In this lesson-by-lesson (26 slide) slideshow a primary age child introduces us to each cog in turn, using 2 starter stimuli: the ‘I feel good’ song by Fischy Music and the ‘Mr Jelly’ story animation.
A model that has worked well to date for whole school roll-out is as follows…
1 cog is introduced at assembly per week/fortnight using the slideshow and activities provided.
The large playground cogs are often used as a large visual prompt for each assembly, if you have them available in school.
Teachers plan follow up learning activities in class time to consolidate learning about each cog.
Different classes can share their work at the beginning of the next assembly, or at an intervening week if following a fortnightly plan (depending on the number of classes in your school it may work to schedule a rota for different classes to share their work across the entire block eg. orange cog feedback P7a, P4b, P2a / green cog feedback P5b, P3a, P1b etc.)
A display of work may be added to and built up over the weeks in the assembly hall or other communal space.
The 1-cog-at-a-time pupil workbook offers a useful framework for teachers to make use of in their own way, and with tasks dependent on the age & stage of their pupils.
Alternatively, teachers might mix and match worksheets and ideas from the members area of the website if preferred. Some
