Five lesson starters provide an engaging access point to the subject of sound and hearing across KS1 and KS2. At the end of each clip a question is posed. Clip 1 is a comedy about a man whose noisy neighbours keep him awake and asks the question: What materials are best to muffle sound? Clip 2 is a Sound Quiz. An elaborate montage of pictures and sounds are followed by a quiz where ten sounds are played back without any pictures. How many sounds can you recognise? Clip 3 is a little drama about a game of hide and seek in a wood. Gabby has trouble finding her friend until she realises that taking off her ear muffs help her pinpoint where he's hiding. In Clip 4 the professor tests out different sounds on his assistant Sam. How do they make her feel; happy, sad or indifferent? Clip 5 is about changing sound and features a drum group in a school finding out about changing the pitch of African drums. It finishes with a captivating drum performance

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 ( visu )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 574 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

In the main part of the lesson they study an entertaining Guardian review of the Hulk written as if it had been composed by the film's leading character and are then asked to write their own review.

Lesson starters ( visu )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 375 libraries worldwide
A Key Stage 2 lesson starter on literacy and characterisation, looking at the fairytale of Cinderella. The lesson starter explores how characters change during a story and how they can have very different perspectives on the same event. It focuses on the ball scene in Cinderella, and features the prince and one of the ugly sisters. It's the evening of the ball in the Cinderella Fairytale, and the prince is nervous. He uses the royal video diary room to share his thoughts and feelings about the evening; and as the night unfolds, he returns to the diary room to talk about what is happening on the dance floor. The ball seems to be going as badly as he feared - until a mysterious stranger appears. His diary entries are juxtaposed with those of one of the ugly sisters, who begins the evening very excited and hopeful, but whose night is destroyed when a girl in glass slippers gatecrashes the event. Using a familiar setting, the lesson starter is designed to support the teaching of characterisation at KS2, linking with the schemes of work for Years 4 and 5. It can be used as a stimulus to explore the differences between characters; what you can tell about them from their clothing and behaviour; what they think and feel; and how and why characters change during a story

As the tables and the number of children grow a pattern starts to appear. Can your pupils work out the pattern and predict how many children could come to the party if there were 100 tables?

Diplomas : a progress report ( visu )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 287 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
