Hi welcome to my shop! I'm currently Head of Humanities, but I've also been head of department at a number of other schools, not to mention head of year. So I have a lot of high quality resources to share. I take real pride in trying to ensure my resources are well presented, clear, easy to use and of course challenging and engaging for the students. They have taken me a lot of time to make, but hopefully they will save you a lot of time. If you have any feedback then please review me!

Taboo Game 1
laumorrowlaumorrow

Taboo Game 1

(0)
This is a fun taboo style game where the students have to guess a word without using any of the ‘Taboo’ words. The instructions are all included on the second slide, and there are 125 slides so the game should take 30+ min to complete. This is an excellent starter/plenary/activity/ice breaker or even a reward. Taboo is an excellent game to improve students literacy and oracy, and is highly recommended to jazz up the lessons at the end of the long autumn term. If you like this then why not check out my other taboo games?

Year 7 Survey - Transition Questionnaire and Evaluation

(1)
This was a survey I created when completing my NPQSL. I made it from an amalgamation of serveal other surveys I had seen used at other schools. It proved to be a useful and a powerful tool. I used it to gather information about how we could improve our transition procedures, but it could easily be adapted to find out what the students think of their school. A fantastic aid to pupils voice in school.
Marriage and Family Loop Revision Quiz
laumorrowlaumorrow

Marriage and Family Loop Revision Quiz

(0)
This is a fantastic twist on the flash cards idea that will prove to be a really useful revision tool in class. INSTRUCTIONS: There are 28 cards with key words on one side and their definitions on the other side. The twist, no one has a matching key word and definition. So they need to call out their key word and everyone must look at their definitions to see if they have the definition to that key word. If they do, they flip their card over and read out their key word and so on until you go all around the class and back to the first person who read out. This can get really competitive and forces the students to learn ALL the key words and definitions. You can make up your own rules (personally I time it, and every time there is a mistake I make them swap cards and start again!). This activity can easily be adapted to other schemes of work or even other subjects. I have used it for RE, History and Humanities. A fantastic and useful resource.
Letter to myself
laumorrowlaumorrow

Letter to myself

(2)
This lesson is most effective in year 7 or 8. Students are asked to write a letter to themselves to explain what they are like and what they want in the future. Then in year 11 (or 13) they open the letter and see how much they have changed and grown since the wrote the letter. A really fun and interesting lesson that shows how much the students grow while they are at school.
