KS1/2: Explanation Texts (2 Weeks!)

Hi there! This is one of my biggest bundles for you guys. In here, there are 8 meticulously planned lessons, with extension work and opportunities to extend the learning over multiple literacy slots. There are 12 separate work sheets, including sorting activities, flash cards for drama, using the example of how chocolate is made. All learning objectives and success criteria are outlined for each individual lesson, and all links for extra resources to be found are on the series plan. Honestly, this has the potential to save you a LOT of work! It can be used for any year in primary, as there are alternative difficulty options, and vocabulary choices that can be altered to make it harder/easier. I hope you enjoy it :) Happy teaching, Miss Ritchie

KS2: Word Class (verb, adverb, noun, pronoun, adjective, determiner, conjunction)

This pack includes 4 activities. The main activity has three tasks that involve classifying words into 1 of 7 categories. This opens up for lots of conversation and debate, which is a great basis for a lesson. The other three activities are mazes where children must get from the top row of the word-table to the the bottom by linking words of that type. I hope this proves helpful! Miss Austin

Hi there! This assembly is 7 pages long and incorporates 22 parts, though there’s enough scope for more narrators to be added in or for children to only have one part as opposed to two. I like my assemblies to be funny, hence the large amount of humour added in! There’s audience participation etc. Any questions, please let me know!
