Notebook, hide-the-verbs activity and worksheet included.
My year one class loved this lesson - I hid the bossy verbs around the playground and the children had to find them all and do exactly as Little Miss Bossy instructs! We came back into the classroom and they thought of their own , recording on the worksheet, then came up with bossy verb sentences in talk partners.
This led very nicely onto our work writing instructions about making Pumpkin Soup (eg. Cut up the pumpkin; boil the soup; blend the soup etc).

Learning objective: to design and create a model of a bridge.
In lesson children were encouraged to design a bridge individually, then get into groups with big A2 sheets bring their ideas together into one design for makeable model. They then presented ideas back to the class. Finally they had a go at constructing their bridges out of junk modelling materials and rolled up newspapers. We tested them at the end and rated them on appearance and durability!
Children LOVED lesson and pushed their skills in teamwork, problem solving, design and fair testing.
Two worksheets encouraging children to think about how the great fire of London spread (focusing on materials houses were made from in 1666).

Ideal for year 2 or for strong readers in year 1.

Storyboard to help children demonstrate that they understand what happened in the story of The Last Supper.

Three worksheets to help children to recognise and understand objects Christians use for worship (eg. Bible, instruments). Harder task relies on children being able to write sentences about what the objects are and how Christians use them. Middle task asks children to label objects for worship and write about how Christian use them. The lower ability task is a sorting activity where children choose which objects Christians might use and what they wouldn’t.
