The Channel Tunnel Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Structures

The Channel Tunnel Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Structures

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘The Channel Tunnel’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Design & Technology Cover Lesson / Mini project

Design & Technology Cover Lesson / Mini project

Ideal for a cover lesson or mini - project. Suitable for all age ranges. Summary: students research, plan and design a range of crazy golf obstacles. Ideal to have some cardboard so that students can make their designs. Great pair/group activity. Bring some gold balls and putters into the lesson for students to try out their designs. I'm sure this could be extended with older groups to create the obstacles from wood / acrylic.

Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Ask your children to design a dream house for a spaceman, a teacher, a pet etc. This can be a weekend homework project or class-based activity. My students loved this activity (and most of the parents did too) and it created lots of descriptive writing opportunities. My class also designed and made one of the rooms in their dream house using 'doll-sized' pieces of furniture (great DT project). Enjoy!
