Children become Iron Age warriors in this two-session project.

Inference - Y6 Teaching slides

Inference - Y6 Teaching slides

Begin by showing three pictures in turn - what do the children know just by looking at the pictures? Record chn's ideas around the picture on the IWB. What does it mean to infer information? Read the opening of &'The Hobbit&'; with the chn. The words the author has chosen are building a picture of the hobbit. We haven't been introduced to the hobbit yet, but what can we infer about him from the text we have read? Finally, use the table to model structuring an answer to an inference question. I created this powerpoint to prepare a Year 6 class for the SATs reading paper.

Secret Mission Writing Intervention

Secret Mission Writing Intervention

Inspire reluctant writers with this exciting Secret Mission intervention pack! There are six secret missions, in the form of messages with instructions for an independent piece of written work. The children are given these one at a time in an envelope sealed with a 'Top Secret' label. Each mission aims to engage and motivate children to produce imaginative writing with high quality punctuation and vocabulary. My children usually enjoy this so much that the children who aren't on intervention end up asking if they can join in, too!

Using verbs for effect - Year 3 / 4

Using verbs for effect - Year 3 / 4

I created this for an interview (and I did get the job!!), so it only runs for about half an hour and is designed for the children to work quickly in pairs. If you wanted to extend it / differentiate it, you could: a) support children by giving them simple verbs that they have to improve; b) give children all the verbs to fill in rather than just one strip; c) challenge children to add adverbs to heighten the effect of the verbs.\n\nThe Apollo video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzCsDVfPQqk I'm afraid I couldn't upload it on TES!

ISPACE sentence openers dice game

ISPACE sentence openers dice game

I used this as a fun reminder to the children to vary their sentence openers during a 'big write&'. You could also use it as a way of consolidating ISPACE with the children, so that they can practise individual sentences.

Sentence openers lesson plan (Robin Hood)

Sentence openers lesson plan (Robin Hood)

Created to use with Traditional Tales Year 5, but could be adapted for any fiction unit. Lesson plan and dice game are my own. I backed the dice game onto the ISPACE grid from here: http://www.tes.co.uk/resourcedetail.aspx?storycode=6355095 ...but I added in extra ISPACE words to fill in the blanks on the grid. I laminated them and the children loved using them.

Sharp and Blunt Pencil Labels

Sharp and Blunt Pencil Labels

Eradicate the favourite time-wasting trick of sharpening pencils mid-lesson: label two tubs: one 'Sharpened pencils&', one &';Blunt pencils'. A pencil sharpening monitor (rotated regularly) is responsible for keeping the &'sharp&'; tub well-stocked. If a pencil becomes blunted, the child returns it to the 'blunt&' tub and takes a new one from the &';sharp'.

Adverbial phrase resource

Adverbial phrase resource

Reminds chn of four types of adverbial phrases, with examples - how, what, where and why. You could easily adapt this by removing the how / what / where / why, and asking the children which sentence to attribute them to.
