Create your own castle

Create your own castle

Used in our Y7 scheme of work on the middle ages, this can be easily adapted as a classroom activity or homework. It's one sheet that can be printed off. Students create their own castle and have to think about what it's made of; how strong it will be; where it will be located.

Bonfire Night Guided reading - KS1 - differentiated

Bonfire Night Guided reading - KS1 - differentiated

I created this for a year 1 class with a range of reading abilities as I battled to find suitable reading material to match and wanted children to have non-fiction text relevant to what was being talked about in class. I didn't have too many pictures as wanted the children to focus on a) using other decoding skills and b) listening to each other. Also, they all had prior experience so didn't need too many picture cues as already had contextual cues. To help them build fluency each child's text was in a different colour which I gave them time to read first before we read in a group. The questions and activities were great and I have varied what I have chosen depending on the cohort/LSA Support/previous activities in other weeks. Sometimes I used this before Bonfire night to explain what would happen and sometimes after to understand why things had happened
