Chinese New Year: This is a beautifully illustrated activity for children to retell the ancient story of the Naming of the Years (the traditional Chinese story of how each year became named after a particular animal). <br />
This TESiboard ( http://tesiboard.co.uk ) activity has 3 background scenes for pupils to re-tell the story, or write their own versions. Characters can be dragged into place. There is an optional text area for pupils to type in their own words.<br />
This is an interactive resource - click the weblink to launch it. <br />

<p>After lots of requests it’s finally here - a collection of 10 activities to help introduce children to entering formulae into spreadsheets. Starts at the basics of cell referencing and using simple formulae, moving onto more complex formulae (e.g. SUM, MIN, MAX, AVERAGE) and ending with some modelling problems and maths investigations for children to complete. I WOULD LOVE TO READ ANY FEEDBACK / COMMENTS YOU HAVE :-) Topics also included: Interpreting data.</p>
Printable 'mats' containing the four VCOP pyramids (with all the levels for KS2 and with just the first three levels for KS1) and a selection of writing tips for children to follow (e.g. how to use speech marks properly, explanations of the different homophones etc.).

It's always nice to give your students something Christmassy to work towards as it gets closer. I've updated this resource due to it's popularity. This 10 page booklet can be printed in colour or black and white. Students can work through the different activities suggested in one go or once a week. I've used these resources with different ages but it would work best for lower secondary or primary school. The resources tell the Christmas story, look into traditions today and explore how Christmas was celebrated in the Tudor and Medieval period. The additional Powerpoint may also be used for other activites. Comments are appreciated. Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse".
