Celebrated on the night of October 31st Traditional activities include: Trick-or-treating Carving jack-o-lanterns Costume parties Visiting "haunted houses" Origin of Halloween celebration of the end of the harvest season Samhain was a time used by the ancient pagans to take stock of supplies and prepare for winter The ancient Gaels believed that on October 31, the boundaries between living and the dead overlapped and the deceased would come back to cause havoc such as sickness or damaged crops Masks and costumes were worn in an attempt to mimic the evil spirits or appease them. Why we should avoid celebrating Halloween? Halloween is a harmful innovation among Christians which takes one closer to shirk. The Bible forbids witches, satanic practices etc. but Halloween is generally regarded as fun. Hudhur said it should always be remembered that any ‘fun’ that is based on shirk or any harmful way is to be avoided.

Transcript: Opportunities for development My vision for English Independent writing Sufficient opportunities for children to write both in context and out of genre, and in genre out of context, choice of independent writing tasks, shadowing English manager and liaising with a SLE to ensure extended independent writing is part of the planning cycle. 'Bridging' gaps in English: Supporting progression from year 5 to year 6, building a set of skills to transfer, adapting units to challenge, booster group for 'inspired writers'. Purpose for writing: Using trips to stimulate writing, sharing work with year 3, providing 'real life' learning to motivate and excite, parent topic morning workshops. A language-rich learning environment: A strong focus on the importance of speaking, reading, and writing for all learners, a variety of books, reading awards and class book display, real-life literacy. Pupil generated success criteria Inspirational interventions in place for identified vulnerable groups of learners Develop marking policy to ensure feedback encourages children to identify their next steps and focus on progression Foster a culture of editing and improving writing Learning walks to improve the level of challenge (e.g. displays, modelling, working wall) Peer work/ group work (e.g. peer coaching/ peer questioning) Personalised writing targets regularly reviewed and updated " If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader" (John Quincy Adams) "A good leader inspires others with confidence in him; a great leader inspires them with confidence in themselves" (anon) Orchard Lea is a creative, innovative and well-known primary school providing an outstanding curriculum and learning environment for all of the children. Parents are involved in their child's education and have excellent relationships with the school. Children learn from themselves and each other in an exciting and challenging way. Staff are proud to be part of a team at Orchard Lea and have a strong desire to help the children on their individual journeys to become the very best they can be! My vision for English “The best leaders don’t know just one style of leadership – they are all skilled at several, and have the flexibility to switch between styles as the circumstances dictate.” – Daniel Goleman Develop our taught curriculum including increased opportunities for maths and English in light of the new National Curriculum and our school values. Leading and managing improvement Develop provision through outstanding teaching and learning so all pupils are enabled to make good progress within every lesson. There will be a special focus on the able pupil and pupil premium children. Develop Writing mentors Advance use of book corners and class book Empowering children to have more choice in their reading and writing Ensure planning shows coverage, content and progression; support year groups in planning new units/developing existing units. Form cluster moderation opportunities for each year group Monitor and observe the use of guided writing to develop good practice Create opportunities for more peer observation Develop an increased transparency in our partnership working with parents incorporating learning, behaviour and pupil wellbeing. My vision for English Reading mentors in every class Children working with class teachers to support peers, launched summer reading challenge, planned visits to the infant school, reading mentor handbooks used. Shape coding integrated into English teaching and learning Staff meeting delivered, resource packs given to teachers, Shape coding displays, extra support given to SENCO and support staff for use as an intervention. Spelling strategy consolidating the aims of the New Curriculum: Encourage progression, develop exploration of vocabulary, multisensory approach. Reading for pleasure: Combined into guided reading sessions, class reading champions, class book built into timetable, home- school reading journals monitored by reading mentors, paired reading opportunities. Develop ‘Parent Power’ within our library Parent workshops Informal parent evenings on key areas of our English curriculum Create English home learning toolkits for parents and children Parent readers and training Increase the profile of home/ school reading records Aspirational shared values: The school and the team have a clear sense of direction. Focus on improvement and explicit expectations: Detailed criteria and definitions to support high-performance teaching and learning. Data-rich decision taking: To develop targeted interventions Clear targets: Explicit outcomes e.g. reviewing target setting Job-related development strategies: Supporting other colleagues with effective development Coaching to improve performance: Sustained support to build confidence and enable change Team-based learning and working: Working as a team with a common purpose, high trust, complementary skills and mutual confidence.

Transcript: Organ Systems Tissues Working together form Unit 1- Biology Working together form Organs Cells Concept Map Template By: Hannah Greig Working together form Why is this important? The cell cycle's important because without it we wouldn't get new cells for growth and repair. Humans would not survive without the cell cycle. Cell Cycle Cell Cycle The phases of Mitosis; Prophase: The cell starts to break down structures and build others up, setting the stage for division of chromosomes. And then the spindle begins to "capture" chromosomes. Metaphase: The spindle has captured all the chromosomes and lined them up at the middle of the cell, ready to divide. Anaphase: The sister chromatids seperate from each other and are pulled towards opposite ends of the cell. Telophase: The cell is nearly done dividing, and it starts to re-establish its normal structures as cytokinesis takes place. What happens when it's uncontrolled? When mitosis gets out of control, cells divisions are being made continuously, without an end point. As a result, this problem could lead to various types of cancer. Early Frog Embryo Cell Specialization and Differentiation Cell Specialization and Differentiation The cells are not yet differentiated into distinct cell types. Cells specialize to form different tissues and organs (the eye and heart are visible). Plant vs Animal Plant vs Animal Both are eukaryotic cells. Centrosomes and lysosome are found in animal cells. Animal cells don't have a cell wall or chloroplasts. Round shaped. Cilia is present. Centrosomes and lysosomes don't exist within plant cells. Plant cells do have a cell wall or chloroplasts. Rectangular shaped Most plant cells don't contain cilia. Animal cell Plant cell Tissue is a cellular organizational level intermediate between cells and a complete organ. Organs are then formed by the functional grouping together of multiple tissues. Definition Definition Epithelial tissue covers the body surface and forms the lining for most internal cavities. Connective tissue is the most abundant and the most widely distributed of the tissues. There are three types of muscle tissue: skeletal, and cardiac Nerve tissue is composed of specialized cells which not only receive stimuli but also conduct impulses to form all parts of the body. 4 types of tissues in the human body 4 types of tissues in the human body A part of an organism that is typically self-contained and has specific vital function, such as the heart or liver in humans. Definition Definition Skin Brain Heart Liver Pancreas Stomach Small Intestine Large Intestine Lungs Kidneys At least 10 examples At least 10 examples Skeletal system provides support and structure, stores calcium, minerals, fats, marrow. Integumentary system provides protection regulates body temp, prevents water loss. Muscle system provides body movement and generates heat when muscles contact. Nervous system controls body movement, consciousness, intelligence, memory. Endocrine system secretes hormones which regulate body and cellular growth, chemical levels in the body, and reproductive functions. Circulatory system pumps blood to distribute hormones, nutrients and gases and removes wastes. Lymphatic system transports and filters lymph and initiates immune response. Digestive system mechanically and chemically breakdowns food materials, absorbs nutrients and expels waste. Respiratory system is responsible for the exchange of gases within the body between blood and lungs. Urinary system filters the blood and removes waste from it concentrates waste into urine and expels urine from body Reproductive system produces sex cells, hormones and when in conjunction allows for fertilization.
