Literacy Planning Format

This is a very simple planning format to follow in literacy, particularly useful if you don’t want to spend hours planning each week. This Year 2 planning format is based on a 3-week cycle during which the children will cover the following areas: Spelling focus/pattern Grammar focus Punctuation focus Writing focus (writing to instruct/entertain/persuade/report//explain) Topic-related literacy lessons Comprehension task BIG WRITE (planning and writing stage) Handwriting task Just fill in the gaps (by hand) each week and make your planning style much more flexible and less time consuming!

Rewards and Sanctions - FLIP A CARD!

Rewards and Sanctions - FLIP A CARD!

Very effective rewards and sanctions system … some say quite a hard approach but it definitely works! PREPARATION: Just photocopy the ‘Flip -a-card’ template onto some blue, yellow, red and green card then laminate. Each child must receive their own set of 4 cards (blue, yellow, red and green). Each day, every child starts off by displaying their GREEN CARD. You can ask the children to keep their cards on their table OR you can display them on a wall (I usually make a simple pocket for the cards to fit into by folding a piece of thin card and stapling either side … the cards should slot snuggly inside). You might want to invite your class parents in before you start so they understand the ‘new’ rewards system. NOW YOU’RE READY! Just follow the ‘flip a card’ rules sheet and off you go. You can adapt the rules if you want.
