Ancient Egypt archaeological artifacts lesson.

Ancient Egypt archaeological artifacts lesson.

This is a fantastic lesson to get practical. The photos should be printed and laminated and then hidden in some manner. Preferably, hidden in sand to become a true archaeological dig, however they could also be hidden around the school or even just distributed throughout the classroom. Children will find an artifact, draw it, guess what it was used for and then use research or Google reverse image search to find what the item actually was. Makes a brilliant practical lesson with many possibilities. Note: All artifact images have been collated from a Google image search in order to make reverse image search accurate. Consequently, the copyright of these images remains with the individual or organisation.

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.

Fantastic two digit by two digit multiplication practical lesson.

Fantastic two digit by two digit multiplication practical lesson.

Practical lesson for multiplication. Children will work in mixed ability pairs to calculate the answers. They must then move around the playground/hall/classroom to locate the answer on a poster and record the letter shown. Once they have gathered all of the letters, they must unscramble them to find the hidden code. An excellent lesson which engages all children. Also included is the lesson plan, posters for around the room and the sheet the children will write on. Has received excellent feedback in lesson observations and with Ofsted.

Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Investigative Addition and Subtraction Mercedes Challenge.

Differentiated three ways. The children are given a brochure for Mercedes with differentiated products (e.g. leather seats, sat-nav etc.) and how much each item costs. Children must use their budget to customise their car with the things they would like. The aim is to get as close to their budget as possible, without going over it. Great activity to engage children, can be done in pairs or individually. Prices can be easily adapted and other items added or removed to further differentiate as needed. Makes a fantastic lesson and has been used with Ofsted/observations to great results!

Word sorting activity, building vocabulary, zone of relevance.

A simple zone of relevance board. Children can use this for ANY topic as it is generic. Find words (either known or using a thesaurus) and sort them based on how well they describe the topic or person. The words which are okay sit on the outside, the words in the center of the diagram describe the person/topic perfectly. Can be a great starter task or activity for LAP.

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

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

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.
