Pompeii art topic - KS2

Pompeii art topic - KS2

This resource contains a series of six lessons. I have attached planning, slides and resources to enable children to develop painting and pastel skills, whilst also understanding the sketching techniques of perspective and using a vanishing point. The final product is for each child to sketch a section of a Pompeii scene, add colour using pastels or paints and then for them all to be put together into one large image. I taught this topic to Y5 as part of our geography topic ‘Violent Volcanoes’.

The Geography of India - Full lesson with worksheets

This is part of a series of lessons I made but one that stands well alone as either a full unit on India, a cover lesson or a dip-n-dive activity. Originally made for SEN students, it is quite straightforward with differentiated sheets and, I’ve found, easily adaptable to most levels. The LO is Level 3 skills, but again easily stretched for 4-5 if needed (and by using harder version of Geographical Features sheet. Activities include: A facts cloze task Locating country/capital Geographical features (differentiated) - chance to use Atlas/Google Maps Word Search Thank you for looking and I hope it works for you :)
