Lovely Resource. This is a lovely resource which will really aid in my efforts to encourage my year 2 class to be more creative in their language choices. The idea of colour coding the types of words is great and I can definitely see this lending itself to many Big Write sessions. Thanks.
I photocopy each piece of work onto the respective pastel colored paper and tend to have a 'color theme' for the week which means my pencils etc are all the same color!
You'll also need a dice and a pack of crayons. In the first week I get them to use the story mat to write a story using ideas from the things in my story chest (Just random toys and bits of junk like keys etc. I hope this makes sense!) and in successive weeks we go through and underline the words we've done that lesson. I'll use the story mat again to help with the big write (child friendly mark scheme attached).
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
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.

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.
