Reading Comprehension

I went on an amazing course all to do with helping children with comprehension. I have put together a Power Point presentation with some activities for children to practice inferencing skills. I have taught this lesson to Year 6 pupils and they got a lot out of it. Ideally, you should follow this activity up by looking at a SAT’s based comprehension paper so that children can consolidate what they learnt from these activities.

Spelling Games

This a collection of spelling games I have sourced from around the web and some I have created myself. I wanted to have them all in one place for ease of use. I print them back to back, laminate and have on my board ready to use. I have found the tic-tac-toe and basketball game to be wonderfully successful, particularly with the boys in my class.
