Murder, Mystery and Mayhem

Murder, Mystery and Mayhem

A Scheme of Work our AST in English spent many hours devising for his low ability Year 7 set. When Ofsted observed the results this year they described children's progress in his class as 'exceptional.' However, you will need to adapt these resources for your own use. The original story has the first names of children and surnames of teachers in our school - you will need to replace those to have maximum impact. The SoW focusses on responses to writing with an additional opportunity for creative writing at the end (the children close the story).

Story Writing or Sentence  Generator - Roll a Spring Story!

Story Writing or Sentence Generator - Roll a Spring Story!

Roll a Story — you will need two 6 sided dice. I use this grid to support children with generating ideas for their writing… in this case - Spring themed stories. There are different ways to use them e.g: Work in teams of 2-4, roll the dice and generate four images or words from the grid to make up a story together. This can be a short talking task, they might write a story summary or use it to help them plan a story. Children roll the dice and create a sentence using the words or image to ‘win’ the square. Take turns to roll and tell the story. The first to have four squares in a row, column or diagonal wins. Make the story grid available for the children as they write— if they get stuck they can roll the dice and use the grid to help them. I am sure there are lots of other games too! I have also included a grid for children or teachers to add their own images and words.
