The Iron Man Hook introduction Lesson 1

The Iron Man Hook introduction Lesson 1

(0)
An ideal Powerpoint and stand alone lesson to introduce the story The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - A fantastic activity to get the children ( Y3,4,5) to ask questions about the text working in pairs or bigger groups. It worked really well if the question sheet was printed off in A3 - discuss with them the type of question they could ask and which one they would get more information on e.g open rather than closed type of question. Although not the start of book it proved successful to get the class thinking about the new text - enjoy !!

Robin Hood Comprehension (general)

Robin Hood Comprehension (general)

(0)
A Robin Hood comprehension activity that is a general comprehension with levelled activities attached- This I have done with my mixed aged (Year 3-Year 6) class with great success pitching the more able children at which ever activity is suitable to them like the mild, chilli, spicy, hot, very hot approach with children progressing at their own pace - this is a stand alone lesson but would fit ideally with reading and legends and myths as a class and has intitiated great discussion and debate as many of the class are fully aware of the legend of Robin Hood ! I hope this helps and is ideal as I say for a one off lesson !

Perseverance assembly - Climbing a mountain

(0)
Perseverance assembly - Climbing a mountain This is an assembly of mine I did to all of Key Stage 2 over 200 children in the hall to talk to them about the idea of Perservance and what this meant and was all about - the opening slide is a video one and I got them to try and guess the title of the assembly as they came in and watched it - the other slides are for points on discussion and information in regard to this and resilience also - this went very well and the children did get the message !

Apostrophe for contraction powerpoint and activities attached - This was used in a class for a 50 minute observed lesson for a Year 3 post - The deputy head who watched it thought it was outstanding and the children learnt a great deal and particularly liked the coloured choices (levels) the children chose themselves - All you need is post it notes and big paper to stick around the room !

Inference - Guided reading inference lesson !!
martynxxxxmartynxxxx

Inference - Guided reading inference lesson !!

(1)
Please find the guided reading inference lesson attached - This I did for an interview just last week and got the job as class teacher ! I had a small class of 15 children mixed ages from Years 3 -6 evenly split across the 3 tables and this lesson lasted for 30minutes. On each table I put a pair of boots, a picture/photo sheet , a piece of text as you will see from the powerpoint then a set of bronze, silver and gold level questions. The children had just over 5 minutes to look at the picture, look at the object and read the text followed by answering the questions. This was accessible to all and the questions were harder in each level - after 5 minutes they then took the question sheet with them and went to the next table and repeated the process. After 15 minutes or so I stopped them as they had all then completed the 3 tables of inference work and brought the children to the carpet. I then talked through my plenary questions on the person as the powerpoint. The children then completed the little feedback slip on my lesson. Both the Headteacher and governors really liked the lesson, as did the children and I have subsequently got the job ! Although it is based on me and my interests it could easily be adapted to suit anyone and encourage the children to play detectives for a change from the usual guided reading carosuel style activity - I feel this is a great lesson and great resource and would be a great revision tool in preparation for SATS particularly for Year 6 or just a different reading activity as I say for younger children. Any queries or questions do ask !!

Science and DT car build project for Upper Key Stage 2

(0)
A great resource that my colleague and I completed over a 1/2 term in the afternoon lessons to build a car out of wood and plastic - wheels parts etc we bought off EBay and YPO catalog for the children who completed one between 2 - this used their maths skills, construction skills and science forces skills as they have to build an elastic band powered car that would hold a 1kg weight and travel down the school corridor - It went really well as a project that we ran for 2 different year groups. This would work for early secondary school DT also and is a great cross curricular lesson and activity - any questions do ask away !

A great Powerpoint to continue the story from where the Iron Man landed at the foot of the cliff - this to be used in conjunction with the class book The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - I have also modelled an example of mine to give them an idea of what and how to write rather than a balank page . The lesson went very well for a longer write and planning session
