Explanation text template - How to operate a UFO

Explanation text template - How to operate a UFO

I read 'Aquila' by Ian Norriss with my Year 5 class and they loved it! While looking at explanation texts, I created these templates for the children to explain how they would operate their very own UFO. The children were very creative and loved this lesson.

Cinderella-the sequel. A play for young English learners

Cinderella-the sequel. A play for young English learners

This is a short play I wrote for an English summer camp concert. It's suitable for learners up to about 12 or 13 years of age. It takes about 7 to 10 minutes. The main aim is to give them a chance to use their English in a fun setting. There are 13 characters in the play but it would be easy to add or remove characters. I've included a Word document for those of you who would like to edit the play for your class or group. My 11- to-13- year-olds loved doing this play, which was easy enough for them to learn in about 4 days. I hope yours enjoy it too!

Toot Hill School Reading Challenge

Toot Hill School Reading Challenge

The Toot Hill Reading Challenge is aimed at 11 - 14 year olds, however, older students would gain greatly from them too. They have been created from Future Classics in the 'free books for school' packs available from Book Trust. The objective of the challenge is to encourage students to read a book from cover to cover, by answering the ten questions that have been put together in chronological order...no trick questions! Students are keen to work through the challenge and have found reluctant readers have completed the quiz too. The incentive of school credits and a prize seems to work. We set them as a monthly challenge to increase the focus of the book. We have also found these challenges help the student to understand what they are reading and it also helps teachers/librarians find out if students are actually reading their books, so can be used as a tester for students.
