We initially designed these worksheets to be used in 20 minute tutor periods across the whole of KS3 as part of a Literacy drive. However, they could also be used as starters in skills-based lessons; maybe in the build-up to Functional Skills tests? We hope they're useful, either way!
N.B. The &'worksheets&'; can be projected onto whiteboards: printing/photocopying not necessarily required.
A handy worksheet for cover lessons or homework. This sheet can be adapted to suit the literacy focus for the term. It was originally made for First Year in Ireland, but should work for any Key Stage 3 class.
A wall display that glosses the meaning of their/there. A helpful, visual way in which to remember the difference between their and there.
I intend to enlarge the one onto A3 on a yellow background and the other on a green background.
As I've created this in MSWord, you can change the colour of the writing if you so wish - I used 'wordart&'.

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.<br />

A powerpoint created for use with my year 5 literacy set. It outlines the three types of sentences and explains how to use a subordinate clause in the middle of a main clause. It also include examples at the end for the children to identify the clauses.
A set of sentences for children to add in subordinate clauses. I printed them to A3 and got the children to cut them up and add in a subordinate clause on a coloured piece of paper.
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'.
