Teachers at Cuffley School share three of their best maths ideas about shape and space. Years 2 and 3 explore the characteristics of different shapes using elastic. Firstly they use elastic bands on their fingers. Then with long pieces of elastic they make large shapes in the classroom using their bodies. At The Wroxham School Year 1 go on a shape hunt. This school has a Jeep on the school field and a motorbike and sidecar in the library! The children are enthused by finding mathematical shapes in the real world. Back at Cuffley School Year 3 are turning 2D in to 3D shapes. Using drinking straws and modelling dough they have to construct 3D shapes from 2D diagrams, drawing on their geometrical knowledge. In the plenary the children play a game where they have to listen to the properties of a shape being described, then guess what 3D shape it is. All the activities in this programme show aspects of geometry, shape and space using creative and absorbing ideas
Catherine the Great by Alexander Korda( Visual )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A minor German princess with connections to Swedish royalty, the future Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia began as the handpicked bride of the future Czar. When he ascended the throne, Catherine plotted his overthrow, took power, and began to pull her country out of the dark ages. She led Russia for 30 years, creating an enviable dynasty build on cunning and ruthlessness, in addition to newfound notions of justice, progress, and a centralized government. Ahead of her time, Catherine the Great stands as a model for light in a time of great cultural and sociological darkness. In blending discussion of the facts by scholars, each presenting a particular slant on Catherine's life and conduct, with fictional recreations of pivotal events in her life, this film presents a well-rounded portrait of 18th Century Europe's most 'enlightened' despot

AST Dr. Robin Whitburn at St Mary's School in Hendon plans a lesson about British relations with her colonial subjects for his post GCSE study group. Both he and Sara Bubb, Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Education, are great believers in the importance of identifying a key question. In this lesson the key question is about British and African expectations of each other and how were they expressed in illustrations. He starts with a lively opener about which World Cup African qualifiers are former colonies of which European power. He allows for differentiation with standard, super and super upgrade categories of complexity. He then moves on to looking at historical illustrations and ask his students to decode the relationship displayed therein. He completes his plan with a plenary on the expectations the Africans had about themselves. His advice to other teachers is not to stay awake at night worrying about planning the next day's lesson
Diplomas a progress report( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new 14-19 Diplomas were rolled out in just under 150 schools nationwide in September 2008 amidst controversy as to content and worth. We talk to the teachers who have spent the past six months delivering the five pioneer subjects in: Creative and Media; IT; Construction; Engineering; and Society, Health and Development. They reveal the lessons learnt so far, including the need for painstaking planning; careful time-tabling; time for the consortia to gel; and continuing concerns around assessment. While worries about rural schools and the distance needed to be travelled by some consortia diploma pupils were well aired prior to launch, some urban schools report issues as well, in particular about post code territorialism. For instance pupils based in London E9 were unwilling to travel to N16 schools to study for their Diplomas. Interviewees include Diploma champions Sir Mike Tomlinson and Toyota boss Sir Alan Jones, as well as school staff and students
