Year 3 Code Making and Code Breaking - NC Word List

Year 3 Code Making and Code Breaking - NC Word List

This resource is all about codes – breaking them and making them. But there’s a twist – The National Curriculum’s 100 Word List spellings for Years 3 and 4 provides ALL the words and messages the children have to work on. A generous PowerPoint show of almost 100 slides introduces children to Agent Sam and his top-secret Spy School and then goes on to present and explain 4 different codes. All four codes are unique to this Y3 programme and the PowerPoint show lets you and the children choose which codes to look at. This allows for both whole class and independent learning. To follow this up there are printable worksheets for each of these codes. Children completing work on all 4 codes will have done invaluable work reinforcing their learning of ALL the NC’s Year 3 and 4 Word List spellings - by really looking hard at the makeup of some rather tricky vocabulary – and had a lot of fun and mental stimulation into the bargain. And for you, the teacher, there is an equally invaluable answer sheet! All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.

Homophone Riddles

Homophone Riddles

What do you call a jumbo jet before it’s painted? The answer to this riddle (which you will find near the bottom of this page) is a pair of homophones. Children love solving riddles and also creating their own. This material can be used across KS1 – KS3 to both introduce the concept of homophones to younger children and for re-visiting it in subsequent years to consolidate the children’s knowledge. This resource is intended to foster youngster’s confidence and skill in navigating the quirks of English spelling by making it a game to engage with, rather than a problem to worry about. In the PowerPoint presentation the children are introduced to an alien creature called Korb who lives on the far away planet of SPaG. Korb explains to the children what a homophone is and then shows them how they can create teasing riddles. The answer to each riddle is always a pair of homophone words. Look out for another Goodeyedeers resource called ‘Homophone Riddle-Poems’ where you will meet Korb’s alien friend, Riya. The answer to the riddle at the top of this page is – a plain plane!

An A-Z  0f  Dinosaurs

An A-Z 0f Dinosaurs

Welcome to the Dinosaurus, complete and in order, from Allosaurus to Zephyrosaurus – and one for each letter of the alphabet in between. For each of 26 pre-historic monsters there’s a poem – appropriately a reworking of an old, traditional rhyme. The rhymes are displayed and read aloud by their creator, children’s writer David Horner, and each is accompanied by a vivid, full-colour illustration created from the ever fertile imagination of artist Anne Hodgkiss. Each poem and illustration is followed by the rhyme’s original version. Also included is a Timeline, showing the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods, marked with letters of the alphabet, to show just when each of the 26 chosen dinosaurs lived. A click on any letter will take the reader straight to the chosen dinosaur. Alternatively, readers can turn the pages of this audio e-book, taking each letter in turn, in a unique celebration of the dinosaur, the whole forming an invaluable addition to the classroom materials on these long-lost masters of the earth.
