I used this with Year 3.
I created this SMART board file for a week of work - focusing on parts of speech and progressing to creative writing.
It includes a crossword testing children on the names of the different parts of speech (nouns, verbs, adjectives etc).
It was for two different classes so it also has a page on speech marks for LA/MA and a page on speech marks for HA.
Finally it has a prompt page for creative writing to describe an adventure on bonfire night, using exciting adjectives and adverbs.
I created this homework when I introduced adverbs to our English Top Set Year 3 children. They have to choose appropriate adverbs to complete sentences, then go on to identify different parts of speech within a text taken from the Wind in the Willows.
This script is for four teachers (Our four heads of houses put it together) and comes from the slogan of National Book Week - 'Tuck into a Book!'. It encourages children to see what different kinds of books are available to read and encourages them to try something new and get stuck into reading.
Here is the script and corresponding Powerpoint for our Word Religion Day assembly. It was a Year 3 class that did this but it could also be used for a Year 4 class. We only had 19 children so you'd need to split some of the speaking parts if you wanted all children to speak.
We sang 'The World in Union' afterwards.
Children loved making pizzas at our Italian pizza class. Resources have been exported from an Activ-primary flip-chart. (Which also includes Italian Pizzeria style music.) Fun to play when the children are making their pizzas or working. If you would like original please message me.

These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
