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

Catherine the Great by Paul Burgess( Visual )

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

We visit Medway in Kent, where 60 out of 63 schools are already delivering a modern foreign language, as they continue to build capacity to meet the Government's 2010 deadline for every child at KS2 to have the opportunity to learn a foreign language. We find out how the local authority is adapting the KS2 Framework to support its non-specialist workforce, and take a snapshot of five different primaries - and one secondary school - trying to cope with the challenges of delivering meaningful and progressive language learning in time for 2010. Experiences range from Park Wood Junior School, where progressive language learning is supported by close adherence to the Medway programmes of study and creative timetabling; to Cliffe Woods Primary, where they're trialling a more cross-curricular approach.

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

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 344 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
