These resources were free to download from the Brighton and Hove site, which has been decomissioned. I know that lots of Year 2 teachers have been looking for these excellent resources and wanted to share them. Please note that Brighton and Hove are the original source. The rest of the resources are in Riddles planning and resources part 2: http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Riddles-planning-and-resources-part-2-6206858/
Planning for pupil progress resource. Improving achievement in Maths: helping children move from level 3 to level 4. A very useful document from the DSCF that is no longer available to download or order. I hope sharing it here will be useful. It identifies where children's weaknesses are and how you can address them to move them on to Level 4.
Have also added a website that has a live version of these resources.
A handy blank map. You can edit the features you wish your pupils to add. I used with the 'Wet and Dry bits' game from Mape to practise the locations and names of the oceans and continents.
Now updated to include Antarctica and working link!
One side shows a selection of high frequency words in alphabetical order, and the other shows reminders of punctuation pyramid, connectives, presenting a sentence, interesting colour adjectives and a selection from the child's targets e.g. read your work through, use commas to pause.
I laminated these mats back to back, and asked children to check through their work and tick with a whiteboard pen before coming to show me they were finished, to try and instil an ethos of checking their work independently.
Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors. <br />
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors. <br />
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy! <br />
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted. <br />
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop. <br />
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource! <br />

This is a five day poetry unit exploring Alfred Lord Tennyson's 'The Kraken'. It has been planned in a lot of detail and is fully resourced. There is detailed guidance all the way through, so if you're in a rush, you can pick it up and use it!<br />
The unit begins with children performing and learning the poem and then moves on to explore the imagery in the poem. Children then begin to use imagery of their own. They work collaboratively, and finally write their own poem.<br />
It is a very enjoyable unit, which inspired some superb writing in my class. It could work with Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6.<br />
Sessions cover these objectives:<br />
1. I can recite one line of a poem from memory.<br />
I can recite whole poem from memory.<br />
I can find meaning within the puzzle of a poem.<br />
2. I can understand wide range of imaginative and ambitious vocabulary.<br />
I use a wide range of imaginative and ambitious vocabulary accurately and precisely.<br />
3. I understand the term imagery.<br />
I can find examples of imagery in poem.<br />
I can suggest reasons why a poet has used certain imagery.<br />
4. I know what the terms metaphor and simile mean.<br />
I can use simile and metaphor (imagery) and magic!<br />
I can play with the order of words to add impact.<br />
5. I can plan my poetry and develop my ideas by ‘magpie-ing’ from other writers and drawing on poems that I am reading.<br />
I hope your class love it and create some incredible poems.
