This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
Bread and butter task sheets. <br />
Each lessons students answer the questions as a starter or plenary to ensure that they continue to remind themselves about the core elements of each of the core units. <br />
Topics include: limestone, atoms, periodic table, alkanes, alkenes, cracking, auxins, hormones, nerves, reflex, energy, energy resources, waves and much more.
I have created this target sheet to be stuck on the inside cover of Year 5/6 children’s English books. All the targets are for the new curriculum 2014. <br />

A few answered questions about the up and coming solar eclipse on Friday 20th march.<br />
All text and images have been put together by me. <br />
The images of the Sun, Earth and Moon are not to scale.<br />
The angle of tilt of the Moon's orbital path is drawn to illustrate the point not accurate to the real movement.<br />
The answers to the questions are my interpretations of fact learnt over the years and cannot therefore be sourced. I am a qualified Physics teacher with 17 years experience of teaching.

This booklet supports a series of lesson and is designed for Entry Level/SEND students to allow them to access the key elements of science. If used in a mixed ability class, these booklets allow students to keep pace with the rest of the class whilst personalising the challenge and support they require. <br />
The booklet is part of a series of booklets with a variety of tasks including matching keywords and definition, scaffolding, extended answers, research and a lot of practical work with matching results tables/graphs.<br />
Some of the diagrams have had to be removed for copyright.
This fantastic, fun, challenging, cross-curricula lesson is packed with learning and has elements of: computing, history, writing and speaking and listening, built into a lesson centred around independent learning and research. Children will be using and applying the historical learning they acquire creatively, as they work through the challenges of the lesson. An optional competitive element, combined with the fun of potentially becoming a Time Detective (and earning a Time Detective badge) create added motivation and increased engagement towards the learning. Children research in a holistic way building up a bigger picture of life the time period and then present their creations providing you with an assessment opportunity and a chance to decide the winners. The lesson ideal for either the beginning, middle or end of a history topic or unit. Can be done in an hour but better over two, contains starter and plenary. Made for KS2 but accessible to more able KS1 and less able KS3
Mathematics assessment rubric for Number, Measure, Geometry and Statistics, covering Year 1 to 6 content of the new National Curriculum 2014.
In my view, levels can still be a useful tool, depending on how they're presented and used.
I use the attached as a guide for parents, and a good 'at-a-glance' document for teachers to conduct holistic summative assessment.
Please rate and leave feedback if you choose to purchase. I'd love to know if they're useful to your students' learning or how to improve the design. Thanks!
