I provide a wide range of resources for use in the classroom and around school. My resources build on children's learning and consider the smaller steps children need to take to achieve the learning. My resources have a focus on 'mastery' style questions where possible, to develop children's critical thinking and reasoning skills. As a practicing primary teacher myself, I know how essential it is to have well organised lesson resources with engaging activities that focus on the learning.

Fronted Adverbials (SPaG) 5 lessons with activities (Ancient Greece theme)

(0)
5 Lesson PowerPoints and resources for activities for teaching or re-covering fronted adverbials. Ancient Greece theme to all lessons/ resources so really good for supporting writing if you are doing a topic on Ancient Greece. The lessons could also add to children's exploration of Ancient Greek, including of: Gods, heroes, mythical beasts, temples and battles. Lessons explore what a fronted adverbial is and encourage children to consider where in the sentence it goes; what the verb is that it describes; whether it describes when, where or how; and what punctuation is required. Each lesson has a relevant task with it (task for lesson 4 is included within the lesson PowerPoint) Some critical thinking is required from children as they have to reason why their fronted adverbial was appropriate. There are opportunities for peer assessment. Lessons continue to re-cap children's knowledge, whilst also building on it. Very visual with use of images. Learning objectives include: We are learning to... identify a fronted adverbial; re-order sentences to create a fronted adverbial; create fronted adverbials; write fronted adverbials. All images have been taken from: http://search.creativecommons.org/ where no attribution is required.

Roman Houses Reading Comprehension KS2

Roman Houses Reading Comprehension KS2

(0)
Two differentiated reading texts on Roman houses, both with comprehension questions (between 15 and 20). I wrote these for my Y4 class. Most of the class did the MA text and I edited the text/questions to a lower level for a group of children with some difficulties in reading. They could also be used in Y3 or Y5. The children were very interested in the texts and as they had to think carefully and answer the retrieval questions, they learnt a lot about Roman houses, which was brilliant for our topic work.
