Assessment grids for writing in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 based on the National Curriculum

These grids are for assessing independent writing in years 1 to 6 based on the National Curriculum (including grammar from the appendix). They have proved very useful in assessing whether children have met age-related expectations as well as increasing staff knowledge of NC objectives and identifying gaps. Please let me know how they fare in your school, including any suggestions for improvements.

All About Ninjas Resource Pack

All About Ninjas Resource Pack

Night of the Ninjas was my very first Magic Tree House book I read when I was student teaching in first grade. I fell in love with the series but it also left me cringing. I always felt bad I could never share any more details and facts about ninjas with my class. Well, now you don't have to breeze through the topic about ninjas anymore! This resource can be used for an enrichment group, whole group, or even in a center. * There are color posters that can be shown (or printed) on a SMART board for whole group instruction. * There are b/w fact cards that are ink friendly and can be tossed into a writing center. * There are journal pages about ninjas and even some opinion writing. * There is a poster where the students can create their own ninjas for hallway displays. @2013 All rights reserved by author.

Stating Your Case for the World's Greatest Sportsperson!

Stating Your Case for the World's Greatest Sportsperson!

In this engaging and interactive lesson, students make the case for who they feel is the greatest sportsperson of all time. Within the lesson they develop skills of: persuasive writing, independent researching, personal and social comprehension, and speaking and listening. By the end of the lesson, students write and present their own case for the world's greatest sportsperson, using individually researched subject matter, structural advice, and understanding of persuasive techniques. The learning follows a logical, bitesize journey, in which students: - Discuss and define the key features of what they think makes a sportsperson 'great'; - Research how their own contender meets the features of greatness, using a well-scaffolded research template; - Understand and exemplify each of the persuasive techniques, useful in convincing others of their case; - Critically analyse the language, subject matter, and structure of a model example of a World's Greatest Sportsperson article; - Write, present, and assess their own article. Included is everything that you need to teach, including: - Comprehensive, well-presented whole-lesson PowerPoint (students are led through the learning journey by an animated Usain Bolt character!); - Research template and completed model example; - Persuasive device cards for the card-sorting activity; - Model example of a completed 'World's Greatest Sportsperson' article; - Lesson plan. This would be perfect as a part of an English persuasive writing or speaking and listening unit, a PSHE/Citizenship study of people and their achievements, or a Cross-Curricular activity for less structured learning time. All images are licensed for commercial use, and are cited on the final slide of the presentation.

Dream Jar- Writing frame for display

Here is a dream jar proforma that I made for a BFG inspired display. The children wrote their own dreams onto the jar and then decorated around the outside. It looked really effective. Could be used in any year group.
