It works well alongside topics about the Romans, volcanoes or extreme Earth. The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read and listen to the Escape from Pompeii story a number of times. In the first week, children will engage with the text through extensive discussion, drama and even creating a parachute volcanic eruption in order to increase their familiarity with the story. They will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is also a grammar focus on using powerful verbs and a chance to develop thesaurus skills. In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of Escape from Pompeii and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To use sensory descriptions To use a thesaurus to improve my writing To perform a poem as a group To use powerful verbs To prepare a short drama piece based on a text To write a descriptive recount To make a story plan To write my own narrative To edit my writing To make decisions about how to present my writing The PDF file contains ten full lesson plans and all pupil worksheets/resources.

Forest School: An Introduction to Making a FireQuick View

Forest School: An Introduction to Making a Fire

This lesson plan/ activity will guide you through having a fire with your children. It is intended for children aged 4-8 but can easily be extended for slightly elder children. The activity follows the Forest School approach to fire making and is an ideal means to introduce fire to children. the fire making is in a Kelly Kettle (Storm Kettle) and the plan guides you through the process of getting the children involved (gathering fuel) in order to boil water for their own hot chocolate! I have found this to be one of the most enjoyable sessions taught outdoors but I recommend it only be carried out when the practitioner has complete confidence in the behaviour of the chidlren. This suits nicely towards the end of a series of Forest School sessions and feeds beautifully into cooking on an open fire, which should follow the following week as a means of extending and imbedding the learning.
