The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

(3)
A short powerpoint to accompany each lesson in a unit of work for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. There are 18 lessons in total (including two to watch the film), which took me about 4 weeks to complete with my Year 4 class. The objectives in the planning come from the 2014 English curriculum for Year 4, but I think these lessons would be easily adaptable for any KS2 class. At the end of the unit the children will write their own short story. Thanks for looking!

Most of the photos are from the Disney film. None of the illustrations are my own.

Persuasive Writing: Ancient Greeks (Theseus and the Minotaur)

(0)
A task-setting powerpoint to guide the children through writing persuasive letters to Theseus as either the King of Athens or Princess Ariadne. I used this with a mixed 3/4 class and the letters featured were written by some of the more able students. Includes features of a persuasive text and the planning with objectives from the 2014 Year 4 English Curriculum. Thanks for looking!

Tudors: Make Me a Monarch! (Persuasive Writing)

Tudors: Make Me a Monarch! (Persuasive Writing)

(0)
This lesson requires the pupils to fill in an application form to become a Tudor Monarch. The planning and task-setting powerpoint are included, and give examples of interests and skills of the monarchs, as well as a few instruments and sports of the time. I taught this lesson to a mixed 3/4 class during History, but after they had already looked at persuasive writing. This isn't essential, but there are a list of logical connectives for the more able children to use. Thanks for looking!

Charlotte's Web Planning

(5)
This is a 12-lesson unit plan of Charlotte's Web (including two lessons to watch and discuss the film) that I used with a mixed Y3/4 class. The children loved reading this story and we made woollen pom-pom spiders for our display board. The unit ends with the children writing their own friendship rescue story. I think this unit would be most suited to Years 2-4. Thanks for looking! Please have a peak at my other items for sale in my TES shop :) https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/HanMade
Design Technology Research and Design Project: Sandwich Boxes

Design Technology Research and Design Project: Sandwich Boxes

(0)
A four-lesson unit (although lesson 3 where the children create their boxes took two lessons!) to research, design, create and evaluate their sandwich boxes. The final box design itself is as the resource file picture shows, not triangular, but contains photographic steps for the children to follow. I used this lesson unit with a mixed Year 3/4 class (who got very into it), but have made these boxes with Year 5 before as well. This unit does not include actually making the sandwiches, but that could be included also. Thanks for looking!

The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo with a 2014 Curriculum Grammar Focus

(1)
This unit of work covers 15 lessons following the story of The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. The downloads include the full planning with objectives taken from the 2014 curriculum for Year 4, and a task-setting Powerpoint for each week. This resource also includes the glossary, so please do not buy this separately as the slides are included in these files. The Powerpoint complements the book as the teacher reads through the pages, explaining the meaning of unfamiliar phrases as they go. The activities have a SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) focus, including lessons using prepositions, conjunctions and adverbs of time, cause and place. (Some plenaries in the planning make reference to GPS tests which were not created by me and so are not included.) Thanks for looking!

Recount Writing Roman Celt Boudicca Rebellion

(2)
This powerpoint guides the children through writing a recount from the perspective of a Celt warrior. Some additional teaching may be required on the rebellion, although the BBC link is very helpful: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/romans/rebellion/ This resource lists the features of a recount and provides a short example for text-marking opportunities.

Easter Bunny Persuasive Letter Writing Lesson

Easter Bunny Persuasive Letter Writing Lesson

(0)
I did this as one whole lesson but it could be spread out as needed. The file includes a letter from the Easter bunny stating that he is going to retire. Next to it is a writing frame for the children to analyse, looking especially at the purpose of each paragraph. On the next page (I printed them double sided) is a shared plan and letter in response. On the final page is a new letter from the 'Bunny Bandit' who has captured the Easter Bunny and the children must write their persuasive letters independently in response. Thanks for looking!

Design Shop Front (From Blank)

This resource was originally used for a Key Stage 2 design after-school club, but could be used for older children also. There is space to design the shop windows, the signage, a shopping bag and also a sale tag. The pupils created their own shop 'brand' (most related to things they already like, such as sweets, Pokemon, Shopkins and Smiggle) and enjoyed having several attempts at creating the shop from their imaginations.

Non-Chronological Report Writing Dressed for the Weather

Non-Chronological Report Writing Dressed for the Weather

(0)
I used this lesson for a Year 3 class on non-chronological report writing. The children used subheadings for their paragraphs on contrasting weather environments and what would be appropriate to wear in each. This lesson worked really well because they did not need to do any further research before writing, which meant that we could focus on the features of a non-chronological report. Thanks for looking!

Persuasive letter writing: Dear Headteacher, Save our playtimes

(0)
This powerpoint guides the children to write a persuasive letter to the headteacher to save their playtime. The powerpoint starts with a nasty letter to the headteacher trying to argue for shorter breaks. The children must discuss how they will put their side of the argument across for playtimes being essential. Includes features of persuasion and provides a simple structure for writing which can be displayed on the board. The plenary slide includes a sample letter to check for features and suggest improvements. Now also includes planning. I used this with a Year 4 class (some were very concerned that their playtimes might actually be taken away!) Thanks for looking!

Persuasive writing lesson animal adoption

(0)
This worksheet is for the children to create a piece of persuasive writing to adopt an animal. Our topic was related to lions and so the children were encouraged to choose a wild cat after looking at a few animal adoption charity pages. However, any animal could be chosen. The planning is included but the powerpoint gives an example of an animal adoption charity page and explains the worksheet. Thanks for looking!

Sound - Measuring pitch and making instruments

Two worksheets for Year 4 Science lessons on Sound. The first is after children had made their own junk model instruments (mostly tissue box guitars and yoghurt pot rice shakers). The second is for much further along in the unit on pitch and frequency, and what different animals can hear. Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greek Monster Masks and Temples

(4)
In our Art lessons when studying the Ancient Greeks, we made Greek temples using art straws on black paper and Greek masks using paper plates. These were the files I showed the children to inspire their ideas. The masks were based around the mythological creatures. The children loved making both. Thanks for looking!

Classroom Behaviour Targets Template

This is a template I used when I taught a mixed 3/4 class, but I think it would be suitable for any Primary year group. All of our target cards had to be yellow/gold, hence the colour scheme.
