This shop is slowly being filled with my favourite lesson plans. I love it when I find a resource that gives a complete lesson without the need for any extras or tweaking so that's what I'm aiming to also give when I add a new resource on here.

Wildlife Park Maths Activity Pack

(0)
This pack contains 5 different maths activities based around a wildlife park. Each activity is centered around a different area of mathematics and a different aspect of the park. The pack is designed to give the pupils an insight into the running of a wildlife park and an understanding of the vital role mathematics plays in its operation. The pack is ideal for a series of maths lessons that you want to tie in with a visit to a zoo/conservation park or simply practicing maths skills in a real-life context. The whole pack would take around 3 or 4 hours to complete. Task 1: map scales, compass directions, distance and area (level 3) - based around a map of WIllow Wildlife Park. Task 2: money operations (level 3) - based around the park gift shop. Task 3: designing and costing a new bear enclosure (level 2/3). Task 4: time (level 3/4) - based around a volunteer’s working day at the park. Task 5: pie chart, percentages (level 4/5) - based around the annual report of the park detailing income sources. All question answers included. This pack has been repeatedly used successfully with a whole yr7 year group before a wildlife park visit. It would also be suitable for primary year 6 children. I hope your students enjoy the activities as much as ours have. Feedback warmly welcome.

Plotting Quadratics

(0)
PowerPoint presentation primarily aiming to give students practice plotting quadratic equations. The lesson however also encourages the students to first think how the next equation they are plotting differs from the first and then predict how its shape will differ on the graph. The lesson therefore also introduces graph transformations. Included are screen prints of the resulting graphs the students will plot. The lesson is also duplicated using cubic equations for the more able students.

Conflict Resolution (behaviour management)

Conflict Resolution (behaviour management)

(0)
A wonderful tool to aid dealing with disputes between pupils. I created this resource to solve an ongoing problem between two students who were antagonising each other where there was no clear culprit or victim. The resource consists of a a fill in sheet to give to the students and then a poster to aid talking as you mediate between the students. The students learn: * To express their feelings to each other * Empathise * Problem solve together * Independently resolve conflicts The children also quickly learn, if used each time a problem arises, that they’d rather not miss their break time sat talking issues through and so they begin to avoid creating the problems in the first place. Works great for making the attention craving children who stir up trouble to stop and think!
