Resources include: grammar teaching, reading materials, independent activities, English units of work and much more. I am always trying to create new and exciting things for the children I teach and will share as much as I can with you. Some things are specific for my school and/or class but I will make each item editable so you can adapt it to your needs. Thank you in advance for purchasing my resources and I hope they help you in your teaching.

Character Description Unit

Character Description Unit

(0)
A whole unit of work based on The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura. The children will write a character description using either the boy or Om as the base. We called the boy ���Peter’ after my reading Panda, Peter Panda. The children I have taught at my school SJA have been really engaged in the learning which lasts approximately 3 weeks (15 teaching sessions). All objectives come from the English National Curriculum for Year 3/ Lower Key Stage 2. Resource includes: Lessson PowerPoint with learning objectives, Grammar Geek (How to use this is below), lesson activities and planning. All resources are editable. How to use Grammar Geek: Introduce the session slide, read out each objective. The colours focus on different parts of grammar: vocabulary, structure and application. Give children 5 minutes to complete as much as they can. Support can be given. We complete ours in silence and adults support children across the class. After 5 minutes, invite individual children to read the objective and give their answer with explanation e.g. I have put a comma here and full stop at the end because it has two clauses in this sentence. After children’s responses, show the ‘teacher’ responses and discuss reasons behind each answer. The aim of Grammar Geek is to increase the children’s knowledge and understanding of grammar whilst engaging them in the unit of work. I hope you enjoy!

Reading Viper Resources

(0)
Reading Vipers was originally designed by The Literacy Shed. I have adapted the idea to suit our school’s needs and we use my resources for guided reading each day. The resource includes: independent reading activities, guided reading recording sheet and question cards that can be used to prompt discussion. This resource is designed for Key Stage 2 as it links to the Key Stage 2 reading domains. With adaptations, the resource can be used for Key Stage 1 - the question cards would be most useful for KS1. Editable versions are available.

The children will write a class poem using a range of Sorting Hat songs written over the Potter series of books by JK Rowling.
