Generic assessment levels split into Skill, Tactics and Analysis.\nI have used these over the past term and they have proved extremely effective at helping pupils understand how skills, tactics and analysis are transferred between different sports and activities.
The handbook includes background information for teachers about common spelling patterns, useful strategies, including mnemonics, and spelling and phonic games. Many of the ideas resources have been posted elsewhere - acknowledged at end.
7 sets of cards in JP order. There are decodable words with matching pictures. If you cut them up and laminate them they would be suitable for independent work, for a small group working with an adult, or for your whole class phonics.
<p></p><p>I’ve pulled together various resources such as quick fire activities that I’d previously uploaded separately, and games and links suggested by other posters (notably bluerose) into 1 document.</p><p></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'.
'Who lives here?' PowerPoint introduces a 'conversation' poem about the creatures and habitat of the rainforest. <br />
It provides a structured step by step lesson to support composition. <br />
It also allows reinforcement of parts of speech particularly verbs and prepositions. <br />
Extended poetry task also provided for variety and possible differentiation.<br />
Several verse examples are provided for clarity. <br />
Rainforest booklet is provided for children to write their final draft for display or poetry portfolio.<br />
'Rainforest List Poem' PowerPoint continues with a poetic theme and uses a simple format to motivate composition. This clear, concise and colourful presentation leads the learners step by step through the composition of a list poem based on a 'rainforest' theme. There is a grammar element throughout with an emphasis on nouns, adjectives and 'ing' verbs. <br />
I have found a poetry context an effective way to embed incidental grammar teaching.<br />
Although the outcome is a simple list poem, it can easily be differentiated for older learners. This would involve extending each line using e.g. adverbs or an additional clause. <br />
Children are encouraged to compose an opening line, closing line and' list' lines inbetween.
A set of 3 exemplar essays for the pastoral poetry genre, covering pastoral texts written in the 1300-1800 era and post-1945. These essays were all written by the same student, and marked by an English teacher with 40 years teaching experience and who has marked for the exam board many times. Each essay scored the highest band and marks of between 36 and 38 out of 40, showing an excellent example of covering the Assessment Objectives and writing fluently. <br />
Please note the texts used and marking criteria are specific to the AQA A-Level English Literature course, but the essay writing format and application of knowledge to the texts are an all-round example of good practice.
