3 x differentiated activity to help children practice their data handling skills.
LA children have a poster of aliens to count, sort and record on a bar graph.
MA children have a larger selection of toys on a poster to tally then record on a bar graph.
HA children have higher numbers of different types of food on a poster to tally then record on a bar graph.
There are also questions on the data for the children to answer afterwards.
I made this powerpoint for those few minutes that appear every now and again during the school day, just before dinner or breaktime or if the children just really need a quick break. I have used it countless times since I started teaching and it has always been popular with the kids, I used to leave them with a riddle 'cliffhanger&' - Sending them out to break without revealing the answer, they&';d spend all breaktime discussing what the answer could possibly be!
A quick and simple science investigation to show how plants use water. Just cut the end off a piece of celery and pop it in some red or blue food colouring - Eventually, the celery will have a red or blue tint as it absorbs the colouring, particularly on the end. We left it over the weekend to ensure nice bright results, but overnight would probably work too.
I made these blank booklets for my Year 2 class when we were doing information texts in literacy.
The booklets are differentiated for higher, middle and lower ability. Hope they save somebody some time!
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students.
