I have put together a batch of my resources which I hope will be useful for parents at this time.
This education pack is designed to help teachers introduce aspects of Indonesian life, language and culture to their pupils aged 7-11. It contains ideas and activities that can be used in lessons and assemblies,factual information and resources to help your pupils develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of the biodiversity, stories and culture of this fascinating country. Your pupils can learn how to greet a friend in an Indonesian language, get creative making shadow puppets, kites and telling stories, cook a traditional recipe and find out about other aspects of Indonesian culture using our wide range of classroom resources and activities. The materials are designed to be flexible and adaptable for use in a variety of settings. They can be used as starting points for individual lessons or form part of larger cross-curricular joint projects involving collaboration with a partner school over a number of subjects. Please note that the interactive elements of this resource will only work when the PDF is downloaded and not when it is opened in browser.
This is a channel of online lessons that I have put together for children learning at home. I have started with the Year 3 maths and English NC objectives and I aim to upload a lesson every day.
A standalone lesson on the features and use of suspense in ‘The Speckled Band’. Designed for home learning and for post-reading of the story. Contains support for an analysis paragraph and creative writing homework.
A Comprehension booklet designed to broaden student’s cultural capital. This comprehension booklet covers articles that are contextual to “To Kill a Mockingbird” but also looks at articles written about authors such as Stephen King. This booklet aims at making students more contextually aware of texts that are studied at GCSE level. This includes: -Questions and extension tasks -Articles aimed to develop student’s contextual knowledge of texts and authors.
This unprecedented COVID-19 crisis has brought debates around freedom of speech into the spotlight. This resource provokes thinking about what people should be allowed to say, and who should make the rules. These activities challenge learners to think about questions like: Should people be allowed to say whatever they want? Is censorship necessary during a pandemic? What’s more important - freedom to say what you want, or safety from harmful words? Learners can complete the activities on their own but it’s even better if an adult can push them to develop their reasons and see other perspectives. The reflection questions can provoke extended discussions. For example, when (if ever) is it acceptable for a leader to withhold information?
Help learners separate fact from fiction by understanding how conspiracy theories start and spread. This resource gets learners thinking about questions such as: What is a conspiracy theory? How do conspiracy theories spread? Who is responsible for stopping their spread? The activities look at fake stories about the coronavirus and investigate the dangers of letting conspiracy theories go unchallenged. Learners can also explore deeper questions about free speech, censorship and the role of social media.
Year 2 Home learning - very quick home learning including spellings, common exception words, maths, sequences, simple addition sentences. Great for Autumn Term.
A home learning pack to revise basic Spanish in case of school closures. The pack includes lots of fun activities: matching, word searches, fill in the missing gap and labeling the picture.

This resource is a home learning activity I sent out to my class. It is a week’s unit on writing a set of instructions. It includes a warm up, planning and writing stage split into easily accessible activities.

A resource for KS5 German looking at pandemics in general (a reading text from Planet Schule with comprehension and translation tasks) and the Coronavirus in particular (a listening task from YouTube with questions to follow). I created it for a double lesson of remote learning so it should take around 1.5 hours to complete.
This resource helps learners think for themselves about the power of headlines and the ways newspapers present their stories. These activities provoke thinking on questions like: How should newspapers choose their stories? What responsibilities do they have to their audience? How should the media report on a crisis? After making editorial decisions, learners are encouraged to investigate the current news cycle and view it from different perspectives. Challenge your children to think deeper about the stories they see everyday and develop their news literacy and communication skills: reasoning, open-mindedness, scepticism and speaking up.
These activities challenge learners to think about where they get their news from and to question what they are reading. It’s pakced full of questions like: What are the best and worst ways to get news? When can we trust what we read in the news? Why might news matter more to some people than others? What makes a story hit the headlines? We suggest supporting your child to complete the activities. We have developed this resource from a previous classroom version, available here:economistfoundation.org/resources
