Comparison between Aslan and Jesus at Easter

(3)
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!

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!

Ancient Greeks Non-Fiction Revision

4 Resources
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!

Symmetry - Differentiated Patterns

(0)
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 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!

Mothers Day Assembly: Mums Making History

This was a class assembly performed by 5 children (When we performed it, 1 and 2 were confident girls, 3 was a girl with speech difficulties and 4 and 5 were boys) about Mums that have made history. The children researched Anna Jarvis, Marie Curie, Emmeline Pankhurst, Jessica Ennis, Tanni Grey-Thompson and JK Rowling for their homework and I wrote this assembly piece to show the rest of the school what we had been learning about.

Silly Storytelling Game for Storytelling Week

(0)
This is the classic storytelling game of fill-in-the-blanks, fold it down and pass it on. I have included some instructions in case it is unfamiliar to you. I think it would be most appropriate for Y1-4, but my Year 4s found it hilarious. Thanks for looking!
