The Secret Life of Objects - A Cross-curricular Creative Approach to Teaching and Learning

This pack aims to provide teachers with the following: – Stimulus to use and incorporate objects regularly into teaching and learning practice – A framework for the analysis of objects in museum and classroom contexts that does not rely on extensive subject knowledge – Creative techniques for critically looking and investigating objects including opportunities for sensory engagement – Bridging techniques to draw out the creative character of objects, either through mind mapping or character profiling – A range of potential creative outputs inspired by objects – A range of strategies/techniques for getting the most out of a museum visit or using objects in the classroom The Secret Life of Objects resource pack contains activity ideas for engaging with objects, an Object Investigation Framework (OIF), exemplars and ideas for creative outputs. The resource uses a simple step-by-step process that will lead you and your pupils from initial object engagement to creative activity.

Weighted random picker powerpoint

Weighted random picker powerpoint

This resource will allow you to randomly pick any student, number or whatever else you want to use. You can either have an equal chance of each category getting selected, or weight it. For example, if I was using students scores to pick a winner (like a raffle) I can enter each score into the spreadsheet and the larger a students score, the larger their section of the wheel. You can have as many or as few sections as you like. Simply click on the wheel to spin it, and click on it again to stop it.

Pupil Premium Promise: Life Experience programme (Improve attendance/behaviour/progress)

Pupil Premium Promise: Life Experience programme (Improve attendance/behaviour/progress)

Pupil Premium Promise - Development of the whole child (Life Experience programme) Limited life experiences of pupils from poor socio-economic backgrounds has a direct link with lower attainment. Research offers up the idea that when a young person is exposed to a new experience a cognitive connection is exercised in the brain thus making it more receptive and versatile to learning. If a young person is exposed to lots of experiences then their brains can adapt more. If a pupil receives limited experiences from a young age, then their brain is less likely to adapt to new learning as it has not got the so called ‘versatility’. The Pupil Premium promise does just that. It is a promise that should be made to the pupils that they will achieve before they leave your school. A bucket list of life experiences to develop mind, body and soul. By delivering the pupil premium promise it will have a positive impact on attendance, progress, attitude and behaviour. Happy pupils want to come into school! The resource is completely adaptable for your school.

My Vegan Child - A Resource for Educators

My Vegan Child - A Resource for Educators

My Vegan Child is a free online resource for parents, teachers and caregivers of vegan children. The booklet was created in collaboration with a group of vegan parents and educators. We wanted to communicate in a way that would inform our children’s teachers on veganism and to navigate potential sensitive areas such as food, nutrition and animal welfare. With more and more families becoming vegan, it is important that educators and carers gain an insight into the perspective of the vegan children they teach. Veganism is much more than just a diet. The information provided both in the booklet, and on this website, will help create a more inclusive learning environment for vegan children, as well as ideas and links for including humane education in teaching programs for all. Printing Info: Open pdf file in Adobe Acrobat Reader (download Adobe for free here). Choose print, then select ‘booklet’ as an option.

Supply Teacher Folder

Supply Teacher Folder

Whenever a teacher needs a day off for sickness or a course, it can sometimes feel like more work to not be in school than it is to be in it. I created this document to make leaving my class with a supply teacher easier for all involved. I know how hard supply teachers work and I know how hard it is to walk into a class and not know the children or the timetable. This folder allows you to keep all the crucial information that a supply teacher needs to know about your class. Just edit the document and include everything that a supply teacher could need to know, print it off, put it in a folder and leave it on your desk! I’ve included a supply teacher feedback form in the download so you can be easily updated on how the day went, who behaved, messages you missed etc

Personality Test: What Do You See First and What It Says About You (fun starter!)

Personality Test: What Do You See First and What It Says About You (fun starter!)

Really fun starter the students love! The following is a personality test to see what kind of person you are. Psychologists have found numerous pointers as to what kind of person one is, from just things we take for granted. For instance, observing a picture for a short period is enough to know what kind of personality one has. Are you optimistic, creative or just stable. This personality test is not scientific, and its main purpose is simply to have fun.
