Qatar History and Desert Bundle

Qatar History and Desert Bundle

8 Resources
I lived and I worked in Qatar for a year. I know that while you need to teach about Qatar History, the books you are given are not easy to use and certainly won’t last you a whole year and so I took the books I was given and I extended the tasks to produce a more interesting and more supportive learning environment, ideal for both the teachers and their students to get a lot more out of this topic.
Victorian Bundle

Victorian Bundle

6 Resources
This is my Victorian bundle. It is an interesting collection of different resources. In some ways, Victorians were similar to us, in other ways, they held very different opinions to modern Britons. These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.

Science Day or Science Week Presentation - videos, introduction to science and draw a scientist

(0)
Science week is a great time to discuss the importance of science. Some countries such as India have Science Day, while other celebrate International Science Week. The idea is for the students to draw a scientist at the start of the lesson... then compare what they thought science was (generally a wild haired, white guy doing crazy stuff in a lab) with what they thought science was at the end of the lesson and hopefully there has been a change of ideas. This presentation has links to 2 great YouTube videos which explain why science is so important to everyone. I also listed some of key branches of science, with a brief introduction and pictures. The idea is to discuss how science affects our every day life and how in reality, we are all scientists at heart.

FREE KS1 21 Day Happy Kids Course - Makes Children Happier!

(0)
I found a wonderful 21 day happiness course (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks2-21-day-happiness-course-for-kids-and-teachers-really-works-11205744), which I personally use daily. However it is not very useful for younger children. I rewrote it, getting the students to think about 4 things which are good in their lives and one moment of happiness from the current day. You would be amazed how hard this is for children to do. By doing this each day, every day for 21 days, picking out the positive and happy moments becomes a part of their every day existence. It has an additional benefit in the fact that this is also an excellent point of time for teachers and children to discuss each day what makes them feel good and what went well on the day. I would recommend this as an afternoon activity. To see examples of my own journals and those of my 6 year old son, please visit my blog at http://www.Barefootbuddies. com.
