Some activities I have created for literacy lessons based on What the ladybird heard by Julia Donaldson. Focusing on teaching the word said. Finding it in the passage then using it in sentences by unjumbling cut up sentences.
PowerPoint of What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson (apologies about some of the pictures) along with the shared reading prompts from the Scottish Book Trust.\nI created this as the ladybird was just too hard for a whole class of kids to spot from the picture book!

I collated and designed these originally for a Scottish P6 class with wide range of literacy abilities. NOTE I have re uploaded the file and can see th word doc - hope this helps PB

A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG).

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.
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.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students.
