If you are interested in something that is a different yet meaningful cross-curricula learning experience with elements of: wonder, awe, poetry, philosophy, science, nature, geography, team work, art, appreciation of nature and so much more, then this is for you.<br />
This lesson is called the magical lesson of wonder because that is the desired outcome. A cynic may think that this is just observing nature through microscopes but it is so much more than that in part due to the fascinating web resource used for the lesson.<br />
Suitable for any age or KS (but designed for KS2 or KS1) as the element of wonder and magic is something that never tires.<br />
You will need microscopes or magnifying glass (USB microscopes ideally) and access to objects from nature or a selection you provide. <br />
Turn down the lights, roll down the blinds, play the music and begin the magical lesson of wonder
This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book - Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny - can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.

Are you looking for examples of life in Ancient Egypt? I have collected together 30 highly informative drawings and photos of life in Ancient Egypt. These are a great way of exploring how Egyptians lived, worked and spent their time. These photos will help to stimulate questions and suggestion answers.<br />
You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different materials being shown in each of photos.<br />
You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about Ancient Egypt.<br />
The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different Egyptian objects and artefacts. The students can then discuss how they think each one was used. <br />

About this lesson.
This lesson is one of a set of 4, these are titled:
L1 Cells, tissues and organs.
L2 Gas exchange and alveoli.
L3 Breathing (inhale and exhale).
L4 Skeleton, joints and muscles.
You may find it useful to buy all the lessons in the set as they are linked together (for example a homework maybe given in one lesson and then tested in another).
Squared paper with blocks of unifix on. Designed for children in KS1 to be able to describe different patterns to their partner. Using direction vocabulary 'left', 'right', 'above', 'below', 'next to', 'underneath', 'diagonal', colours and counting.
We have been learning about four of the world faiths: Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam. We have written a summary of the key beliefs and features of each religion below.
Summaries of 4 major world religions (I gave this to chdn in 4 groups of 6 and asked them to present the information) beofre writing up summaries of their findings on the attached worksheets.
Based on the Way, the Truth and the Life series.
**UPDATED August 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

In this Science lesson, children consider which foods are best for growth and muscle reparation (proteins) and which foods are best for giving us energy (carbohydrates). One of the activities asks children to sort different foods into a table, deciding whether they are best for growth or activity. They then create a diet for an athlete and a diet for a child using what they have learnt. They should be able to explain why they have chosen the foods they have as well as explaining the differences between the two diets.
