I have created 15 anti-war slogan posters which teachers are free to use, discuss and share in their classrooms. They are a great way for launching and supporting classroom discussions. Why do people go to war? Is there such a thing as a just war? Is there always a solution which does not involve violence?

FREE KS2 21 Day Happiness Course For Kids And Teachers - Really works!

I have developed an idea. Did you know that during your registration period every day, you could be actively making your whole class happier? This could be done in the morning, the afternoon or even better at the end of each day before they go home. All they do is complete this 21 page daily journal on things which make them happy. I have used it and I can say it does make a big difference to how you approach life.

Weekly Happiness Diary - 7 Reasons to be cheerful...

Weekly Happiness Diary - 7 Reasons to be cheerful...

I have created a simple set of worksheets to help students to focus on what is good in their lives. They can complete this work at the beginning or the end of the day. They could even have it set as homework one week. The idea being that if students know they will need to write about being happy, they will actively seek out happiness to write about. When students write about being happy, they relive that happy moment, and of course become happier!

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job

Information Gap 1 - Looking for a Job Get the students working in pairs. Give one person of each pair the Student A page and the other the Student B page. There are four different jobs being advertised in the local paper. However, there are ten gaps on each page. Students should ask each other questions to find out the information that is missing from their page, then write it down, asking for spellings as necessary. Encourage them to communicate verbally to get the answers, rather than letting each other look at their pages! When all the students have finished, bring the group back together and ask checking questions to elicit the answers, as well as to find out how much the students have understood about the other material in the adverts.

Teaching students how to run or hide in a terrorist attack - Child friendly booklet.

Teaching students how to run or hide in a terrorist attack - Child friendly booklet.

After the Paris terrorist attack, good advice came out from homeland security on what to do if you face an attack. However it was focused on adults and not child friendly. I thought I would create a simple book which explains to children what is now recommended in the case of an active shooter attack. You should however still point out that this is an incredibly unlikely event - but one students now need to be prepared for.

September 4 Science Pack - Skeletons, Teeth and Senses PowerPoint and Display Material

September 4 Science Pack - Skeletons, Teeth and Senses PowerPoint and Display Material

I have created 4 great teaching packs for Science: Animal Skeleton Bones, Human Skeleton Bones, Teeth and Your Senses. You can download these packs, print them off and have an instant wonderful display. Alternatively, you would use them as PowerPoint presentations within a lesson to introduce or review a topic. They make excellent talking prompts for the class! Animal Skeletons: See different examples of animal bones. How are they similar? How do they differ from each other? There are bones of fish, whales, snake and cows, to mention just a few. Human Skeletons: Here is a nice resource pack which contains a lot of the different bones students need to learn about. The photos are fantastic. Teeth: This includes what we need to have nice teeth and a few photos of what happens if we are not careful with our teeth. There are also some animal pictures so you can discuss animal teeth shapes. Senses: A nice teaching pack about our 5 senses. This would make an excellent display or sorting activity.

You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching display about motivating children to think differently. The students could also take the laminated photos and sort them into different types of messages. The students can then discuss what they think of each one. The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.

Story Starter Cards - A wide range of fun story starters.

Story Starter Cards - A wide range of fun story starters.

The students can take these images and mix them up to create their own stories. There are two different ways of using this resource. You would separate the stories out, as I have done, or simple go wild, print them all out, laminate them and shuffle them and then use them as a starting point for student's own stories. The real challenge is to see if a class can use them all and still make a coherent story!
