I write all sorts of resources for primary and secondary pupils. Have done supply on the full range for more than 10 years now and always come fully armed with resources for my lessons. I aim particularly at the lower groups who are strugglers. Secondary resources have been created for PRU pupils and they have worked REALLY well. The phonics resources were written for a number of pupils that I tutor after school hours and I have had great results.

HORSES AND WAR HORSES : A CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

This cross curricular theme of 36 pages on Horses and War horses was designed for Keystage 3 pupils in a PRU in Essex. I used it when an HMI inspector observed the unit over a period of time and she commended it highly because of the variety of literacy opportunities and the way that the boys and girls in the unit related to the theme and were fully engaged in the work. Topics covered: GRAMMAR, SPELLING, HISTORY, CREATIVE WRITING, and VOCABULARY BUILDING.

This set of30 A5 'cards' can be used as follows: 1.to improve vocabulary and spelling. The pages could be printed as worksheet for the children to fill in or they could be laminated and cut into A5 size cards for use during literacy lessons. 2. As a worksheet they are useful for homework to improve spelling and vocabulary. 3. I have used them with older (Year 4 – 6 ESL) pupils to build their vocabulary in one to one sessions. They are useful because all the key vocabulary has a matching picture so that the pupils can see what the word means.

EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE  CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

EQUINE STUDIES - A LANGUAGE CROSS CURRICULAR THEME

(0)
I wrote this workbook specifically for a horse-mad group of youngsters in a PRU in Shropshire. They loved it and worked ever so hard through it and were fully engaged in the work little realising that they were doing their hated English all the while! I have also used it in a PRU in Essex and it was really well received by girls of the traveller community. They said that it was work that was helpful for their future! I based the learning objectives on those I found for equine studies at the University of Aberystwyth - somewhat simplified but nevertheless correct. Module objectives: • The module will consider the anatomy of equids, with the emphasis being placed on the horse. • This will involve looking at the different organs and structures, their relative positions and their functions. • comparisons with the anatomy of other herbivores will be made, thereby enhancing the understanding of the anatomy of animals in general. Module Content 1. Terminology used in anatomy 2. Evolution of equids pages 3. Bones, Skeletons and Teeth Pages 4. Joints and Ligaments 5. Muscles 6. Digestive tract 7. Respiratory Tract 8. Urogenital System and Reproduction 9. Nervous system 10. Sense Organs and Common Integument 11. Heart and Circulation
