Endangered Species Cross Curricular Topic Planner

(0)
This Endangered Species cross curricular topic planner details the curricular outcomes (ACfE) being targeted as well as lesson ideas and suggestions for each relevant curricular area. This planner is aimed at 2nd Level/KS2 pupils. It also links to the separate topic of the Water Cycle (also available via my shop) and ties the two in together. There are accompanying worksheets on for sale separately to go alongside both topics also. These will all be on sale soon as a bundle. However, both topics would be appropriate as stand alone if desired.

33 pages of cross-curricular, project-based learning resources based on the history of video gaming. PDF pack of mixed literacy, numeracy and history resources that cover National Curriculum KS1 and KS2 objectives (but based on a topic that would also be of interest to slightly older learners) plus a supporting powerpoint presentation. Perfect for homeschooling, as a homework project, to supplement other classroom learning, to use with SEN pupils, those with gaps in their KS1/KS2 knowledge or those who would simply benefit from a re-cap. Contents include: History of Gaming Contents Page No. 1 Cover Page 2 Contents Page 3 Sources of Information 4 - 6 The History of Gaming Information Sheet 7 - 8 History of Gaming Comprehension Questions and Answers 9 - 12 History of Gaming Wordsearch Puzzles (x2) and Answers 13 - 14 History of Gaming Crossword Puzzle and Answers 15 History of Gaming Homework Discussion Activity 16 - 17 History of Gaming True or False Quiz and Answers 18 Online Safety Information Sheet 19 Online Safety Grammar Activities (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs) 20 - 21 Online Safety Cloze Activity and Answers 22 - 24 History of Gaming Punctuation Activities and Answers 25 - 27 History of Gaming Time-line/Sequencing Activity and Answers 28 ‘Who Am I?’ Name the Video Game Characters Game Cards 29 - 33 History of Gaming Data Collection/Interpretation Activities and Answers (including Tally Charts, Bar Graphs, Frequency Tables and Pie Charts) History of Gaming Powerpoint Presentation available as an additional file included in the ZIP. I am a homeschooling mum of a 7 year old child with Asperger’s (and a range of other SEN), as well as a former secondary school/SEN teacher. Gaming is a particular interest of my child, as well as a great many other children, so I figured it would be good to use the topic as a motivational tool to support further learning. It has gone down well with him, so I figured that perhaps others may benefit from it too! I am only just getting started with selling my resources so I would be very grateful for any feedback.

Fire and Ice cross curricular topic and literacy planning for Key Stage 1

(1)
This is a fantastic and engaging topic for able year 1 and 2 pupils. I have included all the plans for geography, history, art, DT and Literacy with differentiated activities for each lesson. My class thoroughly enjoyed this unit . I have worked hard to make the topic as fun and cross curricular as possible. It covers the Fire of London and the Gunpowder Plot, culminating in their own newspaper front page with their art work on it. I am passionate about the children being excited and engaged in their learning and this is definitely a topic that lends itself to this. With Fire of London and Fire Station role play opportunities. As well as the chance to get the local fire brigade into school to make the learning come alive. The planning is very clear and easy to follow with differentiation for each lesson.

Music and ICT: Cross Curricular Topic Planner - The Four Seasons and Sounds of Nature

(0)
I have designed this music topic pack with the intention of covering various aspects of music education, along with the ability to include this within an integrated curricular planner. This topic brings ICT in throughout as well as easily lending itself to the inclusion of various other curricular areas, such as language, social studies, science, design & technology, ICT, drama, P.E. and art. This pack would be particularly beneficial if used in conjunction with a topic on the weather/seasons/nature. Elements could also be linked in well to a topic on Europe. Although some of the lessons may appear to be more ICT based than music, the aim is that the children expand their experience in all areas of music while using new technology. Some of the lessons are more traditionally musically based than others, but each one will provide a beneficial learning experience for the children. They are going to be gaining experience in a range of skills and abilities, such as playing instruments, composing, listening and discussing, working collaboratively, using music as an inspiration for other areas, being able to identify techniques used in music to portray different moods and images.
