Special Agent Training badge templates, cover page, application and certificates for Year 2 (SATS!)

Special Agent Training badge templates, cover page, application and certificates for Year 2 (SATS!)

A fun way to engage Year 2 in the SATS - Special Agents Training. Children make an ID card and create a Code name (I use favorite colour and animal (e.g. Silver Panther). Chn are given a star on the back of their ID card for each training session they complete (SATS paper!). At the end of the training I am going to issue the certificates and get the children to complete a Special Agents assault course (in PE) and treasure hunt style code breaking with a small reward to ‘uncover’ at the end. All resources are editable.

Year 6 Talk 4 Writing Unit - Newspaper

Year 6 Talk 4 Writing Unit - Newspaper

A fully planned, 2-week unit based on the Talk 4 Writing approach for writing a newspaper article - WAGOLL uses Batman and Penguin as inspiration. The final outcome is for children to write a newspaper article - we based ours on the novel There May be a Castle but this could be tailored to your classes needs. Resources include a Smart Notebook file which follows the read as a reader/writer approach to analyse the Newspaper WAGOLL in detail, line by line. The file also includes lesson starters and writing prompts including for direct and reported speech (taking quotes from Prime Ministers Questions during the Windrush debate), parenthesis and correct use of colons/semi-colons. Also included is a newspaper WAGOLL that was used as our oral text (learning actions and creating a story map), a boxing up activity and a writers toolkit - and everything is editable to match the needs of your class! This was used with Year 6 but would be ideal for KS2 and KS3. Boys and girls were engaged and this led to some excellent writing outcomes (for something children traditional find difficult to nail) assessed against the writing assessment framework.

Issues and Dilemmas- Lesson Plan and Resources

Issues and Dilemmas- Lesson Plan and Resources

This was a fantastic week of English lessons, including lots of speaking and listening activities, resulting in effective writing. This genre was studied through the story ‘Journey to Jo’Burg’. To which we read the first two chapters online (pdf linked in planning) and ended up writing the third chapter as our ‘big write’ including an issue and dilemma. Lesson 1: Children explore the terms issue and dilemma by engaging in a conscience alley, forcing the child acting as the main character to make a decision based on a dilemma. (thoroughly enjoyable). Lesson 2: Children read through the chapter 1 and 2 (linked in planning) and underline dialogue, action and different words for the word ‘said’. This allows children to see the exact style used by the author in order for them to recreate their very own chapter 3 in the style of the story. Planning is also done in this lesson. Lesson 3: The success criteria is shared with the children and they are then allowed the remainder of the lesson to finish off their chapter 3. The end product was fantastic! The children came up with their own title for their chapter and really took on the style of the author, alternating between dialogue and action. It was fantastic! Attached also is the display I made/used for these fantastic pieces of work! Enjoy!
