Suspense Writing: Full Writing Scheme of Work

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.

Word types. Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. Back to the future themed lesson. Creative writing

A refresh lesson lesson packed full of moving images to get your class excited! This presentation gives a refresh on nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. It uses both still images and moving images to give children the opportunity to say what they see. I.e. Pictures of Marty and the Doc are nouns. Then the presentation displays a short clip from the movie. Here children will watch the clip and on their whiteboards they will write one sentence, they will have to identify what types of words they used in their sentence. Now tell children you're taking them back in time to watch Marty McFly in concert. When they come back to the future they will act as reporters and write an account of what they saw. Children will then watch the 'Johnny B Goode' clip from the film and write an article telling people of the performance they witnessed. Great and effective lesson (plus it gets children interested in this great movie!).
