Apostrophes! Why do so many of us get them wrong?<br />
In Year 2 children are expected to use contractions accurately, and in Year 4 they are expected to understand possessive apostrophes as well.<br />
This extended lesson on apostrophes is suitable for Years 4, 5 and 6. It would also be an ideal revision tool for the Year 6 Grammar Test.<br />
First, children are given the chance to revisit prior learning through the fun warm up game 'The Memory Test'.<br />
Following that, they will learn about possessive apostrophes and common misconceptions during the presentation.<br />
When they are ready, the two player game 'Apostrophe Abduction' will provide them with plenty of challenge.<br />

This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book - Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny - can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.
First of two scenario exam question papers based on Ben the Gymnast, complete with mark scheme. Great way to develop exam technique and explore possible questions for the 2015 exam, created myself as an experienced examiner.<br />
Questions worth a total of 40 marks and are excellent preparation for the examination - suggested use as a formative lesson assessment resource, homework task, revision framework or controlled assessment. Answer sheet allows for peer/self/teacher assessment.<br />
All material within this resource has been created by myself as an experienced examiner. Last year pupils averaged 1.9 and 2.3 out of 8 on the two 8 mark exam questions. This aid has offered valuable support to my own teaching group.<br />
It is worth noting that I successfully anticipated all the questions linked to the scenario on the 2015 exam paper so it is worth keeping an eye open for my resources in the future!

Report writing, art and design, comment bank, KS3 and KS4, introduction, knowledge, attainment, communication, targets, final.
Please note: I've not written any of these comments myself, but just put everything I found on the net together! I hope it's as useful for you as it was for me!
Comments I have collected over the years all in one place.
I cannot take credit for them at all - they are just ones I have found on the internet and copied onto a word document.
Very helpful when writing reports!
This extensive resource provides 15 pages full of comments suitable for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5 Art student reports. Comments cover the full range of abilities and are fully editable.
