Mountains - Geographical Land forms: Blue Mountains, Sydney

Mountains - Geographical Landforms: Blue Mountains - This resource has a notebook and a worksheet. This notebook looks at mountains and their features. It focuses on Blue Mountains in Sydney, but you can easily change that feature to your local mountains. It assists students in using maps. It has a fun activity of dressing Ed Sheeran for walking in the mountains. I also used that page and placed my students’ heads on the body, so that it was personalised so they could be dressed on the interactive whiteboard and on paper to walk in the mountains. There are also some integrated literacy skills to match aspects of the mountain as well as a writing sheet. It was created for students with special needs (SEN) for teaching life skills but can be used as a valuable resource for early years literacy. There is an accompanying visual symbol board to print.

Australian Homework Project

Australian Homework Project

Students choose from nine homework tasks linked with the topic, Australia. They choose at least one activity from each section (English, Creative, Investigative). Designed to be completed over a period of a half term. There are a wealth of open ended tasks that encourage the student to take ownership over their homework, with the option of completing more tasks if they wish to. The other benefit of the projects are that they allow for independent learning and encourage parents to get involved if they wish to.

Famous Buildings from around the World.

Famous Buildings from around the World.

This is a resource that I use to extend pupils learning of famous buildings from around the world. It includes a selection of printable images of famous buildings along with pre made labels to allow pupils to sort and match the pictures with the names of the buildings. The resource includes two worksheets. The first is a matching activity and the second worksheet is a research frame for pupils to go online and research a famous building along with facts. I normally use this as an extension into the work of Hundertwasser and allow the pupils to re-design a famous building using Hundertwassers quirky style. This is also useful as a Geography task as an online research frame for younger pupils.
