Various intervention personalised writing skills placemats

Various intervention personalised writing skills placemats

I am pleased to add several intervention placemat resources. There are several placemats attached: how to use sentence types, how to use commas, punctuation and and lots of placemats that help pupils avoid all the most common grammar mistakes (including some really bespoke, personal skills). These placemats save me the extra burden of constantly reminding pupils of important writing skills. Just simply descide what each pupil struggles with, organise them a personal placemat by quickly pasting in the skills and print them off double-sided! These placemats work really well laminated and left on tables while pupils work in groups, pairs or independently. Ideal for both KS3 and KS4. The placemats are alsoextremely handy for your KS5 classes!

A fun, engaging transition project involving your Year 7s and potential Year 6 pupils

A fun, engaging transition project involving your Year 7s and potential Year 6 pupils

I am pleased to add a fun, engaging but simple transition project involving your Year 7s and Year 6 pupils. Firstly, you will need to teach your Year 7 group about descriptive writing. The descriptive writing task for Year 6 transition pupils will be to describe Little Red Riding Hood’s journey through the forest to her grandma’s cottage. Pupils will imagine they are her and describe their journey. Pupils from Year 6 transition will visit your classroom and do a series of ‘marketplace’ inspiration stations - each will be to do with an element of descriptive writing – vocabulary, simile, metaphor, personification, zooming in on detail etc. When these stations have been visited, Year 6 pupils will sit down and complete the piece of descriptive writing; your Year 7 pupils will then act as ‘teachers’ – walking around and supporting each Year 6 learner. This is a must-have project that will save lots of time and planning and will create fantastic links between your school and feeder schools!
