Non-fiction Australian Animals Display

Non-fiction Australian Animals Display

As part of the class topic ‘IPC A to B’ in KS1 we studied places near and far. The children created information booklets about the animals that live in Australia and we tried to create their habitat environment influenced by the outback representations through aboriginal artwork. This became the backdrop for the display. Thanks to Sparklebox for the Animal printouts (booklet covers) this display can be easily recreated. To recreate the display… Boarder- Strips of card coloured using wax crayons looking at the aboriginal artist De Young https://deyoung.famsf.org/blog/tags/tags/aboriginal-art MAIN DISPLAY BACKGROUND Cut a large piece of brown, orange or yellow paper.

Fronted adverbials dice game; 'First on the scene'; Race to get the big news story first!

Fronted adverbials dice game; 'First on the scene'; Race to get the big news story first!

Word and PDF versions of everything included! In this fun 'fronted adverbials' game, children are journalists, working for rival newspapers. Bitter rivals! Players want to be the first to the big news stories before their rival scoops them. Only the ‘First on the scene’ will get the story in their paper. The first player to finish their newspaper is the winner! Assessment focus I can use fronted adverbials to say ‘How?’ ‘When?’ ‘Where?’ events happen I know that fronted adverbials come ‘first’ in a sentence Explanation If you’ve been teaching for as long as I have (don’t ask!), you’ll have heard adverbs referred to as ‘roving reporters’. ‘Roving’ because they have more freedom to move around the sentence than other groups of words and ‘reporters’ because they often tell us more about the action and how/when/where it happens. • Slowly, he entered the room. • He slowly entered the room. • He entered the room slowly. Fronted adverbials aren’t ‘roving’ because they always open the sentence. You could think of these words and phrases as reporters (journalists), chasing big news stories and wanting to be ‘first on the scene’ to tell us more about the action as it happens. That’s why I created the game ‘First on the scene’ to encourage young writers to open sentences with adverbials.
