Changing How We Use Energy

Changing How We Use Energy

In this lesson students find out which appliances in their classroom use energy and work together to create agreements for the classroom about switching off and adjusting these appliances. The lesson ends with students making informative stickers for these appliances. Students will use comprehension strategies to build literal meaning about key ideas and information in texts. They’ll be able to identify way to reduce energy use of items in class, clearly express instructions about how to use an appliance and work in groups to plan a text.

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Includes 12 'storyboard' Nursery Rhymes: The Grand Old Duke of York, Row Row Row Your Boat, Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Miss Muffet, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Bo-Peep, Hickory Dickory Dock, Pat-a-cake and Itsy-bitsy Spider. Say the rhymes with the students, get them to listen and recite each line afterwards, ask them to order the 4 pictures for each nursery rhyme, then use the differentiated worksheets to assess their writing and listening skills. For the speaking, listening and writing worksheets we ask carers to let us know either during drop off or via email a couple of things their child has done over the weekend. We then ask the students what they did at the weekend, prompting other students to ask questions of their peers, and then do a recap by asking who did what to assess who was listening before getting the children to write either with help or independently what they did at the weekend.

Writing Places Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Language

Writing Places Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Language

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Writing Places’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
