This resource can be found at a lower price here: https://lessonplanned.co.uk/downloads/model-boat-sink-float-science-lesson/ I have to be honest, this is my favourite lesson in my shop. I have taught it numerous times and it has always been fun for pupils and staff! This lesson allows pupils to help the Captain get as much treasure as possible to the ship by designing a boat which will hold lots of gold (or marbles to you and I). Once you've explained the task, pupils draw designs for a new, weight bearing boat and explain how they're going to test the boat to show the Captain (the teacher) how good their design is. After that, they build their model out of plasticine, test their boats in water and record the results. The winning team always gets treasure in the form of golden chocolate coins!

It's Christmas week, you have ten last minute play rehearsals scheduled, a church visit and the class are so excited about Christmas that you're thinking your job is closer to that of a cat herder than a teacher right now. Take a break from planning and take a look at these two lessons for Literacy in Christmas week (let's face it, you're not going to teach five Literacy lessons this week). These lessons were used to reinforce the use of relative clauses by getting them to write a relative clause poem. The class produced many outstanding poems using this method and remarkably got really excited about our Christmas-based Literacy lessons with a hidden SPaG focus!
