At the time of Chinese New Year it is traditional to give money in a red envelope to family and friends. In Chinese culture red is a symbol of good luck and so the gifts are a way of wishing ‘good fortune’ for the coming year.

It is easily set up using readily available materials and minimal preparation.
The resource includes a challenge worksheet, red envelope template and brief facilitator notes.

This resource includes a set of three differentiated word search sheets around the theme of Van Gogh. The words included relate to various times of the artist’s life and his unique painting style.
Answer sheets are also included which allow students to check their own or other’s work or just make things easier for you, the teacher.
This resource is a great activity to reinforce what children have already learned about the artist. It’s also a good activity for early finishers and makes a lovely addition to Van Gogh themed projects.
This resource has been used with KS2 students but, would work equally well with other year groups depending on ability.
These matching cards are an ideal way for children to learn about the participating teams in the World Cup 2018 along with their national flags and capital cities.
This resource contains the following:
32 cards featuring the flag and country name of every team
32 cards featuring the flag and corresponding capital cities
The cards are useful for all year groups as so many games can be played depending on age.
Best printed on card or use paper and laminate so that they can be used many times over.
This activity is great to do at the start of the new school year.
As the children work through the activity they will focus their minds firstly, on some of the brilliant things that they can already do - play the guitar, swim, count to one million , speak French, tie their shoe laces the list can go on and on. Next up they need to think about what makes them special, children should be encouraged to concentrate on character traits but most will add things about their physical appearance too. Finally, each child needs to think about what they would like to achieve this year or term- learn to swim, get better at fractions, improve handwriting, concentrate more in class these then become their goals and are added to their shields.
Children can write or draw their answers on their shields making it an ideal activity for all age groups and abilities. It is a fun and creative way for children to develop a positive mindset about themselves and encourages children to take ownership of their goals.
