Subjects in British schools   

Hi there!


I ´m working with my year 7 pupils on timetables in British schools, and I ´m not sure how to explain some subjects to my pupils.
Could some British people explain to me what "Art and Design" is? How is it different from just Art? 
 I ´m not sure either what Design Technology is? 
And what about "Religious Education" or "Religious Studies"? Does it exist in all school and what is taught to the pupils in this class?
Finally what does "Home Economics" consist in? 
Thank you if you can help me!

How to challenge best achievers?   
Hi dear colleagues,
In every class , there are 2 or 3 students who are really top achievers.Whenever the teacher gives them a task they are the first to finish whereas the other students are still struggling to answer the questions. so  I ´d like to know some challenging activities that I can assign to my best achievers.Can you suggest some activities please ? I was thinking of crossword puzzles. Do you know a website for this type of games? thanks in advance.

I always seat the high achievers beside the  students who struggle.
This seems to work for everyone.
The best students "feel"as though they are contributing to class 
and the struggling students get the help they need.

Hey, Gang --- 
Just a quick question --
I teach in China and I ´m fighting a constant uphill battle to get the word "maybe" out of overuse and misuse.
Do any of you have this problem in other countries? Is this a uniquely China thing? 
I ask because I ´m putting together a PPT activity to try to address this. If this is only a China thing, then I ´ll focus it on China specifically. If it is a problem with learners of other first languages, then I ´ll make it more generic so that it can be used in other countries as well.
Thanks in advance for any input.
Cheers from China ---

So I teach in Japan and although I haven ´t heard maybe being used a lot (mostly because the situation never calls for it) I asked my JTE and she said that the students will use the word whenever they can ´t think of a word that works for them. So I can see this being a useful lesson for my classes.

Night at the movies   
Hi Everyone!
This week has been pretty busy. I have been teaching my young learners about civil rights and equality since it was Martin Luther King Jr. Day this week. Our next lesson will be on "going to the movies and, as always, I have been putting together more activities for them. Some of these activities are for older learners, but many can also be used with Kindy kids. I will probably have them pretend to go to the theater and see a movie with some fun prompt / role play cards as well as fun tickets they can use / collect. Anyway, just thought I would share some of these resources here with the group. Enjoy and have a great week.

Cultural Box Exchange   
Hi, :) I am a teacher in Quebec, Canada, I have 50 students between the ages of 12 and 15 years old, their first language is French and they are learning English as a second language.
I would like to do a cultural box exchange with a class from another country. In the box we include letters in which the students talk about themselves, what they like about their country and what makes their country unique. Also in the box we include souvenir gifts representing our culture like flags, postcards, small food items,stickers, cds.... we send the box at the same time so we receive it at the same time. Then, we communicate by e mail . Please e-mail me if you are interested . :)  roxanne.richard@cshbo.qc.ca
