KS2 Stone Age Cross-Curricula Independent Learning based Clothing and Possessions Time Detectives

KS2 Stone Age Cross-Curricula Independent Learning based Clothing and Possessions Time Detectives

This fun yet challenging, cross-curricula lesson has elements of: computing, history and writing, all built into a lesson centred around independent learning. Children will complete a series of engaging tasks including labelling a graphic of a Stone Age man with researched information on clothing and possessions, learning what a person from that time may have owned and building their understanding of life was really like in the time period. They then complete 3 written activities and an extension activity based upon that knowledge they have gained. Activities include framing historically-valid questions, critical thinking and drawing comparisons: all aspects of the new 2014 curriculum. The activities are designed to elicit a deeper level of thought and understanding of the era. Can be taught as two separate hour long lessons but better over one longer session, contains starter and plenary, made for KS2 but accessible to higher ability KS1 and lower ability KS3.

Boucle d'or worksheet

A worksheet that can be used in conjunction with the fantastic interactive fairy tale from Northumberland GFL (available free online!). I have used this with year 7 French as part of their 'house' topic but could be exploited in various ways.

30 Images Of Buildings And Landscapes From Victorian Times.

30 Images Of Buildings And Landscapes From Victorian Times.

Are you studying the Victorians? Are you looking for contempory images of mainly Victorian Britain? I have collected together 30 images published in a wide range of different Victorian Era publications. These would be a great way of starting a discussion about what has remained the same and what has changed in each image compared to what we might find in the present day. You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of photos. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Victorian Era Landscapes. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into Victorian Era Landscapes. The students can then discuss how they think each one felt. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
