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!

Asia: Physical and Human Geography (People and Places)

This interesting and highly-stimulating lesson enables students to describe and understand the key aspects of physical geography (e.g. climates, vegetation belts, flora, fauna, mountains, and rivers) and human geography (e.g. types of settlement, populations, use of resources, and trade) in the vast and varied continent of Asia. Whilst gaining a wide range of knowledge about the content, students also become familiar with a wide range of vocabulary pertinent to the geography curriculum. The lesson follows a clear, logical, bite-size learning journey, which guides students towards relevant and constructive learning objectives. Over the course of this journey, they become able to: - Identify Asia on a map, and identify the countries and regions within Asia; - Understand key information about the physical and human geography of the content, through a fun, interactive quiz; - Retrieve, share, and describe their understanding of the physical and human geography of specific locations in Asia (Dubai, Yala National Park, Gobi Desert, and Tokyo) through a jigsaw model task; - Complete a case study of the physical and human geography of their own place in Asia, and describe their findings to others; -Peer assess each other's descriptions using the learning objectives. This resource pack includes: - A visually engaging whole-lesson PowerPoint presentation; - Key case-study information sheets on Dubai, the Gobi Desert, Yala National Park and Tokyo; - A blank case study template; - A detailed lesson plan, complete with what the teacher and students should aim to achieve at each stage of the lesson.

This is a full 1 hour KS3 lesson that investigates Hurricanes/Typhoons and Mid-latitude storms with KS3 students. The lesson is part of a unit on Extreme Weather, though it could easily be adapted to other place based examples or a general lesson on weather. Learning Outcome 1 - 'I understand where 2 of the world’s most damaging weather hazards occur and will begin understand why this is.' In the lesson we look at: -Differences between tropical storms and mid-latitude storms. -The distribution of tropical and mid-latitude storms. -Global atmospheric circulation (including a cut out and colour diagram). -Why seasons happen. -An interactive plenary. The lesson is designed to be visually appealing, with 'to the point' content that's easy to pick up and run with at short notice. Ease of use is my aim, so the lesson includes a compact presentation with instructions and guidance in the notes section below each slide, it also includes fully referenced handouts with printing instructions and is of course, proof read.

Year 3 Climate Resources

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.

Guided reading question booklet - Everest - To the Top!

Guided reading question booklet - Everest - To the Top!

A booklet of follow-up questions and activities to support guided reading. These questions are ideal for a group to use independently after reading a chapter or few pages with the teacher. At the beginning of the next session the teacher can talk through the pupils' answers with them. These questions are designed to encourage "close reading" of the text. The types of questions in each booklet include: true or false; who said...; ordering events; replacing missing words; character analysis; dictionary work. The style of question has been designed to keep writing to a minimum so the focus is on reading and should not put off those pupils who find writing a challenge. I use the carousel model for guided reading (one lesson with teacher, one/two lessons doing the follow-up booklet, plus two days of other independent reading tasks). Each guided reading book and accompanying follow-up booklet will provide enough material for about a half term. I just choose a different book and booklet for each of my groups. I try to choose books which fit our class topics so I have made resources linked to books about space, Romans, Greeks, mountains and Victorians as well as some classic fiction books. The books were made for KS2 and the difficulty of the questions is related to the complexity of the text, so if your pupils can read the text independently, you should find that the questions are pitched at a suitable level. I am making new booklets all the time so if you have found this resource useful and would like one to suit a particular book, let me know. You can view the style of questions by downloading these free resources: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/guided-reading-question-booklet-greeks-alexander-the-great-andrew-longley-11475248 https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/guided-reading-question-booklet-romans-step-into-the-world-of-ancient-rome-11475100 Book cover images are included for the purpose of matching the booklet to the correct book as many books have the same or similar titles.
