Everything you need - various technique placemats

Everything you need - various technique placemats

I am pleased to add several placemats with definitions for a series of specific techniques, including general language techniques, narrative techniques, persuasive techniques, poetic techniques, poetic structure techniques, descriptive techniques, fiction and structure techniques, presentational techniques, types of punctuation and sentence types. Pretty much every technique is covered with these placemats! These placemats save me the extra burden of constantly reminding pupils of various techniques. These placemats work really well laminated and left on tables while pupils work in groups, pairs or independently. Ideal for both KS3 and KS4. The placemats are really handy for your KS5 classes!

A lovely, well-presented reading intervention booklet.

A lovely, well-presented reading intervention booklet.

I am pleased to add a well-presented reading intervention booklet. This booklet has a variety of reading skills embedded into it and used a wide variety of small passages/extracts. Students work through the booklet and there is room you you to give immediate feedback. This booklet will save you loads of time having to give underachieving students extra sheets/tasks. I always give these students 10 minutes per-week on the booklet. It has made a big impact. Ideal for KS3 but just as effective if used for KS4 students.

A fun, engaging transition project involving your Year 7s and potential Year 6 pupils

A fun, engaging transition project involving your Year 7s and potential Year 6 pupils

I am pleased to add a fun, engaging but simple transition project involving your Year 7s and Year 6 pupils. Firstly, you will need to teach your Year 7 group about descriptive writing. The descriptive writing task for Year 6 transition pupils will be to describe Little Red Riding Hood’s journey through the forest to her grandma’s cottage. Pupils will imagine they are her and describe their journey. Pupils from Year 6 transition will visit your classroom and do a series of ‘marketplace’ inspiration stations - each will be to do with an element of descriptive writing – vocabulary, simile, metaphor, personification, zooming in on detail etc. When these stations have been visited, Year 6 pupils will sit down and complete the piece of descriptive writing; your Year 7 pupils will then act as ‘teachers’ – walking around and supporting each Year 6 learner. This is a must-have project that will save lots of time and planning and will create fantastic links between your school and feeder schools!

There are extracts from fiction and non-fiction texts that allow pupils access to skills that causing a problem. There are also a variety of quotations from the play DNA’, the novella ‘A Christmas Carol’ and various poems. The mini lessons are easily differentiated - they are also easily adapted so that they can weekly tasks - simply just change the extracts.

A High Windy Place: A Ghost Story with Reading Comprehension Tasks

A High Windy Place: A Ghost Story with Reading Comprehension Tasks

This original ghost story is for secondary students. It’s taken from my short story collection ‘The Wishing Sisters’. The story proved popular with secondary students in my school and this is why I adapted it as a resource. The story has a supernatural element but it’s not creepy for the Young Adult age group. It is about a chance meeting between Sally, a retired school teacher, and a ghost child who she finds in the cellar of her new home. When Sally decides to help the child, in return he helps her to make an important decision about her own life. The 24-page resource contains: The 8-page story text, pre-reading discussion tasks, a ‘new vocabulary’ master sheet, 30 comprehension questions with answers, 12 plot sequence cards with a master solution sheet, a missing words task with answers, post-reading discussion questions, a creative activity in which students take on the role of journalists and a non-fiction background reading sheet. The resource can be used as part of an English unit about the supernatural, and works either as a class resource or as an extension task for individual students.

Here is a Year 6 homework booklet which covers maths, English, science and thinking skills. I have attached a booklet with all the answers as well. It is suitable for Year 6 just before their SATs but you can use it for a high ability Year 5 class. You can print off the booklet for each student but I prefer to project it on the board because this saves paper.
