The Flower - A Short Story for English Comprehension or Guided Reading: Year 6+

The Flower - A Short Story for English Comprehension or Guided Reading: Year 6+

This short story - The Flower - was written to appeal to children of Year 6. It is used in guided reading sessions, for developing English comprehension skills and enhancing vocabulary. The material is designed to be challenging but accessible to children working within the government’s expectation for children at the end of Key Stage 2. It is possible that teachers of children in KS3 may find the resources useful. The story comprises two distinct pages with a mini-cliff hanger at the end of the first page. Each page is designed to be used in either i) a single longer discrete lesson or ii) a series of shorter sessions. To accompany each page of the story, a set of example questions and suggested answers is provided. In the author’s school, three half-hour sessions are devoted to each page. In the first session, the children are introduced to the story and some of the questions are answered in a group setting. In the second session, the children answer the remaining questions independently. In the third session, the group reconvenes and the group discusses their answers and receives feedback.

Food Lesson Responsibility Badges

Food Lesson Responsibility Badges

I had a class who found it difficult to organise themselves when it came to tidying up at the end of a practical lesson. I produced these tags which are laminated and then attached to students’ aprons with safety pins. They are arranged into teams with a choice of six responsibilities for each member.
