Robert Burns Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Author Poet Scottish

Robert Burns Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Author Poet Scottish

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Robert Burns’. 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!

Wolf Brother Simple Chapter Summaries

Wolf Brother Simple Chapter Summaries

I wrote these chapter summaries of Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver to help SEN and EAL children access the story alongside the rest of the class. They were very valuable and have been used with great success. The whole book is covered from start to finish. An example from Chapter 3: Torak saw the wolf and at first, wanted to eat it. Torak realised the wolf was alone. It’s family had died in a flood. The Wolf was howling and crying. Torak realised he understood the wolf saying, “Why won’t you play with me brothers?”, “Why won’t you wake up?” and, “I’m hungry.” Wolf could smell something like wolf in the air. Torak went towards Wolf with a knife, ready to fight it if it attacked him. Wolf showed Torak he was too weak to fight and wasn’t going to attack. Torak hugged Wolf and Wolf wasn’t scared any more.

KS2 KS3 Macbeth Fortune Cookie Project

KS2 KS3 Macbeth Fortune Cookie Project

Based on Macbeth’s coronation banquet and knowledge of plot and character, this is a fantastic mini project that can be done quickly as a lesson and a couple of homeworks or can be expanded to be more cross-curricular. Students invent fortunes based on knowledge of events in the play after the banquet scene and engage in research so that they can make (faux or real) fortune cookies for the characters in ‘Macbeth’. Amazing for creative learning. Works well as end of term work or a project homework or cross-curricular writing.

Reading comprehension: Story Detectives - Embla the Bunny

Reading comprehension: Story Detectives - Embla the Bunny

A simple to use powerpoint presentation for primary aged children, requiring them to develop their skills in reading comprehension, and their understanding of plot, character and setting. The powerpoint can be used for group work, class work or guided reading activities, so is versatile and easy to adapt for individual classes. Basic lesson objectives and success criteria are included, as well as handy hints and notes along the slides. The Story Detectives resource bank uses entirely original stories written by Emma Middlemiss (that’s me) about a bunny, facing new beginnings and changes, with a hint of Nordic mythology and history, as well as other characters to draw out the best of children’s imaginations and interests.
