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.
Charlotte's Web Planning

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

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!

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!

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.

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!

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!

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

Ancient Greek Mythical Monster Report

(1)
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!
