The adverb song!

The adverb song!

This is a song teaching children about adverbs and how to use them. You can sing this song together as a class, and act out the different adverbs for extra fun (and to help them remember!). I've actually heard children humming this as they write, to remind them where and how to add adverbs. Music aids memory retention and increases engagement and enjoyment of learning in children. If they can sing a skill, they will remember it!

The Sign of Four - Links to Historical Context!

The Sign of Four - Links to Historical Context!

In this engaging and informative lesson enables students to make clear and insightful links between Arthur Conan Doyle’s 'The Sign of Four' and its historical context of 19th Century London. In particular, students learn about the Jack the Ripper murders and subsequent attitudes towards the police, before considering how these ideas are reflected through Athelney Jones in the novel. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which students learn through: - Researching the context of 19th Century London, such as the Jack the Ripper murders and attitudes towards the police; - Reading and understanding chapters 5 and 6, in which Athelney Jones makes his appearance; - Identifying and analysing the language techniques used by Doyle in describing Athelney Jones; - Analysing Doyle's intentions in presenting Athelney Jones in such a manner; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole Lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Paper Copies of Chapters 5 and 6; - Athelney Jones links to context worksheet; - Researching Context worksheet - Essay Template; - Detailed Lesson Plan There are also opportunities for group learning, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. These resources were originally taught to GCSE students, but with subtle adaptations they have also been used with both younger and older (up to A Level) students. Please note that you'll need access to internet/laptops for the researching activity. All images are licensed for commercial use, and image rights are listed on the last page of the presentation.

VCOP flashcards for display

VCOP flashcards for display

Easy flashcards that can be used as table mats when printed A5, or as a display that children can access easily. I bluetacked mine so my children could choose the one they wanted take it back to their desk for spelling purposes. I also used whiteboard markers to star certain words especially connectives that i suggested were applicable for that genre. Vocab ones we also had blank ones so children could write their own words to add to the display

Pronouns

Pronouns

This resource is made with a Harry Potter theme. Children are introduced to the term pronouns through a short Harry Potter clip where they can hear how badly pronouns are needed in spoken language as well as written. I have made differentiated work resources for the children to use for low ability, middle ability and high abililty- all still based on the Harry Potter Theme. Children are encouraged to work in groups throughout this lesson to try and practice using pronouns on whiteboards, before their activity. Using a Harry Potter theme worked well in my class as it fun, colourful and different from their normal SPAG lessons, which can sometimes be boring. I have included a powerpoint, worsheets and a detailed plan with this package.
