This set of challenge cards are mathematics based. There are 3 to an A4 page. Each Challenge Card is numbered. Just print, cut to size and laminate and you will have a useful resource to use in a wide variety of ways. The Challenge Cards could be used as a write on wipe off activity or the children could copy them into their books. These Challenge Cards could be used as an early morning activity, for those that finish their work before others, or they could be used for 5 minute time fillers at any time of the day.
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.
22 comprehension style worksheets (1 per book) that I have made based on the Rigby Star Guided Reading books. The children can complete them after or during guided reading. I will add more as I make them. <br />
Books I have covered are:<br />
Rollercoaster, Elvis and the Space Junk, Always Elephant, Clever Chick, The Gizmo's party, The Ice-cream Factory, The Woman Who Fooled the Fairies, Mantu the Elephant, The Monster is Coming, The Gizmo's trip, The Picky Prince, Count on Your Body, Quork attack, Headfirst into the Porride, The Singing Giant, Josie and the puppy, The Ambulance Service, The Perfect Pizza, Rabbit's Surprise Birthday, Peanuts, The King of the Birds and The Cherokee Little People.<br />

Paper 1, Section B; The 19th-Century Novel.<br />
This is a 7 week scheme of work, five lessons a week (35 lessons in total). They are detailed four part lessons with challenge and extension tasks. The scheme includes: a range of tasks; manageable reading; comprehension; analysis of characters, language, structure and narrative method; extensive reference to contextual factors; gathering and analysing quotation and key words; drawing and annotating; fortnightly extended writing tasks in different styles (inform, persuade, argue); weekly SPaG ; a vocabulary/spelling list. There is a discursive essay in week 6 on blame and responsibility and in week 7, students prepare and debate on a current scientific issue (there are many to choose from).<br />
Students will develop their comprehension and analytical skills through an informed reading of the text and appropriate tasks. In this scheme students will:<br />
• Explore aspects of plot, characterisation, events and settings; distinguishing between what is stated explicitly and what is implied; explaining motivation, sequence of events, and the relationship between actions or events<br />
• identify the theme and distinguishing between themes<br />
• Support a point of view by referring to evidence in the text<br />
• Understand the writer’s social, historical and cultural context to inform evaluation<br />
• Evaluate the writer’s choice of vocabulary, grammatical and structural features: analysing and evaluating how language, structure, form and presentation contribute to quality and impact; using linguistic and literary terminology for such evaluation<br />
• Write effectively for a range of purposes such as: to describe, explain, summarise, argue, analyse and evaluate; discussing and maintaining a point of view<br />
• Use accurate Standard English: accurate spelling, punctuation and grammar.<br />
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'.
