Transport Bundle

Transport Bundle

This is a set of presentations about different forms of transport. The presentations would be a great way of getting a class to use a wider range of descriptive terms, especially when it comes to describing colours, the locations and the number of wheels they can count. This a good way to introduce the topic of cars and transport. I have also included two 'Talk a lot' teaching units about transport and cars. Finally, I also included the car free day presentation, to see how many different forms of transport the children can identify. Ask your students to describe what are the pros and cons of using each type of transport.

Geography, R.E. and Research . The Sunflower Project

Geography, R.E. and Research . The Sunflower Project

Suitable Ages 6-8When trimmed and pasted into an A4 book, these worksheets provide an effective topic end of year display. Preparation is minimal. The research section even has its own booklet with original ideas and reasons to do the research. The RE section covers why we celebrate the harvest of the sunflowers, whilst the geography section looks at Europe and the continents with a view to garnering the children's knowledge of holidays etc to discover where sunflowers are grown.

The sunflower project. Child centred worksheets . Section 4   Harvest and nutrition

The sunflower project. Child centred worksheets . Section 4 Harvest and nutrition

Ages 6-8This resource is more effective after the harvest of the Sunflower seeds.The presentation is in A4 size, so the worksheets can be printed directly from the PowerPoint. I have included a free song from the musical “The Sunflowers” which could be a starting point. There are 10 different areas in the Sunflower Project. The one here concentrates on the celebration harvest, nutrition, recipes, using drawing and writing and poetry to express these ideas.The sheets can be trimmed easily by the child so that they can be pasted into an A4 booklet. The sunflower Project starts with the sowing of the sunflower seed and follows the observation through until Harvest. Each resource covers a curriculum area. The assumption is that natural science knowledge is absorbed through these various activities.

A cross curricular creative approach to discovering the life cycle of a sunflower

A cross curricular creative approach to discovering the life cycle of a sunflower

Suitable Ages 6 to 8All the resources have been written to engage the child on an imaginative, creative and scientific approach to learning. The finished work can be trimmed along the guidelines and be pasted in an A4 booklet with the minimum of fuss. The Power Points are in A4 size and can be printed out for the worksheets.To get the best from the resources, it is hoped that it would all start with the planting of a sunflower. This is echoed in the little musical which follows a class as it sows the seed. (Words etc. are already on a PowerPoint and no specialist knowledge is necessary) The observation section is for each season. RE and data is for Autumn. Literacy for Spring. The rest of the sheets can be done in any order.

Family, Family Life & Family Values - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Relationships Social SMSC

Family, Family Life & Family Values - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Relationships Social SMSC

The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'Family, Family Life & Family Values'. It is one of a series of Philosophy Boxes sessions designed, by request, for KS1-2 PSHE leaders (though it is also useful for KS3). You can save money by downloading the entire course of 20 sessions: which would constitute a significant part to your school's KS1/2 PSHE provision.The download comprises a P4C lesson/session that can be used multiple times with the same group.The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues.The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]
