Epiphany Assembly - January 2018 - Key Stages 3, 4 and 5

Epiphany Assembly - January 2018 This assembly is suitable for pupils in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. You may have heard of the term, twelfth night. It’s traditionally a time when families across Britain take down Christmas trees and other decorations for another year; an end to the Christmas season. But have you heard of Epiphany? Up until the 19th Century, January 6th was as big a celebration as Christmas Day and today, it’s a public holiday in many countries. This age-appropriate, thought-provoking assembly explains the true meaning of an often forgotten festival. As the frenzied hustle and bustle of Christmas is winding down and a new year emerges, it is a good time to take stock and consider our own personal journeys. This pack will save you hours of prep time. It comprises of a 25-slide power-point presentation with detailed notes, an Epiphany carol music accompaniment and an Epiphany prayer. The presentation can be used in a number of ways; • for a school assembly • as a loop on the school’s visual display system • as part of a lesson.

A Thanksgiving Inquiry Based Math Project Measure, Fractions & Data

A Thanksgiving Inquiry Based Math Project Measure, Fractions & Data

Inquiry based math offers collaborative learning and hands on inquiry requiring the children to solve problems, think critically and apply their knowledge of measure and scale, area, fractions, ratio tables and word problems with the four operations as they explore the journey made by the Pilgrims on board the Mayflower ship. Text is included with data that the children will have to identify in order to solve the problems. They will plan the journey across the Atlantic with measure and scale, they will be required to calculate the amount of food and water rations. Research will be necessary as the children have to know parts of the ship, countries , continents and oceans. Once the Pilgrims reach America, the students will design the village and plan the amount of food necessary to cater for the first Thanksgiving Feast. It culminates in a class presentation of the facts found and reasoning as to their plan and design of their team’s route , their designed village and their ideas for the feast. Comparing and contrasting each group’s work, helps with critical thinking too and communication skills. Wholly differentiated, ( Task B cards are less challenging) you can use it as a summative assessment tool of the skills and standards included. It can be created as a booklet or in a binder., with a front cover included, being used as a goal setting pre assessment for the children. Mix and match the pages to suit your students’ needs. I prefer to have the children work on the pages individually before they compare their designs and work together as a small group to collaboratively create the map, their group plan of the village and planning the Thanksgiving Feast. This inquiry based math packet is easy to print and go, perfect for Thanksgiving or all year round. I designed it for my IB PYP 5th grade class. It can be used 4th – 6th grade too. You will find the following skills and standards ideally suited for the IB PYP Phase 4 and CCSS Math for 4th and 5th grade: •Number sense and base ten operations •Fractions: adding, subtracting and simplifying •Measure: using measuring tools , area and scale •Geometry: identifying polygons and angles •Data analysis Make math fun, engaging an authentic! You can find many more inquiry based learning tools in my store and on my blog. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com
