Persuasive writing and letter writing.

Persuasive writing and letter writing.

(23)
I wanted to enrage my Year 3 children in order to encourage them to do some brilliant persuasive writing, so I mocked up a letter from 'Bruce Boggington&', the chief director of a pickled onion factory, who wrote to the children explaining that he would be building his new factory all over their school field. The children were suitably outraged by the letter and produced some great writing, with lots of good points!

Year 2 - Dividing by 2, 5 and 3

(10)
Differentiated division activities, enough for two sessions. The first activity introduces division, the second activity includes division with remainders. Both intended as adult led activities, but could be practise once children have been taught the skills.

Year 1 spot the difference - early morning work.

(19)
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.

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.
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.

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!

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

(2)
I made a Powerpoint to tell the story of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. The story has a powerful message about friendship and being selfless, as well as being kind to others. I have also uploaded a simple worksheet that my class used as a story map, recreating the story in a comic strip style.

3 x differentiated activity to help children practice their data handling skills. LA children have a poster of aliens to count, sort and record on a bar graph. MA children have a larger selection of toys on a poster to tally then record on a bar graph. HA children have higher numbers of different types of food on a poster to tally then record on a bar graph. There are also questions on the data for the children to answer afterwards.

A letter from a pirate!

My class 'received&' a letter from Captain Pete Pigeon, during our literacy unit on writing letters. We wrote back to him on the &';scrolls' and it made a really nice display, along with the old fashioned map, compass and title.

A look at the different teeth and skulls of herbivores, carnivores and omnivores.

The children wrote information about each picture in the speech bubbles: 'I have flat molars for grinding plants', etc.
