Thanks for sharing. I'm guessing the whole thing uses US English, as it also contains the word 'program'. I did change 'brought' to 'took'. However, I don't agree with the comment about the lions' cage. Any Y6 (non-ASD) child who gets anxious about the number of lions in the cage is going to have a tough time working on their own initiative in Y7. If they know there's a choice, great!
From 2017, Y6 will have their tables formally tested using an on-screen check, where their answers will be marked instantly. This tool is ideal to prepare pupils for this from KS1 upwards!
This is an on-screen self marking activity for whole school use, including:-
-4 short differentiated tests. TEST A ( X 2,3,5) TEST B (X 4,6,10) TEST C (X 7,8,9) TEST D (X 11,12)
-A huge 100 question times table challenge
and all are self marking with unlimited questions for times tables!
The pack also includes a printable worksheet/ test sheet generator for repeated practice.
The answers will turn green when correct for immediate feedback and you can generate a new set of questions with one click. (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time - see instruction page.)
Put on your school network for pupils to work on in the ICT room or use a class starter or print out multiple worksheets for practice.
This is ideal to use over time to build up confidence and help fluency, and to prepare for the on screen tests from 2017.
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- read only version as then the worksheet will appear blank for each use. Just select yes when prompted to open as read only)

A new statutory test of English grammar, punctuation and spelling will be introduced for children at the end of Key Stage 2 from May 2013. This implements an important recommendation of Lord Bew’s independent review that writing composition should be subject to teacher assessment only, with the more 'technical' aspects of English - such as punctuation and spelling - assessed via an externally marked test.
This is a useful assessment tool for 2015 in the lead to the new Grammar testing in KS1. All questions have been taken from Testbase and presented in ascending order of mark value. This is also a useful resource for year 3 assessment at the start of the academic year or to moderate progress for the LA learner.

A powerpoint created for use with my year 5 literacy set. It outlines the three types of sentences and explains how to use a subordinate clause in the middle of a main clause. It also include examples at the end for the children to identify the clauses.
A set of sentences for children to add in subordinate clauses. I printed them to A3 and got the children to cut them up and add in a subordinate clause on a coloured piece of paper.
