Yr 1 Phonic Fun - Castle Words

Yr 1 Phonic Fun - Castle Words

This fascinating castle picture will lure your emergent readers into sounding out the ten words that describe it. The bright, bold lettering is easy to clear and attractive, and the words are intriguing, yet simple, comprising: old, cold, dark, big, grand, still, spooky, crumbly, stony and webby. Fun and motivating for older readers too; also for younger children to look at. Handy for quick revision, testing and general reading practice. Also supports castle and history studies.

Castle picture, detailed, looking in, up, round... black/white A5 (approx)

Castle picture, detailed, looking in, up, round... black/white A5 (approx)

This picture offers inspiration for creative writing, support for medieval history or castle study and colouring. It depicts an ancient, yet still creepily inhabited, crumbling castle. A mouse (or rat?), a fallen key, a twisty staircase, candlelight, a shadow at the casement window, a narrow passage, lit at the far end, a grand pillar, stone floors - they’re all there. I originally draw the picture to illustrate a castle poem in a book of mine, now out of print.

My Castle + 3 Graded Castle Character Poetry Frames (KS1)

My Castle + 3 Graded Castle Character Poetry Frames (KS1)

This 4-sheet resource comprises a castle picture-poem and 3 graded variations of a castle-characters picture-poem. These are attractive sheets with lively, hand-drawn illustrations of old, cobwebby, crumbling castles, the graded ones featuring characters such as a ghost, king and queen. Children have the fun of writing directly onto the castles - a particularly vivid experience in the ‘My castle is’ activity. Describing words are invited on each sheet. These writing frames are self-explanatory, having starter phrases followed by thick lines for writing, with increasing opportunities for imaginative, expressive input on the graded character sheets. For ‘My castle is’, prompt for describing words such as: old, crumbly, tall, spooky, dark, haunted, spidery, cold, windy, grand, royal, huge, hard, rat-infested, ghostly, scary, massive, golden, fine, splendid, stone, rich, ancient, mysterious, creepy, abandoned, damp, shadowy, candle-lit, and ruined. On the Castle Characters graded sheets, encourage a range of personality attributions for the ghost, king and queen, such as kind, mean, cruel, crazy, gentle, friendly, and various colours. The ghost might be see-through, floaty, spooky or dancing. This is principally a Literacy resource, though it also offers scope for expressive art through colouring, and an intriguing window onto the past.
