An online Google Slides game for practising verbs. It works well on desktop computers or interactive whiteboards, especially in full screen mode. It's less suitable for mobile devices. Players have to identify words in sentences in order to collect fruit to make a fruit salad. If they go wrong, they are sent back to the beginning. Beware of the cheat potential with this, however: the slide controls at the bottom om the screen enable the player to click through the slides without answering the questions!
This is a 13 page pdf file containing 5 separate activities suitable for KS3 or upper KS2 English. The unit begins with a 500 word comprehension about the origin of Christmas crackers. The comprehension contains 15 questions, with available marks indicated. A mark scheme is supplied. It is followed by differentiated dictation: 3 versions of the same 100 word text based on the reading passage. Teacher notes are supplied. The third activity is a speed dictation (Dictagloss). Another 100 word text is read at speed and pupils are tasked with re-assembling it collaboratively. This activity should generate a lot of talk. Full teacher notes accompany the text. After that there is a worksheet on root words and word families, with teacher notes. Finally, the writing activity is an acrostic poem entitled CRACKERS. 2 examples of teacher-generated acrostic poems are included in the teaching notes.
These differentiated sets of worksheets are written to meet the objectives for Year 6 Number. Each of the four topics is split into three levels, indicated on the worksheets by 1, 2 or 3 stars. There are 3 versions of each worksheet.
The material could be used in several ways:
* work through all the levels with the whole class
* use the levels to target varying abilities within the class
* use extra versions of tasks to set as follow-up homework
* where pupils are inclined to copy, use different versions of worksheets to ensure independent working
* extra versions of tasks can be set as assessment at the end of a unit
Learning objectives are given at the beginning of each sheet.
A simple ‘thumbs up’ style of self-assessment is printed at the bottom of each task.
The beginning of Dickens' A Christmas Carol is set as a comprehension text suitable for upper KS2 and KS3. A mark scheme is supplied. The same text forms the basis of four more worksheets: a timed reading test, a cloze activity, spelling correction, and a missing capital letter exercise.
This is an Interactive team game for able beginners. 5 categories with four graded questions in each. Topics are on personal information: name, age, where you live… Score needs to be kept on a flip chart or whiteboard. Correct answers earn the points indicated on the question slide.

For KS1 and lower KS2. A seven slide (plus title and end) presentation on how commas are used for lists. Nouns, noun phrases and adjectives are covered fully, and at the end there is an indication that the same rules apply for other types of lists (verbs and adverbs, for example). Each demonstration slide is followed by a whole class 'Try this' activity, which could be done on individual whiteboards or in books. Available as either PowerPoint or PDF. The second file is a worksheet where pupils have to supply the commas in sentences containing lists. Answers are provided. Lesson plan also included.
This is the first of a series of short texts for teaching SPaG. I was looking for material that I could use for teaching spelling, grammar and punctuation, and which could be used at the end of the week as a dictation assessment. Unable to find anything suitable, I ended up scribbling them myself on a Monday morning. Most of the themes are directed at the class I was teaching at the time, but some teachers may relate to them. I called them The Monday Nag, for obvious reasons!
The pack contains a PowerPoint presentation, and five activities. There is a spelling sheet covering the points highlighted in the text, a Cloze activity, a supported dictation worksheet for lower ability learners, a writing task, and a crossword on grammatical terms best suited for more able pupils.
I would suggest working through the PowerPoint on the first session of the week and leading up to the writing task and the dictation at the end of the week, by which time children should be thoroughly familiar with both text and SPaG content.
Five folders each containing 3 worksheets to support teaching of German greetings. The sixth item is a presentation linking to the online resources on which the worksheets are based (this file is available separately as a free resource, but is included here for convenience).
