Last Day   - Memories

Last Day - Memories

Children in year 6 are often asked to write something for their final assembly. I have created two sheets. Sheet one should give them ideas about what to write. Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet. Hope these two sheets will inspire the children to write either a piece of prose or to have a go at writing a poem.

POETRY BATTLE (KS3/4/5) A quiz testing poetry skills, terms and creativity. Full lesson.

Made to re-cap poetry terms, structure, and getting the students to think creatively about poetry. I have used this with Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 as poetic terms never change and the students higher up can simply access the creative tasks to a higher level. Students have always been very engaged and have also learned a lot from it. I teach this lesson as a team game. Students are in groups of 4 to work through the rounds and we keep track of points as we go. This takes at least 1 lesson, and could take longer depending on the ability/creativity of your students. Ready to teach.

Imperative Verbs (Cooking)- Instructions

Imperative Verbs (Cooking)- Instructions

This is a fully resourced, fully differentiated and high-quality 9 document lesson that only takes about 5mins of prep time, depending on how fast you are with scissors! It’s based around creating recipes from random ingredients. Students will use imperative verbs to write recipes. I created it for my KS4 SEND class but it would work a treat for primary, early KS3 and EAL learners too. It could quite easily work as a fun transition activity on an open/taster day etc. I tried to make it as visual and fun as possible- Instructions isn’t the most exciting of topics! I used it for an observation and it was graded as Outstanding. You could easily extend it to include writing restaurant reviews or using some drama etc. Included: Lesson Plan - includes WALT, differentiated WILFs, primary national curriculum targets and differentiated ability group information. 3x worksheets (fully differentiated HA, MA and LA) PowerPoint - visual with WALT, WILFs and opportunities for self assessment and challenge. Starter cut-and-stick matching activity, which can then be used as a support sheet for the main task (you could differentiate this further by scrambling the words for HA, etc.) Plenary cards Differentiated food lists for tasks …all you need is some envelopes! Hopefully, it will save you some time planning and mean treating yourself to that glass of wine, extra boxset session or bath. Please take the time to leave some feedback letting me know how it worked for you and if you can suggest any improvements. I’d really appreciate it. N.B. I’ve left it how I use it, really- my class are far too competitive to have red, amber and green groups- they’d figure out who’s top and who’s bottom very quickly and it would cause no end of bother, hence why I have purple, gold and blue groups instead. I hope it’s straightforward!
