KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

KS1 Talk4Writing:The Christmas Story. Planning & Resources for Four Week Scheme of Work

This resource uses Pie Corbett’s ‘Talk for Writing’. Although this resource uses the story of The Christmas Story, the resources and activities can be easily transferred to another story. Planning can also be used as a skeleton plan. Please note that the characters and places remained the same as we used this as our nativity! It is an excellent opportunity to include children that suffer with hearing loss. It includes: • Four weeks of plans - three sessions each week, could be three if you had four or more sessions a week (imitation, adapation and independent application - each with Lower Ability, Middle Ability and Higher Ability objectives). • Powerpoint of using Pie Corbett’s style of retelling (openers, connectives and language all fit in with actions) • Resources for each session - Story mountain activity sheets and IWB resource Never Heard the Word Activity Adjectives activity Labels to stick in Literacy books with objectives and recount of activity for each activity. • Time opener actions

Class Assembly/Play - THE GREATEST SHOW! (based on the Greatest Showman)

THE GREATEST SHOW! - A PLAY OR CLASS ASSEMBLY! **THIS IS THE CLASS ASSEMBLY THAT CAUGHT THE EYE OF HUGH JACKMAN! HE SENT US A GOOD LUCK MESSAGE! - YOU MAY HAVE SEEN ON THE NEWS! FOLLOW THE LINK BELOW TO SEE MORE OR WATCH US ON THE NEWS ON BBC POINTS WEST 6.6.18 ** https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-44382007 A class assembly/play for reception, KS1 or even KS2! We did this with a Reception class - they were incredible! It ran alongside our ‘Circus’ theme. We focussed lots on The Greatest Showman and the song ‘This is Me’. I’ve included the script, presentation (which includes all music) and some costume letters to be sent home. I added photos of the children to the slide show which made it even better. The slide show has all been set up and timings suited us. We had such great feedback from this production! I hope you enjoy it! (SEE MAIN IMAGE FOR REAL PREVIEW! -The font and pics look a little weird in the TES preview pics? But it’s actually all done in Comic Sans! I did have it all in pre-cursive, but knew that some schools wouldn’t have this font, so changed it all to Comic Sans. Hopefully it should be in that font when you download!)

Talk for Writing unit planning frame, including step by step guidance for teachers as they plan

Talk for Writing unit planning frame, including step by step guidance for teachers as they plan

Many teachers love the Talk for Writing approach but do not find it easy to organise all of Pie’s brilliant ideas into a unit of work. It is a challenge! I have been following the TfW approach for many years, and I have spoken at a few of Pie’s national conferences. Over the years, I have organised Pie’s ideas into a three week planning grid. The planning frame attached is not supposed to be prescriptive; it is designed to ‘hold your hand’ while you put a unit together. It is invaluable for teachers new to this approach, but even old-timers like me find the prompts helpful. This planner has been taken on in many schools and you may adapt it for your own use. This work is designed to support teachers using the TfW approach.
