GCSE English Language, AQA Spec 8700 Assessment for Paper 1 Question 5, Creative Writing.

GCSE English Language, AQA Spec 8700 Assessment for Paper 1 Question 5, Creative Writing.

A full 4 page progress assessment for Paper 1 Question 5. As controlled assessments are no longer in use with this specification I found it useful to have regular bite-sized assessments to track a learners journey and progress whilst on the GCSE course. These assessments are based on each question from the AQA exam paper and mirrors the phrasing and tasks that students will find in the real exam. It comes with planning scaffolds to help students structure and organise their ideas. It is a great way to prepare students and highlight areas of weakness and strength. Hope it helps.

Year 5 and 6 Grammar and punctuation pack

Year 5 and 6 Grammar and punctuation pack

I have bundled together lots of my most useful SPAG resources I use with year 6. It includes: word mats, posters, word banks, work sheets and grids. The resources cover a range of things including: adverbs, hyphens, active/passive voice, modal verbs, sentence types and more. The resources are child friendly and easy to use. Individually it would cost £15.49 to buy all these resources. I am selling them for less than half the price as a bundle to wish you all a happy start to the new school year. Enjoy

Adverb A-Z word mat, list Ks2

A useful A-Z list of adverbs- can be laminated and given out or displayed. Includes space to write some of your own words. Also includes some non 'ly' words, as lots of children just think adverbs end in ly. I use this successfully with years 5 and 6.

Great Fire Of London Story

Great Fire Of London Story

The story that I have written is aimed at UKS1 (though older children would still find it interesting) and I have based it on a character called Willow Goodchild. Willow likes school and has great friends but he has a tendency to daydream. His daydreams take him and his friends to different periods in history/different areas of the globe depending on the topic his teacher is talking about. The story attached is based on ‘The Great Fire of London’. My idea is that each story in the series follows a particular pattern: Willow’s teacher asks him a question that he partially hears as he slips into a daydream, he and his friends explore and learn about a certain topic, Willow slips back into reality and astounds his teacher with a detailed answer of his question. I have experienced this phenomenon first-hand many times in class and have always wondered how children answer questions with such detail, even though I thought they were daydreaming! Hopefully this story will unlock the mystery! In my own daydream, other stories might include: ‘Willow and The Romans’, ‘Willow and The Greeks’, ‘Willow and The Great Volcano’, ‘Willow and the Kings’, ‘Willow and the Space Race’. The possibilities for this resource are vast and could include: English-Children to write themselves into certain daydream scenarios in history, write a diary entry, write an alternative ending etc. Art-drawing accompanying illustrations to the page, illustrating characters etc. History-Researching the events on each page (possible group activity), researching the aftermath of the fire, how London recovered etc. Geography-Map work or Google Earth locating the area of London. PSHE-Describing the feeling of the baker, the people of London etc. P4C-How should the baker be treated by Londoners? Talk about forgiveness. Technology-Design and make a new safer bakery to replace the Pudding Lane bakery. Any feedback and comments would be most welcomed.
