This two-week unit of English work, based on the book 'The Great Kapok Tree', works well alongside topics about rainforests, sustainability and Mayans. It can also be used as a standalone English unit.
The ten lessons in this unit use drama, discussion and creative activities to help pupils to engage imaginatively with the text. Pupils will become familiar with the structure of dilemma stories and then write and edit their own dilemma stories based on The Great Kapok Tree. There is also a grammar focus on using direct speech and plenty of activities designed to develop vocabulary.
The English objectives covered in this unit are:
- To retrieve information from non-fiction
- To design a ‘great tree’ setting

This presentation looks at different types of aid and asks whether, on some occasions, donor countries are really being as generous as it first seems! It presents a table of the different types of aid with examples before going on to look at one long-term aid project in greater detail - the Nurturing Change Project in Narok County in South-West Kenya. Students are asked to consider the benefits of the project, specifically how it might help to close the Development Gap across Kenya. The presentation also features a WorldMapper map showing global patterns of maternal mortality. There are a number of tasks and useful images in this presentation.
This is a bundle of eight presentations which cover the part of the unit 'Changing Economic World'. It should be sufficient for a month's teaching, assuming two hours' tuition per week for a GCSE class. Purchased separately the resources would cost £28.00, but I've knocked that down to £2.00 a lesson in this bundle - a time-saving £16.00 for all eight of them.
6 sets of resources altogether! You will get over 10 sets of comprehension activities and texts! They are suitable for Years 4 to 6 and can be easily tweaked to suit your class. The following topics are included: Electricity, Sound, Tudors, Rainforests, Great Britain and Penguins.
There are also plenty of other activities included to work alongside the comprehension activities, such as Powerpoints, sorting activities and research challenges.
