The Relief Teachers’ Survival Handbook for 10 to 12 year olds Thank you for purchasing The Relief Teachers’ Survival Handbook for 10 to 12 year olds. This book is written for the teacher who needs an emergency lesson and for the relief teacher who has been asked to cover for an absent regular teacher. On many occasions, work may already be set for the relief teacher. However, there may be other occasions where not all the day is accounted for. As the relief teacher, you may be expected to fill these times with your own lessons. This book covers every subject, so you can feel confident about meeting the expectations of the school or teacher you are relieving. The lessons require a minimum of preparation but are educationally meaningful, and can be adapted to suit particular lesson goals and abilities.

Notes for the Relief Teacher

The real motto of the consummate relief teacher is to be prepared. You can help yourself by:

y Arriving early. If you’re going to be late, phone ahead. There’s nothing worse from the school’s point of view than not knowing when, or indeed if, they have a relief teacher for the day. y Bringing your own materials. Items might include: red, blue and black pen, correction fluid, pencil, rubber, scissors, glue, ruler, permanent marker and whiteboard marker. y It is also useful to have paper of various types available for emergency use.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons Arrive at • leastf 30 minutes prior to school You’ll this time orientate yourself o rr e v i e wstarting. pu r pneed os e stoo nl y • - find your room, the toilets, the staff room, look over the lessons and make any necessary photocopies.

y Last but not least, bring your copy of The Relief Teachers’ Survival Handbook! When you Ar rive Arrive y

y Check in at the school office.

m . u

y Introduce yourself to the principal/head teacher at some stage during the day.

w ww

y Introduce yourself to your nearest teacher neighbour. They will usually fill you in on any missing information. Managing your Day

. te

y Find out if you’re on duty. If there’s an incident in the playground and you’re not there when you should be, you can be held responsible.

o c . che e r o t r s super

y Familiarise yourself with the classroom timetable and try to keep to it as much as possible to minimise disruptions. Alterations to routines can unsettle children’s learning patterns and are best avoided. y Calling the class roll usually takes place first thing in the morning, and perhaps again for the afternoon session. Use the correct marking key and check for any difficult names to pronounce. y Don’t leave a pile of unmarked work on the teacher’s desk, especially work you have set yourself. To ease your own workload, perhaps you may get the children to mark their own work during the day. At the very least you should see every child’s work and leave a tick with your initials on the work to say it has been seen. y Leave the teacher’s desk and the room as tidy as possible. Better still leave the room tidier than you found it. y Leave a note to the teacher on what work you covered. There is a photocopiable sheet on Page 2 of this book for this purpose. Page 4

Managing the Lessons - Getting the Most out of the Children It can be difficult for a relief teacher to build rapport with children, given the limited time frame. Children will naturally feel you out to get an idea of the boundaries they can work to. Here are some points to help you manage the classroom effectively and get the most out of children: y Stand at the class entrance, smile and say good morning to each student that enters the class. This creates a positive energy and builds the right atmosphere for learning right from the start. y Get to know children’s names - not the easiest of tasks since you are there for a short time. However, children respond better when they hear their name, so it’s worth the effort. Ask children to write their names on a name tag and tape it to their desk.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

y Motivate children from the very start. Research shows that children’s interest is highest at the beginning of each lesson, so take full advantage of this and begin your lesson brightly and get straight to the point.

Teac he r

y Write the learning objectives of each lesson on the board. Research shows a higher level of achievement if the object of the lesson is known before it starts.

ew i ev Pr

y Be polite. Ask children what you want them to do, e.g. “Could you please get your science books out?”; rather than giving them directions all the time. y Check how the classroom teacher normally expects work to be done and parrot the preferred way. This lessens confusion and provides a greater sense of continuity for the children. For example - how is the page set out, what coloured biro is allowed, what work books are to be used? etc. y Given the above, be wary of allowing children to take over the class by telling you throughout the day how things usually operate. Remind children that it’s OK to do things a little differently sometimes, after all, you are the teacher.

© ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons •f orr evi ew pur posesonl y•

y Children, being children, will take advantage of their classroom teacher’s absence and try to ‘get away’ with things they normally would not be permitted to do. One way to handle this is to preface the day by stating to the children you expect them to follow their normal classroom procedures and routines. If children ask you questions you don’t know the answer to, ask them in turn: “If your teacher was here today, would that be permitted?”

. te

m . u

w ww

y Find out what the school policy is on discipline. Excluding children from learning is detrimental to your own purpose and is not recommended. Usually subtle reminders to children can be effective, e.g. wait for students to be silent, make eye contact and engage children in conversation if they appear to be off task. You may also consider isolating and shifting some children who appear to be disruptive influences. y Don’t threaten children. It’s a sign you don’t really feel in control and children will pick up on this very quickly. Remain calm and remind children of the importance of completing tasks. Use positive reinforcement at least once every minute.

o c . che e r o t r s super

y Children love stickers. Used as reward for task completion, they become extrinsic motivators. Instead use them as a surprise acknowledgement for a job well done. y Most importantly, keep your sense of humour!

Diary Writing

A diary is one way people can write about their experiences in detail, with accuracy and honesty. People of all ages and for all sorts of reasons keep diaries. Some diaries have even been published. Anne Frank’s diary was one of those. Anne and her family hid in an attic during World War II to escape capture from the Germans. While she was in hiding, she kept a diary of her experiences. It was published after the war had ended. Other diaries have been written to entertain us. The Adrian Mole diaries written by Sue Townsend are a humorous fictional account of a boy growing up in England.

Water and food is running low and you’re becoming concerned about if, or when, you are going to be rescued. Write a three-day account of your experience, e.g. What happened during the storm? How are you feeling? What is the weather like now? Do you hold much hope of being rescued? Who are you thinking about? What are you doing for food and water?

Where Do Ideas Come From?

Ideas for stories come from all sorts of places. We can use our senses such as sight, sound, smell and touch to help formulate ideas. Stories must contain a problem or a conflict to be interesting enough for people to want to read it.

Here are some titles for stories. Write down the outline for an original story.

Telephone Talk

The telephone is still the most popular form of long distance communication. It’s relatively cheap and easy to use. Phones that plug into a wall socket are called landline phones. Nearly every home and office has a landline phone. In recent times, people have been buying mobile telephones. Mobile phones do not need to be plugged in and can be carried around with you. Owning a mobile makes it even easier for people to contact you wherever you are, at any time.

B) People use the phone for all sorts of reasons. We can think of these in four main groups: business (e.g. buying and selling things), social (e.g. organising a movie with friends), work (e.g. phoning the office) and home (e.g. saying you will be late getting home). Choose one of the categories and write a telephone conversation for that category.

and took control of many countries in Europe and beyond. One country they invaded and occupied for 300 years was Britain. Let’s examine why the Romans invaded Britain. Britain had a lot to offer Rome and had many things Rome wanted for themselves. Some of these included:

The Roman Empire was growing bigger all the time and they needed more food to feed the Roman armies.

o c . che e r o t r s super

Silver was used to make Roman coins. The Romans knew the Britons had many silver mines. They also used silver for plates and cups.

Wool

Wool from sheep was used to make clothes such as togas and tunics. They also used wool for stuffing mattresses.

Gold

The Romans used gold for jewellery and for money. There was not much gold mined elsewhere in Europe.

Slaves

Slaves were very important to the Roman empire. They were used to help build roads, serve the rich people and were even used to fight as gladiators in arenas.

Lead

The Romans used lead to make water pipes, water tanks and coffins.

Leather

They used leather to make buckets, soldiers’ cloaks and shields.

Roman Invasion 2 Other reasons: The Romans believed they had a special right to invade and civilise other countries. They wanted people everywhere to obey Roman rule and live in peace.

