One worksheet which is double-sided and includes THREE activities about the 5 K’s in Sikhism- an essential for your topic! Activity 1- Describing the objects using a table and answering questions.

The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

The New Pupil: Short Story and Imaginative Writing Unit

This unit of work comprises of a short story about a new pupil coming to school who is considered different by the others. This should lead to some discussion about what makes people considered different. The pupil is bullied throughout the day, with the bullying getting progressively worse. The reader learns the bullies own life issues. The story teaches an important moral message and leads to many possible discussions. Many of these are introduced in a worksheet asking the pupil to note their thoughts on the story in detail, with many questions and discussion points raised. The unit then becomes an imaginative writing unit. Various elements of the short story are used as a springboard for the pupils to plan then write their own story about a new pupil coming to a school and being considered different. The unit could be used as part of an English course and should last for a half term if taught once a week. It could be used in late Primary School or early Secondary School. It is also a very good unit to teach to older SEN pupils.

GCSE Maths/Functional Skills- Probability Spinners Card Match

GCSE Maths/Functional Skills- Probability Spinners Card Match

A matching card activity to reinforce that probability ranges from 0 to 1. Learners have to match color spinners to the correct answer card. For example a spinner may have 2 red slices out of 5 slices and learners will have to find a card that says 0.4 chance of landing on red I use it as a paired activity, though could be individual, it gets learners writing probability as fractions and then changing them to decimals, also reinforces that the chance of something happening only ranges from 0 to 1.
