Ideal end-of-term fun for classes of all ages, with scope for physical movement and multi-arts development. Once there was a dragon dressed in red. He liked to stay all day in… - but you can guess the last word, and so can the children, although some may prefer to offer alternatives with other rhyming words. Red is just one example of the numerous colours featuring in these crazy dragon verses, which lend themselves to being enacted, and even sung to a made-up tune, as well as chanted and clapped.

Castle picture, detailed, looking in, up, round... black/white A5 (approx)

Castle picture, detailed, looking in, up, round... black/white A5 (approx)

This picture offers inspiration for creative writing, support for medieval history or castle study and colouring. It depicts an ancient, yet still creepily inhabited, crumbling castle. A mouse (or rat?), a fallen key, a twisty staircase, candlelight, a shadow at the casement window, a narrow passage, lit at the far end, a grand pillar, stone floors - they’re all there. I originally draw the picture to illustrate a castle poem in a book of mine, now out of print.

Treasure Map Alliteration Game (Yr1-6) + Guide for Use

Treasure Map Alliteration Game (Yr1-6) + Guide for Use

This is a fun, imagination-firing, creative writing activity, centred on a pirate’s treasure map. It has proved popular with children of all ages and abilities in my workshops. It can be written individually or shared verbally, the challenge being to think up nouns to fit the gaps, with one rule: they have to start with the same letter as that of the starter word (e.g. Forest of Feet). The Guide sheet offers lists of words to prompt for - if needed, and suggestions for embellishing the activity. The challenge of thinking up nouns starting with the same letter as the starter word - and on a treasure map - motivates even reluctant writers to have a go at this mind-stretching, language-enriching game.

Ladybird Picture Poem Frame, Early Yrs/Yr1 + Guidance Notes

Ladybird Picture Poem Frame, Early Yrs/Yr1 + Guidance Notes

This resource comprises a picture-poem frame and a one-page guide for the teacher’s use. Both are in PDF format. The picture-poem frame features a huge ladybird (hand-drawn). Above it is an opening phrase: ‘This ladybird is’, inviting describing words on the short, thick lines in and around the insect. Below it, there is a line for a simile, with the starting phrase ‘He is as red as’. The sheet is designed for emergent writers and newly independent ones, also providing colouring opportunities. The guidance notes offer tips for preparing children for the activity, followed by lists of words and simile ideas to prompt for. Some thoughts about the colouring aspect are also included. Although principally a Literacy activity, this resource supports other areas of the EYFS curriculum too, such as Understanding the World and Expressive Art & Design. It has been been successfully tried and tested in classrooms.

'Fish are...' Writing & Colouring Sheet + Guide

'Fish are...' Writing & Colouring Sheet + Guide

This resource comprises a writing/colouring sheet + a one-sheet guide for teachers, both black-and-white, PDFs. The fish-themed writing and colouring sheet - or picture poem frame - is a simple and attractive activity for EYFS. It offers a single line (at the top) for descriptive writing, with the starter words ‘Fish are’. The space below is filled with a large, hand-drawn scene of a patterned fish under the sea. The guide provides a list of relevant words to prompt for as needed, and two suggestions for extending the literacy aspect. The resource supports multiple curricular areas, in particular: Literacy, Expressive Arts & Design, Physical Development (fine motor skills) and Understanding The World. The attractive design has been proven to motivate young children to think up and try to write descriptive words for the fish, and to experiment with colours and pencil control. Enthuse children in the topic first, perhaps by showing pictures or videos of fish in the sea, looking at some in an aquarium, reading a story about a fish and enacting them together.
