Analysing Scrooge as a character

Analysing Scrooge as a character

I have attached a PowerPoint explaining how to use the board game, as well as a board game for the characterisation of Scrooge The aim of the board game is to sit the pupils in pair, with one A3 size board game, their A Christmas Carol books, and two dice each. The need to roll the dice once and go along the corridor on their game, then on their second roll they go down the stairs until they land on one square. For example if they land on a square which says 'miserly' they need to find the best quote they can that describes Scrooge as a miser, and write it on their board game. The winner of the game is the team who have the most amount of squares filled in with brilliant quotes. IN the end they will end up with 36 quotes on Scrooge, which can later be used for their Point and their Evidence in their PEE paragraphs. Pupils get very competitive and feel like it's a game, it is a really good way of stretch and challenging your pupils to work independently.

VCOP flashcards for display

VCOP flashcards for display

Easy flashcards that can be used as table mats when printed A5, or as a display that children can access easily. I bluetacked mine so my children could choose the one they wanted take it back to their desk for spelling purposes. I also used whiteboard markers to star certain words especially connectives that i suggested were applicable for that genre. Vocab ones we also had blank ones so children could write their own words to add to the display

Formal letter writing peer assessment and self improvement checklist

Formal letter writing peer assessment and self improvement checklist

I have attached a checklist to give pupils when they are practising their formal letter assessments. It includes SPAG, structure and DAFOREST for content. In addition to this checklist, there is also a peer assessment grid for pupils to stick in after they have completed their letter, they can then swap and mark each other on what they have included.

Pronouns

Pronouns

This resource is made with a Harry Potter theme. Children are introduced to the term pronouns through a short Harry Potter clip where they can hear how badly pronouns are needed in spoken language as well as written. I have made differentiated work resources for the children to use for low ability, middle ability and high abililty- all still based on the Harry Potter Theme. Children are encouraged to work in groups throughout this lesson to try and practice using pronouns on whiteboards, before their activity. Using a Harry Potter theme worked well in my class as it fun, colourful and different from their normal SPAG lessons, which can sometimes be boring. I have included a powerpoint, worsheets and a detailed plan with this package.
