The newspaper template is good for extended writing and to allow students to apply knowledge at the end of a topic or for a homework task. It can be enlarged to A3 and applies to loads of different learning activities.
The linking chart is good for a starter/review task when commencing a totally new topic. Students write what they know in the first oval, then write their new knowledge in the second oval as a review at the end of a lesson or series of lessons. The middle section should encourage students to ask, how they learned.
The postcard is best printed onto coloured card and can be used in any subject, the blank side could be used for a summary with diagrams and pictures of the topic and the address side used for students to use extended writing to apply their descriptions and explanations of the topic learned. Suitable for any year group.
