Achieving, creating, building Greater depth in persuasive writing KS2 Year 3, 4, 5

This resource structures persuasive writing for your whole class. In the past I have used this a whole lesson and written each sentence as a class to really create an in depth piece of writing. I would ask the children for their ideas and they would collaboratively come up with ideas and then write down after sharing them with whole class. I have also cut the sentence strips out and allowed my higher attaining pupils to play around with the structure. This resource allows the lowers a structure to follow and the opportunity to write without worrying about content and structure. I hope that you enjoy using this resource and that your children’s writing is wonderful! Many thanks

10-minute activities aimed for ESL-students

Having worked for 4 years as a qualified teacher in Denmark, I developed a bundle of icebreakers for English language learners. Improving another language ought to be spiced with fun and engaging activities. I usually use one of my speedtivities (which I’ve named them) in the beginning of the lesson to help them transfer the students’ language. Especially, “Team up and compete” , “The boom game” and “My favourite recipe” help in that regard. Please do pop a review, if you choose to download this resource. You’re also more than welcome to purchase one of my other resources to a reasonable price.

Templates for Marking Spellings by their Syllables

Templates for Marking Spellings by their Syllables

Ten spellings may consist of thirty syllables and it is much more rewarding to gain 15/30 than 1/10. Not only is this great to boost confidence but students soon appreciate the value of learning their prefixes and suffixes. Students can see the same mistakes in different words. Syllables are small manageable chunks to learn, once learned they are transferable into hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of words. These are large font to make laminated dry wipes. Alternatively I print two pages onto A4 landscape, to go into the Lexicology A5 workbooks.
