Habitat Boardgame

(0)
A cool little boardgame which can be used as an introduction to the topic, assessment at the end of topic in KS1 or as a knowledge harvest in KS2. Children pick up a card with an animal or plant on it and they move around the board choosing which habitat or micro habit that animal lives in. The game ends when all the cards are gone. The game targets these KS1 science objectives in the English Curriculum: a)identify that most living things live in habitats to which they are suited and describe how different habitats provide for the basic needs of different kinds of animals and plants, and how they depend on each other. b) identify and name a variety of plants and animals in their habitats, including micro-habitats.

Bug Hotel Power point and Letter Home

(0)
Such a fun lesson! As art of teaching microhabitats my class and I created one large bug hotel in our garden area, it could also be done in any forest area nearby, but the closer the better as you can visit and investigate the bugs and which environment they’re most drawn too. Included is a brief powerpoint encouraging the children with ideas of what it may look like and natural environments for different types of insects. I would send the parental letter out a week or two before so they can help out with the items needed. Enjoy!

Toy Assembly and Resources

Toy Assembly and Resources

(0)
This assembly is based on the unit of work I completed with my class, therefore I’ve included a plan of what I completed throughout my lessons. This was a great cross curricular topic and as you’ll see, I’ve included links to art and DT, literacy and ICT. The assembly included an option between two songs and the words to a poem we performed. There are also a number of templates to create jumping jacks, shadow puppets and zeotropes. The document marked zerotrope template was a great freebie from a childhood museum which has other ‘toy’ related worksheets and activities which I sent as homework. I completed this summer term in a year 2 class, but to be hones at it is all about the work the children complete can really work from year 1 - 6. We had such fun with this topic and assembly, I hope you do too!

This is a fun Vikings assembly from year 2 to 6. It has 2 songs with youtube links and one link to a Viking thunder clap which is very simple and my kids loved learning. It covers Viking weapons, clothing and Gods. I also put some costume suggestions at the back of the script which would definitely cover a couple of art and dt lessons too. There are so many opportunities for fun acting and miming in this script too depending on the ability of your class. Hope you enjoy it!
