Tree Identification + worksheet. Identification keys, field work can be used for KS2--> KS5

A presentation that explores some of the most common trees that could be found in your school grounds. Discover their shape, leaves, flowers and seeds. Students can then explore their school grounds and collect leaves from the trees and stick an example on the worksheet. For stretch and challenge learners could create an Identification key which can be used to ID the tree in the future.

Autumn Assembly

Autumn Assembly

Autumn Assembly for Key Stage I One of a set of assemblies on the Seasons. Cast of 30 - easily adjustable up or down. It is suggested that the class teacher takes the role of narrator. Duration - around 10 minutes but can be extended with inclusion of list of suggested poems Swallows, squirrels, deer, bats, .... children! Our narrator certainly has his work cut out keeping this assembly under control! Ever tried keeping a hibernating hedgehog or two sleepy dormice awake? Or silencing a flock of Brent Geese? Just two of the tasks facing our, as always, seriously challenged narrator! Sample Text: (Dormice curl up together and drop off to sleep) Narrator: Hey you two! Not yet! Wake up! (Both dormice yawn and stretch sleepily) Dormouse 1: Is it April yet? Dormouse 2: I think I’ll leave it to May this year! Dormice: (Together) Yeah! Let’s have a lie in! Narrator: You most certainly will not! Do I look like a Dormouse babysitter? Be off with you! (Exit Bats and Dormice) (Enter Hedgehog, making loud snuffling noises; he collects up some of the leaves left behind by the children, makes a nest of them and lies down in the middle) Narrator: Aha! And who do we have here? Our first hibernating hedgehog! Hedgehog: (Huffily getting out ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign and placing it next to his nest) Can’t you read? Narrator: You’re a bit early! It’s not November yet! Hedgehog: So? (Putting on night cap) (Rubbing tummy) I’ve done enough eating! I’m ready for sleep!

I was forgetting those young animals! (Narrator jumping out of their way) Narrator: Oh dear! Is it just me or does it suddenly seem a bit crowded around here? Mother Rabbit: But didn’t you say, you loved Spring? Narrator: Oh yes! But .. (Bunnies and lambs keep jumping up at Narrator) Narrator: (To Mother Rabbit and Mother Sheep) Could you not keep your offspring under slightly better control? (Mother Rabbit and Mother Sheep ‘round up’ their offspring and return to their seats, scowling) Narrator: Oh dear! And there I was saying how much I loved Spring! But it’s not just about baby animals, you know! (Enter Child 6 dressed as Mole and Child 7 as Rat) Narrator: Ah! Two of my favourite characters from The Wind in the Willows! Mole: (Bowing) I’m Mole! Very pleased to meet you! Rat: And I’m Rat! Known as Ratty to my friends

Pumpkin Craft  ::  Pumpkin Life Cycle

Pumpkin Craft :: Pumpkin Life Cycle

Pumpkins, Pumpkins and more Pumpkins A creative way to teach about Pumpkins and Pumpkin life cycles. Your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these unique Pumpkin Lanterns. Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Embedded within this Pumpkin project there are several activities to extend your students learning about the Pumpkins. These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students…so many possibilities. This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Pumpkin craft that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week or two to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on Pumpkins or Pumpkin life cycle cut-outs will take an additional 45 to 60 minute block of time. I normally have my Kiddos write about each life cycle stage or facts about Pumpkins or Pumpkin varieties on the back of the cut-outs. Included: • Printed Pumpkin lantern templates • Numerous Pumpkin trims and Life Cycle trims • Pumpkin Cut- outs….check out the preview to see everything included! ***************************************************************************** Keywords: Pumpkin Craft :: Pumpkin Activity :: Pumpkin Life Cycle :: Pumpkin Life Cycle Craft :: Jack O’lantern :: :: Paper Lantern :: 3D Craft :: Pumpkin Theme :: Ms Lil :: Pumpkin Decoration :: Pumpkin Wind sock ::
