Using adjectives to describe a setting Year 1

Using adjectives to describe a setting Year 1

A resource used when teaching a year 1 class about adjectives. Contains a powerpoint with two pictures of an icy setting to describe, a sound clip to be played when the children are thinking about what they may hear in this setting, a thermometer picture to use as a prompt when thinking about how cold it may be there. I used the resource alongside fake snow and fans in boxes. There are senses spinners for lower ability children as a prompt to get them thinking about using the 5 senses to describe the setting. There are also a range of snowflakes. Blank snowflakes for children to write their own adjectives on to share with the class and others with a range of different adjectives on for LA children to decide which ones would be well chosen and which wouldn't. They are then to match the well chosen adjectives to the picture.

Year 1 Tally Charts using Jungle animals and handling data

Year 1 Tally Charts using Jungle animals and handling data

A resource created to teach year 1 children about handling data and creating tally charts. Children were told that we are going on a trip to the jungle and that in their packs there were some animals that needed to be released back into the wild. The first activity was to sort the animals (this was the whole session for my LA children), they then used the animal pictures to complete the tally chart (a discussion happened here to recap what a tally chart is and what to do when we count five of something). Afterwards the children were to answer the questions about their tally chart. As a next step or reasoning question the children were asked to write their own question to ask someone about the tally chart, there was a frame to support children in this.

Magic Box Poem Year 3

Magic Box Poem Year 3

A range of resources created to teach year 3 children how to write a poem like 'The Magic Box' by Kit write. The plan outlines how the resources were used on each day. Children began by looking at the poem and thinking about what they would like to put in their own box. Children used the 'favourite resources' to think about who and what they would like to put in. I produced my own shoe box full of things I would put in my own magic box and shared it with the class beforehand (see picture). The children wrote their ideas on strips of paper and put them in their own magic box in the middle of their table. On the second day we looked at the language used and the way the poem is set out. I showed the children the poem I had created and provided a frame for them to use when writing which their own which built on their work on 2a phrases.

2D shape investigation

A resource used to get children thinking about 2D shapes. I created a 'crime' that had been committed in the classroom by a certain 2D shape. I tipped over chairs and scattered 2D shapes around the room.

These clues got the children thinking about regular and irregular shapes as well as how to work out the perimeter of shape.
