubism style artwork. Including in the planning is the National Curriculum objectives covered, lesson objectives, teaching and assessment points. Each child produces their very own Picasso style self-portrait over a period of lessons. It allows the children to learn about lines, patterns, as well as key primary colours. The children can then be reflective of their artwork and make comparisons to Picasso’s work, on a worksheet (provided in the pack). I taught this my Year 2 Class but it can make a great art focus for any Year’s from 1-4. The finished artwork leads to a great school display! I hope you enjoy teaching the topic as much as I did!

Relationships and Conflict

Relationships and Conflict

Five PSHE lessons all with a focus on relationships and conflict.

The five lesson packs are complete with at least one hour-long powerpoint, accompanying differentiated worksheets, clip links with questions, plenaries, clear LOs and starters. All are well differentiated to three levels throughout to enable clear evidence of progress for all students. These resources have been highly-rated individually by TES users, follow the same consistent format and are easy to follow. There is zero extra work required, although each lesson is still completely editable too. I use all of these myself as a Head of PSHE and Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value.
