Register Recaps - Lesson Starter Activities

Register Recaps - Lesson Starter Activities

5 Great lesson starter activities that can be adapted for ANY subject or curriculum. Activities are fun and focus on pupil choice for theory and literacy recap! Download the PowerPoint to use or adapt to suit your subject area. Brightly coloured with a simple layout: Knowledge Wheel: Students have to get from A-B by answering the questions correctly. However, if they want to get the most points, the must take the long route around, answering the more difficult coloured questions. This method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Target Practice: Using 3 darts, students must select 3 questions to answer to try to get the most points. Question difficulty varies based on the number of points each colour is worth. Again, this method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Keyword Scrabble: Students must figure out each of the keywords by answering the clues and matching the letters to the total number of points. This activity is a great way to check student understanding and correct spellings. Connect 4 Analysis: Students must connect 4 in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. At the top of each column there is a product analysis heading. Student can only connect 4 if they correctly analyse the product based on the heading. For example: Analysis the function of the torch, iPhone, fidget spinner and washing machine. Analysing the aesthetics of the watch, consumer of the baby toy, function of the fidget spinner and material of the Xbox pad. The gives students a choice from a range of analysis categories. Vocab Snap: Students have 2 minutes to match the vocabulary word to its definition. Using a mini whiteboard they can write, 5E…1C etc. This is a great way of embedding keywords and literacy easily.

ScratchUp! A cunning combination of Sketchup (3D CAD) and Scratch (Coding)

ScratchUp! A cunning combination of Sketchup (3D CAD) and Scratch (Coding)

This is ScratchUp! A cunning combination of Sketchup (3D CAD) and Scratch (Coding) to bring your pupils’ programming projects to life! The idea for this emerged after teaching my classes Sketchup as a specific CAD tool within the DT curriculum to design lunar buggies, before then proceeding to the build stage. I was so impressed at their grasp of the software and 3D design as a concept, that I wanted to set a new challenge. Similarly, they had progressed extremely well in my computing lessons until they were quite proficient using coding constructs and concepts within Scratch, so what was the next step? I noticed that their sprite and background design within Scratch always fell short of their best, probably as they were so keen to code and get their project working. It was all coloured blobs and stick men; purely functional, but little in the way of inspiring graphical user interfaces! Enter: Sketchup. I decided that they could use their design skills to create high quality sprites, then export them as a 2D graphic to be loaded into Scratch as a costume. And then it hit me.  Why not export a series of rotations of a 3D sprite, load multiple images into a sprite’s costume, then animate it, so it appears as a rotating 3D sprite? The possibilities are endless! Take a look around this resource which includes my presentation from the CAS (Computing at School) National Conference 2018, the list of angles I used for my car direction, my ScratchUp examples, pupil Sketchup and ScratchUp examples and a Sketchup help sheet. Let me know how you get on!!! www.rundontwalk.co.uk

Mortal Engines (Upper KS2, Fiction) - planning ideas for a creative literacy unit

Mortal Engines (Upper KS2, Fiction) - planning ideas for a creative literacy unit

This resource contains ideas for planning a creative literacy unit based on ‘Mortal Engines’, a rip-roaring, steampunk adventure by Philip Reeve *. Suitable for Year 5 and 6. Plan a challenging creative writing project for upper Key Stage 2 that uses discussion, design technology and music to explore the incredible world of motorised cities, pirates, aviatrixes and impending war. Perfect for a post SATs project! Story synopsis London is a city on the move. Many centuries after the Sixty Minute War devastated human civilisations, the great metropolises of the past are now rebuilt… as gigantic cities on wheels! These industrial monsters rove around the barren Hunting Ground gobbling up natural resources and smaller towns and conurbations. It is the time of Municipal Darwinism. But as resources dwindle, London’s mayor hatches a sinister plan to secure London’s future. After Tom Natsworthy, a young city historian, has a chance encounter with Hester, a savage outlander, he finds himself drawn into the plot, battling pirates, mechanical warriors and the struggle for London’s future that will change him forever. Mortal Engines is the first instalment in a rip-roaring steampunk epic, told with irreverent verve and energy that will captivate readers young and old. How to use this resource This resource is structured into five parts. Inspiration - sharing the book with your class. Incubation - exploring the ideas in the book through reading, drama and discussion. Connection - making cross-curricular links with this book. Illumination - bringing the work to life through art and design. Application - getting the children writing creatively. Each part is designed to help you deliver a structured literacy unit that offers children room for creativity, develops opportunities for meaningful learning and is plugged in to different areas of the curriculum. This ‘Have you Tried?’ resource can form the basis for an outstanding, cross-curricular unit of literacy work. For more ideas like this, visit articulateeducation.co.uk *Please note this is not a complete set of lesson plans but there are many ideas in this resource that can form the basis of a unit of work. It has been designed in this way intentionally so you can adapt it to your class and school.
