Phonics Screening Check FUN racing game   Year 1  KS1  eyfs  Split digraphs. Real/Nonsense words

Phonics Screening Check FUN racing game Year 1 KS1 eyfs Split digraphs. Real/Nonsense words

This game is loved by my mixed R/1 class. This download includes 5 PDF documents with 4 pages (20 boards in all). Each split digraph a_e , e_e, i_e , o_e and u_e have been split into three levels of difficulty and the middle ability has a copy with the sounds highlighted to further differentiate. The pupils simply roll die and then move car and say word they land on. These sounds are ideal to cover if you are working on phase 5 or set 3 RWI phoncis schemes. This can be used as a whole class activity / starter or with 1:1/group interventions. The interactive Smartboard game uses a die that only goes up to 3. This makes it a snappy but not too long a game. Children could play best out of three or you could use the game boards to set out a mini competition/tournament around the classroom. It’s also great wen doing transport as a theme and to check and stretch learning. I’ve included the word documents so that you can edit and create your own words. Great revision activity for the upcoming phonics screening. No real preparation needed. Simply print and use. You only need toy cars or a playing piece and a die. I really hope you and your class enjoy this as much as my class do. Please leave feedback if possible :) Thanks

Stage 2: The teacher uses the criteria to specify which ACTIONS the student needs to take to get to the next grade. Stage 3: The student writes a written RESPONSE to the teacher’s comments about the ACTIONS required to reach the next stage.

Riddles and Puzzles (End of term)

Riddles and Puzzles (End of term)

This is a slide show that contains 22 slides of puzzles and riddles. They are easy enough to guess the answers but hard enough to present a fun challenge for primary school-aged children. I used these riddles as part of an English lesson in Year 5 and they were very well received. It also includes a worksheet where the riddles have been differentiated to solve in groups as an alternative to a whole-class activity. This is a light hearted end-of-term fun activity for the children who are tired, and in need of something a bit lighter, but it will nonetheless develop their critical thinking skills, and hopefully foster a love of these word-play type problems. The presentation includes slides explaining what riddles are and how they work, and giving several guided examples before launching into the whole class slides. Each separate riddle is presented on one slide, which is then animated to reveal the answer, alongside an explanation of any that may need further clarification. Having carried out this lesson previously where children simply read the printed riddles from a worksheet, I am really pleased with the slide show, as the pictures add another element of deception - you are further able to mislead their thinking with subtle/subconscious red-herrings! I hope you have fun using this resource. I would be grateful if you could leave a review.

Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

A lesson that focuses on the witches’ use of word play and how this influenced Macbeth’s course of action. This includes a lesson plan, lesson presentation and differentiated activity. This lesson allows for a more detailed consideration of the role of the witches, and the use of the deliberately misleading in order to influence, but it is more than this, as it aims to foster a love of words and wordplay with the children. (There are some nice PSHE elements in terms of things people might say nowadays that are not actual lies, but not actually the truth, too.) There’s a great link to a clip from Shrek II where Pinocchio is attempting not to give away Shrek’s position but cannot lie. He uses double negatives and babble to mislead without lying! Children will really enjoy attempting to solve the riddles, which have been pitched so that at least 1 or 2 per bundle should be solved, possibly more. I’ve tried to source new ones, but there are a couple of oldies, too. The riddles should be distributed in tables or groups of 4-6. They are read and discussed in the groups. Once the solutions are given, pupils consider how the language was misleading/what it was about the riddle that was deceptive. This can be a piece of written work, or remain a spoken activity. I have used this resource in Year 5, with a re-written story version of Macbeth, once the story had been completed, so they could appreciate the significance of the second prophecies. We had puns and riddles galore for weeks afterwards! I hope you enjoy using this resource. I would be grateful if you could leave a review, once you have used it in class.
