Ever looked upon a sea of grim faces? Break out a dance move, get the brain ticking, sit down and get back to work!<br />
My children love it (and secretly so do I!).<br />
One will be added each week. <br />
Please go to lastingliteracy.co.uk for more resources (though none of them involve dancing!).
This is a one of lesson to celebrate the Chinese new year.<br />
it is differentiated and has a link to a you tube music video.<br />
It allows students to create and to reflect upon own and others work.<br />
I have done this dance through most of January to different ages and they have all enjoyed it.
These 2 powerpoints were used in a unit of work with year 6 on the topic of 'People in Action'. We began by making card mannequins and posing them to create sports poses. Then they moved on the drawing each other whilst playing sport, using the 'movement PPT' to develop techniques. They then moved on to creating sculptures that conveyed movement out of silver foil (instructions on PPT).
To end the unit the children created flipbooks of a moving sports image, inspired by Eadweard Maybridge.
An open ended activity involving sorting and classifying, which was used as the main part of a Science lesson graded outstanding.
Children need to sort through strips of paper, each with a living thing printed on, and identify the 'energy source' 'producers' 'primary consumers' 'top consumers' (language used for year 4) and 'decomposers'.
Each link of the paper chain represents a transfer of energy in the food chain. This can also be extended to creating multiples chains as a food web.
Edit as needed :)
This Power Point is intended to be used in conjuction with a hands-on activity of dusting off artefacts from small trays of sand. This can be used at a 'stunning start' to the creative curriculum topic of Incredible Egyptians.
It is really effective as a stunning start to the Egytian Topic, to be used on the first day.
This is a simple starting point/ guide sheet for making outdoor sculptures using natural materials. A great, free art activity for the summer!
I printed these on A3 and laminated them, so that each group could take one with them wherever they went outdoors.
Other sculptures, such as those by 'Nils Udo&' also work really well.
These student encouragement cards are a great way to quickly recognize your students for their hard work and effort in your class. Positive feedback is so valuable in a teacher-student relationship. Before they leave your class, why not give a student an encouragement to leave with, to let them know how much you care and noticed their effort. <br />

The “Olympic Field Day Event Cards- 50 Olympic-Themed Field Day Events” product is a visual package of signs that can be used during large group school, church or community field day events. The cards serve to help field day volunteers, teachers, leaders and students easily understand the “Olympic-Themed” events by delivering specific instructions and providing attractive graphics depicting the activities. Without having to provide a great deal of verbal explanation to volunteers and teachers, your field day event can run easily and efficiently.<br />
Each individual event card contains the title, instructions for play, a graphic of the action taking place, a representative host country (including a background of the flag of the country and an athlete holding their flag) and a current, past or future Olympic sport that resembles the event in some way. These are “Power Packed” cards that are attractive, with a lot of information that can be discussed and explored prior to, during and after your Field Day!<br />
Inside the packet are 50 Olympic-themed Field Day Event Cards to be used on grassy-type fields, in a gym, on a hard surface and with water. Also included in this product is an event table that provides a general description, equipment needed and a set-up diagram for each event. The table can be cut in strips and handed out to the volunteers to help with the set-up and implementation of the events during the day. Most of the events are relay type events, however there are a few “large group team” and “rest and relaxation” events too. <br />
NOTE: Some of the events in this product are similar to Field Day events that are available in other packages I have designed. These cards however are unique and were created for Olympic-themed Field Days Events!
