This clip shows how a head teacher is putting a more creative learning culture into his school as he feels it will improve standards and the children will enjoy learning more. He visits his old school which he took out of special measures with the help of introducing creativity.
In this Key Stage 2 literacy ‘Lesson Starters’, suitable for Years 3-6, each of the five short video clips provides a stimulus for pupils to employ a range of persuasive writing techniques. The first clip takes animals as a starting point - three children show us their pets, telling us why they are wonderful and giving one or two disadvantages or problems in looking after them. The remaining clips focus on the local neighbourhood, pros and cons of wearing school uniform and a campaign about smoking.
This programme reveals how the use of multi-sensory teaching can help dyslexic children become independent learners and boost their self esteem.
It is crucial that children with dyslexia are encouraged to believe in themselves and to become independent learners from an early age.
Kate Bodle, a specialist in teaching dyslexic children, works at Ewelme Church of England School in Oxfordshire.
She uses a multi-sensory approach. Kate explains and demonstrates the approach in this programme.
The importance of teaching continuous cursive handwriting and the need to 'overlearn' is also covered.
In Great Lesson Ideas, teachers at Eleanor Palmer School, London, demonstrate fun primary maths games.
Headteacher, Kate Frood, and her enthusiastic staff use games to inspire their pupils, and share three of their best ideas - maths learning cleverly interwoven with some traditional fun and games.
A Year 3 class plays a multiplication game using die and a Year 6 class try to establish the value of the word ‘table’, having been given the numeric value of some of the letters.
Year 1 practise their 'counting on' skills in a simple dice game they call 'Bird Race'.
Three teachers share Great Lesson Ideas to boost pupils' writing skills - and all the resources you need to use these ideas.
The Super Sentence is a good regular KS2 activity which promotes understanding of different ways that sentences can be changed and improved. Next is The Wordscape, which stimulates students in the preparation of writing a description of a setting.
Then Spelling Games shows a variety of simple, fun activities, suitable for Key Stages 1 and 2, to help make spelling lessons more engaging and stimulating.
