Confused words-whole and hole

Confused words-whole and hole

Another resource I made for a pupil who kept confusing these two words. It’s a very simple, unexciting fill-the -gaps exercise to reinforce the difference between whole & hole. It may help another similarly confused child!

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

These checklists provides an academic overview of the writing curriculum content to be covered year-by-year from Year 1-6. I provided these to teachers in my own school, who marked the individual elements of the curriculum as they were covered (their aim was to ‘tick’ each element twice over an academic year). They have found it extremely useful, as it offers a useful breakdown of the curriculum statements into the individual components to be taught, which is not always as self-explanatory as one would assume! It is broken down into Composition, Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling, and Handwriting sections. Please note that the spellings listed are indicative of the patterns to be learnt - it is not the exhaustive list. Furthermore, the composition section details our interpretation of what needs to be covered over a year, some schools vary from this. For this reason, the document is provided in Word, for easy editing. It is also provided as a PDF, to prevent formatting issues between computers. Hope that this proves helpful to you too!

Football Phonics (Phase 3)

Football Phonics (Phase 3)

A set of worksheets combining Phase 3 digraphs and trigraphs with football questions. Pupils read through the sentences, with support if necessary, filling in the missing words with the options at the bottom of the page. Be careful of the red herrings, they can be discounted straight away by eagle-eyed students. Each sound has a page of football-based questions dedicated to it. Great for pupils who love their football, need some extra practice at certain sounds or as a way of introducing new sounds. This could also be done as a quick comprehension exercise or even as homework. I hope your children enjoy!
