Hope this is of help to somebody.
I just couldn't find a decent map to use so ended up scanning and making my own to use. All you need to do is draw grid lines from A-H and 1-5 for the children to be able to use. Hope its a time saver!!
<p>I have been trying to find something like this but couldnt so instead I have made this welcome letter to send to my year 1 children at the start of the new school year to explain how year 1 will be different from reception and to ease the transition. Please comment on whether you find it useful.</p>
<p>I have just made this to display on the wall in the writing area of my year 1 classroom. Please rate, as if it is useful to others i will make and put more up for the different areas of continuous provision. Other topics covered: Assessment; Level descriptors/statements.</p>
This is a simple recording sheet that i have made and used with my year 1's when measuring an object's weight using different units e,g, cubes, pencils, rubbers, crayons, paper clips, and so on. Hope it is useful.
This powerpoint explains scale and links this to how measure distances on a map, through a step by step giuide through the process. In addition to the PPT there is a distances work sheet with seperate answers that get increasingly difficult and recap other key skills, such as 4 and 6 figure grid references.. <br />
This is a more interesting alternative to textbooks to help students learn about the five stages of the Demographic Transition Model.
Give out the note frames (in A3) and then have students rotate the information about each stage around - this is a 'market place' style activity, but moving the sheets is easier than moving students!
Each stage also has information on a case study country. These were chosen to align with the popular Nelson textbook, so absent students can copy up with ease.
I would welcome feedback on how the resources could be improved!
