Sequencing/Storyboard for 'The Piano' Literacy link, story mountain.

(0)
This resource uses screen shots from The Piano by Aidan Gibbons (Literacy Shed for free). It is designed to support children in analysing and/or retelling what is happening during each scene in the video. A fantastic video and produces amazing writing at the end of the unit. The children really develop a sense of empathy as the video is unpicked. This resource can be used in a number of ways to discuss characters feelings at each stage, what happens to the music, what the characters are thinking, why those particular memories stand out etc.

Word bank for 'The Great Fire of London'.

(1)
A word bank with pictures and meanings. Split into two sections, one to describe the fire and one to describe the feelings of people affected. Some words have brackets to give a simple meaning. A great little resource to encourage the use of high level vocabulary all through this unit. We used it when writing a newspaper report and a diary entry from the time.
Story board for the Prince of Egypt film.

Story board for the Prince of Egypt film.

(0)
As a class we watched the Prince of Egypt (available on Netflix) as part of our Egyptian/R.E. lessons. We then discussed the power of prayer (link to R.E.). The children examined each scene in the storyboard and wrote a short prayer underneath that the character may say at that time. Alternatively, the pictures could be used to sequence the events in the story. Image 1: Mother putting Moses in the river to save his life. Image 2: Moses seeing the treatment of the slaves. Image 3: Moses begging his brother to let the slaves go. Image 4: Family preparing a house with lambs blood over the door. Image 5: Moses just about to part the sea. Image 6: Moses looking forward to the future at the end of the movie.

The Highwayman Storyboard and Word bank

A fantastic resource to go alongside the youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryu1JZiSbHo). I have included screenshots from the video to retell the story as well as a word bank including characters, quotes from the poem, setting descriptions and descriptive phrases. A fantastic lesson to introduce and clarify the story of The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes.

Cat In The Hat Comprehension

(0)
This is an extract from the cat in the hat with 7 comprehension questions including literal retrieval, inference, multiple choice and reasoning. I am using this for a lower ability intervention group, however it would suit any KS1 group or lower ability KS2 group. I have included a title and image too.

Real life maths involving money (differentiated).

I have created a bank of 15 different items that can be purchased from different supermarkets. Underneath is a price which is differentiated three ways (red is lower ability, yellow is middle ability and green is higher ability). These can be easily edited to suit the needs of your children. They can be used for addition, subtraction, worded problems and open ended real world challenges.

SPAG Murder Mystery!

SPAG Murder Mystery!

(0)
This is a great resource I have used with my Year 5 group, but would work well as SAT’s revision or as individual teaching elements in LKS2 or as a recap of skills in KS3. The Murder Mystery consists of five challenges based on five different SPAG areas. The children must follow the instructions on each challenge to find a clue. Each clue helps to eliminate people from the suspect list. A notebook file is included with examples of each style of challenge in order to check understanding before the children begin each task. The task begins with a story about a murder in a sleepy village and asks the children to help solve the case. Included in this set of resources is: Instructions for the teacher. A story introducing the event. The suspect list. Five clues** (with all of the answers). ** A self-assessment tool to use at the end of the unit of work. A bright, colourful Notebook file which guides through each challenge and includes examples. A lesson plan. SPAG skills covered by this resource include: Clue 1: Full stops and Capital Letters. Clue 2: Nouns, Adjectives and Verbs. Clue 2: Commas Clue 4: Subordinating and Co-ordinating conjunctions. Clue 5: Speech Punctuation. This works brilliantly in mixed ability groups or by individual groups of pupils. Higher ability pupils relish the challenge of investigating for themselves whereas some lower ability or SEN children will need support. It can be used across one (or a series of) lessons or as a weekly starter/plenary/SPAG task which can extend the ‘whodunit’ tension across an entire half term.
Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

Times Table (multiplication) games. A complete set!

(0)
This is a fantastic set of resources for practicing times tables. They are great for quick activities at the start of lessons or in quick maths slots. The children will role two dice and add the digits together. They will then multiply this by a given times table and place a O or X on the corresponding square. The aim of the game is to get 4 in a row. Children are able to block each other if they happen to role the number required. Game can be played in twos, however alternative versions are possible such as three in a row with three or four children using a different colour pen each. An excellent, fun way to revise times tables!

How to identify a SPAM email (whiteboard lesson plus worksheet).

(0)
This is a Notebook document explaining how to spot SPAM emails. It includes multiple examples to show on the board. Children can talk in talk partners and discuss how you know these emails are spam. Children then complete an activity in pairs which gives them four emails and asks them to note down anything they can spot which would tell you it is a fake email. Everything you need for a computing lesson on SPAM.
Fairtrade chocolate bar lesson including production chain.

Fairtrade chocolate bar lesson including production chain.

(0)
This lesson examines the amount of money everyone in the production chain receives for the sale of a £1 bar of chocolate. The children view the IWB and look at the different roles involved in production such as farmers, cocoa buyers etc. The children then have a blank chocolate bar. They will cut this bar to represent how much they believe each person SHOULD get after listening to their roles in the production chain. You will then reveal how much they actually earn. This creates an excellent shock factor for the children as they usually believe the farmers should get a high amount only to find out it is virtually nothing. Children then have another blank chocolate bar and this time cut them up to show what they actually get. Compare the two and discuss this is why we have Fairtrade. A fantastic lesson!
