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.

This is a newspaper model I created about a flood. It includes all the vital features of a newspaper report: alliterative headlines; pictures and captions; a brief orientation; reported and direct speech and a clear ending. It also features more sophisticated connectives and high quality openers to cater for your level 4/5 writers. This resource can be used as a vital tool for a S&L session, unpicking the features of a report and as a model for their own writing. Changing the flood for a severe snowstorm worked particularly well. All the proceeds of my resources will be donated to charity via the TES website!
This worksheet is differentiated 5 ways. I used this with a year 4 LA maths group but it is easily tailored to suit your class! There are 20 questions on each sheet and then a further challenge (which is also differentiated).
