It's simple really: English grammar can be a very dry subject, but this need not be the case. For a few years now, I have been developing a games-based approach to teaching important grammar concepts. It is amazing how the introduction of dice takes the learning into a new place - the element of chance making it seem less like work and more like play. Because I test my games extensively in the classroom, I get a feel for what works. Dump your boring worksheets and start dicing with grammar.

This is a terrific descriptive writing lesson. Children contrast the inside of a tent (at night) to the outside.

Lesson summary:
1. Vocabulary/simile sorting activities for 'meaning breakdown' and then for inside/outside
2. Release high attaining (AMA) writers to do indoor/outdoor writing independently
3. Shared (teacher led) writing of ‘indoor’ for everyone else
4. Rest of class use word bank (developed during part 1) for independent ‘outdoor’ writing

It would work well from Y2 upwards - I used it in Y3, but I can imagine older writers enjoying this activity.

Children use images and word banks to create wonderfully rich descriptive writing.

You are buying:
a detailed lesson plan and presentation, with inside/outside image
word banks
tasks
suggested shared writing

Enjoy!
