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 texts/sentences for dictation.<br />
- PowerPoint Presentation (2) - contains 20 texts for dictation - passages are longer.<br />
- Ready-made worksheets (x3)<br />
- Handwriting sheets<br />
- Audio recording of all the dictation - on the last slide of each Presentation.<br />

This gives the children the opportunity to practise their spelling.<br />
You can use this resource in focus groups or whole class teaching.<br />

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 />
