English / Literacy Recount: Paddington at Christmas (M&S Advert 2017)Quick View

English / Literacy Recount: Paddington at Christmas (M&S Advert 2017)

I made this resource based on the 2017 Marks and Spencer Christmas advert. It features Paddington Bear, who confuses a burglar with Santa Claus. Enthusiastic as ever, Paddington insists on helping the man with his Christmas deliveries, to the dismay of the burglar, who sees his stolen presents being taken off him. Paddington takes his new friend to observe a little girl, Alice, opening her presents, unwittingly showing the burglar the true meaning of Christmas and making him a better person. It's got great graphics to draw in the viewer and a story arc that many children will love, having already enjoyed Paddington stories previously. I wanted to use this advert, not only because Christmas adverts continue to grow in quality and popularity, with children finding them very entertaining and engaging, but also to develop children's writing, focusing in this instant on dialogue and speech verbs. Included is a story plan for children to note their ideas and a Notebook presentation for teaching the lesson. This can easily be adapted to develop a different Literacy skill or to suit a particular year group. Enjoy! And also see other Literacy recount lessons inspired by Christmas adverts in my TES shop!

English / Literacy Recount - Moz the Monster (John Lewis Christmas Advert 2017)

I made this resource based on the 2017 John Lewis Christmas advert. It is about a little boy who struggles to sleep at night, scared that in the dark, a monster lives under his bed. Eventually, the boy becomes friend with the monster, but it continues to affect his sleeping, leaving him tired during the day. For Christmas, he gets a special present to help him sleep well at night, content that his monster friend, Moz, will be sleeping too. It's got great graphics to draw in the viewer and a story arc that many children can relate to. I wanted to use this advert, not only because Christmas adverts continue to grow in quality and popularity, with children finding them very entertaining and engaging, but also to develop children's description, focusing in this instant on character emotions. Included is a story plan for children to note their ideas and a Notebook presentation for teaching the lesson. This can easily be adapted to develop a different Literacy skill or to suit a particular year group. Enjoy! And also see other Literacy recount lessons inspired by Christmas adverts in my TES shop! 13/11/17 - UPDATE to include a direct link to the video in the presentation

Year 6 Recount- Harry Potter Diagon AlleyQuick View

Year 6 Recount- Harry Potter Diagon Alley

This unit of work was designed by two teachers, one a writing moderator and literacy lead, still practising in year 6. Collaborative learning is a key aspect to building the foundations of our work so there are opportunities for mixed ability seating whether you set or not. This unit of work is to designed to push writers towards the expected standard and beyond whilst using Harry Potter and the Philosophers’ Stone. The unit is of a narrative focus in the form of a recount which should give the child an opportunity to describe Diagon Alley in detail and add to that a lot of emotion of Harry’s journey to next seven years of his life. Children are given the opportunity to use a range of elements from the Teacher Assessment Framework. In this piece there is the opportunity to showcase almost all the elements: speech (using dialect for more advanced writers), a range of cohesive devices, opportunities for higher-level punctuation, the use of first person, distinguishing between tone and a range of clause structures. The unit provides a model which can be annotated and amended to suit all abilities. As well as the model, we have created a background which you can write on to add a bit of wow to your writing. Overall this unit gives the user ample opportunities to refine skills, assess writing (self, peer or teacher), draft, edit and up level writing.

Newspaper Recounts

I love teaching newspaper recounts, particularly with an imaginative twist! We spent the first week studying examples of good quality recounts; developing the necessary language and organisational skills and researching a natural disaster, which they then wrote about. The following week, we turned the classroom into a newsroom and wrote recounts on fairy tale characters eg. Goldilocks as a thief! I did it as an observed lesson and we had a great time! It's suitable for Year 5 or Year 6 and could be used to tie in to environmental issues/climate. I've included planning, flipcharts using Activ Inspire and resources.
