2014 is the Year of the Horse. I teach in Beijing and wanted to find a traditional story that my students can relate to while learning English. My Chinese staff told me that this is a very traditional story that all the children will be able to relate to. For English speaking students it can be a look into the traditional story telling of China, they always have a lesson to teach. And it can be used to go with other activities to help celebrate Chinese New Year.
<p>This is the traditional problem of how a man can cross the river, taking a hen, fox and bag of grain. There are pictures to cut out so that children can try to solve the problem practically, and also a suggested lesson plan.</p>
This game required the internet. It was designed as an IQ test. Do not be frightened by the Japanese writing (just click the big button and) as this game is brilliant for thinking outside the box, getting groups to work together and take their time with planning.
This activity works especially well if you make it practical and give roles to the students. I have used this with learners ranging from 14-adult. The quickest it has been done is 9mins and the longest I dont know - students were told to stop after 1 hour!
This is given to parents whose children need additional fine motor skills practice usually at the child’s termly review so it can be explained. This is usually around the summer term in Reception but can be at any time.
<p>A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.</p>
Short ‘o’ I have…Who has? Game is a fantastic method for students to practice reading and saying their short ‘o’ words. <br />

I have…Who has? Game is easy to play so students can get stuck into the learning quickly. The rules are simple. Distribute the cards evenly to a small group. Starting from the starter card students then must listen and think about which card they can play next. A good way to play this game is to have a group timer to see which group can complete it in the fastest time and then to see if they can beat this time. <br />
