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

(1)
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. Free to download, use and share. 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 Shop Front (From Blank)

(1)
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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

James and The Giant Peach- Depicting emotions through actions

This resource helps children to understand how the author uses actions to describe how a character is feeling. Using four short quotes from Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, children can draw a face depicting the feeling in the box and then think about how the character might move if they feel this way.
