Sport Idioms

Sport Idioms

Sport related idioms. Let students guess and figure out the meaning, before give them the definition - then they have to use the idiom to make sentences. Where the origin of the idiom is not obvious, I put it in brackets. This can be done as a game or competition. Enjoy!

Olympic Sports Crossword - Rio 2016

Olympic Sports Crossword - Rio 2016

This is an Olympic Sports Crossword puzzle aimed at P3-7 (Years 2-6 ish) which I made to use with my P3 (Y2) class as an introduction to all the sports at Rio 2016.First they brainstormed in pairs all the sports they knew already. They then attempted the wordsearch and were encouraged to share ideas within and outwith their pairings. Finally, we all came together and were able to complete a class copy of the wordsearch using their collective knowledge and deductions. They then got allocated Olympic events to plan a reasonable way in which they could approximate them using school grounds and resources.We had loads of fun with all this and hope to use their ideas in our end of topic round-up afternoon. I hope you enjoy doing some activities around it with your classes too!

Genre Booklet: How To Write About Football: A Match Report

Genre Booklet: How To Write About Football: A Match Report

Genre-Booklets To Aid Children & Teachers In Writing Across The CurriculumTo read our article about these Genre-Booklets and preview them, please follow this link: https://literacyforpleasure.wordpress.com/genre-booklets/Here is a summary of how the booklets are organised:Genre – The purpose of the goal-orientated writing.Field – Involves people doing things with their lives and sharing it.Tenor – How to interact with the people you are sharing the writing with.Mode – Making use of ways to channel your writing.At least one exemplar text of the register features in actionA ‘Boxing-Up’ planning sheet, showing the stages the genre goes through.What Impact Have We Seen?We place these booklets in plastic hanging-baskets on our literacy wall. When children have completed their class-writing, they are welcome to come and take a booklet from the display and write. Children know they have to follow the writing process – as set out here and use the booklet to support them. We have also had a number of booklets go home – with children asking for addition genres which they feel they need to complete tasks outside of school. These Are Our Main Reflections:Children no longer seem to require so much support from us. They write more freely and happily.Children are taking greater care when planning a piece of writing.Children’s writing is purposeful and always demonstrates features of the genre being written.Their writing is genuinely informative or entertaining and is often cohesively produced.Children aren’t so tentative to begin writing.Children don’t want writing sessions to come to an end – it’s hard to get children to pack away.Children’s motivation to write has increased dramatically.Children’s motivation to research and undertake independent study in the foundation subjects has increased dramatically.Children are reading more critically.Children are taking writing in the foundations subjects more seriously.A sharp increase in children taking writing home.A sharp increase in children purchasing writing-notebooks and writing at home.Children’s writing outcomes have so far been impressive across ability ranges.Children are beginning to talk like real writers.
