David Hockney art lesson

(0)
Very easy art lesson that will require no planning! I did this lesson with my year 6 class in 1 afternoon. It gives a brief history of David, his interests and inspirations. The lesson is a very easy to follow step-by-step break down of how to paint a David Hockney landscape. The lesson encourages the children to experiment with colour and perspective. My class produced some really nice pieces by the end -one of which I have used as the example on the slide.

This is a creative writing unit of PowerPoint resources that I completed with my year 6 class based on the book by Nicola Davies. It is roughly 20 lessons but this could be condensed or extended.

The Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality writing sequence

(2)
This is a unit of 15 lesson on PowerPoint slides, which can be condensed or extended depending on the confidence of the class, that is based on the amazing book ‘Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality’ by David Roberts. My year 6 class absolutely loved learning about the Suffragettes -especially as extreme activism has been in the news so much recently! You will need to buy a copy of the book. The unit consists of two ‘big writes’. A formal letter to a Prime Minister and a short story/recount about the day that the Suffragettes interrupted a parliamentary meeting. The lessons that lead up to the ‘big writes’ all teach the class the necessary grammatical elements and writing features that they can include in their writing. Each lesson has a grammar starter and grammar embedded into it for SATs revision. Many of the lessons have differentiation for your lower attaining writers and suggestions for how to challenge your more confident writers. I have included reading comprehensions which can be completed in your Reading lessons or for homework if you don’t have time to get through all the reading in class. This unit can be continued after with a biography about Emmeline Pankhurst or Millicent Fawcett.

PERFECT FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH or for the end of year 6 (summer term) before they start secondary school.

3 mark questions reading SATs revision 5 lessons

(0)
These are 4 lessons that I did with my year 6 class using chapter 1,2 and 3 of The Secret Garden; this book has just the right amount of complex vocabulary to prepare your class for a potentially challenging text in the SATs. My class were finding answering the 3 mark questions particularly challenging. The first lesson involves reading chapter (you don’t have to finish it) and discussing Mary Lennox’s chilhood. We looked at the technique for answering 3 mark questions using Point, Evidence and Explain to answer a 3 mark question about her childhood. In the second lesson, we finished chapter 1 and read some of 2. We looked at answering the tricky ‘Yes’ ‘No’ ‘Maybe’ questions in the SATs where the children must properly explain and give their opinions to back up their choice. The third lesson is also based on chapter 2 and involves less teacher input and more questions involving skills they have learnt. It has a separate group of retrieval questions for your lower readers. The final lesson is on ‘impressions’ that certain words from chapter 3 can give the reader . Lesson 4 and 5 involve explanation to justify inferences and another ‘yes’ ‘no’ ‘maybe’ questions about Archibald Craven’s garden.

Pablo Picasso art lesson

(0)
This is a very easy lesson to do last minute! This is a lesson that I have done with a year 6 and year 2 class. It took two afternoons (about 4.5 hours) with the year 6 class. It took us 3 afternoons with the year 2 class because they were slower at cutting out. The lesson has slides that teach the class about Pablo Picasso, what abstract art and Cubism are. It then goes into a very clear step-by-step of how to make the Pablo Picasso cubist portrait. This lesson is totally adaptable and could be done with collage, paint, found objects and colouring pencils. Please read the PowerPoint notes.
