What did the Greeks ever do for us?

This resource is an Active Inspire Flipchart - works with older versions of Active Inspire. This resource can be used as a prompt to start students thinking about the Greeks, and what the Greeks created that we still use today. Children are given the information on 9 different Greek inventions we still use today, and are then asked to prioritise each one. Which one is the most important to them? Why? It can generate a great discussion whilst teaching children a little about the Greeks. I used it as a one off during our Greeks Topic.

Inferring a character's feelings - KS2/3 inference in writing

This lesson plan and presentation will help children understand how to infer a character's feelings rather than just writing the emotion. It involves a fun starter for the teacher - a little bit of acting, which the children love! If you are not a fan of acting you could get away with the text at the beginning of the presentation and the discussion. Children will end up writing their own paragraph inferring what a character is feeling. Differentiated planning.
