Computing - Algorithms and Programs

Computing - Algorithms and Programs

This is a lesson that I used to teach the children in my class about algorithms and programs in computing. It is an unplugged lesson, no computers required! It explains how coding works in a child friendly way. I used it with Year 4 at the beginning of our coding topic.

Minions behaviour chart

Minions behaviour chart

I created this Minions warning chart for my class this year. I printed this in landscape A3 and then printed and laminated little tags with the children's names on - but you could use pegs, or sticky labels as well. This works really well as my children love Minions and we always have a discussion about how some people are heading towards the 'purple' minions. I have used quite strong wording on this chart, as my class can be quite challenging, but you can alter this to use your own, or your schools' preferred language if you like.

What did the Greeks ever do for us?

What did the Greeks ever do for us?

This is a fun history lesson about the Greeks, and what the Greeks created that we still use today. Children are given the information on 9 different Greek inventions we still use today, and are then asked to prioritise each one. Which one is the most important to them? Why? It can generate a great discussion whilst teaching children a little about the Greeks. I used it as a "one off" during our Greeks Topic.

Making good choices lesson

Making good choices lesson

I created this lesson to open a discussion with my children about making good choices in the classroom and in general. There are several different activities within the lesson, and this took me about an hour to do, but you could just pick one short activity for starters, or do the whole thing.

Transition Classroom Treasure Hunt

Transition Classroom Treasure Hunt

This activity is designed for use during Transition time from one year to another. It is a great icebreaker for the children to learn about each other, and about where things are kept in their new classroom. I used it at the beginning of the year and it was a great success. You can edit to make it appropriate for the children in your class.
