A simple checklist that is easy for pupils to use. Includes the key features that should be included within an discussion text for children to refer back to during independent writing to self-assess/ for teachers to then use to assess against afterwards.
Here I have provided a discussion text and story map to go with it for the discussion- Should trolls be allowed to roam freely in England? \n\nI will use the Harry Potter clip of a troll to bring the idea to life and end the week by having a debate about the topic
Three writing frames to assist pupils in planning their writing.
The Matilda and Oliver frames could easily be adapted and edited to compare two other books. There are two sheets - one for alike and one for different.
There are two sheets for the computer games writing to allow for different abilities.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.

This SATS style reading comprehension booklet is designed to give your children additional experience in tackling New Curriculum SATS style texts and questions. <br />
It offers both fiction and non-fiction texts and is based around the topic of frogs.<br />
Although designed for Year 2 children, the booklet has also been successfully trialled with Year 3 children and so should serve as a highly useful resource for both year groups.
