This focus of this pack is to provide the learners with authentic and relevant purposes for using language. Based on Autumn/Halloween, these resources/activities and suggested learning experiences have been planned to help the learners develop language through writing forms, grammar and structure. This topic provides opportunities to explore various writing forms within a supportive climate.
There are 8 PowerPoint presentations that deal with the topic and provide an introduction to the topic , developing writing activities, as well as assessment. I have included some topic based maths , topic based handwriting as well as a simple art task. This cross curricular approach ensures that children enjoy and engage in inter disciplinary learning.
The presentations include:
Seasons : A simple introduction to place the learning into context
Writing an Autumn Report ( non -chronological report)
A Week in Autumn ( Poetry with a grammar focus)
Halloween - A Revolting Recipe - writing instructions
Halloween Literacy Bundle - variety of language tasks
Autumn Handwriting ( to be used with interactive board for modelling handwriting)
Autumn Maths ( number, handling data and some area activities) with answer slides
There are also some online links provided within the presentations to engage the learners.
This pack will provide a substantial amount of resources for this topic - Autumn/ Halloween as literacy, science, maths and art are woven into the learning experiences.
I have added in several jpg files so teachers can peruse the range of resources that are offered within the pack. The complete pack is contained within the zipped file.
I hope that your learners enjoy the variety of tasks and would be delighted if you provided feedback.

'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest.
It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition.
It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions.
Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation.
Several verse examples are provided for clarity.
Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.
'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs.
I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching.
Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause.
Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
Resources included are as follows:
49 PDF or PPT files for you to print.
