Beowulf Planning Pack (Anglo-Saxons)

Special offer: buy this resource today and you'll also get a free Christmas bundle of 12 festive resources worth £23, including our popular Christmas Riddles Lesson Pack! A complete unit of English work for Year 3/Year 4, with full lesson plans and pupil resources based on the Anglo-Saxon story of Beowulf. This popular pack is based on the version of Beowulf by Rob Lloyd Jones (Usborne Young Reading). There are other versions of Beowulf available for children, but this edition is most suitable for Lower Key Stage 2 and the work in this pack refers directly to the Usborne text. This ten-lesson English unit of work is based on the 2014 National Curriculum for Year 3 and 4. Many schools choose to use this text alongside the Anglo-Saxons history topic, although the plans are also designed to work as a standalone unit if required. The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read the whole story of Beowulf and to write their own hero myth based on the text. In the first week, pupils will engage imaginatively with the story of Beowulf through drama, discussion and a series of creative activities based on the text. They will become familiar with the structure of the story and the literary conventions of hero myths. There is also a SPAG focus on using powerful verbs, expanding noun phrases, using superlatives and placing commas in lists. Pupils will also have the opportunity to develop their inference skills. In the second week, pupils will use drama to develop ideas and extend their vocabulary. They will then plan their own hero myth and have the opportunity to draft and edit their stories before presenting them to an audience. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To create a mythical character To use superlatives To describe contrasting settings To use ‘power-of-3’ to expand noun phrases To use powerful verbs To draw inferences from details in a text To use ‘show-not-tell’ as a writing technique To describe how tension builds in a story structure To create tension in my writing To prepare a group performance To identify conventions in mythical literature To make a plan for my writing To write my own hero myth To find words in a dictionary To organise paragraphs around a theme To edit and evaluate my writing To present my story to an audience SPECIAL OFFER: New TES buyers can use code OUTSTANDINGOCT at checkout to download this resource for free!

Mental Health - Anxiety and Worries Group interventionQuick View

Mental Health - Anxiety and Worries Group intervention

The intervention Who is if for? This Anxiety and Worries Group intervention is for a group of up to six children and is led by a teaching assistant. The focus age range would be 7 to 11, although older pupils would probably benefit from this intervention. Children who worry a lot would be a good focus group for this intervention. It runs for approximately 40-60 minutes, weekly for six weeks. What does it cover? This Anxiety and Worries Group intervention covers emotions, relaxation, calming down techniques and learning objectives around anxiety and worries. Children will learn about emotions during each session and will also learn relaxation and calming techniques through the ‘relaxation time’. This knowledge and these skills will help them to become more emotionally literate. The warm-up games teach a variety of skills such as co-operation, team work, taking turns, communication skills, friendship, self-esteem and confidence. The coming together of a group fosters a sense of belonging and therefore raises self-esteem. Every opportunity should be taken to promote belonging and friendship. Relaxation exercises will help children to manage their anxiety and these are visited each session. Information on Anxieties and worries It is important to mention that anxiety is such a big problem and affects people in different ways and at different things. Sometimes there appears to be no reason for the anxiety. This intervention is about giving children the knowledge to help themselves and to gain a little understanding about what anxiety is. It is NOT about fixing children’s problems but about supporting them through their problems. Anxiety work needs to be done by professionals who have training in counselling or psychology. An ELSA or TA can offer knowledge and support and it is important that this line is not crossed and boundaries are clear. By giving children the self-awareness, knowledge and some relaxation skills you are empowering them to help themselves cope. If you are ever worried about a child then please do refer them on to professional services so they can get the help they need. What’s included in the pack? A planning booklet with 6 session plans. Circle time rules Warm up games for circle-time Assessments Emotion wheels Emotion wordmat Certificates Five Star Breathing poster NEEDS to know Poster Emotion cards NEEDS to know cards Anxiety physical symptoms cards Where in your body worksheet Anxiety cards Coping strategies poster Worry tree Thought bubbles (ants) Changing those thoughts worksheet Zap anxiety poster My Five a day plan ELSA/Teaching Assistant notes

Lego TherapyQuick View

Lego Therapy

This is a Lego therapy resource pack which is designed to aid any practitioner to successfully deliver a course of play sessions. The core contents of the pack can be tailored to different age groups or abilities by the practitioner. It has twenty-four different pages which contain a brief introduction and then explains each team member's role and job description. It also has visual images to aid with colours, shapes and questions that could be asked to help the children engage and communicate with each other. There is also a tracker sheet which is great for following each child as they develop or it highlights if they need additional support. Lastly, the practitioner should have basic knowledge of play therapy and if not this pack could further develop their own personal skill set. I hope this pack is received well and for added usage just laminate, and most of all HAVE FUN.
