Connectives -co-ordination and subordination - 2 complete lessons - 'because' and others.

Connectives -co-ordination and subordination - 2 complete lessons - 'because' and others.

Lesson 1: Use of connectives concentrating on 'because'. Includes mnemonic which could be printed out for display. Show faces of 'Harry' with different emotions. Why is he feeling like this. Orally think of sentences - Harry was feeling happy because... Next children write sentences about children on their own table in a similar way. Lesson 2: This time children are shown pictures of places - London, the moon, the zoo etc. They write similar sentences about other children but this time use more connectives, e.g. Maria went to the zoo when it was her birthday. The Presentations are either in Smart notebook or PPT. Everything is fully editable. Detailed plans are provided. Feedback would be lovely!

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Powerpoint and Plan

A short powerpoint to accompany each lesson in a unit of work for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. There are 18 lessons in total (including two to watch the film), which took me about 4 weeks to complete with my Year 4 class. The objectives in the planning come from the 2014 English curriculum for Year 4, but I think these lessons would be easily adaptable for any KS2 class. At the end of the unit the children will write their own short story. Credit: A number of the lesson ideas have come from fellow TES author sara2007. Most of the photos are from the Disney film. None of the illustrations are my own.
