This popular PowerPoint lesson takes the children through the first verse of the poem ‘Jabberwocky’ by Lewis Carroll and gives them a strategy for turning this nonsensical poem into one that makes sense - almost! The children have practice in recognising nouns, adjectives and verbs and in using the dictionary to find suitable replacement words. The Teachers’ Notes gives background information to the creation of the poem and in particular, Lewis Carroll’s use of ‘portmanteau words’. They also have a number of suggestions for further activities. There is a document with the text of the poem plus another where Humpty Dumpty explains the first verse of the poem to Alice. According to him, he can - “… explain all the poems that ever were invented - and a good many that haven’t been invented just yet.” If you enjoy this resource then please tell your colleagues and maybe leave us a review.

SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 5

(0)
In this engrossing and creative game players meet – or possibly re-meet - Hetti, a smart and friendly alien living on the far off planet of SPaG. The game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar demands for Y5 children as set out in the most recent National Curriculum for English. The PowerPoint lesson leads the children, step by step, through the game. It also includes an embedded video introducing the children to Hetti. The Teachers’ Notes give more instructions for playing the game and suggested follow up activities. The precise elements the game covers are: relative clauses relative pronouns modal verbs adverbs suggesting degrees of possibility. In playing this version of the Great Grammar Game, children will also be revisiting and revising their SPaG knowledge from previous years. Like all other versions of the game it can be played more than once, either in small groups of 5 or more, or by a whole class. The National Curriculum insists that building grammatical knowledge is best achieved through a focus on grammar within the teaching of reading, writing and speaking. This is exactly how this activity is designed to work. The money raised from the sale of this resource is going to a children’s charity called MedEquip4Kids.

Portmanteau Words - Making Sense of Nonsense

Portmanteau Words - Making Sense of Nonsense

(0)
This resource is ideally for children in upper KS2 and lower KS3. A portmanteau word is a new word made from two already existing ones. For example, Brexit. Lewis Carroll started the fun, in the poem 'Jabberwocky'.  In the powerpoint presentation pupils meet special agent Sam, who works for SYD - Subverting Your Dictionary.  First Sam explains what portmanteau words are and gets them investigating existing portmanteaux. He then invites youngsters on a mission of verbal invention, the creation of new portmanteaux - all linked to a classic 19th Century lyric poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley. And remember - one of Carroll's words, 'chortle', did so well, most people don't realise its origins. So, not so much nonsense as new sense! All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a North West charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.

Playing With Poetry - Writing Diamante Poems

In this PowerPoint lesson, the children are shown how to create their own diamante poems making use of compound nouns. A diamante is an unrhymed seven-line poem. The beginning and ending lines are the shortest, while the lines in the middle are longer, giving diamante poems a diamond shape. ‘Diamante’ is the Italian word for diamond. It was created by an American poet named Iris McClellan Tiedt in 1969. In this lesson, we adapt the more traditional format of the poem to give the children practise in using compound nouns, verbs adjectives and adverbs. The teachers’ notes that go with this resource have more background information about the diamante poetic form; information on how the PowerPoint lesson is set out and a grid (with instructions) for the children to use when creating their diamante poems.
