Spin the top circle to reveal different words ending in ‘ng’ (king/fang/bang/song/wing/ping/ring/sing) How to make: Print both pages and cut out the two circles. Cut the dotted shape in the top circle. Put a split pin through both circles. Note: I’ll be making other word wheels in the next few weeks!

Words for Mother Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Languages Day

Words for Mother Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Languages Day

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Words for Mother’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Discussion Prompt Cards {Thinking Skills}

Discussion Prompt Cards {Thinking Skills}

A set of 28 discussion prompts including debate topics, science/world around us concepts, cause/effect and thinking skills. Colour and black and white versions are included. Full size of cards is A4, however they can be printed smaller. Ideal for printing on card and laminating for long term use within the classroom. Could be used as an early finisher activity, for written response/persuasion tasks or group discussions. I have used these cards with middle primary but could be used in a variety of ways with all year groups.

My Promise to Plants

My Promise to Plants

In this activity, students decide how they would like to help the plants that live around them to survive. Students make a promise that can apply in their home and at school and illustrate these promises. They will create short imaginative and informative texts that show emerging use of appropriate text structure, sentence-level grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation and appropriate multimodal elements, for example illustrations and diagrams. They will represent and communicate observations and ideas in a variety of ways such as oral and written language, drawing and role play.
