Did three 40 minute relief classes for year 5 where I read ch 1 of "The Witches" and they then completed the comprehension. The last 10 minutes we then discussed their answers.
Agree with AJFTB - content good but grammar needed correcting.
Thought the definitions very useful.
<p>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.</p>
This resource is in line with the National Curriculum objectives on the value of dictation to children.<br />
The resource comprises:-<br />
- PowerPoint Presentation (1) - contains 10 texts/sentences for dictation.<br />
- PowerPoint Presentation (2) - contains 20 texts for dictation - passages are longer.<br />
- Ready-made worksheets (x3)<br />
- Handwriting sheets<br />
- Audio recording of all the dictation - on the last slide of each Presentation.<br />
- Clear and comprehensive Teacher's Notes on suggested use of this resource.<br />
The learning objectives are outlined - in short the children to write from memory simple sentences dictated by the teacher that include GPCs and common exception words. <br />
This gives the children the opportunity to practise their spelling.<br />
You can use this resource in focus groups or whole class teaching.<br />
The texts are numbered but you do not have to follow the number order. You can pick and choose any text to suit the level of your class or group.<br />
Briefly, in the teacher's notes, you print of the text to read aloud or play the audio. After the dictation, the children can correct each other's work by referring to the text on the PowerPoint Slide, and then copy the corrected piece of writing into their literacy books in their best handwriting.<br />
Punctuations dictated are: full stops, commas in a list, question marks and exclamation marks. Speech marks/inverted commas are also used in two of the texts for the higher Keystage children.<br />
