Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

This resource structures persuasive writing for your whole class. In the past I have used this a whole lesson and written each sentence as a class to really create an in depth piece of writing. I would ask the children for their ideas and they would collaboratively come up with ideas and then write down after sharing them with whole class. I have also cut the sentence strips out and allowed my higher attaining pupils to play around with the structure. This resource allows the lowers a structure to follow and the opportunity to write without worrying about content and structure. I hope that you enjoy using this resource and that your children’s writing is wonderful! Many thanks

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

Year 2 Homophone Mix and Match Problem Solving

I created this resource as part of a carousel of homophone activities. The children in my class LOVED this; it encouraged problem solving, group work and thinking logically about homophones. I printed the cards onto coloured paper, laminated them and cut them out. Children used whiteboard pens to fill in the missing word. Great fun and is a great way to make homophones fun!!

Focussing on the character of the Nurse from Romeo and Juliet, we look at how she is presented to us as an audience, how she acts as both a plot device and comic relief, and we analyse her use of language as well.

Retrieval questions Multiple choice questions Colouring in Cinderella comprehension with challenge question and sentence to unscramble. For the top two, part of the sentence is in bold which they have to use as sentence starter for their answer to encourage them to answer in full sentences.

Could be acted out in partners too. Not differentiated. Up-leveling Short activity - improving 6 sentences. Differentiated by outcome - children follow the steps to the step they can get to.

Then you add a third, non-related word and children have to come up with a grammatically correct sentence and use their imagination to add write a new sentence this time using all three words. Identifying speech and adding speech marks. In a small group or in partners children read following Cinderella text. They work out together which bits are spoken by the characters, then underline what is spoken.
