At Pencil Street this week we have some brand new ‘Animals and Us’ resources which support KS1 PHSE and citizenship.
This is a great topic to help your class learn about responsibility and needs of different animals, how to care for them and how to treat them with love and respect.
We have developed a wide range of resources around household pets, farm animals, wild animals and minibeasts. So whatever path you choose to help demonstrate this topic, we have something for you.
‘Animals and Us’ helps build awareness of our local environment and how to care for the animals that live there. Whether this be pets your students may have at home, local wildlife in the school grounds or endangered animals of the world.
Children need to learn no matter where they are all animals deserve to be treated with the same care and respect.
We have some great worksheets for comparing needs of animals, look out for resource numbers: 802-070 and 802-071 on the Pencil Street Website.
The second half of the spring term has begun so why not bring Spring into your classroom with our bright and colourful teaching resources!
We have a wide range of spring resources for all primary key stage levels.
Explore and encourage your pupils to talk about the features of spring, it’s sights sounds and smells, from baby animals to fresh flowers and of course Easter!
You can use the seasons to compliment teaching across all subject areas and challenge your students by asking them to look for signs of spring and record what they see when they are out and about, both at home and at school. Look out for classroom activity resource no V11-60 to support this!
We have some lovely display resources to create a real impact for the spring term and If you are planning ahead you can also find some great Easter resources on the Pencil Street website.
You will find our Easter resources in both the ‘Religious Education‘ section and the ‘Special Days‘ sections of our website.
We love to hear from you and would love to see your Spring projects! Get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Circus has come to Pencil Street!
This week we have uploaded lots of new resources for Early Years, KS1 and KS2. These are all suitable to support IPC Milepost 1-“The circus is coming to town”.
We love to be entertained and to enjoy ourselves, children even more so! Laughing and having fun play such an important part in our lives. So why not explore the bright and colourful world of the circus with your class?
This vibrant topic can compliment the curriculum in a number of ways. In art we can find out how to draw faces and understand expressions and design posters for circus themed role play. History can lead us to finding out about circuses in the past and how they have changed in recent years. In P.E, dance and music you can explore balance, movement and rhythm.
We have a variety of fun resources to get the kids engaged at all levels and some great display resources that will help make a great feature of this topic in your class and compliment teaching in all curriculum areas.
