In this section I am going to be creating two lesson plans for the two topics I have chosen – learning to add and subtract and learning about the human body. My lesson plans will explain exactly what is going to happen within the lesson. My numeracy lesson on adding and subtracting will be on the morning at 9am and the science lesson on the human body will be at 2pm – the afternoon lesson. Learning to add and subtract

Aim
This lesson plan aims to teach children aged 6-8 years old to add and subtract and is likely to last approximately 40 minutes. This lesson is aimed to the middle ages or the age group - children who are around 7 years old. Specific aim

The aim of this lesson is for the children to review how to add, subtract and use number bonds to ten. Also they will learn how to use number bonds to twenty by using addition and subtraction. This will then lead to the children learning larger number bond up to 30 or 40 depending on their progress in this lesson. In the previous lesson they learnt what number bonds were and how to use them. Objectives

The objectives of this lesson are:
* To be able to recognise simple addition and subtraction * To understand number bonds to 10 and be more fluent when answering them * To learn number bonds to 20
* To make children more confident when using number bonds Learning Resources and materials
To ensure that this lesson works well and is successful, a range of materials will be supplied. * For the introduction a simple addition and subtraction worksheet called adding and taking away in the garden will be used to get the children’s brain working and think about this area of numeracy, there will be enough worksheets for one each in the class. Also in the introduction a PowerPoint reviewing what they did in the previous lesson on number bonds to ten will be shown to get the children thinking about number bonds specifically. (see appendix one and two) * In the main activity another PowerPoint will be shown to the children but this time on number bonds to twenty. It is an introduction on learning bigger number bonds and will be an information game. Also there will be two worksheets for the children to complete, one is a cutting and sticking worksheet therefore the children will need glue, scissors and task book. The other is just a normal work which the children will need a pencil to complete it with. (see appendix three and four and five) * In the final activity - which is the plenary – the children will play a matching game in which they will match number bonds together. The resources used for this will be the matching cards – they will have ten cards per two people. They will also need a small whiteboard and pen to write the sums they find when matching the pairs; the whiteboard will be photocopied at the end of the lesson and put in their work books. (see appendix 6) * For the first two activities (introduction and main activity) the children will be supplied with a pencil to write with including a rubber between each table for any mistakes they make. Environment

The learning environment for this lesson will be in the classroom because the children are working on worksheets and watching PowerPoint’s about the chosen topic. In the classroom the children will move from the carpet area to the tables – they will sit at the tables when they are doing the worksheets and will sit at the carpet when they are listening to the teacher. The layout of the classroom will never change throughout the lesson because it will waste time, be hazardous to the children and is not necessary. Teacher desk

Introduction – for the first part of the lesson, the children will go straight to their tables and work on the worksheet on addition and subtraction. The teacher will prepare the next part of the lesson by...
