Fun Writing Project Year 6 Catch Up and Revision - Journey by Aaron Becker KS2

(4)
A great writing project to allow children to learn GPS while writing a wonderful story. Great for catch up and will last weeks. You don’t need the book as the PPT has it all. 30 slides (to accompany the book Journey). Each slide has a different focus. A step by step approach that introduces all aspects of the writing assessment criteria including: • creating atmosphere, and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action • using a range of cohesive devices, including adverbials, within and across sentences and paragraphs sentences and paragraphs • using passive and modal verbs mostly appropriately • using a wide range of clause structures, sometimes varying their position within the sentence • using adverbs, preposition phrases and expanded noun phrases effectively to add detail, qualification and precision • using mostly correctly: inverted commas commas for clarity punctuation for parenthesis • making some correct use of: semi-colons dashes colons hyphens • semi-colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses • colons to mark the boundary between independent clauses This was a real labour of love. Enjoy.

Greek Myths - King Midas full plan, flip chart and resources (1 week)

(0)
This is a take on the myth of King Midas. The week plan, resources and flip chart (it is Promethean ActivInspire and ActivPrimary compatible but also includes a PDF version) allows children to explore the myth, write in character and create their own version. It is packed with SPaG activities as lesson starters and resources to support each day (including an example diary, links, a video file and story plan). Some of the LOs are below. LO: I can identify similarities and differences between myths and legends LO: I can write a diary entry as a character from a myth. It will save hours of work.

Writing at the expected level KS2 - Evidence and step by step story aimed at NC (updated March 2019)

Writing at the expected level KS2 - Evidence and step by step story aimed at NC (updated March 2019)

(1)
This is a PowerPoint (that can be converted to a flip chart) that takes pupils through what is required to write a short story at the expected level and is a step by step guide. It is aimed at the criteria and framework and has produced some wonderful writing from my year 6 class. It shows the children where to include the punctuation, grammar and structure throughout a short story. There are 29 slides in total, each with a different focus which enables the children to include all of the skills they have learnt throughout the year. It is based on Eye of the Storm from the Literacy Shed (link included in the PPT). This is the opening of the story, written by a lower ability child (typed out with no corrections): As he stared into the sky, not worrying about his destruction from the mesmerising, raging storm, he gazed at the green lightening. His white, dragon like scarf waved in the sky. The black, silver lined coat shone in the sun’s omega light. The empty shell of a man thought that he could survive the storm. He kept his face hidden because he didn’t want to remember who he was. He turned his head slightly; he knew what he had to do. The ship he was travelling on had a unique energy that was pure electricity. It looked like a war ship, ready for battle. A war to save a dragon, a war to save the world, a war to save everyone. Terrifying memories of murder in his head. He had never found Martha…

BIDMAS Investigation - An easy to explain (but hard to complete) lesson.

BIDMAS Investigation - An easy to explain (but hard to complete) lesson.

(0)
The idea is to try and make all the numbers from 0 to 20 by using BIDMAS. The only number you are allowed to use is 4. You MUST use four lots of 4 in each equation (number sentence). You may not use any other numbers. If you want to find 0 you can use the following sum: (4 + 4) – (4 + 4) = 0 To find 3 you can use: (4 + 4 + 4) ÷ 4 = 3 This is a ready to go lesson that will take an hour+ depending on ability level. It also has a simple extension task.
