Easter Legend (includes a colouring booklet)

Easter Legend (includes a colouring booklet)

The resource includes a 23 slides presentation based on the Easter Rabbit German legend and a colouring booklet. In the presentation Easter is already a religious holiday celebrated by the characters of the story, so this legend can be very useful as an extension to the traditional stories for Easter. The presentation is fully customisable, so is easy to reduce the language level or to add comprehension questions at the end. The legend creates a link between the two main symbols of Easter: the rabbit and the eggs. Enjoy!

Literacy for SEN, Early Years, Primary, Reception, Preschoolers

Literacy for SEN, Early Years, Primary, Reception, Preschoolers

Ideal for NQT a literacy bundle that has a range of worksheets for SEN, Early Years, Reception, Primary and Preschoolers. Includes differentiated worksheets for students who are at the pre-writing stage, up to writing independently. Has 6 Jolly Phonics style worksheets for basic phonics (s,a,t,p,i,n). Includes comprehension from nursery rhymes to commenting on items in photos. With the speaking, listening and writing we ask carers to email or let us know a couple of things that their child did at the weekend, so that we are able to prompt children or get other children to ask appropriate questions. We also check children's listening by asking 'Who went shopping, who visited family, who was ill, who walked the dog, where did they go, what did they buy' etc. before the students write what they did with help, by copying from a white board or working independently.
