Ever looked upon a sea of grim faces? Break out a dance move, get the brain ticking, sit down and get back to work!
My children love it (and secretly so do I!).
One will be added each week.

This is a one of lesson to celebrate the Chinese new year.
it is differentiated and has a link to a you tube music video.
It allows students to create and to reflect upon own and others work.
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.
