Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

Rivers and the Water Cycle 'WOW'/'Launch'/Topic Introduction day Y3/4 - ENTIRE DAY'S RESOURCING!

This is a topic introduction day (‘wow’ day/‘launch’ day) for a Y3 or 4 class about to start a topic on rivers and the water cycle. The morning involves lots of new learning - including an introduction to the key content of the topic. There are two practical experiments (obviously you will need to source the items for these beforehand) - one a simple evaporation/condensation demonstration and the other is the well-known ‘shaving foam cloud’ experiment! The afternoon is more art/music based, featuring a look at the inspiration French impressionists took from rivers/water and the inspiration many classical composers took from this topic. Finally, if you have a copy of Wind in the Willows to hand, this is an ideal topic-themed way to round the day off. Alternatively, look up the 1983 animated version on YouTube!

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

ANIMAL ODDITIES PART 2 -THREE ANIMALS OF THE RED SAND DUNES OF NAMIBIA - SW AFRICA

Each of these animals adapt to the hot Namibian Desert in ways that are a little odd. See how the lizard copes when it moves across the very hot sand. Find out how the black dune beetle collects and then drinks the benefits of the Atlantic fog. Find the large white spider and understand why it becomes annoyed and how it operates a strange tactic to avoid predators - and annoying guides. This unit can stand on its own or it can be a part of this 3 -part series. If you are investigating deserts, animal adaptations, locational studies (Africa) or widening world locational knowledge this unit will assist. Go into the large red sand hills. Find these animals, but be careful where you place your feet. This material has appeal at Primary levels and as a support for units on hot deserts at Secondary levels. The attachments will help to test the student level of understanding.

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

FRANCINE THE BURROWING FROG OF THE HOT DESERT - ANIMAL ODDITY PART 1

Students are usually interested in the unusual, the different or the odd. Here's an example of 3 -probably 4 - animals of the desert who in terms of their basic biology don't seem to be suited to the hot desert environment. This first unit about a burrowing frog shows how this variety of frog - a water-loving animal can sustain itself in basically a water-deficient environment. This can be used as a standalone unit in Primary or lower Secondary classes. For some Primary students the vocabulary and concepts may be a little difficult. If that's the case you can just screen the material and discuss Francine's story. At a more detailed level this unit is about adaptation and species sustainability. You may wish to include it in your destination studies; arid lands studies or location studies or you may just be looking for something ready made for your students. The debate at the end is designed to check student level of understanding. The attachments are included so that you can provide copies - either in black and white or colour. Find out how Francine copes in two environments - the underground micro-environment and the above ground macro-environment. This is part 1 of the series on animal oddities.

Learning Outcome 1 – ‘I understand the climate of Egypt and can confidently read a climate chart.' This lesson covers the following themes: - Characteristics of rainfall - Characteristics of temperature - Reading climate charts - Plotting a climate chart - Homework on global climate locations Ease of use is the aim, so the lesson includes a compact presentation with full instructions and guidance in the notes section below each slide, it also includes labelled, organised handouts and homework with printing instructions and is of course, proof read.

Year 3 Climate Resources

Year 3 Climate Resources

Whilst teaching Year 3 through a topical approach to learning, I created a 'climate' style class-room, with a Travel Agents, maps, globes and animals to match each climate. All lessons for half a term were linked as much as possible to this topic. Included in this package of resources are: Maths place value work, posters linked to holiday prices in the different climates, a great animal story-telling text to learn with actions in a 'Pie Corbett' style and a non-chronological report climate text.

Amazing Places - SOW - All Resources

Amazing Places - SOW - All Resources

9 lessons and one assessment lesson (could then also do a FIT to make it 11 lessons in total) All lessons focus on an 'Amazing Place' but have an undertone of either hazards (first 2 lessons) or tourism and conservation (last 6 lessons). They all aim in inspire and help pupils to wonder about the world around them using tourist attractions. The lessons have a map in so pupils familise themselves with maps and the first lesson focuses on atlas work. I have attached my original plan which sounds you the order of the lessons. There is also an oppertunity to expand the scheme of work into other tourist destinations such as the great wall of China. Shown on the unit of work. If you live close by to Stonehenge it could also be a great opportunity for a field visit, the Stonehenge website also has a virtual tour. Any questions please message me. 1. Introduction 2. Yellow Stone 3. Himalayas 4. Stonehenge 5. Pyramids of Giza 6. Parthenon - Greece 7. Petra - Jordan 8. Easter Island - Mystery Lesson 9. Machu Picchu 10. Stonehenge Assessment

Weather around the World Assembly or Class Play

Weather around the World Assembly or Class Play

Weather around the World Assembly or Class Play This script is suitable for any year group in Key Stage II i.e. years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The text and concepts are generally simple with examples of Polar, Tropical and Temperate climate zones. Duration Around 15 minutes not including any of the music suggestions. Cast of 30 – easily adapted up or down This class play 'defines' weather (and climate) and gives some examples from around the world (the focus being on the United Kingdom); plus an attempt at explaining why we are all so obsessed with the subject - could it have anything to do with our expectations of English 'summers'?! Latest addition to Sue Russell’s Geography scripts: A Class Play On Natural Disasters – available here and on www.plays-r-ussell.com (complete collection) Music 1 Weather with You – Crowded House (Class files in, taking seats along two rows of 15 seats, facing the audience) (Narrator stands, takes jacket off and steps forward to address audience) Narrator: Good morning and welcome to our assembly on Music 2 Sound of Thunder, Lightning and Rain – musical instruments (Narrator holds his hands over his head to ward off deluge of rain; then rushes back to his chair and grabs an umbrella, scowling heavily) (Enter ‘Gene Kelly’, singing and dancing) Music 3 Singin in the Rain – Gene Kelly (Narrator holds up hand for music to stop) Narrator: Hey! Wait a minute! What are you looking so cheerful about? Can’t you see it’s raining? Gene Kelly: Well, that’s no reason to be miserable. What did you expect? We are in England, you know? (Exit Gene Kelly) Narrator: (Irritably) Yes, and it also happens to be summer! (Enter Weather forecaster, looking around) Weather Forecaster: Er, um. You wouldn’t happen to be doing a school assembly on The Weather, would you? Narrator: (Angrily) I most certainly would! Oh, don’t tell me you’re the weather man we were expecting? Weather Forecaster: Weather Forecaster, that’s correct. I’m most dreadfully sorry I’m late. I see you’ve started without me! Narrator: As has the weather! I thought you said it was going to be sunny today? Weather Forecaster: Ah! Well that does depend what part of the country you are in; and of course what time of the day it is. Things change all the time in the world of weather! Narrator: Including your predictions! Weather Forecaster: Well, it is very difficult to get it right all the time! Narrator: (Testily) You can say that again! I mean, what am I supposed to wear? Weather Forecaster: Well. For this time of year, I’d suggest light clothing, plus a woolly jumper, plus a raincoat!
