Saraswati Wordsearch Hindu Goddess of Knowledge Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Saraswati Wordsearch Hindu Goddess of Knowledge Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Saraswati, Hindu Goddess of Knowledge'. 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!

Year 3 - RE week planning (10 sessions) Linked to holy books.

Hi there, I'm RE coordinator and a Year 3 class teacher. I've previously uploaded my long term/whole school RE coverage break down and objectives for each year group. This is our planning for RE week/Autumn -2 comprehension sessions on festivals (as part of our shared reading in the morning) -5 English lessons (on holy books) -2 learning challenge sessions (making mosaics) -1 longer food tasting session (in our Science weekly slot) This was not created for TES and are the actual plans we used but hopefully it still makes sense to outside eyes - useful for ideas and as a starting point. Hope it helps!
