Snow White Lesson Pack Set A

Snow White Lesson Pack Set A

Four lesson detailed plans based on the Grimm's Tale of Snow White. This pack is the first of a series of stand alone packs to use the magical story as inspirational for creative and exciting lessons for young children, this time focusing on the Magic Mirror, Drama and English activities. Most suitable for EYFS and Key Stage 1, but easily adaptable and hugely enjoyable for older children too, these lessons contain clear aims and success criteria for each session, ideas and indications for how the lessons can develop and progress. Differentiation is catered for, and specially tailored activities and tasks are included in the plans to help support and stretch all abilities. The Drama lessons ask the children to develop their skills in mirroring and copying each other, in a co-operative and happy environment, with opportunities for role-play and interaction skill development. Role-play also features in the English lessons, as they look at how to ask and answer written and oral questions. Suggested prior knowledge, requirements and resources are all included in the plans, so you can pick them up and use them, knowing exactly what you need to know, what the children to know, what you need and where you can get things from too if necessary. Notes have been added to make everything as simple as possible, so that you can use the lessons easily.

Snow White Activity Pack

Snow White Activity Pack

A detailed and wide range of activities based on the traditional version of Snow White. This is an overview of a unit of work, which can be used in conjunction with the story or a trip to the pantomime and is most suitable for children from EYFS to lower Key Stage 2, although the ideas may be cherry picked and developed for older pupils. Most of the activities are based in drama, art & technology and literacy, and there are opportunities for outdoor learning which encompass geography and design technology. Included in the pack are background notes on the history and changes to the text since it first appeared in print, suggested further reading and almost unnecessary references to Chris Hemsworth. I have included detailed notes on how I would approach telling the tale to a class as a oral tale - where I would have breaks for discussions and to create tension.

The Snowman Talk for Writing KS1 2 Week Unit

The Snowman Talk for Writing KS1 2 Week Unit

This is a 2 week unit for a Talk 4 Writing style text that I made based on The Snowman by Raymond Briggs. I have included a teacher's script for the text to go alongside the modelled picture map of the text (in resources) . You can use this to create your own picture map (by enlarging the photo, or tracing it onto a bigger sheet of paper, or give the children as an A4 handout). I have also enclosed some EAL/beginner resources for the 2nd week. I have also included a plan for two weeks (and resources that I made to go with the plan). We use Twinkl as a school, so the other planning contains reference to Twinkl, which you may want to use but you will need your own subscription.

Simple Nativity Play: preparation done ready to just print and distribute.

Simple Nativity Play: preparation done ready to just print and distribute.

The Simplest Nativity Play Ever has up to 19 short speaking parts of a couple of rhyming lines which make everyone feel special and are very simple to remember. It doesn't need reducing if you don't fill all of the parts and will work for all ages, including mixed age groups and special needs. Great for getting away with stage fright moments. Extremely adaptable. Every person's part has a 'script prompt card' ready for you to print off and distribute. The play can be performed at short notice with little or even NO REHEARSAL if necessary. The narrator tells the story in rhyme and rhythm and every actor's lines are preceded with obvious prompts like : The innkeeper listened, while Joseph said..... “Do you have a room and a lovely warm bed?” The direction is simple and built into the rhyming play eg...So Mary and Joseph will you start to walk? And if you don’t mind we’ll (I’ll) continue to talk. Choice of 2 endings: biblical or more general Christmas message. No music is included but appropriate carols are suggested , or just omit songs or use past familiar favourites. A rhyme and rhythm Nativity Roll Call Poem is included at the end of the play giving an opportunity for each individual to stand and take a bow. The Unending Christmas Story is a story poem included as a summary of the message of the play. I have used the script myself and am available by email for suggestions to help with tackling any specific difficulties. The large script preview gives a better idea of the script and how to use it. The full play is provided as an instantly downloadable, editable word document for £9.95 WITH NO EXTRAS, AND NO LICENCE FEE from my website www.bestchildrensnativity.com, including all of the preprepared scripts prompts which are ready to simply print and distribute. Lots of other free poems (purpose written to compliment the national curriculum) are available from my free educational poetry website for teachers and children www.angelaspoems.com.
