My Promise to Plants

My Promise to Plants

In this activity, students decide how they would like to help the plants that live around them to survive. Students make a promise that can apply in their home and at school and illustrate these promises. They will create short imaginative and informative texts that show emerging use of appropriate text structure, sentence-level grammar, word choice, spelling, punctuation and appropriate multimodal elements, for example illustrations and diagrams. They will represent and communicate observations and ideas in a variety of ways such as oral and written language, drawing and role play.

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Literacy Comprehension, Speaking, Listening and Writing SEN, Early Years, Primary

Includes 12 'storyboard' Nursery Rhymes: The Grand Old Duke of York, Row Row Row Your Boat, Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Miss Muffet, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Bo-Peep, Hickory Dickory Dock, Pat-a-cake and Itsy-bitsy Spider. Say the rhymes with the students, get them to listen and recite each line afterwards, ask them to order the 4 pictures for each nursery rhyme, then use the differentiated worksheets to assess their writing and listening skills. For the speaking, listening and writing worksheets we ask carers to let us know either during drop off or via email a couple of things their child has done over the weekend. We then ask the students what they did at the weekend, prompting other students to ask questions of their peers, and then do a recap by asking who did what to assess who was listening before getting the children to write either with help or independently what they did at the weekend.
