Four detailed and comprehensive sentence builders to enable students to accurately speak and write, in depth, about their relationships. Tested and re-tested and upated for maximum useability. Students can talk about who they get along with and why, and also who they don’t get along with. Language is carefully selected to be high frequency and idiomatic. Students have loved having the tools to describe “the best/worst person in the world” in a natural, idiomatic and creative way - making this one of the favourite topics learnt, two years running.
Used as the basis for a Extensive Processing Instruction (Conti methodology) sequence of lessons. Highly checked for accuracy and useability. Language is ambitious, but presented simply, clearly and logically so as to minimise cognitive overload, therefore useable with and perfect for differentiating for learners of all abilities - either for top/lower sets, or mixed ability groups. Heavily tested in class and revised/improved over the last two years. Has previously worked particularly well with our Y9 sets but is perfectly suitable for all of KS3. Sentence Builders can be easily edited if you want to reduce the difficulty for younger groups. Feedback welcome.
