A who said what activity. Pupils can look back through the book to find who said what or maybe they will even remember. Speech bubbles can be cut out to match up with the who said it..\nI am using this resource with two year 7 girls. One has downs syndrome and one has global learning difficulties. They really enjoyed the book.
This is a rainforest themed resource which involves the children in considering the hunting, cultivating, craft making and the building development of the village. The 3 lessons cover year 3/4 using and applying division at levels 2/4+.
This briefly tracks the pre-Christian festival dedicated to the goddess Cybele to the present day.
How will your class discover the special qualities of their mums together? Here are a few tried ideas to consider.
This is a (famous) American folk tale by A. E. Hunt which explores the aspirations of 3 trees and what they would like to become as mature trees. Essentially, they reach their ambitions by becoming a key object in the birth, life and death of Jesus finishing at Easter time.
**UPDATED May 2016** Thank you for all the positive comments and ratings.
This resource includes a 53 slide PowerPoint presentation, three activity worksheets, a mind map, and a quiz . I used them to teach the unit on sound with my Year 7 and Year 8 classes. Appropriate in KS3 or KS4.
By the end of these lessons, pupils will know:
1. that sound is made by objects that vibrate
2. that the frequency of vibration of the source is measured in Hertz (Hz)
3. how sound is made in different musical instruments
4. that a vibrating source causes the layers of air around it to move
5. that sound travels by compressing and expanding the surroundings
6. that sound travels as a longitudinal wave
7. that sound travels best through solids and worst through gases because of the arrangement of the particles
8. the relative speed of sound in different mediums
9. that sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum because there are no molecules
10. that sound waves detected by the ear cause the ear drum to vibrate
11. the structure of the ear
12. how sound is transmitted through the ear to the brain
13. that different people have different ranges of hearing
14. that the average human range of hearing is 20 to 20,000 Hz
15. that loudness is measured in decibels (dB's)
16. that 0 dB is the threshold of hearing and 130 dB's is the threshold of pain whilst 140 dB's causes damage
17. that loud sounds can have permanent and temporary effect on the ear
18. that some common causes of ear damage
19. that noise is unwanted sound
20. that a loud sound is produced by a large vibration and vice versa
21. that a high pitched sound is produced by a very frequent (quick) vibration and vice versa
22. that an microphone can change sound to electricity and that this can then be displayed on an oscilloscope
23. that the wave displayed on an oscilloscope is a transverse wave
24. how to identify the amplitude, the wavelength and the frequency of a wave
25. recognise the link between the loudness of the sound and the amplitude of the wave
26. recognise the link between the pitch of the sound and the frequency/wavelength of the wave

Here are updated Science Assessment forms for KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2, along with guidance for how to use the assessment. This is what we use in my current school and its proven to be a simple, straight forward assessment process. I hope this makes life easier for everyone. Can be adapted to other school assessment procedures.
This also covers "Working Scientifically" as well as all of the Science Units in the curriculum.
This simple five question exit ticket assessment covers pitch and volume and has a variety of multiple choice, fill in the blank and short answer. Students will have to give an example of a high pitch and low pitch as well as understand what causes the difference.
