Ideal literacy activities for the first week back in a new Key Stage 2 class, particularly Years 4, 5 and 6 (P5 / P6 / P7). Writing, Reading and SPaG activities are included.
CREATIVE WRITING STORY PROMPTS
20 A4 Writing Prompt Cards with a picture, word bank, starter sentence and questions to stimulate a story. Pupils could choose one to spark a full piece, just a paragraph or two or perhaps a description. Dyslexia-friendly font and format used.
40 differentiated Sentence Uplevelling Trails to support pupils in writing more ambitious, complex sentences. Use as worksheets or laminate for regular use. Worked examples of extended sentences included.
FULL STOPS / CAPITAL LETTERS SELF-CHECK SENTENCES CARDS
40 differentiated cards with an unpunctuated paragraph on one side and the corrections on the other. This resource supports pupils figuring out where sentences begin and end, a skill that often needs significant consolidation after the summer break. It’s a great stepping stone to pupils more independently checking and editing their own writing. Dyslexia-friendly format. Pupils complete on laminated cards or copy paragraphs into jotters.
GIANT BOOK CROSSWORD
Set up a book-loving ethos with your new class with this 100+ clues crossword on children's books, designed for group completion. It includes classics and recent releases right up to 2017. It sparks off lots of lovely informal chats about what pupils have read. Solution is provided, as is a sheet with answers in alphabetical order for support where necessary. If you don't end up using it at the start of term you could always hang on to it for World Book Day (WBD).
For more detailed information and previews please click on the individual resources. I hope this bundle provides you engaging time-saving resources for the first couple of weeks back in school as well as resources that you'll come to time and again throughout the year. If you can spare a moment I would be so grateful for a review on TES. Many thanks.
