Being Determined - lesson & worksheet

**Exploring what we know about being determined through sharing of previous experiences and reflecting on strategies used. ** As adults we know too well the importance of being determined towards a goal, and that its only a determined attitude that will keep us going when we hit a tough point in our journey.

Invite children to discuss these questions and to share their strategies and experiences with the group. Worksheet on being determined. For key stage 2.

George's Marvellous Medicine based SPAG activity

George's Marvellous Medicine based SPAG activity

This is an activity to use in a SPAG lesson when reading George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. It is great for nouns as the first part requires the children to match the objects used by George to a picture of the character they most likely belong to. Once the warm up is complete the children will write sentences using possessive apostrophes to explain what ingredients George put into his medicine and who they belonged to. There is a ‘Must, Should, Could’ for differentiation and a LA activity is on the final sheet whereby the children simply fill in the character’s name with the apostrophe on a line within a sentence. You can then get them to copy the sentences into their books if you desire. Example sentence the children could write; George put Mrs Kranky’s lipstick into the pan. The ‘Could’ also encourages children to use and to make their sentences longer. George put Mrs Kranky’s lipstick and powder into the pan.

George's Marvellous Medicine timeline/sequence activity KS1

George's Marvellous Medicine timeline/sequence activity KS1

This is an activity based around George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl. There are 3 pages to the resource. Page one is LA, page 2 MA and page 3 HA. The idea is for the children to put the events of George’s Marvellous Medicine in order, with a link to the times of day taught in Key Stage One. This makes it a reading lesson with a Cross Curricular maths focus, or a maths lesson with a CC reading focus. In a reading lesson it is great for the reading objective; discussing the sequence of events in books and how items of information are related The differentiation is that LA children have 8 cards with events and times on them to put in the right order (cards to be cut up prior to the lesson) using their knowledge of time and of the events from the story to help them. MA children are given 4 events and have to recall 4 others that fall between the given ones and write about them and draw a picture before sequencing all 8 cards. HA children are given the first and the last thing to happen in the story and must recall events from the story to fill in the other 6. Again for MA and HA the cards can be cut up in advance so they have more work to do on the sequencing side. When I taught this I had the children work in pairs and order the cards on cardboard strips. You can prepare more of the blank cards from the HA sheet so that early finishers can add further events from the story, making sure they place them correctly in relation to what they already have on there. This way it becomes a lovely open-ended task that suits a range of abilities.
