Shakespeare Week: great set of Shakespeare quotation display cards/teaching resources

Shakespeare Week: great set of Shakespeare quotation display cards/teaching resources

Shakespeare Week is on the way! This pack contains a great set of A4 display pages. Each has a different quotation to make your students think. Under each quotation, which should be big enough for classroom displays, I’ve put a concise summary of what the quotation is about, who said it, and the scene reference. Teaching: you could quickly insert the ‘animation’ function into my PowerPoint to turn this int a great classroom quiz, as the coloured explanatory text is essentially the ‘answer’ -so you get a display and a quiz in on e! The quotations cover the Histories, Tragedies, Comedies and Late Plays. I have chosen more for ‘Macbeth’ and ‘Romeo and Juliet’ to help our GCSE students! Teaching: you could quickly insert the ‘animation’ function into my PowerPoint to turn this int a great classroom quiz. Happy Shakespeare Week, gentles all. Please browse my shop (search under ‘Shakespeare’) for other resources, including a Shakespearean insults tournament lesson and lots of revision packs.

Curling Winter Olympics Vocabulary game for Interactive Whiteboard

Curling Winter Olympics Vocabulary game for Interactive Whiteboard

Tying in with the Winter Olympics 2018, this is a curling game which I have used for MFL lessons (ask differentiated vocabulary and / or conjugation questions to decide who goes first, and whether students can launch a stone / how many stones they are allowed to launch). Points are gathered either by ‘zone’ the stone is touching, e.g. 1 for outer (blue), 2 for outer white, 3 for red and 4 for inner white, or (like the real curling game) you score depending on how close you are to the middle. If the closest stone is red or yellow, that team gets 1 point. If the second closest is the SAME colour, that team gets 2 points. If it is a different colour, the closest team only gets 1 point, etc. Users simply flick the stone from behind one of the two lines (for left- and right-handed players) towards the house and the scores are totalled after all 8 have been thrown.

Behaviour Warning Chart.

Behaviour Warning Chart.

A great behaviour management tool for any classroom in Keystage 2. I currently use this chart with my Year 4 class. I use it to identify the children who are not given warnings and reward those children when we review the chart the following week. If children are given a warning they put a mark by their name and if they continue to make the wrong choices they then put another mark meaning they are on amber and loose 5 minutes of play time. Finally, if children move onto the red column they loose 5 minutes of their golden time. The sanctions for each level can be adapted to different school behaviour polices. This chart changed the behaviour in my classroom as children could see a reward for making the correct choices rather than focusing on the negative things. Hope it helps many like it has me.

Please see the first page of the pack for a comprehensive mapping of the activities included against the specifications for GCSE and A-level Geography, and A-level Politics.

What’s Included? Starter This starter activity introduces students to the concept and possible impact of climate change, asking them to think of their own examples and share them with the class. Main - Preparatory Knowledge This section provides the preparatory knowledge required by students to participate in the activities and forms roughly the first half of the full lesson. The resources provided introduce students to the idea of climate change as a political and social issue, encouraging them to consider how international cooperation and government policy can impact the way climate change is managed. Activity 1: Climate Change Debate This activity builds on the preparatory knowledge and sees students working in teams to debate two statements: 'The UK is doing enough about climate change’ and ‘Responsibility for tackling climate change should lie with individuals, not governments’ Activity 2: Climate Change Game Building on the preparatory knowledge, a simplified version of a game developed by James Copestake and Tom Ellum, this activity sees students work in teams representing country groups to explore climate catastrophe as a possible outcome from an environmental ‘tragedy of the commons’. If you have any questions or feedback, please send this to [info@fantasyfrontbench.com] Fantasy Frontbench is a not-for-profit organisation, which aims to present political information in a format that is engaging and accessible. University College London (UCL) Public Policy is the official academic partner for the project.

UAE My Identity Tarsia MOE

UAE My Identity Tarsia MOE

This Tarsia puzzle covers the theme of My Identity. It was designed for KS3 students but could be used to support older or younger if supported. My Identity is a initiative launched in the UAE to increase the awareness of local customs and traditions. A Tarsia puzzle requires students to match up sides of triangles to form a hexagonal shape. They are brilliant for revision and get students to think hard. I use these at the starts of ends of lessons and they can take 10-20 minutes depending on your class’s confidence in the material. All materials are provided here including student instructions, student puzzle pieces and teacher answers. All images have been acquired through a search engine filtered to labelled for re-use. Enjoy!

Oxford University Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson UCAS Applications

Oxford University Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson UCAS Applications

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Oxford University’. 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!

Drawing Out Of Chaos: Sample

Drawing Out Of Chaos: Sample

Hi! This is a sample of one of my current projects - I have been using modular exponentiation to create regular line drawings for anybody to colour in. (of varying difficulties) This pack contains 9 drawings selected from my vast catalogue that can be used everywhere from classrooms to coffee tables, perhaps as a therapeutic activity to start off the day for your students. Please leave a review so I know what you think of them, and whether I should add more - after all, there are more of these drawings than there are atoms in the universe. Hope you enjoy! Harry
