Toot Hill School Reading Challenge

Toot Hill School Reading Challenge

The Toot Hill Reading Challenge is aimed at 11 - 14 year olds, however, older students would gain greatly from them too. They have been created from Future Classics in the 'free books for school' packs available from Book Trust. The objective of the challenge is to encourage students to read a book from cover to cover, by answering the ten questions that have been put together in chronological order...no trick questions! Students are keen to work through the challenge and have found reluctant readers have completed the quiz too. The incentive of school credits and a prize seems to work. We set them as a monthly challenge to increase the focus of the book. We have also found these challenges help the student to understand what they are reading and it also helps teachers/librarians find out if students are actually reading their books, so can be used as a tester for students.

Using adverbs and adjectives in descriptive writing

Using adverbs and adjectives in descriptive writing

This resource revises the use of adverbs in different positions within sentences and asks pupils to create sentences using adverbs appropriately. Students rearrange sentences to make them flow and look at descriptive extracts which use both adjectives and adverbs for effect. Pupils decide which extract is the more descriptive and find evidence to support their choices. I include one of my Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar quizzes in which adverbs and adjectives feature in one of the sections. Answers are provided. Suitable for ages 10+
