SPaG - A Great Grammar Game for Year 6

(2)
This absorbing and creative grammar and punctuation game is wholly about teaching, rather than testing the SPaG demands for Y6 children The precise elements the game covers are: synonyms and antonyms use of the passive form of verbs. 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 resource includes: A powerpoint presentation outlining to the children how the game is played. It also includes an embedded message from Hetti from planet SPaG. Teachers’ notes with ideas on how to play the game and suggestions for follow up activities. A photocopiable 5x4 grid for the children to use. All the money made from the sale of this resource goes to a local children’s charity - MedEquip4Kids.

Homophone Riddles

(1)
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!

William Shakespeare - His Rich Language, Rude Words and Insults

William Shakespeare - His Rich Language, Rude Words and Insults

(1)
This William Shakespeare resource package is an introduction to Shakespeare’s rich, Elizabethan language. Looking particularly at songs from ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ Professor Francis Bacon is your guide – and he has a large box crammed with (until now) unknown first drafts of songs Shakespeare featured in his plays. Unfortunately, each draft is, well, a bit of a mess and in real need of editing. To almost quote Eric Morecambe, it’s the right words but not necessarily in the right order. The songs featured here are from ‘The Tempest’ and ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’ and the focus is on the end rhymes of the songs. It’s a different activity for each song, but the invitation to young readers is to do the editing and in so doing, play with and engage with the language in an active, creative way. As with a lot of Shakespeare’s work this presentation is littered with Shakespearean insults. So, don’t have young readers that are lumpish, guts-griping maggot-pies. Turn them into precious, honey-tongued editors! As well as the presentation, this package includes all necessary texts for photocopying and editing. Ideal for solo, paired or group work. Ideal for children in Upper KS2 and KS3. All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to MedEquip4Kids. This is a local charity for children that works with medical staff, community nurses and other registered charities to provide equipment and improve facilities in hospitals.

This powerpoint presentation introduces the children to the idea of ‘Spellings Within Spellings’. Based on a popular and very old game, Spellings Within Spellings asks the children to concentrate intently on words from the Year 5/6 Word List. For the teacher the purpose is the child learning the spellings, so the child must constantly be studying and investigating each word to play the game successfully. The presentation also introduces your class to Hetti from Planet SPaG who talks about her love of words. You will discover that Hetti was able to digest and learn the whole list in just 7 seconds! Included in the package is a copy of the Year 5/6 Word List and a series of differentiated photocopiable grids for the children to use. If you and your children enjoy this resource then please let us and others know by leaving us a review. Many thanks.

William Shakespeare - Edit Shakespeare's Language and Become a Wide-Eyed Waffle-Cake

(0)
In this William Shakespeare package we feature a song from ‘The Tempest’ and songs from ‘Cymbelene’ and ‘Hamlet’. In the Powerpoint presentation, Professor Bacon is your guide to first drafts of these Shakespearean songs lost till now in an old trunk. The problem is that the songs’ lines and their verses have been hopelessly jumbled. However, as Joan Collins once said, “Show me a person who has never made a mistake and I’ll show you someone who has never achieved much.” Professor Bacon’s challenge is to edit these line and verses into their correct order. His presentation is littered with Shakespearean insults and compliments. Once the tasks have been correctly completed you’ll have no more weedy beef-witted jolt-heads in your presence - just a class full of gallant, wide-eyed wafer-cakes! Ideal for children in Upper KS2 and KS3. As well as the presentation, this package includes all necessary texts for photocopying and editing. All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to MedEquip4Kids. This is a local charity for children that works with medical staff, community nurses and other registered charities to provide equipment and improve facilities in hospitals.
