A Special Easter Egg - Story-Poem for Children by Josie Whitehead

A Special Easter Egg - Story-Poem for Children by Josie Whitehead

1 Voice recording of "A Special Easter Egg" by author, Josie Whitehead which I'd recommend the children listen to a couple of times at least before reading. They can also hear this poem and hundreds more at home via my website: (Google JOSIE'S POEMS: Listening Page) 2 PDF of "A Special Easter Egg" for use on your class screen. 3 Simple word document with permission to print off for class. 3 - Cover of card (A4) with permission to print for class use only 4 - Inside of card (print on back) - with poem and greeting 6 An explanation of IAMBIC FEET - iambic heptameter being the metre I've used for this poem. This poem, with its steady iambic rhythm, is a perfect poem for your children to learn by heart and perform for Easter. As a poet whose work goes out to 188 countries of the world, I'm often invited to skype to schools to meet the children for whom I write, and their teachers. Your visit can be booked via TES or my own website. There is a listening page on my website and I can't recommend enough that perhaps you can spare 5 minutes of the day in which children can just enjoy listening to the poems, and as they asked me to make this page, they would, I know, like to know how to access it themselves to listen to poems at home - - - perhaps with parents and other siblings, and especially at bedtime.

Phonics Planning Guide: Story Wizard Phonics

Phonics Planning Guide: Story Wizard Phonics

Story Wizard Phonics supports children to become young story writers by: using basic shapes to develop fine motor skills and then combining those shapes to form letters (available in both print and cursive) creating ‘word wands’ to trace newly learned phonemes in the air providing guidance for pronunciation including mouth positions and patterns for short and stretched sounds organising phonemes into words (and writing them themselves) discussing the meanings and usage of every word they learn (including exception words) The emphasis is on helping children to understand the shapes, sounds, meanings and usage of the symbols they learn towards becoming word wizards! Every new phoneme is introduced in the context of a word using only phonemes that have been previously taught. This helps children to continuously consolidate their prior learning while also recognising the relationship between sounds, letters and words. Children are encouraged to begin writing sentences with words they have learned and can use these to create their first story book. This planning guide provides an overview of the available resources and how they can be organised across the full academic year including: 14 weeks of expected phonemes (including baseline assessments and monitoring) 12 weeks of consolidation activities (including further monitoring) 10 weeks of advanced phonemes (including additional monitoring) Monitoring and assessment including individual and class tracking Story Wizard Phonics resources are available here.

KS2 Shakespeare 5 day Literacy Unit - Romeo and Juliet

A 5 lesson literacy unit based around Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. The unit is aimed at year 3 and 4 and gives details of the curriculum objectives covered.
