This topic will also educate and inform the children of a very current real problem that others in the world face - the plight of the refugee. Using this book will expand their understanding of the world and help them to empathise and appreciate what some of the other children in school may have gone through.

AQA English Language Paper 2 Deconstruction: The Crossing vs. Idle Days in Patagonia

This resource was designed to be used after a class or cohort have sat the 2019 English Language paper 2. It’s set up to be used after a class has sat the exam and had their papers marked, but it wouldn’t take much modification to be used as part of a scenario where the students get the material, execute a preparatory strategy, answer the question and then peer/self mark. The material from the AQA mark scheme has been integrated into the PowerPoint, so students can get a sense of what level their response is before fine marking. I’ve done a few in this style and the students value them as revision tools too.

Fun Writing Project Year 6 Catch Up and Revision - Journey by Aaron Becker KS2

(4)
A great writing project to allow children to learn GPS while writing a wonderful story. Great for catch up and will last weeks. You don’t need the book as the PPT has it all. 30 slides (to accompany the book Journey). Each slide has a different focus. A step by step approach that introduces all aspects of the writing assessment criteria including: • creating atmosphere, and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action • using a range of cohesive devices, including adverbials, within and across sentences and paragraphs sentences and paragraphs • using passive and modal verbs mostly appropriately • using a wide range of clause structures, sometimes varying their position within the sentence • using adverbs, preposition phrases and expanded noun phrases effectively to add detail, qualification and precision • using mostly correctly: inverted commas commas for clarity punctuation for parenthesis • making some correct use of: semi-colons dashes colons hyphens • semi-colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses • colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses This was a real labour of love. Enjoy.

(Update 1/4/2021 - I have received a number of requests to include the SMART Notebook screens in an alternate format. Therefore I have also included a 219 page Powerpoint that includes all of the SMART Notebook screens. There are more screens as Powerpoint is not as interactive as SMART and so this gets around the problem for Powerpoint users.) This sequence includes a varied range of planned activities: Writing a newspaper report Writing an informal letter Writing a discussion text SATs style comprehension questions Writing a narrative Writing and acting out a playscript Writing a set of instructions Writing an information poster Writing a journal entry. It will also provide the children an understanding of mental health issues that arise in the story. This book is very enjoyable with a good story that will get the children thinking about the plot. The activities planned will allow the children to immerse themselves in the story thoroughly and provide opportunities to produce a range of high-quality writing.

Descriptive Story Poetry (3 week unit) based on the book "A River' by Marc Martin

(0)
This is a 3-week unit of work which focuses upon writing a story poem about salmon on their run up stream where they need to avoid bears and eagles. I always teach this during my Raging Rivers unit as it fits so well in this topic. The text driver is a beautifully drawn book called ‘A River’ by Marc Martin. This unit focuses upon the key features of descriptive poetry such as; metaphors, personification, expanded noun phrases powerful adjectives and vivid language. It also exposes the pupils to a variety of different poets looking at their style and how they have used these key features. The end written piece is an opportunity to generate a great piece of writing as there is a well-structured plan to support your less able pupils. My class love this unit as they are engaged by the story of how brave the salmon are though some of the class always choose to write a poem where their salmon does not make it! I have included all the resources including worksheets, WAGOLL and displays so you can start using this straight away. The learning objectives for this unit are; Stimulate & Generate • To find the meaning of words • To organise paragraphs around a theme • To identify specific techniques, e.g. imagery, metaphor, personification, powerful adjectives and repetition • To read and perform a poem Capture, Sift and Sort • To recognise the key features of descriptive poetry • To use figurative language such as metaphor • To use figurative language such as personification • To retrieve and record information from non-fiction • To use vivid language to describe • To write expanded noun phrases Create, Refine and Evaluate • To plan and organise my ideas to effectively support my writing • To revise, edit evaluate and improve my writing x2 lessons • To perform poetry This unit of work uses the 3-stage planning process of: • Stimulate and Generate • Capture, Sift and Sort • Create, Refine and Evaluate Stimulate and Generate = This usually starts with a hook to interest the class where the class realise who they are going to write for so they have a clear purpose and audience. Activities can include reading excellent model texts, drama or researching more about the author or the content of the book. Capture, Sift and Sort = This is the part of the unit where pupils look at key features, practise skills they will need in order to complete the final piece or new learning for objectives they have not learnt yet. Create, Refine and Evaluate = This is where you bring all you have learnt together and plan the final piece before you write it and then edit it to improve the piece. This can include self, peer or teacher led reviewing.
