A notebook file with links to the Email Santa website which enables children to email Santa and get a pretty much instant reply which can be printed out.
The file supports children by walking through what to do and can be left up for the children to come and see what to do next while doing the activity. A real email address isn't necessary.
<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'.
A game to improve communication skills.<br />
The teacher will split you into two teams. One person from the first team will be selected to sit in front of the whiteboard. They will not be able to see the screen. On the screen a word will pop up, along with an image and clue words. The objective is to get the person to guess the word correctly. Your team has 1 minute to help your team member guess the correct answer. However, you will not be able to say any of the words on the screen (including the title.) You will also not be allowed to do any actions, impressions or stand up...and no shouting. You are not allowed to say things like… “It starts with the letter A.”<br />
It is 3 points for a clean win (with no deductions.) Points will be deducted if team players say the words on the board.<br />
*Suitable for all ages and key stages.<br />
