A powerpoint showing the process a plants goes through to complete water transportation, as well as a food colour experiment. Investigation: Food colouring water transportation experiment. When food colouring is added to the water in the test tube, the stem will begin to soak up the water and the petals of the flower will change colour. White petals needed and dark food colouring works best. Step by step method, video of experiment as well as appropriate investigation for KS2 pupils.
A lesson PowerPoint discussing the meaning of food chains, a definition of key words of the topic - consumers, producers, decomposers, herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Students at the end of the lesson will be able to create their own food chains and show the different key word for each organism.
A template in order to create a fact file all about the planets in our solar system. Students can complete their own research using the secondary resources e.g. internet, books and magazines etc. They may also wish to add facts they already may know for each planet. There is one fact file template; however, I would suggest using the same template to do all 8 planets. Mars, Venus, Earth, Saturn, Neptune, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus. Remember: Pluto is no longer classed as a planet and is now considered by Scientists to be a dwarf planet. This could be completed as an extension activity - why is Pluto a dwarf planet?
A school council application form, form can be given to the whole school. Students who wish to be on the School Council can fill in an application form explaining why they think they should be chosen to represent their class and school as a member of the School Council.
This resource is great for students of all ages to recognise organs within the human body. Pupils are given an empty diagram of the human body and are required to label the key organs; once the organs have been labelled and students can then colour each part of the human body using the matching key. In order to extend learning students can either use their own knowledge or research why certain organs are important and the functions within the body.
Power point lesson plan including all the learning objectives and outcomes for different ability groups. To recognise the value of a digit using Dienes rods Explain how a number is bigger or smaller by recognising the place value Can be used as a whole group or intervention group. Resources needing Dienes Rods. Slide - What is in the bag? Is a independent activity where students choose a bag, in each bag there will be a different number of tens and units.

Are you a materials detective? Students can either go around the classroom, school or their home and look for objects made from different materials. The materials they are looking for are: wood, plastic, metal and glass. Once students have found an object made from this material they can either write down what they have found or draw a picture - they may wish to do both. Extension - Why do you think these objects are made from these materials? E.g. why would a pan be made of metal and not wood? Once sheet has been completed you may wish to use 4 different colour sticky notes or paper. Students can colour coordinate different objects e.g. all items they can find made from wood, would be colour coordinated with orange.
Learning objectives: Using and applying addition knowledge for TU + TU This board game is a perfect game for a range of students due to the levels of differentiation which can be used: Students use a number line Students use a calculator Students to use a 100 square Students to use column addition methods Great game for primary school or SEN students. Students to be working in partners or in a small group. Can also be used for interventions. Each player takes it in turns to roll the dice and move along the board. When they land on a number the question must be answered; students can answer the questions in a variety of ways according to their personal attainment (see differentiation above)
A planning sheet for a step by step layout for germination of a seed experiment. Students in the class all to be given different conditions, no water, no light, no air, no warmth and all conditions; after a few weeks students to see which type of condition was the best to germinate the seeds.
A very good visual representation for students involving food chains. Student will need to cut and stick the top 3 food chains individually and place these into the correct order; showing which animal or plant gives energy to the next animal or plant. Challenge: Students can create their own food chains using their own consumers and producers. (consumer eats other plants or animals) (producer grows for animals to eat e.g. grass) Extension: Food chains have consumers and producers, can the student name the consumers and consumers within the different food chain.
A great game to begin to learn the name of basic 2D and 3D shapes. Students will need to follow the the game board; they will roll a di and which ever number it lands on this is how many squares they will move. Once they have rolled and moved their counter they will need to name the shape. If you get the name correct you can stay on this square, if you incorrectly name the shape you must go back to the square you can from. Interact game to be played in a small group at school or a family game to play at home - a fun maths game!
Game to be played in a small group - great for learning and understand money for a variety of ages and also a fabulous resource to encourage coin recognition. Game can either be played with plastic coins or real money for a chidlren’s money box or spare change jar. Each player will start with £1. The game involves counting money through giving and receiving. All players must start on the start square; when it is your turn you will roll a di and move the amount of spaces on the game board. You must read what the square says and follow the instruction e.g. you spend 10p at the fair; if you land of this square you would count out 10p through coin recognition and give the money to a player of your choice. The person at the end of the game with the most amount of money will win.
A resource to complete with students and children either after watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or a great English resource to help with imagination.
