In this lesson children will learn all about Mayan written language, their hieroglyphics, glyphs and logograms.<br />
After an engaging multimedia teaching input, they will explain their understanding of the objective and go on to draw comparisons with how we communicate in the 21st Century. <br />
This is then followed by an activity that enables the children to design their own logograms/hieroglyphics in a Mayan style. <br />

Up to 3 art lessons including: PowerPoint, colour instructions (for the children), self assessment plenary sheet, extra writing activity (for any early finishers) and teachers' notes. <br />
Easy to teach as the instructions add an element of reading comprehension, simply hand them the instructions and see if they can figure out what to do - developing lots of thinking and teamwork skills (alternative approaches are also suggested in teachers' notes).<br />
2 - 3 separate lessons in 1 - as the artwork is created in stages with potentially fantastic end results perfect for displays.<br />
Children will communicate feelings and moods with colour, practice numerous art techniques, experiment before committing to their finished work and reflect on their success, all with commonly found art materials in primary schools. <br />
Multiple options for the materials used you don't need to exactly follow the suggestions - this is explained in the teachers' notes.
A script for a class assembly about the life of a Roman soldier. Suitable for a lower Key Stage 2 class. There are 22 parts or 'characters' however some of these may be divided into smaller parts for a larger group.
This fun yet challenging, cross-curricula lesson has elements of: computing, history and writing, all built into a lesson centred around independent learning.<br />
Children will complete a series of engaging tasks including labelling a graphic of a Mayan man with researched information on clothing and possessions, learning what a person from that time may have owned and building their understanding of life was really like in the time period. They then complete 3 written activities and an extension activity based upon that knowledge they have gained. <br />
Activities include framing historically-valid questions, critical thinking and drawing comparisons: all aspects of the new 2014 curriculum. The activities are designed to elicit a deeper level of thought and understanding of the era. <br />
Can be taught as two separate hour long lessons but better over one longer session, contains starter and plenary, made for KS2 but accessible to higher ability KS1 and lower ability KS3.
This fantastic, fun, challenging, cross-curricula lesson is packed with learning and has elements of: computing, history, writing and speaking and listening, built into a lesson centred around independent learning and research. Children will be using and applying the historical learning they acquire creatively, as they work through the challenges of the lesson. An optional competitive element, combined with the fun of potentially becoming a Time Detective (and earning a Time Detective badge) create added motivation and increased engagement towards the learning. Children research in a holistic way building up a bigger picture of life the time period and then present their creations providing you with an assessment opportunity and a chance to decide the winners. The lesson ideal for either the beginning, middle or end of a history topic or unit. Can be done in an hour but better over two, contains starter and plenary. Made for KS2 but accessible to more able KS1 and less able KS3
