KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

This resource uses Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’. Although this resource uses the story of The Christmas Story, the resources and activities can be easily transferred to another story. Planning can also be used as a skeleton plan. Please note that the characters and places remained the same as we used this as our nativity! It is an excellent opportunity to include children that suffer with hearing loss. It includes: • Four weeks of plans - three sessions each week, could be three if you had four or more sessions a week (imitation, adapation and independent application - each with Lower Ability, Middle Ability and Higher Ability objectives). • Powerpoint of using Pie Corbett’s style of retelling (openers, connectives and language all fit in with actions) • Resources for each session - Story mountain activity sheets and IWB resource Never Heard the Word Activity Adjectives activity Labels to stick in Literacy books with objectives and recount of activity for each activity. • Time opener actions

Persuasive Writing Bundle

Persuasive Writing Bundle

This bundle includes 15 lessons based on the genre, “Persuasive Writing”. This pack includes whole lessons that have everything you need to teach the topic and genre. Every lesson has a starter, a plenary, teaching models, group work, criteria for students to use to develop independence and individual writing activities and HW tasks. I have also included a handy FAR inspired assessment sheet that can be used to mark the students’ work using specific criteria that they can learn and use to make very clear progress easily, and there is also a self-assessment activity that draws on FAR marking strategies too. It’s suitable for KS3 and KS4. However, some ppts are more suited to KS4 classes and gifted (or accelerated) KS3 classes. You’ll have to make that decision based on your class’ abilities and skills.
