Average Rating4.45
(based on 51 reviews)

My intention is to provide an inexpensive, engaging and highly useful What A Good One Looks Like (WAGOLL) and Grammar resources for use across the primary phase. I shall be uploading many WAGOLLs over the forthcoming weeks, across all genres. I also intend to upload many resources from my own scheme Grotty Grammar, which again will be useful across both Key Stages.

Interactive Phonics 'Alien or Astronaut' game

This is a good activity to have out all the time in Key stage 1, whether on a spare bit of wall, on the back of a door etc. Laminate the pictures. Make multiple copies of the yellow circle as these will be asteroids. On the asteroids, write real and nonsense words which the children have to blu-tac to the alien or astronaut accordingly. It's a good idea to have a couple of these games out as a useful extension activity for guided reading/literacy if a group finishes early.

Decodable book for Phase 2/3 book

Simple home-made book I made for Year 1 during their first full week back at school to get them used to sounding out + blending words. The pictures are all the same to stop the children from guessing or using picture clues and get them to rely on phonemic strategies. The children will draw their own pictures as an extension activity. I intend to make some more of these books over the forthcoming weeks.
