I have put this together for a low ability Yr 10 class as a preparation lesson for their CA. This will hopefully help them produce a practise paragraph. It is quite basic - any comments/suggestions for improvement would be greatly appreciated!
This was created for a LAT group of Y10 students who responded really well to the solo taxonomy used to structure their success criteria. They grasped the significance of quantity and quality fairly quickly. The solo sheet was stuck into books and they recorded each step independently. We now use the symbols as the idea behind them is firmly embedded.
Please comment on this resource if you find it useful! (It was graded as outstanding on the 9 point framework)
A really simple resource which could be used for a homework. Students asked to collect key quotes on each character in Act 1. I have only used a few speech bubbles around each character in order to get students evaluating quotes. Which are the most important? Which could they easily remember in an exam situation? Could easily be adapted for other acts.

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.</p>
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. <br />
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.

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'.
