As an NQT starting in January, this has helped a great deal alongside the planning as I have never used the NLS archive to plan and it's been taking some getting used to. Thanks for saving me a lot of stress!
I have searched everywhere for a booklet just on transition activities from Year R to Year 1. I found lots for KS2 and Year 1 to Year 2. I therefore gave up and created one of my own. A thread is also available. Please keep updating it. I will keep updating the booklet periodically so that we have a book full of wonderful activities.
If you would like to add one of your own please email it to me and I will add it and update the booklet ASAP.
Here is a well prepared power point about astronauts. As an activity, I got the students to draw them as a space person in the middle of their books. On one side they were to write down all the facts they learned about astronauts and the other side was about how they would live life as an astronaut using the supporting questions at the end of the PP.
Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors.
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors.
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy!
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted.
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop. I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource!
AUGUST UPDATE: Even more resources added and price reduction to celebrate over 100 downloads of this resource.
