Apostrophes! Why do so many of us get them wrong?<br />
In Year 2 children are expected to use contractions accurately, and in Year 4 they are expected to understand possessive apostrophes as well.<br />
This extended lesson on apostrophes is suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. It would also be an ideal revision tool for the Year 6 Grammar Test.<br />
First, children are given the chance to revisit prior learning through the fun warm up game 'The Memory Test'.<br />
Following that, they will learn about possessive apostrophes and common misconceptions during the presentation.<br />
When they are ready, the two player game 'Apostrophe Abduction' will provide them with plenty of challenge.<br />
If you are interested in something that is a different yet meaningful cross-curricula learning experience with elements of: wonder, awe, poetry, philosophy, science, nature, geography, team work, art, appreciation of nature and so much more, then this is for you.<br />
This lesson is called the magical lesson of wonder because that is the desired outcome. A cynic may think that this is just observing nature through microscopes but it is so much more than that in part due to the fascinating web resource used for the lesson.<br />
Suitable for any age or KS (but designed for KS2 or KS1) as the element of wonder and magic is something that never tires.<br />
You will need microscopes or magnifying glass (USB microscopes ideally) and access to objects from nature or a selection you provide. <br />
Turn down the lights, roll down the blinds, play the music and begin the magical lesson of wonder

When schools are thinking about 'British Values', enabling children to understand how England was the first nation to enshrine personal liberty and the power of the law will allow a long view of these now widely held values.<br />
During the game, the children will learn about 13th century agriculture, its inherent difficulties and the ways in which King John’s actions made it even more challenging. They will become involved in the running of their manor and will experience these difficulties firsthand. <br />

July 1 2016 marks the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme and coincides with the Euro 2016 tournament, also in France. Many British footballers volunteered to fight, most famously the men of the Footballers’ Battalion. By combining an important historic anniversary with a major football tournament, we hope to inspire pupils to read and write for enjoyment and to engage them with studying, and enjoying, history.
In this toolkit you will find football and First World War related activities designed for pupils aged seven to 13. These activities can be run in class, in assemblies and in the library and there are also ideas for engaging parents and running your own book groups - plus the opportunity to host your own match day party! During the first three weeks of Euro 2016 we will also be publishing an original children’s story in 16 chapters to be read aloud in schools and homes. www.literacytrust.org.uk/euro-2016
