I'm an ex-teacher (is that possible? Surely once a teacher, always a teacher, right?) who has primary, secondary and SEND experience. My resources are English- and Literacy-based, and have a tendency to be designed to accommodate students with an additional need to be engaged! Thank you for visiting :)

spelling practice sheets (5 spellings)

(0)
Two editable sheets with activities for practising five spellings. Each one has a selection of activities to complete using the designated spellings given by you. Both sheets have space for look/say/cover/write/check/repeat. Sheet 1: This is the more flexible of the two sheets, allowing pupils to choose their own exercise to do additional practice for their learning. There is also a grid for creating a ‘crossword’ or wordsearch with their spellings. The grid is 10x10 and will therefore only accommodate spellings up to ten letters, unless you want to allow more creativity! There is also a section for writing the definitions of the words. Sheet 2: The activities on this sheet comprise: Putting each of the words into a sentence; Recognising the word class for each of the spellings; A space for matching the spelling with a definition or synonym (to be filled in by you); Space for pupils to identify the key point to remember with regard to that spelling (eg. a double letter, a c instead of an s etc); A space for pupils to find other words with a similarity (of your choice) with a spelling/the spellings on the list (eg. having the same letter pattern/prefix/suffix)

A SPaG starter worksheet to last all week!

This idea follows one that I created for my mainstream SEN group. At the beginning of the lesson the students choose an activity and get started without prompting. There are SPaG activities including spelling and grammar corrections to mark (I allowed my pupils to use red pen for this!), some detective work (research activity), ‘tea break’ puzzle (wordsearch including spellings from the page but with additional words related to the topic), a discussion topic for spoken English, some reading questions (simple find and infer), and a creative/drawing activity for the students who struggle with writing and reading and need a break every once in a while.

A short story designed for use in the practice of language and structure analysis. This includes a cover sheet with ideas. The resource can also be used as a discussion starter, being in the region of 200 words. The story is left ambiguous so that there are a variety of interpretations. Because of this the story can also be used as a great prompt for creative writing, as the tale can be continued in a range of directions… Thank you for looking!

Worksheets using an image as a prompt for descriptive writing

(0)
Three pdf worksheets for improving creative writing through the use of an image as a stimulus and short, straightforward exercises to introduce the student to the writing task. Each sheet suggests ideas through correction tasks (add in the punctuation, correct the grammar) and ‘stretch a sentence’ (with prompts for possible stretches, such as adjectives/adverbial clauses etc), as well as space for some (carefully chosen) spellings! There is then space in the lower half of the page for the student to practise writing a description of their own, drawing on the vocabulary and ideas used for the previous exercises.

Originally designed for lower attaining students at KS3 and KS4, but useful for KS2 as well. This editable worksheet is provided with the intention that students keep information useful for revision ‘as they go along’. But a character study at any point is going to fit into this worksheet and provide you with a structure for recording or investigating information .

Feedback pro forma

(0)
This editable A4 sheet includes three feedback proforma. These can by used for peer feedback, however, the lower half can be used by the teacher/teaching assistant instead if you wish. Note that the starred* spaces could be used for a sentence to be written by staff, or a sentence from the pupil’s/student’s work to be indicated (perhaps by highlighting) in the piece, to be used for the task. These proforma encourage meaningful feedback between students and between student and teacher, which is structured, simple and compact. Use the edit feature to develop tasks as you wish, for example, instead of using the last box on ‘SPaG blitz’ for the past tense of, you could adapt it to subject/verb agreement, prefixes/suffixes, or root words.

Make-Your-Own Revision Notes: Author Study

To complement the character study sheet, this author study was created so that students with a lower attainment could record useful key information while it is taught, in a way that will be easy to access later. This editable worksheet allows students to keep information about the author of the work they are studying and the historical/social context within which it was written. the influences on the author, and the message that s/he consistently presented to their audience. All ‘box’ titles are editable, and therefore can be swapped if the spaces are the wrong size for purpose.
