A re-telling of the traditional tale.
'One day, the farmer planted a turnip seed...The sun shone and the rain fell, and under the ground the little seed began to grow...It grew...and it grew...and it GREW!'
Beautifully illustrated storybooks of the traditional folk tale.<br />
Our retelling is pitched at two reading levels, for differentiation purposes: the Early Reader is simply-written, for emerging readers; Level A has longer, slightly more detailed text.<br />
The PDF versions use Sassoon Infant font.<br />
This story is ideal as part of a PSHE friendship / teamwork theme or harvest topic. <br />

<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'.
This resource is in line with the National Curriculum objectives on the value of dictation to children.<br />
The resource comprises:-<br />
- PowerPoint Presentation (1) - contains 10 sentences for dictation.<br />
- PowerPoint Presentation (2) - contains 20 texts for dictation - passages are longer.<br />
- Ready-made worksheets (x3)<br />
- Handwriting sheets<br />

- Clear and comprehensive Teacher's Notes on suggested use of this resource.<br />
The learning objectives are outlined - in short the children to write from memory simple sentences dictated by the teacher that include GPCs and common exception words. <br />
This activity gives the children the opportunity to practise their spelling.<br />
You can use this resource in focus groups or whole class teaching.<br />
The texts are numbered but you do not have to follow the number order. You can pick and choose any text to suit the level of your class or group.<br />
As suggested in the teacher's notes, you print of the text to read aloud or play the audio. After the dictation, the children can correct each other's work by referring to the text on the PowerPoint Slide, and then copy the corrected piece of writing into their literacy books in their best handwriting.<br />
Punctuations dictated are: full stops, commas in a list, question marks and exclamation marks. Speech marks/inverted commas are also used in two of the texts for the higher Keystage children.<br />
