World Cup Russia 2018 activities with differentiated booklet.

World Cup Russia 2018 activities with differentiated booklet.

This resource is ideal for form or a class activity for the entire duration of the World Cup. They will need to have one of the participating teams allocated to them and will be expected to research this team and therefore need access to the internet or the library. The random generator allows each student to pick a nation at random. It is a powerpoint that begins by pressing “S,” and then when you press it again it will stop on a random country. This means that students are given a random country that they can research rather than a country that they may already know about. There is also attached a 50 question quiz about the World Cup both past and present. This is an ideal introduction to get the kids excited about the World Cup. The booklet itself comprises many cross-curricular activities that touch upon art, design, English, history, geography, maths, logic and research. Some of the pages look as though they have been replicated but there are subtle differences to allow differentiation. The way I would use the booklet is to personalise the tasks to each child so that you can give different sheets to individuals so there is no copying but more co-operative learning. At the end of the topic, each child will have their own, individual memento of the work done in class during the World Cup Please feel free to comment. Come on England!

Euro 2016 Differentiated activity booklet, ideal for form time.  All home nations and ready for use.

Euro 2016 Differentiated activity booklet, ideal for form time. All home nations and ready for use.

This is similar to my Rugby World Cup resource but is significantly bigger. I've designed it as an ongoing resource to be returned to every form time for the duration of the Euro tournament. It comes with a powerpoint that has all the participating teams on it. If you play the powerpoint then the images will quickly change. Press "S" and the slideshow will stop on a team. Press "S" again to re-start the slideshow. Using this method, each child can randomly select a team to follow. I did this with my form with a prize if their randomly selected team won the tournament. This team will also feature in their booklet as a research project. The booklet starts with a page about the hosts of the tournament, France. This is a research activity and so access to computers or books will be required. There are two sheets which look identical but this is not the case. One has prompts to assist lower ability students with some French historical characters to research. The next page looks at the history of the tournament and again has a differentiated version for lower ability students. Following on from this is a picture quiz where students have to name the winners of the previous tournaments. Next is a research project where students are asked to design a poster for their previously selected team. There is a differentiated version for lower ability students with a number of prompt questions to help with research. The next three sheets each relate to one of the home nations so that any students who have an allegiance to that nation can still participate. This task is to create a song/rap or chant about their nations success. Again with specific home nations sheets is the next task which is to design their football kit. Next is an art project looking at the work of Robert Delauney, a famous French artist with a particularly bright and vivid style. Students are asked to reproduce his work and this can be extended to adapt a football picture into his style of work and a blank canvas for the truly creative. There follows a focus on four famous players with an attached fact file and a drawing to colour in. Once this is completed there is a blank fact file for students to pick their favourite player and complete accordingly. Finally there is a puzzle page with riddles and a word-search. The answers are on the final sheet. There are a number of ways in which you can run this project: You could compile the workbooks beforehand and hand them out so that they are differentiated to each class members ability. You could hand out each page individually and then compile them at the end. My ideal would be that everyone gets a different sheet so that everyone is doing a different task within the same time frame and then they are compiled at the end. Any feedback, positive or negative, is greatly appreciated.

Revision bundle for GCSE PE. Ready to use, including AQA test on 'Lucy.'

Revision bundle for GCSE PE. Ready to use, including AQA test on 'Lucy.'

Question sheets 1-7 are best printed out on A3. I always kept a few of these in my classroom as extension tasks or homework. They are designed to encourage students to plan an answer before writing. Q1: Other subjects relevance to PE Q2: Qualities of a successful first aider Q3: Funding an athlete Q4: Unsuitable sponsorship Q5: Effects of fatigue Q6: How exercise affects the c/v system Q7: How correct technique prevents injury Quiz, quiz, trade is a starter and plenary activity where every student has a slip of paper with a questions and its answer on it. They go around the room and ask someone their question. Once they have answered it, the correct answer is given. Then they swap roles. Once the second question has been answered, they trade questions and find someone new. This can continue as long as you wish but allows for lots of people to ask and be asked questions. The plenary at the end is simply the teacher asking the questions again. Everyone should be able to provide an answer! I like to have the class all stand up, they can sit down when they've answered a question correctly. The revision loop is a series of answers with an unrelated question on the bottom. Each student gets one of these slips and has to use their answer to answer someone else's question. Next, two Tarsia jigsaw puzzles. Simply cut out and muddle up and then re-arrange. Lots of ambiguity to promote discussion and problem solving. Finally, a 17 question, exam style test on topics directly linked to Lucy. These come from past papers from 2010-12 and so are due to be dusted down for this exam! All q's are 2-8 marks and the test is out of 64. This bundle will save hours of prep. and can be used repeatedly as part of your revision. Any feedback, positive or negative, please let me know.

Round 2 : The Picture Round. 5 pictures of celebrities who were half-decent at football in their day followed by 5 pictures of mapped countries that students have to name.

Round 4 : Say what you see. 10 Dingbats related to players and places to do with the tournament. Round 5 : Whose strip? Students have 10 representations of the football kits of some of the teams playing and they have to work out the correct country. Round 6 : Where was I born? (Sorry, couldn't think of a better title) 10 players who play for a country that they weren't born in. You've got to name the country they were born in. Tie-breaker about Michel Platini (his playing days not his, alleged, mis-deeds in UEFA). After every question the answer is immediately revealed or is written in the accompanying notes so that students interest is maintained. Any feedback, negative or positive is greatly appreciated. Enjoy the Euros!

Ready for immediate use, GCSE PE AQA spec. lesson covering innovation, sponsorship, marketing.

This lesson utilises the Toronto Wolfpack rugby league team as it's source material in it's unique position as the first transatlantic sports team. After first highlighting the fact that all of the teams in the Kingstone Press League 1 are Welsh or English, students are asked to guess the location of the league leaders which is of course, Toronto. Following there is a brief fact file about the Wolfpack and then a think, pair, share task looking at the positives and negatives of having a team based in Canada, play in Britain. Students are then challenged to tackle one of three tasks, looking at either logistics management, grass roots or marketing, all of which are directly related to the Wolfpack. This allows for differentiation as students can pick their challenge or have the teacher select one for them in order to push students. Finally we have question time. All students should attempt EITHER the normal OR the level-up before attempting the killer question. The normal question is aimed at lower ability students, again allowing for differentiation. The killer question is related to another sport entirely in order to encourage students to transfer their knowledge to another area. Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated, positive or developmental.

Fairy Tale creative writing frame. Can be used in part or as a whole. Ready to use in lesson.

Fairy Tale creative writing frame. Can be used in part or as a whole. Ready to use in lesson.

This is a series of four worksheets that guide a student through the creation of a character, description, planning and eventually crafting a fairy tale. I would suggest that this is ideal for KS2-KS3 and for low ability students in KS4. Each sheet has tasks to complete with opportunities provided for peer review and teachers feedback. As stated, this can be used immediately as it is self-explanatory, engaging and fun. Students are encouraged to draw a scene from a fairy tale on the first sheet, so drawing equipment should be available. Other than this, all that is required is a pen and a modicum of creativity. I've attached two versions that are identical with the exception that one is saved on publisher and the other is a pdf. You can use this resource over a series of lessons and as part of a whole unit on fairy tales. It has been suggested that a unit could start with some drama, re-enacting fairy tales, creating new ones and use this as the foundation for the work contained herein. Any feedback, good or bad is gratefully received.
