    Julia Donaldson's book The snail and the whale and How to make a snail sneeze http://www.amazon.com/How-Make-Snail-Sneeze-Thumbs-up/dp/1885735057 haven't read this one but have a similar one about slugs 50 ways to kill a slug possibly too 'horrible' for yr2s (though yr 6s. . )

    I did too. More as a 'WOW this person knows everything', kind of comment.
    It does indeed, but also exciting. I could certainly use that sort of idea and adapt it...Oooo got me thinking now.
    LOL have you read this thread???!!! Any more inspiration and I'll burst!!

    Right then a day today planning Santa's workshop independent activities, not too hard as loads on the net. Also planning maths and literacy for next week, again not too hard as will be Christmas linked and so hunting for resources is less tricky at this time of year. Then tomorrow putting together a vague outline plan for next term using all the ideas on here.

    Not sure who queried, but we did have two topics this term, but only because I rattled through the GFL whereas before they had eeked it out for a whole term. We can do one or two it matters not an awful lot.
  3. Yes indeed, after posting I read it back and thought - 'oh!' that maybe doesn't sound quite the way I intended it!!! I was meaning it in the way I hope you are now being inspired with your planning and your inspiration is flowing along nicely for you with your planning etc [​IMG]
    Do let us know what you end up doing.

    I try NEVER to do that with my posts...unless someone is hugely offended and then I think 'What???', read it back and then apologise massively. My posts never seem to read back quite the way I intend.

    I am indeed. Even feeling inspired for the next two weeks, where we have been told we need to keep on with LOs and SC for each and every lesson and to ensure we have maths and English every single day as well, though it can be Christmas themed. I think I'm just going to have to get on with it and if the workload it totally unfair, then so be it. No point sulking or teaching slightly naff lessons just to fit in. Going to have fun with Christmas and all that jazz!
    Hopefully it will all work out brilliantly...if not I'm not telling you!
