Activity based on a toy shop having a sale. Chn will need to work out the percentage in order to find out how much the customers will be saving and then what the new price of the item is. This can be an individual task, or in pairs or small groups. I have used this with a low year 5 group and a middle year 4 group. I've also used this to then set up a toy shop in the classroom where chn have had to actually price up the items.
After lots of requests it’s finally here - a collection of 10 activities to help introduce children to entering formulae into spreadsheets. Starts at the basics of cell referencing and using simple formulae, moving onto more complex formulae (e.g. SUM, MIN, MAX, AVERAGE) and ending with some modelling problems and maths investigations for children to complete. I WOULD LOVE TO READ ANY FEEDBACK / COMMENTS YOU HAVE :-) Topics also included: Interpreting data.
Printable 'mats' containing the four VCOP pyramids (with all the levels for KS2 and with just the first three levels for KS1) and a selection of writing tips for children to follow (e.g. how to use speech marks properly, explanations of the different homophones etc.). PLEASE WRITE A REVIEW IF YOU LIKE THIS RESOURCE
Full lesson. Normally done at the end of the unit (either as a HMK task before a closed book test or as an open book assessment) with printable essay writing frame, suggested sentence starters/structure and mark scheme which can be adapted for other topics.
This bundle contains a complete scheme of work for one year 7 topic (Norman Conquest), one year 8 topic (The Industrial Revolution)and one year 9 topic (The Holocaust - 4 lessons). This will save hours and hours of planning! 24 detailed lessons with literacy support and differentiated materials. All lessons have been taught by myself and are easy to follow.
This highly comprehensive and detailed PowerPoint looks in depth at 'The Roaring Twenties', 'The Great Depression' and how this laid the foundations for Hitler's rise to power. Throughout the presentation there is detailed study of primary sources as well as a link to a video clip showing the roaring twenties and the Great Depression.
The economic problems caused by the great depression are considered as well as statistical data regarding employment in Germany, seats held by the Nazi Party and The Dawes Plan.
Throughout the PowerPoint, there are key questions and mini tasks posed for discussion and paired/group work completion. At the end of the PowerPoint, there is time to refelect and debate how much the Wall Street Crash contributed to Hitler's rise to power.
This PowerPoint is fully editable and can be used over a series of lessons.
