Ladybird Counting Tins Numbers 0-5 (early numeracy resource)

Ladybird Counting Tins Numbers 0-5 (early numeracy resource)

(0)
I created these tins for use in my former nursery where they were enjoyed by children aged 2.5 years to school age. On one side are the ladybirds with 0 - 5 spots and on the reverse the number is written. The tins were left on one of the radiators and the children accessed them when they chose. Sometimes I would find some very curious things in the counting boxes but more often than not the quantity would match the number of spots on the ladybird.

Presenting Differentiated Lesson Tasks

Presenting Differentiated Lesson Tasks

(1)
A whole school PowerPoint slide to present differentiated lesson tasks. This differentiated task sheet enables students to take ownership for their own learning. The resource has been created using PowerPoint, this means that text boxes can be inserted onto the challenge levels to describe the tasks. I suggest two or three choices of task per challenge level. The challenge levels are indicated by spiciness, the spicier the task, the more challenging it is. Keywords: whole school, lesson, task sheet, worksheet, class template, chili, differentiated
The Twelve Days of Science (Festive Homework)

The Twelve Days of Science (Festive Homework)

(0)
Encourage independent learning with this 'Twelve Days of Christmas' template. Simply add text to the (bacteria/virus) baubles and ask your students to choose what they want to do. How you deliver this is entirely up to you. For example you could ask them to do a minimum of two home works. In order to position the text boxes over the baubles I have just used the number '1'. This means that they can be easily edited and personalised by you. #festive; #Christmas; #independent learning #homework

Keywords for the Topic Solutions

(0)
Keystage 3 Resource A card sort where pupils are asked to match keywords with their definitions. Each central square has four keywords printed on each side. The definitions are on triangles which match up to the appropriate keyword. There are two sets of keywords, one in red and one in blue. They are also single or double bordered which means that the sets can still be identified when printed in greyscale. The card sort has been designed so that minimum cutting is required! Keywords: Solution, soluble, insoluble, saturated, dissolve, solubility, solvent, solute
Organic Chemistry Functional Groups Guess Who?

Organic Chemistry Functional Groups Guess Who?

(1)
A Guess Who game designed for pupils revising Organic Chemistry functional groups. Inspired by the childhood game 'Guess Who?' and played in a similar way. Print out pages two copies of page 1 and print on the reverse page 2 so that when folded in half (as in the picture) the title page obscures the view of the functional groups. Print out two copies of page 3 and cut out the rectangles. Players face each other. Each player chooses a functional group and keeps it a secret. Players take it in turns to guess the identity of the other player's chosen group using clues associated with the different groups. Players use the white rectangles to cover the functional groups eliminated from the game. First player to guess the other player's functional group wins! Keywords: organic chemistry, functional groups, alkanes, alkenes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, halogenalkanes, game. Guess Who?

Storyboard: What happens when bacteria enter your body?

(0)
Pupils are asked to complete a storyboard to illustrate what happens when a bacteria enters their body. The process starts from the moment 'Toby' gets scratched by his cat. His blood begins to clot then the immune system uses phagocytes and lymphocytes to target the bacteria. Key words: Y shaped molecules, antibodies, phagocyte, phagocytosis, lymphocyte, agglutination, immune system, bacteria, storyboard
Create a Simple Digital Microscope

Create a Simple Digital Microscope

(0)
Biologists use microscopes to see things that they can't see clearly with the naked eye. Microscopes are a fairly expensive piece of equipment and generally not very portable. In this practical you will convert smart phone/tablet to create a simple, portable digital microscope using cheap, easily accessible components. Then use it to explore and make observations about the microscopic details of everyday things.

Biology Catchphrase Game

Biology Catchphrase Game

(0)
This is a ten minute game which I created as a revision quiz for A-Level students revising semi-conservative DNA replication, although the board can be used for any biology topic, you just need to set the questions! You can either access the catchphrase board online at: http://www.grefintec.co.uk/catchphraseforbiology/story.html (copy and paste url to address bar) Or you can now download it for offline use from http://www.grefintec.co.uk/downloadslides.html (instruction on the site) Ask the first question to the class. The pupil who gets the question right, gets to choose a square to remove. This continues until either the questions are completed or the catchphrase is guessed. The winner is the person who can guess the biological catchphrase from the picture Just in case you can't work it out - the catchphrase is 'Survival of the fittest' Tip: Ask a pupil to be the game facilitator - enabling you to present the quiz. Enjoy!! Keywords: catchphrase, class game, biology, quick quiz, quiz, genetics, semi-conservative, DNA, DNA replication

Mini Plenary Cards (Blue Coloured Back)

(0)
Mini plenaries are a type of formative assessment and are a great way to review progress of learning during a lesson. It also allows pupils opportunities for self reflection. "Teachers have also begun to be more flexible in introducing effective ‘mini plenaries’ at critical points in a lesson to review progress, clarify misunderstandings and move the work forward (OFSTED Dec. 2003)". Just ask a pupil to select a card and in so doing will feel like they are taking responsibility for their own learning. Just print out 9 copies of page 1 of the PDF and return to the printer for double sided printing and then print out pages 2-10. It is best to print out the cards on thick paper/thin card. I have laminated my set for durability. There are five sets available from my TES shop, the only difference is the back design, the actually mini plenary suggestions are the same. This is the blue backed design. Keywords: formative assessment, mini plenaries, plenary, assessment.

How do we hear the voices of children?

How do we hear the voices of children?

Listening to children is a skill which requires much more than the use of our ears. We can observe their actions and pay attention to their behaviour. This animation was developed for Anne Emerson-Smith Play Training Ltd and shares the key strategies for listening to children. Excellent for training early years and KS1 teachers, teaching assistants and early years educators.
Memory/Snap Game Using Shape and Colour

Memory/Snap Game Using Shape and Colour

(0)
I work as an SEN assistant and am employed to work one-to-one with a three year old child who has global developmental delay. Whilst she has very limited verbal communication, I have discovered that she is great at playing memory and enjoys playing the game. We have been focusing more recently on colour and shape so I have created this memory game to specifically support her learning. The game consists of 32 colour cards. The shapes are square, circle, triangle and star printed in pairs in each of four colours: red, blue, yellow and green. I do not play the game using all 32 cards and currently use either all of one particular shape in all of the colour variations or one of each shape in different colours. She now recognises the four different shapes. But you can adapt the game to play in any way which you see fit. Because the game uses pairs of cards it can be played either as memory or snap. I will shortly be publishing a black and white version of this game to support those children who work better using this colour scheme.
