Missing poster templates for Penguin and the Little Boy .Postcard templates to write home - for Role Play or writing area .T4W (Talk-For-Writing- Pie Corbett) style transcript of the story for children to learn Hope these are useful :)
Stuck is an EXCELLENT book to use in KS1 as a base for a fiction unit, particularly good as a follow up to the Lost & Found series by Oliver Jeffers to cover 'Stories by the same author'. My favourite unit in English by far and the children loved it even more! I have put together some resources because there wasn't much out there on Twinkl etc. I took photos from the book to create a sequencing activity, made powerpoints to introduce adjectives and noun phrases, and writing lists, made my own plan for the children to create their own similar story, shortened the story and re-written it in the form of Pie Corbett's Talk for Writing (T4W) style- (which my children loved to learn and perform with actions! ) as well as creating a themed page with borders for them to use to re-tell the story in independent writing. I hope they are useful :)
From Front Cover, Contents Page, Questions to ask, Life Cycle, Captions, Glossary, Fact Boxes- these pages can be printed for each child to fill out. I taught a different feature each day and then they put together to make own Non-Fiction books to show and share. Can be edited for different theme/subject. Hope these are helpful :)
Penguins make an excellent Non-Fiction unit for KS1- Year 1. We looked at this before a fiction unit based around Oliver Jeffers' 'Lost and Found' story. We learnt all about these fascinating animals in order to write our own non-fiction information books. The children were introduced to this by following some footprints out of class, reading notes /clues left by a mysterious creature- up to the cafe, where they found a lost penguin who needed caring for. They learnt about the animal so that they could create a fact book, ready to hand to the zoo keepers who were going to collect him at the end of the unit. Each resource introduces aspects of non- fiction such as contents page, index, captions etc. and the children create that page of their book in the lesson. We used treasury tags to collate when the whole book was completed and bound with some artwork to make own front covers. We displayed the finished books at the local library and invited parents to come see/read to child. Unit was finished by a visit from the 'zoo keeper' where the children answered ques about the penguin to show what they'd learnt. Handed penguin over and waved goodbye! Favourite unit I ever taught in Year 1! Hope this is useful! :)
Here are a few resources I made for the Traditional Tale, 'The Gingerbread Man'. .Sequencing pictures & worksheets to cut and stick in order .recipe for making gingerbread .Borders and Cut outs

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a great Traditional Tale and here are some resources I made for this English unit - made for KS1-Year 1.

There are speech bubbles to print for children to record dialogue, as well as a Talk-for-Writing )Pie Corbett inspired version of the story for the children to learn. I hope that these are useful to you :)
Teaching the Great Fire of London? I have created a fab pack to teach instructions as part of a week of Non- Fiction writing. Begin by following verbal instructions, or depending on ability- reading them- to make a bakers' hat (linked to Pudding Lane bakery). These can be worn when they make their own bread. Then look at features of instructions by reading lots of different examples for different purposes- add the arrows to each feature as an activity. Then follow instructions (written) to wash hands- and proceed to add Time Openers to the steps/sequence also. These are differentiated with time openers to cut and paste. Sheets to print look burnt and torn because I told them they got ruined with the FIre- task to put back together again! We then let the children bake the bread as a lesson- reading their own sequenced instructions, before as a finale- writing up their own set of instructions for how to bake bread. I also added in (because it was Christmas time) a recipe for mince pies that the children independently followed as an assessment task- to show they can follow/read instructions. Hope this is useful :)

PPT. Poem by Paul Perro- written shortly after the fire. To learn as part of English cross curricular. There is also a Minecraft video clip that appeals to KS1 which also guides you through the streets of London -giving a feel for buildings back then. Tudor House resource shows the children the differences between houses and teaches about how the style contributed to the fire spreading. This is an Art activity where they draw the houses with charcoal/cut and stick. Lots of historical objectives met by sequencing events, comparing now and then- role play masks, small world background and word mats etc also included. Hope this is useful to you :)
Assembly on courage- based around our emergency services. I made it on PPT for use as a whole- school assembly. Suitable for all ages. Includes: slides prompt children to think about... -Naming all services -What is an emergency? (Address hoax calls here) -Prompts for what their role is? -How are they brave/show bravery? -What would we do without them? -Example of a real hero who died protecting us (was in recent news at the time) -List to scroll through showing number of men & women given their lives to help us (not to read but just to make the children understand how many service men/women make this sacrifice & to support the children's understanding of how brave they are) -prayer and candle to say prayers/thoughts for them at the end. Hope this is helpful :)
Suitable for KS1 children learning about animals. Lots of powerpoints to teach about structure of animals, labeling body parts etc. Comparing animals - looking at similarities and differences. This then leads nicely to grouping animals/ classifying into reptile, mammal etc. Activities such as cards to sort and venn diagrams to accompany presentations. Herbivores/Omnivores/ carnivores resources - to teach about what they eat & matching pictures activity. The activities can be used for the lesson and photographed- or to be put in continuous provision/ role play areas. Display posters also included for working walls or role play area.

Beautiful poem called 'Stream Song' - as seen on The Literacy Shed. Available as a fantastic illustrated video on Youtube- a Hungarian poem that the children can listen to and read translated in English. It's full of poetic features such as personification- which are a nice starter activity- for children to find. Then they could make their own up about the landscape etc. Poem has been typed up by myself in order to display clearly on IWB or printed off for children to read. I have attached some worksheets to be used along side the teaching of singular and possessive apostrophes as the poem has some examples used in it. Differentiated- children can think of sentences for the images taken from the poem- in singular or plural forms. For example 'The mountain's peak....' and 'The mountains' peaks...' I also taught While and As clauses- and have included slides to match the poem showing the different sentence structures and use of commas. Pictures from the video have also been made in order for children to write sentences using while and as clauses to match- can be done in pairs or on tables as part of a grammar lesson, or as a warm up. My class thoroughly liked learning a poem from a different country, hearing it read in Hungarian, and then reciting it themselves in English. It is very meaningful about how we travel through life like a stream- building up momentum and size/depth until we become an ocean. Very moving and there's so much more you could do with it! Hope this is useful to you :)
My powerpoint contains many of his most popular paintings (whole urban landscape focus) to be displayed on IWB for children to view and discuss. There is also a worksheet on one slide to be printed off- for them to fill in with features/distinguishing/key aspects of his work (focusing on figures in the landscapes) and opportunity to practice sketching some of his figures. Then there are also some larger images of figures he painted to be printed off for a lesson on simplifying a human figure- dark paint/quick strokes/.focus on shape and position of legs/arms to show movement. A few slides also explain his childhood- where he grew up and what it was like- and early life as an artist/inspiration for painting. Old photographs have been added to teach about the industrial revolution and to see what it would've looked like whilst he was alive and painting. Some slides also show buildings in his paintings compared to the mills there now- to show the impact on the local area. Children then had a go painting in his style- copying off one of his iconic urban scenes/dreary colours/ stick men/mills painted etc. To finish my project (KS1) - my class took photos of their local area- which I printed off- then they painted in the style of Lowry- to include the mills as they are today/ terraced houses left by mill owners- people walking on streets- but showing how it is today! My class truly enjoyed learning about Lowry! :)
