I made this PowerPoint to teach the Year 3 Light and Shadows unit. It contains enough learning objectives for a full half term and activities for each lesson.

Year 1 spot the difference - early morning work.

(22)
I wanted an activity that my Y1 children could access independently whilst sitting on the carpet before the register first thing in the morning. I put together a selection of 'spot the difference' activities, to encourage quiet teamwork, counting and observation skills, and to allow me time to talk to parents etc if I need to.

Riddles and Tongue-twisters

(10)
I made this powerpoint for those few minutes that appear every now and again during the school day, just before dinner or breaktime or if the children just really need a quick break. I have used it countless times since I started teaching and it has always been popular with the kids, I used to leave them with a riddle 'cliffhanger&' - Sending them out to break without revealing the answer, they&';d spend all breaktime discussing what the answer could possibly be!

Measuring in CM

I used this activity when we were working on measuring in cm within our 'Ourselves' topic. The children worked in pairs and used rulers and tape measures to measure the length of their hands, ears, feet, etc.

I made this powerpoint to help my Year 4's learn about Henry VIII's six wives. It's a little jokey but gets the main points across!

Designing a menu in German.

A quick activity to help children become familiar with the German vocabulary for starter, main course and dessert. It also has space for them to write down their favourite choices of food and drink in German.
The Celery Experiment

The Celery Experiment

(7)
A quick and simple science investigation to show how plants use water. Just cut the end off a piece of celery and pop it in some red or blue food colouring - Eventually, the celery will have a red or blue tint as it absorbs the colouring, particularly on the end. We left it over the weekend to ensure nice bright results, but overnight would probably work too.

I made a PowerPoint and activity sheets to help my Year 3 pupils become familiar with solving number riddles such as 'I choose a mystery number, double it and add 2, I end up with 12. What was my mystery number?'

Fun Christmas maths - Practical problem solving

(10)
Some hands on Christmas problem solving activities I made for the last week in school before the Christmas break. My year threes loved these and worked on them for ages (much longer than I expected) in little groups. It was good to see children who usually struggle in maths shining during this session, as they were great at visual problems and could see things the other children couldn't! I used the little coloured match sticks for the children to arrange and rearrange on their tables.

Simple bunting for each child to fill out with their name, age and a drawing of themselves. To be hung up in the classroom during the first week back!
Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn quiz & freezeframe.

Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn quiz & freezeframe.

(3)
This powerpoint spans history, PHSE and P4C. The children answered all the questions on the slides about Henry's wives (once the slideshow is running, you can circle the right answer on each slide by right clicking -> pointer options -> selecting a pen). Then a selection of children came up to the front of the class, whilst the others 'directed' them as to how the freezeframe should look. Once the freezeframe was perfected, other children came out and held laminated speech bubbles and thought bubbles around the characters. Finally we took a photo.
