Hello Fellow Teachers, Here is a space-themed, home learning project that will be used whilst the children are off school. This resource spreads across 7 tasks (could be set weekly or daily) which last for an hour-long each. The tasks include: diary writing non-chronological reports persuasive writing letters product design This task would work great for Lower KS2 (Year 3 and Year 4) and it fits in with the national curriculum expectation for science. I upload my tasks as both an editable .docx / Word document, and as a PDF in case the alignment doesn’t work on your computers. Some of my resources use Primary Penmanship font, which can be downloaded for free from the following link: https://www.dafont.com/kg-primary-penmanship.font If you’re looking for other home-learning projects, here are links to the other resources I’ve put together for my KS2 children.

Artist Research Pack: Opinion & Analysis

(0)
Differentiated worksheets for children to present artist research, opinion & analysis along with a page for attempting to recreate and replicate the artist’s style. Sometimes, the way children present their research findings in art isn’t up to scratch with their practical work. This resource gives children the opportunity to show their findings neatly (with sentence starters, word banks and prompts to help guide their writing) and give opinions on the artists’ work. This resource is re-usable as it’s not artist-specific and gender-neutral pronouns are used. The second version of the artist research page is scaffolded for lower-ability writers. Included in this download: 3-page PDF for demonstrating knowledge on artists Word .docx versions of the pages so you can tailor the sheets to your students’ needs Lost in Chalk font for editing your resources in keeping with the current style Hand drawn page borders that can be used on other classroom materials (not for commercial use) Hand-drawn paint tube clip art that can be used on other classroom materials (not for commercial use) I hope this resource saves you time and stress!
