Making Connections - Year 2 Greater Depth ReadingQuick View

Making Connections - Year 2 Greater Depth Reading

This resource is perfect for YR2 teachers, it is a set of activity cards which can be used in any KS1 classroom. The cards have the opportunity for children to make links between books (this could be; characters, settings, events in the story, author, writing style and more). The resource encourages children to be independent and chose their own links between the texts - it may be different to peers or the adults. FOR EXAMPLE: Gruffalo and Little Red Riding Hood link because: Both are set in the forest Both have scary hairy creatures in them Both include someone trying to play a trick/joke Both include a character walking through the woods - the list could go on… This activity is open ended and suitable for all learners, the link will always be correct as long as the children are able to explain and give suitable reasons. The books in these sheets are all KS1 suitable books and some which KS1 children will be familiar with. This includes an example card and a guidance for teacher cards. The activity cards would be excellent evidence for the TAF check in Year 2 as well. SEE LINK TO TAF 2018/19: • make links between the book they are reading and other books they have read.
The Ultimate British Science Week 2023 Quiz- ConnectionsQuick View

The Ultimate British Science Week 2023 Quiz- Connections

5 rounds with 30+ quiz questions combined! Great for those end of term filler lessons and to have a bit of fun with the pupils! Let’s Celebrate British Science Week 2023! To be honest, this resource has taken many more hours than I would have liked as it has taken a lot of brain power and creativity to come up with interesting rounds! ‘Connections’ has been a challenging one! I’ve aimed this for Year 8 but could be used from Year 7-13. • Rounds include: What’s the connection? Each question has 3 mini-questions to answer. The answer to these questions are all around a similar theme. What is the connection between them? • Connect the dots. Points show the outline of some common laboratory equipment. Pupils need to solve the dot-to-dots to find the equipment. • Connections to things. An invention or famous thing is shown but who is connected to it? Pupils need to select a name from the four choices given. • Connections to experiments. Some equipment is shown but what experiment could use all of these pieces? What is the topic connection? • Who’s connected? Famous landmarks/ buildings/ places are shown and pupils need to select who would have worked/ lived here from the four faces shown. Currently in PowerPoint. Should transfer to Google Slides with relative ease. I’ve put a PDF of the team sheet as this tends to give the most hassle during conversations. This resource includes: • PowerPoint with questions and answers • Team answer sheet Any issues or errors please let me know and I’ll rectify ASAP. I don’t own any images or animations in this resource.

ConnectivesQuick View


A collection of words and phrases that will help students to achieve greater coherence when writing paragraphs. Each connective comes with an example of how to use it, along with grammatical information on its form (i.e. word class/ part of speech) and function (i.e. whether it’s an adverbial or if it begins a clause). There is also additional guidance on the difference between ‘movable’ connectives (adverbials such as furthermore) and ‘immovable’ connectives (such as although). The connectives are divided into the following categories: addition: to add information to a previous point comparison: to introduce a point that is similar to the previous one contrast: to introduce a point that is mostly different from the previous point despite one or two similarities concession: to make a counter-argument refutation: to continue with your main argument after making a counter-argument restatement: to make an argument clearer by phrasing it in a different way exemplification: to make an argument clearer by providing an example summary: to simplify information down to the main details frequency: to show how often something happens causality: to imply cause and effect between two pieces of information sequence: to structure information in a sequence
