Hi there, Here's some of this week's planning for play scripts. It's an often forgotten text type, but is helpful for many reasons. I used this blank iphone template for children to separate who is saying what in a piece of text in order to prep them for writing a play script this week. I hope it works for you! Miss Ritchie

Help your children to improve their descriptions and narratives by using these colour vocabulary sheets in your literacy lessons or on display. They equip pupils with exciting words for ‘red’, ‘blue’, ‘green’ and everything in between! I have been using these colour thesauruses as part of a Writing Toolkit (coming soon!) that I give to my class at the start of the school year. After modelling how to use them in writing, the children then independently use stronger, more effective colour descriptives when describing settings or characters- I even see them cropping up in their speech! BOTH SPELLINGS OF COLOR/COLOUR INCLUDED! Included in this download: A display poster and pocket-sized version of the color vocabulary grid PDF versions of the resources .docx Word versions of the resources for editing purposes 2 fonts to edit your resources with UK/AU/NZ/CA version using ‘colour’ spelling Looking for the full Writing Toolkit? Due to be completed by September 1st 2020 I hope this product saves you time and stress, Happy Teaching! Miss Austin

It’s a week long, and all of the planning, resources, evaluations, examples, success criteria and word banks are provided!

If you’re looking for home-learning projects, here are links to the resources I’ve put together for whilst the children are distance learning and off school.

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

Art & Nature Unit || Week 5 of 6 || Watercolour

Week 5 of 6- A no-prep lesson that explores watercolour, the work of Paul Klee and the art of Hirameki- a Japanese doodle art! Children in years 1-3 will learn how to create a watercolor wash, emulate the work of famous artists and conduct research using internet search engines. This product contains a 26-slide Teaching PowerPoint that guides students through previous weeks’ learning (colour theory, critiquing peers’ work, photography basics) and develops their understanding of watercolours by looking at the work of Paul Klee and the Japanese art form of Hirameki. Children will be introduced to new vocabulary such as wash, saturation, research, tone and pattern. This activity can be conducted as a class, or in smaller wellbeing groups to work on mindfulness or calming SEN children during the chaos of the school day. The focus is on the ability to use watercolour paints in addition to improving digital literacy skills, using QR codes to conduct research on the chosen artist. This lesson is likely to take 2-3 hours, and requires the use of worksheets (included), paintbrushes, watercolor pallets, water pots and pencils for writing. iPads to aid digital research would be beneficial but are not necessary.
