I provide a wide range of resources for use in the classroom and around school. My resources build on children's learning and consider the smaller steps children need to take to achieve the learning. My resources have a focus on 'mastery' style questions where possible, to develop children's critical thinking and reasoning skills. As a practicing primary teacher myself, I know how essential it is to have well organised lesson resources with engaging activities that focus on the learning.

Capacity Investigation

An interesting and challenging capacity investigation. Can be solved mathematically by more secure mathematicians or can be solved by using cups, buckets and water for younger or less able children. There are a range of possible answers for example 700ml could be achieved by: 500ml + 500ml = 1000ml 1000ml - 300ml = 700ml 500ml - 300ml = 200ml (repeated 3 times) = 700ml

Y4 Living Things and their Habitats - Lesson 2, Identifying Living Things (Planning, PP, Resources)

(0)
Lesson PowerPoint, planning and activities for identifying living things. The second in a series of lessons to develop children's knowledge about 'Living Things and Their Habitats,' for the 2014 primary curriculum. Links to coverage of the curriculum are explicit in the planning. We are learning to identify and name living things. An interesting mastery starter - 'What am I?' to develop children's critical thinking and reasoning. Recaps prior learning on how living things are grouped. Opportunity for children to work in mixed ability groups to go on a hunt for living things in their school grounds or local environment. Develop's children's scientific explanations of how to identify and name living things (e.g. specific species of trees, butterflies, birds). Some 'mastery' thinking required through the questions posed, for deepening and mastering learning. 'Living Things' hunt work sheets provided for children to identify what they find and record these (focus on trees, shrubs, birds, insects, small mammals). Opportunity for cross-curricular links to ICT for identifying any living things found that are not identified on the sheets. Mastery questions to encourage children to consider what to search for. Also links with e-safety by recapping how to search the internet safely. Choice of 3 differentiated follow up activities (all of which are provided as well as being explained on the PowerPoint). Activities have cross-curricular links to maths (creating a bar graph). Plenary requires mastery level thinking and leads into next lesson by encouraging children to consider why grouping all living things as plants or animals is not specific enough.
