Understanding passive voice

Understanding passive voice

The resource aims to help pupils to understand passive voice. As a first activity pupils are asked to decide which of two synonymous sentences are passive and which are active. They have to identify the verb and list it for each sentence which gives them the active and the passive form of verbs in a range of tenses. A grammar information sheet summarises the main points. The “Active into passive machine” worksheet with an example and a blank version can be used by pupils to transform active sentences into passive sentences. The worksheets are within the wider context of diaries. This is suitable for: • The whole class • EAL students (advanced stage) • Late arrivals in KS4 • Individual students who need to catch up

KS2: Word Class (verb, adverb, noun, pronoun, adjective, determiner, conjunction)

This pack includes 4 activities. The main activity has three tasks that involve classifying words into 1 of 7 categories. This opens up for lots of conversation and debate, which is a great basis for a lesson. The other three activities are mazes where children must get from the top row of the word-table to the the bottom by linking words of that type. I hope this proves helpful! Miss Austin

Two Bingo Games based on Prefixes and Suffixes.

Two Bingo Games based on Prefixes and Suffixes.

Each game has a Master Copy that gives you the meanings of the affixes. These affixes are based predominantly on the Schwa sound or consonant or vowel digraphs. Each game has eight different bingo cards. Differentiate as required but it is best to elicit the affixes e.g. “Next is a prefix which means life or living things.” If you need to name the affix you could request a spelling or a word that incorporates the affix. This is a great resource to improve: reading, spelling, ambitious vocabulary; use of: parts of speech, prefixes and suffixes. Bingo as a ten minute plenary helps to revisit the set of affixes covered in the Literacy / Lexicology lesson. For more resources visit my website www.lexicologyforreading.co.uk
