The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

An 18-lesson unit of work (including two lessons to watch the film) on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by CS Lewis. My Year 4 class absolutely loved reading this book and I think these resources could be easily adapted for any KS2 class. Thanks for looking!

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

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

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!

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

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.

Geography Endangered Animals

Geography Endangered Animals

This lesson explains why some animals are endangered, what this means and how to help. The 'Top-Trumps' style cards are for the children to use (with their research from computers and books) to draw and write about endangered animals of their choice. I cut the cards out ahead of the lesson and stuck as many as the children completed in thetime into their books. Thanks for looking!

Design Shop Front (From Blank)

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.

Comparison between Aslan and Jesus at Easter

Comparison between Aslan and Jesus at Easter

After reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, the children highlighted statements they thought were true about the deaths and resurrections of Aslan and Jesus. This led to an excellent discussion about what they knew about the Easter story. Also included is an answer sheet. Thanks for looking!

Newspaper writing frame (for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe)

Newspaper writing frame (for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe)

This is a newspaper writing frame that could be used for any topic but I used it for our work on The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, hence the heading Narnian News. There is space for the child's name, the date and a picture, along with the columns for the children to write their news into. Thanks for looking!

Charlotte's Web Planning

Charlotte's Web Planning

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

Persuasive Writing: Ancient Greeks (Theseus and the Minotaur)

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

We used this lesson to write non-chronological reports about Greek monsters. Children choose which monsters they want to research and must find out five facts about each one. My lowest ability only managed two monsters in the time, whereas the top ability could find out, and draw very detailed sketches of, four monsters. The children drew their creatures on plain A6 paper and then cut around them and stuck them onto their reports. (Some additional teaching will be required on note-taking and then turning those notes back into paragraphs) Thanks for looking!

Problem Solving Maths Day

Problem Solving Maths Day

This activity was used for a Key Stage 2 Problem Solving day. The clues were printed and laminated and hidden all over the school. The children had to find the clues, answer the question (in mixed year group teams) and use their answers to work out the letters (the answer is 'If you can solve this you can have one housepoint each'). Some of the questions are quite difficult to challenge the Year 6s. Thanks for looking!

Children are then given a few minutes to make their own Olympic torches before they write instructions for them. The lesson concludes with text-marking an example. Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greeks Non-Fiction Revision

Ancient Greeks Non-Fiction Revision

These are the resources I used at the end of the year in my Topic lessons to revise non-fiction text types before the tests. Make sure the persuasion text lesson is taught before the recount lesson. If looking for inspiration, for discussion texts I asked the children to write about whether it was better to grow up in Athens or Sparta, but I used a resource by someone else. Thanks for looking!

Instruction Writing to make a Card or Paper Box (DT links)

Instruction Writing to make a Card or Paper Box (DT links)

This lesson requires the children to put photographs in order of the instructions, and then write the instruction that they think goes with the picture together as a class. The children make the box based on the pictures and then write their own instructions based on what they have made. As a plenary, the class can textmark the features from an example given.

Symmetry - Differentiated Patterns

Symmetry - Differentiated Patterns

I used these worksheets in Year 4 and the children moved through them at their own pace during the lesson starting with the first sheet. The third activity is quite difficult (two examples in the picture) so even the most able might need to start with the second sheet first. The last sheet is just blank for the children to fill in for each other in pairs if they've blasted through the other three! Thanks for looking!

Ancient Greeks Recount Writing (Dionysus or Ariadne)

Ancient Greeks Recount Writing (Dionysus or Ariadne)

This lesson can be used in either English or Topic when learning about Ancient Greece or myths. Once children have learned about Theseus and the Minotaur, this lesson guides the children through what happened next using weblinks for Mr Donn. The children write a recount from either the perspective of Dionysus (and the pirates) or Ariadne (being deserted on the island) up to when Dionysus finds Ariadne and asks her to marry him.

Persuasive letter writing: Dear Headteacher, Save our playtimes

Persuasive letter writing: Dear Headteacher, Save our playtimes

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!

Sound - Measuring pitch and making instruments

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!
