Red Squirrel Colouring Sheet

Red Squirrel Colouring Sheet

This hand-drawn illustration of the Red Squirrel is a great way to stir interest within children for endangered animals. Colouring in is a symbolic way to give endangered species significance and worth. Children will naturally be curious to find out more, or this sheet could form part of a project to learn why this animal is declining in the wild? The Red Squirrel was once native to the United Kingdom, however the introduction of the grey squirrel led to the decline of these colonies. Efforts are being made to re-introduce the red squirrel to habitats around the United Kingdom, but the decline in numbers is a lesson in how man can affect nature. Colouring is a perfect means of relaxation, as well as a great tool for teaching colour, texture and of course, imagination.

Under the Sea Poem Frame + Example, Y2-4

Under the Sea Poem Frame + Example, Y2-4

This intriguingly illustrated sheet sets children dreaming, and the simple line starters prompt them to think up words for their thoughts. Extra-keen writers can add further description about the sea - and anything else related - on the wavy lines below. An example version, showing just one of the infinite ways the poem could be written, is supplied on a separate sheet. Prepare your class by studying and discussing sea flora and fauna, treasure and detritus, mythical creatures and characters, and sounds, shapes and colours, too. Consider caves, sand and rocks, the rusty remains of ancient shipwrecks, picnic items washed away, bubbles, echoes - all sorts! Build up banks of describing words, imagery, action words and onomatopoeias as you go, but informally, keeping the atmosphere as free as the sea. Alliteration might crop up (e.g. shimmery and shiny) but don’t force it. Let individual creativity flow!

Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Last week I found a small UK tech company which was giving out great computer prizes and no-one was entering them. I decided to use them to create a drawing competition in my class - after all what is more motivational to a class than a great chance of winning! I used it to share ideas about what makes a great invention. We discussed ideas of what would or would not win - then created our work of art. INVENT THE 2098 WORLD CUP Future Inventors, we have a new challenge for this week. The World Cup is about to start and it got us thinking: what will the 2098 World Cup look like? Flying referees? Virtual stadiums? Techno-vuvuzelas? Submit your ideas and the winner gets a FREE kit and see it become a project on Club Make! We accept ALL ideas: practical, fun to absolutely bonkers. Entering the challenge is super easy: just draw your idea and share it below! They accept submissions until the 24th of June at http://bit.ly/WinARobot.