Teac he r

The Romans were a very powerful culture and they wanted to remain that way. They wanted to show other countries they could take over anyone they wanted. One of their best known and most powerful rulers was Julius Caesar. When he was a general in the Roman army, he wanted to show everyone how powerful he was by invading other countries. The more victories he won the more powerful he personally became.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

ew i ev Pr

Many Britons went to help the Gauls (French) fight against the Romans. Caesar was not happy about this and wanted to make them regret helping each other so they would not do it again.

The Romans did many good things for Britain and the other countries they occupied. They built roads, towns, and aqueducts and established law and order in places where there was previously none. They were very clever people. They knew about science and how to live more comfortable lives. Not everyone liked Romans in their country; remember, they were foreigners and did not belong there. How would you feel if your country was invaded and taken over by someone else?

People who follow the teachings of Christ are called Christians. Of course Christianity is not the only religion in the world. Another popular religion is Islam. People who follow the Islamic teachings are called Muslims. In the same way Christians go to church to pray, Muslims go to a mosque. Have you ever seen a mosque?

Outside the mosque is a minaret. The minaret is a tall tower used by the muezzin (the mosque official) to call Muslims to pray. Muslims remove their shoes before they enter the mosque. They cover up so that no skin can been seen on their legs. Women and men are not allowed to pray in the hall at the same time. Muslims wash themselves before praying. There are no seats in a mosque because they pray to Allah (God) by kneeling on mats. The Qibla is a wall inside the mosque that faces towards Mecca. Mecca is a very special place in Saudi Arabia when Muslims believe Allah was born. Muslims also face towards Mecca when they pray. The leader of the service delivering the sermon (talking about God) is an Imam. He talks from a special platform called the minbar.

The Olympic Games

What is the biggest sporting event in the world? You shouldn’t be surprised to know it’s the Olympic Games. The 2000 Sydney Olympics attracted 10,200 athletes from 200 different countries. They were watched by an incredible 3.5 billion people over the two weeks of the games. However, the Olympics were not always this big.

The origins of the Olympic Games can be traced back 2500 years to Ancient Greece. In those days, people participated in different sports such as chariot racing, so these events were included at the games. The games also included many sports people still play today such as running, wrestling, pentathlon and horse riding. Eventually, the games were outlawed.

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

However, not everyone forgot about them. The Modern Olympics were born when Frenchman Pierre de Coubertin persuaded countries to compete against each other. The first Modern Olympic Games were held in Athens, Greece in 1896. Although only twelve countries and 200 athletes attended, it was regarded as a great success.

Since then, many countries have hosted the Olympic Games, including England, Russia, Korea, Japan, Greece, Spain, Germany, United States and most recently, Australia. The Sydney Olympics were so successful the chairman of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Mr Juan Antonio Samaranch, declared them the most successful ever. Australia is among only three countries to have competed in every modern Olympics. The other two countries are Greece and France.

Š ReadyEdPubl i cat i ons Australia has produced many sports champions, including Aboriginal running star• • f o r r e v i e w p u r p o s e s o n l y Cathy Freeman, who won gold in the women’s 400 metres. One of the most

m . u

successful Olympians ever is British rower Steven Redgrave who has been to four Olympic Games and has won a gold medal every time. He retired after the Sydney Olympics.

w ww

Staging the games can be expensive. For example, the Sydney Olympics cost $2.6 billion. This means many smaller and poorer counties will never be able to hold the games because they won’t be able to afford to pay for them. Even the richer countries that stage the games usually lose many millions of dollars.

To help pay for the games, the organisers sell the television rights to countries around the world. They also charge people to watch events and sell the right to use the Olympic logo on products such as T-shirts and caps. Large companies will also give the Olympics money in return for a ‘naming right’. This means the company is allowed to say they are an official sponsor of the games. They are hoping that this will attract many new customers to their business. The government will also contribute money. However, when the games were held in Atlanta in the United States, the government said they would not pay anything, so all the money needed was raised through corporate and private sponsors. The last summer Olympics were held in Athens, Greece in 2004. Athens was the birthplace of the Olympic Games and so these games took on a special importance.

Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh is one of the most famous artists in the world. However, when he died in 1890, he was destitute and had sold only one painting in his entire life. Why wasn’t he more popular when he was alive? Vincent Van Gogh was born in Holland on the 30th March, 1853. Before becoming an artist, he worked in a bookstore, then an English school, and later he became a preacher working with the poor in Belgium. Van Gogh cared a lot about the poor and working class people and often used them as subjects in his paintings.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

Teac he r

ew i ev Pr

It wasn’t until 1880 that he decided to become an artist. He was mostly self-taught but was influenced by painters like Millet and Ruben. He was also influenced by Japanese prints. In 1886, he joined his brother Theo in Paris. Theo was an art dealer and provided Van Gogh with financial and emotional support. The brothers were very close and constantly wrote to each other. Van Gogh wrote over 750 letters to his brother and often talked about his paintings. However, he also talked about his troubled thoughts and feelings. Van Gogh worked under immense strain and was emotionally unstable. Later that year, Van Gogh became insane and was admitted into a clinic for help. During one of his fits, he tragically cut off part of his own ear. Even during his mental illness, he kept on working. In fact, during the last three years of his life he produced some of his best and most famous work. In the last 70 days of his life, he completed an amazing 70 paintings - that’s one a day! When he died, he left a huge collection of over 800 paintings and 800 sketches. Some of his most famous paintings include; Self Portrait (1887), Sunflowers (1888), Irises (1889), The Bedroom (1889), and Self-Portait With Bandaged Ear (1889).

Van Gogh had trouble selling his paintings when he was alive because, at the time, his style of painting was not well known or popular. He had a very special way of painting. He wanted his work to reflect his inner feelings and he wanted others to feel the same way. He liked painting in dots and strokes of pure colour. He used colour to express what he felt and wasn’t afraid to distort shapes to show this. Painters at the time were more interested in getting the pictures looking right, much like photographs.

o c . che e r o t r s super

Van Gogh died in 1890 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and Theo died just six months later. After Van Gogh’s death, his popularity quickly rose. His paintings have since influenced many artists and a new style of painting emerged called “Expressionism”. His work is still highly sought after and private collectors have bought many of his paintings. Thankfully, government owned museums such as the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam have many of his paintings. These museums are open to the general public so all can experience the brilliance of his work. Vincent Van Gogh remains one of the most important and respected artists of our time. Some people even believe he was a genius. Whatever your opinion, it’s a great shame that such an immensely gifted person led a lonely and tortured life. Despite his own troubles, his paintings have bought enormous joy to millions of people around the world.

P.E. Games To Play 1

Here are some very popular and easy-to-follow games to play. Games are enjoyed most when the rules are understood and enforced fairly.

Doctor Dodge Equipment As many soft balls as possible. Large playing area such as netball court.

r o e t s Bo r e p ok u S

ew i ev Pr

Same rules as normal dodge apply. These include: Ball must strike opponent below the shoulders. The balls should not be kicked. If the ball is fumbled, the player is out. Play must take place inside the marked boundaries. Players are allowed to handle only one ball at a time. If the ball is caught on the full, the player who threw it is out. If a team member is struck by a ball, instead of being removed from the game as in normal dodge, they sit down on the spot where they were hit. Each team secretly appoints a ‘doctor’, who has the power to bring them back to life by touching the hit player. However, if the doctor himself is hit, then he/she exits the game and there is no longer any doctor to heal people. If a player is hit, then they automatically remove themselves from the game. The doctor can play the game as a normal player and catch and throw the ball, but this is not encouraged as the game will most likely be lost if they are hit. The doctor is permitted one bodyguard as protection. Swap ends at the conclusion of each game
