Parallelogram and triangle cut and stick activities to link the formula for their areas to the formula for area of a rectangle.
Pupils cut a parallelogram and transform it into a rectangle of dimensions b x h, showing it is the same area as the rectangle
Pupils cut a copy of triangle with base b and height h and arrange the pieces to make a rectangle around the original triangle to show that the rectangle formed has twice the area of the triangle - so the area of a triangle is 0.5 x b x h

<p>A collection of fictional postcards from different places around the world. Each postcard gives some information about the place which can then be followed up with research. A nice activity is to look at lots of examples of postcards and then for pupils to design and make their own.</p>
<p>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.</p>
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
To say THANK YOU to all my TES friends and followers I've created a bunch of $2.00 packets! This one centers on the reading skill of sequencing. This 20+ page packet contains all sorts of graphic organizers aimed at helping your primary students master sequencing the events in a story! I hope you enjoy these graphic organizers as much as my students do. Sequencing is an important skill so these are specifically designed to help ensure mastery of that concept.
