Description

These evidence-based learning (EBL) lessons are based on classroom practice that has been proven, by research, to maximise thinking, learning and attainment. From an extensive review of educational research, we identified the eight key classroom thinking and learning skills that were common across these research papers. We named these eight key skills “EBL skills”.

EBL skills have been proven by research to maximise learning because they combine the most productive thinking skills with the most effective learning behaviours. Each of our evidence-based learning lessons uses the English curriculum as a framework through which the eight EBL skills are delivered.

Teachers also have the opportunity to add to their own skill set or refresh their existing skills with our five-minute CPD activity, based on one of the EBL skills used in this lesson.

    Teachers – Add Some Magic Beans to Your English Lessons with the “Beans for Cows and not a Bitcoin in sight” – Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

    I’ve just discovered an amazing KS2 English lesson based on the traditional story of Jack and the Beanstalk. It’s called “Beans for Cows and not a Bitcoin in sight” and it would make a brilliant addition to any primary classroom.

    This ready-to-use lesson develops English skills AND evidence-based learning skills at the same time! Win-win! The student activities focus on the key skill of paragraphing, including:

    – Looking in detail at the five reasons for starting a new paragraph

    – Identifying examples of these five reasons in the Jack and the Beanstalk story

    – Writing a summary of the five reasons

    As well as the literacy focus, activities also build vital learning skills like collaboration, peer teaching and peer assessment.

    But wait, there’s more! This fantastic resource also includes an evidence-based 5 minute CPD activity for teachers on effective peer assessment strategies. The CPD consists of a research extract, followed by a simple checklist of reflection questions to help apply the strategies immediately.

    With its dual academic and CPD focus, this complete lesson package truly does feel magical! Your KS2 students will love exploring a classic tale whilst building their English and learning skills simultaneously.

    And the price? All the golden eggs from a giant’s goose? Nope! This resource won’t cost you a single Bitcoin, just a mere £2 and your time to download and deliver a lesson that could grow into something spectacular!

    Will you be planting some magic beans in your classroom?
