Outstanding Year 1 English lesson on describing the Troll from the Three Billy Goats Gruff. The Troll is missing and the children pretend to be detectives in order to find him.
I have included a detailed lesson plan that is differentiated to suit three abilities. I have also included a speech and language session related to the lesson for a SEN child. IWB is included as well as I can statements and next steps for each ability group. I taught this lesson for a Year One class in May so may need to be adapted according to the general ability of the class. My children loved this lesson and were keen to search for the Troll for the rest of the day! In order to make the 'slime footprints' I simply used play dough and stuck it on to cut out foot prints. You will need to find a police report for the higher ability children as I used Twinkl for my class.
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.

If there are any issues or comments regarding this resource, please let me know. I will respond to any feedback to ensure this resource meets the highest quality.
Connectives display posters, which I find incredibly useful for all year groups, especially during DIRT activities (I get the pupils to 'upgrade' their connectives). Common spelling error display also included in this pack. The third resource is a literacy map which I laminate and leave on the student's desks and I refer to this when we discuss writing up paragraphs etc.
