CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

CHINA- Creative and independent activities- SEN/ G+TFRIENDLY

Collection of lessons and worksheets that I created for a particularly challenging year 7, with a wide academic gap and poor literacy skills. The students really enjoyed learning about China and it’s particularly good to run the SoW over the Chinese New Year. Green Pen and reflective tasks to help the students progress alongside engaging topics and lot of high level vocab. All tasks scaffolded and ppts have teacher instructions and samples. Extension tasks with every lesson. Please review if you download! Thanks :)

An independent entire lesson that I set as cover work. The students engage well with this activity and enjoy learning about the Panda’s and the vocabulary which is varied to challenge G+T students. There are 3 separate tasks, which have potential to be peer assessed and shared, the last task is arguing against a quote and with sentence starters success criteria. Please review if downloaded!

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of  CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

SEN friendly carousel featuring 4 different habitats of CHINA. Fully DIFFERENTIATED.

Students consistently enjoy this lesson and enjoy learning about the unique animals and plants of each region. Depending on the class, this carousel could last 1-2 lessons and involves each student travelling to different habitats and completing a range of diverse and engaging tasks indepedently. You will need to set up the classroom into 4 large tables which can seat 1/4 of the class. I usually blue tack the sheets to the desks and surrounding walls and double print so that everyone can choose which tasks they’d like to complete at each station. Lots of potential for PA of answers and I usually put this work on display and talk through the IUCN red list/show them videos of the animals in China.

Video: Learn how fish is processed

Video: Learn how fish is processed

Learn how fish is processed in this short video. This fish is going to be washed. Washing the fish will remove the slimy, slipperiness from the skin before it is prepared. The fish travels up the conveyor belt to the water. After it has been washed, it will be filleted. This fish is called plaice. Plaice is a type of flat fish. When fish is filleted, the parts that are good to eat are kept and the rest will be thrown away. These people are experts at filleting fish. Look how quickly they can work. They can fillet thousands of fish a day. Such a large number of fish are not needed all at once so some of the fish will be frozen. These people are putting the fillets of fish onto a large roller. The roller takes the fish into a big deep freezer. The fish is frozen solid very quickly. Now the fish is frozen, it can be kept like this for several weeks if necessary, until the factory needs it for the next process. It may also be sold like this, ready for someone to defrost and cook at home. These people are sorting out pieces of frozen haddock. The haddock is going to be coated in bread crumbs and then fried. First the haddock is coated with batter. Then it is covered in bread crumbs. Finally, the fish is cooked. The fish pieces are then frozen. All this fish is frozen solid. The fish is packed into bags and weighted to make sure customers get the right amount. The last stage is to pack the fish into boxes. The boxes are then taken away to be sealed and put in cartons. These are boxes of cod. Every box gets stamped with a best before date.
