8 Inspirational Colour Sketches

8 Inspirational Colour Sketches

These 8 lively, colourful pictures offer inspiration for story-writing, poetry-crafting, newspaper report inventing, and enhancement of the topics they reflect, which include: wild woods, migrating birds, ocean, sunset, jungle, wild animals (British and tropical), dragons, magic carpet rides, transport, myths and more. NB: I sketched and coloured the pictures by hand, adjusting them slightly with basic computer software, so expect spontaneity rather than professional artwork or machine neatness. I use them for all primary classes.

The School Travel Plan Pack

The School Travel Plan Pack

The School Travel Plan pack contains over 40 files to take you step by step through the process of creating an excellent School Travel Plan. The pack is designed to be used by class teachers, Parent Councils, School management, Local Authority staff and anyone who is involved in developing active travel in Primary Schools. The pack shows you how to involve pupils across the school in all stages of the process, in order to give the children ownership of the plan. This will transform School travel in your area. Writing a School Travel Plan is the foundation of real, lasting change to the school run at your school. It is also the start of a revolution in physical and mental health in the whole school community. When children and their carers walk, scoot or cycle to school they are establishing active travel habits which will help to keep them healthy throughout their lives. When traffic is reduced, active travel also provides opportunities for relaxed interaction, fostering positive relationships throughout the school community. When done well, the process of creating a School Travel Plan also provides a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary learning in a ‘real world’ context. Learning becomes meaningful to pupils across the school and those pupils are highly motivated by seeing the change that they themselves are bringing about. The only way to create a School Travel Plan which works is to involve pupils in the full process of creating and implementing such a plan. Without this, it is simply another document to gather dust. The School Travel Plan pack provides all the information and resources your school needs to create an excellent School Travel Plan and transform your school community. The pack is divided into ten sections, as described in the Information For Schools sheet: 1. Cover Page 2. About This Document 3. School Profile 4. Summary Of Problems 5. Evidence 6. Plan of Action 7. Promotion 8. Monitoring and Review 9. Maps 10. Evidence Portfolio Within each section are a range of documents, described as INFORMATION, RESOURCE or PLAN CONTENT. Information documents should be read before starting the section or activity. Resource documents are designed to be copied and used to complete an activity, such as worksheets. Plan Content documents are designed to be edited and included as part of your completed School Travel Plan. More information about how and why you should create a School Travel Plan, and about how to use The School Travel Plan pack is available for free at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/the-school-travel-plan-pack-information-and-how-to-use-the-pack-11945210

Magic Carpet Ride - display picture, hand-drawn

Magic Carpet Ride - display picture, hand-drawn

This serene scene will appeal to your children’s imagination, as they put themselves in the place of the happily gliding children. With the ocean, palm trees and setting sun below, and the soft, clear sky around them, this fantastical image will inspire your class to write, draw, discuss or enact the concepts conveyed. It could be used in combination with my magic mat poetry-writing sheet, for instance, available in my shop here. It will also brighten up a dark corner, of course!

Interactive reveal quiz template

Interactive reveal quiz template

This is an interactive PowerPoint template that allows people to create reveal quizzes with scoring - it uses macros and so sadly will only work on PCs and they need to be enabled when the PowerPoint is run. A sample quiz of famous landmarks is included to demonstrate how it works. When using the template add pictures to the PowerPoint slides and then cover these pictures with autoshapes (rectangles, ovals, stars etc) and for each covering shape type on a points value - the more important what the shape covers the higher the number of points. Instructions are given on slide 3 too. This is the first version of this template so please send me constructive feedback, including ways it can be enhanced.

Family Fun Boxes - for Teachers and Parents

Family Fun Boxes - for Teachers and Parents

The goals of this program are to provide an opportunity for parents and children to enjoy books and reading together, and to encourage students to reflect on their experiences through the use of journals. This home - school connection will enable the teacher to use the journal portion of each activity as an evaluation tool for each student, and, during the year, the students will be able to progress through the journal writing stages as they gain confidence. Each Fun Box contains one or more books. Some of the books are at the child’s independent reading level, and others are meant to be read to the child. Children share the Fun Boxes with their families, reading and sharing the books, working on the activities that are part of each Fun Box, and then making an entry in the journal. Fun Boxes answer those requests for “homework”, and also provide a focus for parents who wish to help with their child’s education, but often do not know the best way to accomplish this.
