These are two great resources that I have come up with that engage students more in citizenship, looking at body image, healthy eating and influence. There is room for great discussions on how YouTubers today influence young people for the good and for the bad. tried these two lessons out on my 3 classes and they really enjoyed the lessons as they can relate to it.

Back to School IB PYP Portfolio Cover Sheets

Back to School IB PYP Portfolio Cover Sheets

These IB PYP cover sheets can be used for the on-going working binder and/or for the IB PYP Portfolio. These sheets are designed to be used as a mini reflection sheet as the you introduce each new unit of inquiry. There are two forms of the portfolio sheets and are created to make the children think about the new central idea and the lines of inquiry as they write them on the cover sheet. The second type asks the children to think about the new central idea and to illustrate their thinking about it, along with noting down any questions/inquiries that may have as you introduce the unit. UK & USA spelling. They are great to separate each unit of inquiry within the daily working binder or to use as a cover sheet for each unit within their portfolio. I have used these sheets also within our Student Led Conference preparation. Easily differentiated and suitable for grades 2-6. You will find a collection of 12 new unit sheets, titled with the name of each theme. Use them with:Introducing new units.End of unit reflectionsPortfoliosStudent Led Conferences. You may also be interested in my unit planners and reflection pack & other IB PYP resources which can be found in my store or on my blog.

KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

KS1 & KS2 PSHE 20 x Full Sessions [COMPLETE SET]

The download comprises 20 X PSHE lessons/sessions that can be used multiple times with the same group. The method uses a selection of debate and discussion activities to explore PSHE issues for KS1 and KS2 students. This download is designed to be a significant component of any primary school's PSHE provision. A demo of the method can be found here: https://goo.gl/DrcSqv [though the content is not relevant to PSHE, it shows how the approach works] The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues. The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats]. The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes. The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity. The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227 A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86 This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]
