Roald Dahl (Roald Dahl Day)

FREE to new buyers: enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. A giant crossword puzzle designed to be completed in groups, featuring 111 quiz-style clues related to almost all Roald Dahl's children's stories and poetry books and a few related to the writer's life. Ideal for Roald Dahl Day on September 13th, World Book Day (WBD), end or start of term fun, at the end of a Roald Dahl focus / topic or just as a Roald Dahl celebration because almost all children love this author and his quirky characters! Why not use it as an early finisher activity, to be completed over several lessons? Suits Key Stage 2 or early KS3 and equivalents. Collaborative completion works especially well as it will spark off informal reading chats as children compete against other groups to finish it, pooling knowledge of this popular children's author's texts - his stories, poems and works of autobiography. Children could research any questions they do not know. In addition to the Solution, I have also included an Answer Sheet with the answers listed in alphabetical order to give out for differentiation or when pupils have done as much as they can. You could print the crossword in A3 but it works fine in A4 too. I hope your pupils enjoy this. If you can spare a moment I would be grateful for a review. Many thanks. Books featured are: George's Marvellous Medicine Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator Fantastic Mr Fox Matilda The Witches The BFG The Enormous Crocodile The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me The Twits James and the Giant Peach Danny the Champion of the World Revolting Rhymes Dirty Beasts Esio Trot The Magic Finger The Minpins Boy Going Solo I have other giant crosswords for the same age which you may be interested in - one on children's books in general (Giant Book Crossword) and a French revision basics one.

Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes Poetry Lessons and ActivitiesQuick View

Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes Poetry Lessons and Activities

A set of lessons and activities for KS2 poetry work. These would also be ideal for use around World Poetry Day (21st March 2017). The lessons are based on 'Revolting Rhymes' by Roald Dahl. All lesson resources, differentiated activities and planning are provided as part of the pack. I have used this pack for a week of activities linked to Revolting Rhymes, as well as for a one-off lesson on Poetry Day. It could also be used for a set of guided reading activities. The teaching PowerPoint contains some background and introduction, as well as examples for modelling and discussing each independent task. The PowerPoint and the task sheets are provided in Word and pdf format. There are 5 independent activities, so the pack can be used for a whole week or just for 1 or 2 lessons. Focus can also be on one of the Rhymes or on all six, depending on your requirements. The flexibility of the lessons and the entertaining nature of the text means that I have been able to use this pack in Years 4 to 6, but it can also be easily adapted for younger children. Please note: some video links are included in the sessions, which should always be assessed for suitability prior to use! Also, as is well known, Cinderella is called a 'slut' at one point, so be prepared! Includes: *Teacher PowerPoint presentation *5 independent task sheets for support or structure *Challenge tasks are built into the PowerPoint slides *Full planning grid, linked to English curriculum Please see the Goldtopfox shop for more helpful English and general teaching resources: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/goldtopfox
