Romans & Celts: Home-Learning Project

Hello Fellow Teachers, Here is a Romans and Celts-themed, home learning project that will be used whilst the children are off school and we’re in lockdown. It’s perfect for distance learning because it contains tasks that can be completed independently. This resource spreads across 5 tasks (could be set weekly or daily) which last for an hour-long each. The tasks are focused around The Romans, The Celts and Hadrian’s Wall. This task would work great for KS2 (Key Stage 2) and it fits in with the Year 3 national curriculum expectation for humanities. I upload my tasks as both an editable .docx / Word document, and as a PDF in case the alignment doesn’t work on your computers. Some of my resources use Primary Penmanship font, which can be downloaded for free from the following link: https://www.dafont.com/kg-primary-penmanship.font If you’re looking for other home-learning projects, here are links to the other resources I’ve put together for my KS2 children.

Help your children to improve their descriptions and narratives by using these colour vocabulary sheets in your literacy lessons or on display. They equip pupils with exciting words for ‘red’, ‘blue’, ‘green’ and everything in between! I have been using these colour thesauruses as part of a Writing Toolkit (coming soon!) that I give to my class at the start of the school year. After modelling how to use them in writing, the children then independently use stronger, more effective colour descriptives when describing settings or characters- I even see them cropping up in their speech! BOTH SPELLINGS OF COLOR/COLOUR INCLUDED! Included in this download: A display poster and pocket-sized version of the color vocabulary grid PDF versions of the resources .docx Word versions of the resources for editing purposes 2 fonts to edit your resources with UK/AU/NZ/CA version using ‘colour’ spelling Looking for the full Writing Toolkit? Due to be completed by September 1st 2020 I hope this product saves you time and stress, Happy Teaching! Miss Austin
