“What kind of person am I?” is a self-contained classroom topic for students from KS3 that introduces them to exploring personal values and how these can impact on life and career choices. It supports the learning outcomes in the Association for Careers Education and Guidance (ACEG) framework for career and work-related learning at Key Stage 3 and provides good evidence of lesson planning. Students will discuss what personal values are and how these could affect choices and behaviour. They will also gain confidence and self-esteem by identifying some of their own positive values .
Two files are included with this topic. The first file is a set of instructions, worksheets and suggested running order for the activities making up an extended lesson plan. The plan includes differentiated learning goals, reflective questions and a “before and after” review of learning relating to this topic. The second file is a slide show presentation which can be used with a whiteboard or pc/laptop and projector, to add structure to the lesson for students. The slideshow has the same running order as the lesson plan, and includes engaging and high quality images to add interest.
There are two photocopiable worksheets and a poster here. There is a writing frame that encourages children to write about their family, a fun quiz to find out what kind of friend you are and a poster that lists the different types of bullying there are. These sheets accompany the Franklin Watts book: 'Let's Read and Talk About: Family and Friends'. They work best when used in conjunction with the book, but also stand alone.
Using theatrical skills to dramatize the workings of the digestive tract, students will gain understanding of the role of the different organs in digestion by playing their parts, learn how nutrients from food are absorbed in the digestive tract, and discover that chemicals in our food may also be absorbed in the digestive tract.
In this at home lesson, students will learn to use their balancing and group skills to protect their Emperor penguin egg in harsh conditions. Students will read a story read aloud about penguins and pretend to be an Emperor penguin carrying an egg (using a ball or any other object) using their feet to understand how they care for their young.
This is a PowerPoint all about spring. It's in two parts: the first part is fifteen pages and includes new plant life, young animals and insects that appear in spring, and a section on animals in hibernation.

By the end of this series of lessons, pupils will:
1) be introduced to the discovery and history of magnets
2) know the elements that have magnetic properties
3) observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others
4) compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
5) describe magnets as having 2 poles
6) predict whether 2 magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing
7) know that materials contain groups of spinning electrons called domains
8) know that the domains are aligned in magnetic materials
9) know that the domains of a non-magnetic material are not aligned
10) learn about magnetic fields by plotting with compass, representation by field lines
11) learn about Earth’s magnetism, compass and navigation
