The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

The World News Crossword - July 15th, 2018

In this week’s puzzles… (1) A crossword based on events in last week’s news. A search & cloze puzzle detailing Part 2 of the amazing rescue of the 12 boys and their football coach from the flooded cave in northern Thailand, A crossword about NATO, and there are no clues, and A crossword all about Belgium (which achieved 3rd place in the FIFA World Cup). In last week’s news… All twelve boys from the Wild Boars football team and their coach who were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand were rescued. The US president said NATO member countries aren’t contributing enough to NATO (even though countries don’t contribute anything). Britain’s Foreign Minister resigned because he didn’t like the state of Brexit negotiations. Nestlé products are banned from zoos in Melbourne and a man has taken Monsanto to court alleging its weed killer caused his cancer. George Clooney fell off his motor bike while in Sardinia. Justin Bieber got engaged, maybe. An American tourist shut down Vienna airport because of a live artillery shell in her luggage. Scorpions invaded Brazilian cities, sort of. And after 66 years, an Indian man finally cut his finger nails. Angelique Kerber and Novak Đoković won the Women’s and Men’s Singles at Wimbledon. France won the FIFA World Cup, but the most loved and most successful football team during the World Cup was The Wild Boars of Thailand.

Endangered and Extinct Animals - research and campaign leaflets.

Endangered and Extinct Animals - research and campaign leaflets.

These resources ask students to use websites and leaflets to research and better understand how animals are endangered or become extinct. The websites on the worksheets (including the CBBC site) have been recently checked to ensure access and leaflets are the property of the charities that made them. You can wither use these leaflets to accompany the ‘Effective Campaigning’ work sheet or any more recent campaign leaflets - perhaps look up ‘Stop the Cull’ leaflets, Donkey Sanctuary, Save the Elephants etc. I really hope you like these resources and please feel free to review or comment how I could make it even better. Also, I have lots more resources available - many of which are free as teachers already work too hard and don’t get paid enough! Enjoy!

Last Day - Memories

Children in year 6 are often asked to write something for their final assembly. I have created two sheets. Sheet one should give them ideas about what to write. Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet. Hope these two sheets will inspire the children to write either a piece of prose or to have a go at writing a poem.
