Ancient Greece / Greeks KS2 Acropolis / Temples / Architecture / Letters / DT

(0)
Looking at famous buildings from around the world, the pupils are hooked into learning about architecture. A letter arrives from the original designer of the Parthenon / Acropolis and explains the process of Greek temple design. Pupils are led through a notebook file of how to research, design and make their own temple and later write replies to Ictarus with their evaluations. An outstanding lesson with images, the letter from the designer, links to good videos etc - all you need (except Greek non fiction books or photocopies of relevant pages from books about temples) to teach background knowledge, engage pupils and teach literacy skills . Includes a notebook file for projecting and leading pupils through the lesson. Part of a full series on Ancient Greeks available either separately or as a full pack at a reduced cost. I have been teaching over twenty years and consistently judged as outstanding.

Transition game - end of year - autism - moving on up - secondary school - changing schools

(0)
A game for transition for a child who may struggle with change e.g. suitable for pupils with learning difficulties, social and emotional difficulties or Autistic characteristics. I have used this game from Y1 up to Y6 but it works best with Y2 up as the pupils can read the cards for themselves. You can "man up" the cards for Y6 with your school logo with the pictures are or other designs made by the pupils themselves. I used to work as an advisory support teacher, have been a SENCO and am now a learning support teacher overseas in a highly regarded international school. I have recent teaching outstanding experience from the UK so have lots of experience over 25 years in education. Over these many years and jobs I have spent ages developing resources and training. I hope you find this game useful for individuals or groups in your class. Please look at my other resources. When I shared them freely I had over half a million downloads in total. Now I'm coming up to retiring and working overseas, I'm trying to supplement my salary by selling the resources. All pictures are from FreePic Teach2012

This unit includes all you need to teach for around a term to KS2. There are lesson power points with back up activities, sheets, discussion points, resources, assessments etc. There is an assessment and a scheme of work to go with the powerpoint too. Covers rules, who is my neighbour/Good Samaritan, Sermon on the Mount, Mother Teresa. Jewish Shema, Sikh 5 Ks, Buddhist 5 precepts, 5 Pillars of Islam and life of St Paul in the New Testament (these are only story references with pages linked to books we have in school so you would need to develop this slide further if you do not have children’s Bibles to read from). I will build on this next year but we had a long term so I added them in to keep me going… The PPT has 10 lessons and 63 slides with activities. You can pretty much walk into the room and teach from it, without further resources. Ideal if RS cover teacher or non-specialist too. I have developed a whole unit work from Year 5 up to Year 8 which I am now uploading. These have taken me hundreds of hours so I hope this saves you lots of time. Happy Sunday!
