Science Poems - 8 poems based on popular primary school science topics

Science Poems - 8 poems based on popular primary school science topics

This is a pack of eight poems I have written and used with various science topics. There are general activity suggestions for all of the poems, and specific activities for the individual poems. They can be used with both K.S.1 and K.S.2. The poems are supported by a 37 slide PPT presentation. 1) Colours Say...: a non-rhyming poem, each stanza is about a different colour 2) FIZZLE! CRACKLE!: a rhyming poem about electricity. This would be ideal for a rap 3) FIRE! FIRE!: a non-rhyming two stanza poem which describes fire, using two different viewpoints 4) Machine: a rhyming poem about the sounds and movements of a machine. This would make an excellent performance poem, and could also be used for a dance lesson 5) MAGIC ME!: a simple rhyming poem about the five senses. Ideal for an U.K.S.2 class to prepare as a performance for K.S.1 children 6) How Does an Animal Move?: a non-rhyming poem with each verse looking at the movement of a different animal 7) Sounds Around...: a rhyming poem about the sounds of everyday objects 8) A Mass of Puzzling Questions: a non-rhyming poem about space

3D Hot Air Balloon craft - All About Me, Transition, New Class, SEN, KS1, KS2

3D Hot Air Balloon craft - All About Me, Transition, New Class, SEN, KS1, KS2

4 oval shapes for learners to draw - self portrait, things I like, my family, what I want to do when I grow up. When these are finished, ovals should be cut out and folded in half. Two halves should be stuck to one oval - making a 'cross' type shape when viewed from above. Apologies for my rubbish description! String can then be used to attach the 'basket' to the hot air balloon. A lovely 'getting to know you' craft for the beginning of the school year. These look nice strung in a line across a window.

Back To School Bobbleheads (UK) - a print and go activity for the first days back

Back to School Bobbleheads is a fun activity to get to know your class during the first days back to school. It also provides opportunities to assess how well children can understand and follow verbal instructions - great for children with English as an additional language! The activity is in four parts: designing a head, designing a t-shirt, making a key and using their responses in the key to write about themselves. The answers your children give will create a design that is unique to them. When the activity has been completed, cut out both parts, glue together and string on bunting for an unusual classroom display. Or simply pin to a wall or notice board. The pack contains everything you need - just print and go!
