Basic Crawley timeline facts for a display

Basic Crawley timeline facts for a display

A PowerPoint with some key facts about Crawley. It is a very basic PowerPoint, it would not be the main attraction of your display but would be a nice addition. This fits with a local study and helps students to see how events in their local area fit with wider events such as the Second World War.

9-1 Edexcel History Learning / Topic Placemat - Whitechapel c1870-1900, crime, policing & the inner

9-1 Edexcel History Learning / Topic Placemat - The Historic Environment - Written in PowerPoint These interactive learning placemats were designed to meet the challenges of the new 9-1 GCSE. They build upon the successful Medicine Through Time Placemats that I previously designed (and which received 5* reviews by all who have purchased them up to the time of launching these new materials – see: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/9-1-edexcel-gcse-history-of-medicine-place-mat-question-structure-11627611 ). The new placemats have been identified as best practice during a ‘Challenge Partners’ review as well as being identified as best practice by other History teachers on the Olevi ‘Outstanding Teacher Programme’. The new design learning placemats support both teachers and students in addressing the: a) dramatic increase in the curriculum content needed for the different units b) support the need for increased literacy demands c) help students become familiar and more confident in recognising the correct response needed for the unprecedented number of different question styles The placemats are designed to be double sided. One side focuses on the CONTENT: providing an overview of key knowledge and understanding needed (this will change for each topic area within this GCSE unit). Every placemat across the GCSE range is designed to encourage greater understanding of: Historical Context - through timelines, picture prompts and key words Awareness of the ‘big picture’ so students can see how individual lessons fit into the unit and make clearer links between prior and future learning – through ‘Big Picture’ questions. Better Literacy – through selected ‘language for learning’ vocab box. Memory prompts to support revision – through the use of carefully selected images. Increased awareness of metacognition – through PME (Progress, Monitor and Evaluation Time) questions to encourage students to deconstruct their learning and identify key factors (eg. Social, economic, political) or key individuals and make links between features. A pictorial metacognition man with 5 question prompts will support student reflection. The reverse side contains guidance on EXAM TECHNIQUE through: Identifying the nature of the question styles for each GCSE Unit and the allocated marks available Examiners levelled mark schemes Support writing frames with generic sentence starters

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

KS2 Stone Age Vocabulary - illustrated

A collection of 55 terms relating to Archaeology and the Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age). Based closely on the content of our KS2 learning workshops, which specifically address the 2014 National Curriculum statutory unit “Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.” The Old Stone Age is the starting point against which other changes can be most successfully measured, as it was a lengthy pre-agricultural period of nomadic hunter-gatherers, spanning around 99.5% of our history. Supported by unique and original images including real and replica artefacts, each term has a carefully-researched definition added, based on our specialist knowledge of this period and our experience of teaching about it. Pairs of terms are presented in A4 landscape format ready for printing, and laminating if required. This resource is guaranteed FREE of second-hand clip art cartoons featuring stereotypical images of club waving cavemen in fur nappies, and aims to knock the somewhat unhelpful Flintstones image squarely on the head. Can be used for display, reference, or matching exercises, by children in the classroom or for in-school staff INSET. Available for download in .pdf format. For non-commercial educational use and display only.
