Flying Away - bird migration poetry sheet + guide

Flying Away - bird migration poetry sheet + guide

This simple illustrated poetry frame celebrates the beauty of birds in flight and the wonders of bird migration. The theme will inspire your children’s imagination and ignite their poetic powers, spurred on by the sketches and line-starters. They’ll love thinking up similes to describe how the birds look and other aspects of them, and also thinking up their own developments and rounding-off line. The accompanying Guide Sheet offers suggestions for each line, in case handy for reading out as examples or prompting for, while encouraging independent thinking and word choices. Recommended for KS2.

WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

In the early 1860’s the colonies of Victoria and South Australia were involved in a race to see which one would become the first to finance an exploration team to cross the continent from the southern ocean to the northern shores. Such expeditions would take explorers through the unknown arid interior and on to the savanna lands of the tropics. The Victorian expedition, led by Burke and Wills, was lavishly funded and well resources. It left months earlier than the South Australian expedition team led by Stuart. Residents in each of the colonial capitals waited for news of progress and hopefully achievement. Both expeditions faced considerable hardship. The Burke and Wills expedition gained more interest, probably due to the disasters encountered on the return journey south; the events of the dig tree and the death of Burke and Wills. Stuart, although badly affected by the journey returned to Adelaide without losing any of his party of seven. In terms of dates the Burke and Wills group reached the northern areas before Stuart but the debate developed about the technical issue of actually standing on the northern beaches. Stuart managed this but Burke and Wills, for various reasons, did not. This is a piece of Australian colonial history which answers the question. The debate about who can claim the “first crossing” continues. Take your students to camp 119, Burke and Wills most northerly camp where they will find some answers. A question and research page is provided as an attachment. Reference to the unit on Stuart is provided if you wish to delve further into Australian colonial history.

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 EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

THE EPIC 1844-45 EXPLORATION EXPEDITION OF LUDWIG LEICHHARDT ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN SAVANNA

The German explorer Ludwig Leichhardt joins the group of European explorers who made long and arduous journeys across the “Great unknown” interior. Well - unknown to Europeans and colonists with settlements along the coastline. Join his epic exploration from Moreton Bay (Brisbane) to the very remote colonial settlement of Victoria on the shores of Port Essington. Follow his progress by map and description. Assist your students to become aware of the dangers faced. Understand why this long journey which was expected to take 4-6 months ended up taking nearly 14 months. Find evidence along the route by photographic inclusions. Recognise the challenges faced by members of the exploration party. Find out why the ultimate success of this exploration depended on the skills of two aboriginal guides in the group. Find out how Leichhardt contributed to the naming of features within the Australian Savanna. Work out why this expedition has been given the title of “epic”. The description, maps and photographs provide a record of the journey that had been labelled as “a failure” was to be praised as “a success”. The attachments are provided for the provision of hard copies. Your students can develop their own expedition map and the screens are numbered so that answers to the set questions can be located and filled in. You may decide to use the attachments as you screen the pages in class or you may used them as check questions when the unit has been completed. Ludwig Leichhardt is generally less well known than Burke and Wills and McDouall Stuart but this expedition places him alongside them in terms of length, difficulty and achievement. Find out why. This unit can lead on to one of the great mysteries of Australian European exploration - the mystery surrounding the disappearance of all members of Leichhardt’s exploration group on the 1848 exploration attempt to reach the Swan River Settlement from Moreton Bay (Brisbane).

This Primary School Assembly is suitable for the whole Primary age range but is specifically aimed at 5-9 age groups. It was written to support the Changes theme from the SEAL Materials but is suitable to fit with other general assembly themes about changes, feelings of being lost and the need to keep safe.

The Hummingbird at the end of the story has become a little wiser IMPORTANT The license for using this assembly in your own class is £3, but if you wish to use this resource for a whole school assembly you will need to purchase the school license.

Shelf Life Pack: Chelsea Physic Garden

Shelf Life Pack: Chelsea Physic Garden

https://www.chelseaphysicgarden.co.uk/teaching-resources Shelf Life The Shelf Life resource pack is a cross curricular resource for teachers of pupils at all ages. Shelf Life is a collection of plants growing in the packaging of foods, drinks, cosmetics and medicines. Examples include a tomato plant growing from a bottle of tomato ketchup, wheat from a bag of bread, an orange plant from a carton of orange juice or a willow sapling from an aspirin bottle. It is a reminder of our reliance upon nature and prompts you to ask the question: How many plants have I used today? 15 years ago, Shelf Life was devised by Chelsea Physic Garden’s Education Department to illustrate the diversity of the plant kingdom and also to make the link between our everyday products and their plant origins. Many of the younger visitors to Chelsea Physic Garden (around 2,500 per year) are very surprised – and often quite disgusted – that their meals may have come from plants. When they see tomatoes in a ketchup bottle, potatoes growing in a crisp packet and mint in a toothpaste tube, the message sinks in. Our Shelf Life Resource Pack includes: • Information about 22 plants in our everyday lives - with plant profiles and tips on how to grow them and create your very own display • Games to try out • Curriculum-linked ideas and activities (e.g. the history of slavery and the evolution of packaging) • An extensive bibliography of links and suggested reading We have split the pack into 5 volumes This resource aims to encourage schools to grow their own Shelf Life and provides information about how to do this. There is background information on some easily-sourced and commonly found plants (growing tips and profiles - including all sorts of facts - botany, history, geography, food and nutrition and links to art, music and literature) in Volumes1, 2 and 3. In Volume 4 there are suggestions of classroom based activities to link Shelf Life with the curriculum at every key stage. In Volume 5 are suggestions of classroom based games to link Shelf Life with the curriculum at every key stage. • Volume 1: Aloe to Citrus (PDF/9.5MB) • Volume 2: Cotton to Peanut (PDF/7.6MB) • Volume 3: Pineapple to Wheat (PDF/8.8MB) • Volume 4: Activities section (PDF/7MB) • Volume 5: Games section (PDF/5MB) We welcome your feedback on these.
