This is a whopping 95 page word doc. containing all 30 of my grammar games. This represents a fair few evenings and weekends (I know - get a life!). All of these games have been tested in class and adjusted if needed - they have a real impact on learning.<br />
For each grammar skill there is:<br />
a child friendly explanation of the grammar concept; printable rules and resources for a lively dice game; suggestions to challenge or support learners; suggestions for application of the skill in written work.<br />
For some grammar games there is also a lesson plan and a presentation. <br />
Here are some of the skills covered: <br />
commands, questions and statements/ simple and compound sentences/ adverbs/ proper nouns/ classifying nouns/ contractions/ pronouns/ prepositions/prepositional phrases/ apostrophes/ adjectives/ sentence variety/ parentheses/semi-colons/ discussion/ persuasion/ complex sentences / causal connectives/ fronted adverbials/ speech/ relative clauses/ modal verbs
Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />
*** please message me via TES community if you have any questions regarding technical settings***

This planning is for year 2 focussing on what makes a good set of instructions to being able to write their own set of instructions. Each lesson is linked to objectives in the new national curriculum.
The writing check list is to help the children check that they have included all features.
Planning and full resources for this unit of work.
Some of the resources have been gathered from other places...many my own. The success crtiries were put on under seperate measure a while ago but while I have referred to them in this planning - I thought I would include them within this section also.
Hope it is of some use.
PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK :D
Children loved making pizzas at our Italian pizza class. Resources have been exported from an Activ-primary flip-chart. (Which also includes Italian Pizzeria style music.) Fun to play when the children are making their pizzas or working. If you would like original please message me.

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.
