Nice checklist, thanks. It could be argued that "photo's" could legitimately have an apostrophe as a contraction of photographs...
...Simonlloyd5, I'm assuming your use of apostrophe's is tongue in cheek?
Throughout Key Stage 2, children are expected to take part in debates and compose one-sided arguments or balanced discussions.<br />
To be successful at this, children need plenty of opportunities to use the language of argument. Connecting phrases such as 'it is obvious that', 'other people claim that' and 'opponents of' need to be orally rehearsed as children do not encounter them regularly in their daily lives.<br />
This fully planned session, complete with a presentation and a fun dice game, will give children the experience of using the language of argument in a purposeful way.<br />
Use this session prior to any 'argument' style writing and it will give children the tools to be successful. <br />
*I have now added 'Whose side are you on? Advanced'. This version is for 4 players and enables children to create full balanced discussions orally. The patterns they use exactly mirror the structure of a written balanced discussion.

This set of resources includes an interactive resource. Click the weblink to the right of this page to launch it. This TESiboard ( http://tesiboard.co.uk ) resource is one of a series of Persuasive Leaflet Writers. This version contains images and text to support writing about citizenship. While the information covers a range of sub-themes we suggest that pupils focus on one small area and then pick out the relevant information to add to research from other sources. This resource should be used in the context of a wider topic on the features of persuasive writing. See the 'How To' doc for guidance on using this resource.

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.
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.
