This is a video I have made following a trip to the trenches. It is backed by 'only remembered' by The McCalmans and In Flanders Field Poem both taken from the CD : Far, Far from Ypres produced by Greentrax Recordings Ltd.
My husband is laying flowers on the grave of his great uncle, the soldier who is shown in the photograph.
This is a PowerPoint to accompany an assembly based on Remembrance for use around 11th November. It covers the focus for remembrance, why it is important and has the story of the sacrifice of the Hearts of Midlothian 1st division football team as the main focus. When music is added to the start and end, makes a very moving assembly (some staff and pupils even left with tears in their eyes last year). Should you use this resource, please leave feedback. Thank you.
Has that pile of books been sitting on your desk for over a week? Why not print out some stickers and get sticking! I use a range of stickers to encourage student feedback. It's an excellent way to save some time but also encourage a dialogue. Credit to A. Wilkes for inspiration. You will require various label size papers but there are some standard envelope ones. Sticker sizes include: standard address label, 25x25, 64x64 and others. Comments are appreciated. This paper can be purchased online and put into any printer. Comments are appreciated.

Maya Assembly or Class Play<br />
Cast of 30 (easily adjusted up or down)<br />
Duration: Around 20 minutes<br />
Self-important kings, moody gods, ...not to mention that chocoholic! Our narrator finds his/her work cut out as usual, keeping things moving along smoothly - within the normal time confines but this time working to a Maya calendar - just enough time to cover those 20 days - in words and numbers, Maya style of course!<br />
Set of Guided Reading scripts also available – 5 scripts, 6 speakers each.<br />
Part of large Ancient Civilizations collection written by Sue Russell available off TES and www.plays-r-ussell.com <br />
Sample Text:<br />
Lord Pacal: I am the great Lord Pacal! I ruled for 68 years, from A.D. 615 to 684.<br />
(Enter Child 8 holding up Classic Period banner)<br />
Child 8: This was at the beginning of the Classic Period – A.D. 600 to 900.<br />
Narrator: The Classic Period, you say? What was so classic about it?<br />
Child 8: This was when the Maya were at their most successful – their peak time, if you like.<br />
Narrator: So let’s hear about their achievements during that time.<br />
(Exit Child 8)<br />
Lord Pacal: How about we start with … me?<br />
Narrator: (Aside, sarcastically) Why didn’t I hear that coming?<br />
Lord Pacal: (Holding up pictures) Now. If you look very carefully you can see me, linking the realm of my ancestors to that of the gods.<br />
Narrator: Ah! I’ve heard about that sacred kingship!<br />
Lord Pacal: But that’s not all!<br />
Narrator: (Aside) I didn’t think it would be!<br />
Lord Pacal: I was also the guarantor of fertility, rain and crops – here, see on these pictures! And that’s not all!<br />
Narrator: (Sarcastically) Really? Now there’s a surprise!<br />
Lord Pacal: I was also a magnificent warrior!<br />
Narrator: (Sarcastically) Really?<br />
Lord Pacal: Oh, I know. Who’d have thought it! All this in just one life time!<br />
Narrator: Amazing!<br />
Lord Pacal: Course, I had to make sure people didn’t forget me.<br />
Narrator: As if!<br />
It's always nice to give your students something Christmassy to work towards as it gets closer. I've updated this resource due to it's popularity. This 10 page booklet can be printed in colour or black and white. Students can work through the different activities suggested in one go or once a week. I've used these resources with different ages but it would work best for lower secondary or primary school. The resources tell the Christmas story, look into traditions today and explore how Christmas was celebrated in the Tudor and Medieval period. The additional Powerpoint may also be used for other activites. Comments are appreciated. Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse".
