6 week unit of work linked to curriculum theme - Amazon Rainforest. Throughout this theme, children will explore the work of artists such as Henri Rousseau and contemporary artist Ruth Daniels, to further their understanding in geography and the rainforest regions of South America. These artists give excellent opportunities to discuss composition; where the whole picture is filled with foliage, to compare the observational skills of the artists; to express preferences and extend the use of artistic language and vocabulary.

70 Fun Spelling Activities

70 Fun Spelling Activities

(0)
70 Spelling activities to reinforce weekly spelling words. Can be used with EYFS, KS1, KS2, and KS3. Here is a large collection of spelling activities that can be used with a range of ages without much editing. I have tried to make them as interesting as possible by using fancy fonts, colours, images and GiFs. I have attached a few screen shots of some of the activities. The activities work best when shown on an ActivInspire Flipchart because there are GiF images and files attached, however, I have also converted the slides to PDF so all can use them. Some pages require you to add the spelling words, some do not. Please feel free to edit as you wish and suggest ways that this resource can be improved. I hope you enjoy them and get use out of them.

Titanic Theme Music with sound effects

(0)
I created this piece of music to use with my year 2 class during their study of the Titanic. We used the music in PE to create an interpretive dance to. They absolutely loved it, especially the boys! The piece of music goes through the journey of the Titanic, from it setting sail and crowds wishing the passengers luck, to the fun on the ship including the Irish party, then the Titanic seeing and hitting the iceberg and finally to the disaster of it sinking. All created using sound effects and music.

Guided Reading Making Connections Poster and Prompts

(0)
I have created two Making Connections Posters; one with key questions and the other with sentence starters for pupils use for making connections between the text they are reading and themselves, another text and the world. This activity helps pupils to deeper their understanding of a text through making links for themselves. Use the think-aloud strategy to model how to make each type of connection, using your list of personal connections to the particular text. This activity is brilliant when pupils extracting specific information from the text that they then make links to.

Maths calculating time intervals with Amazon rainforest link

(0)
Links to cross curricular theme - Amazon rainforest. This is a challenging maths activity where pupils have to calculate how long the journey takes from Manchester airport to Manaus airport in the Amazon rainforest. Pupils will have to calculate up to 3 different flights per journey and include any layover or connection times in their final total journey time answer. On the activity worksheet, there are six different journeys all with the same destination. Pupils could be further challenged by calculating which journey is the quickest/slowest and order them. The flight times have been taken from the internet and were accurate on 22nd April 2017. We have been reading Journey to the River Sea in class and Maia (main character) in the book travels from England to Manaus, so this activity is a great link.

cross curricular orienteering clues - 2D and 3D shapes 10 orienteering clues for OAA PE lessons with 10 flags and score cards for teams of 2. I laminated the flags, hole punched, attached string then dotted them around the school field attached to the fence, trees and other objects. I then paper clipped the shape clues to the flags. I gave each pair of children a different shape which they then had to find the properties for and the number of the flag that the clues were attached to. Aimed at KS2.
