Those of you teaching Grace Darling as a famous person at KS1, perhaps as part of a broader sea-based topic, will be delighted to discover that we have now completely revised and updated the Grace Darling planner which is available to subscribers, on request, now. By the end of the month the 3 remaining enquiry-led lessons, all fully-resourced with their own PowerPoints and activity resource sheets, will have been uploaded. Drafts of these can be obtained on request , by email, while we clear the final pieces of copyright.
KQ2 has some fun prioritising activities, whereas KQ4 uses the Prove it! strategy which encourages pupils to work in pairs touring a gallery of images which provide clues for the statements they are testing out.

But which will they be and what labels will you choose?
