I taught a short history topic on Grace Darling, using a painting as the main focus, to encourage evidence-based learning. The painting depicts Grace and her father rowing towards the rocks where the remains of the Forfarshire are resting, with the lighthouse in the distance.
<p>Some resources to study the famous person Grace Darling - some I have made myself, others I have found from the internet. Powerpoint is NOT mine by the way but I hope it helps all the same! The cross-curricular ideas are mine but not the planning grid.</p>
Differentiated word mats used with year 1 for story of Grace Darling. First page includes pictures for words and second page is for HA. Page 3 is intentionally blank and page 4 is an optional page that I copied onto the back of the word mats.
Small number lines to support 0 to 20 with a range of pictures.
My class struggle to hold and use larger number lines during carpet work and we always end up in a muddle!
Also it is very difficult to find 0 being used as a 'place holder'.
Nothing fancy and the story has been ‘dumbed’ down a little to reflect the age of my class (5 years old). But the flipchart might help someone else when working on a history topic, linked to ‘Seasides long ago’. This has been made for Activprimary running system.
This is a very simple, much dumbed down version of the story. I have removed the 'hanging' etc as I don't want to scare my 5 year olds.
There is no lesson plan with this powerpoint. The teacher would need to decide what objective will be met in the Readin Strands for Literature.
This lesson involves pupils working in groups to produce an election campaign for one of the claimants to the throne in 1066. (Before the Battle of Hastings lesson) The PowerPoint goes through the claimants to the throne in 1066 which allows students to work in groups for the election campaign task.
The CV worksheet provides students with extra information to support with the group task. The election task work sheet gives clear instructions alongside extension tasks to enable students to complete high quality group work.
Three differentiated worksheets, suitable for Year 1 & 2 pupils.

3 - Complete storyboard in the wrong order for less able pupils to cut out and sequence.
This lesson is an introduction to the mystery of the Tolland Peat Bog Man and what happened to him. This lesson is designed to get younger KS3 pupils questioning evidence. They have to make a decision as to whether he was murdered, committed suicide or it was an accident. Pupils should work in pairs and the teacher drip feeds the information gradually to encourage pupils to form opinions and have them challenged. They then can present their decision to the rest of the class using the evidence.
Contains three worksheets, full lesson plans and a fully animated Powerpoint presentation like a news report.
