Last Day - Memories

(0)
Children in year 6 are often asked to write something for their final assembly. I have created two sheets. Sheet one should give them ideas about what to write. Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet. Hope these two sheets will inspire the children to write either a piece of prose or to have a go at writing a poem.

Black Friday is the last Friday in November. This when firms sell some of their products at a really crazy price. The children might like to pretend that they can buy ALL l their Christmas presents they have dreamed of having. OR they might like to believe their pocket money will be sufficient to buy ALL the presents they want to buy to give to their parents. I have created a list of phrases and a vocabulary to create their dream.
Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan

(0)
Part 1 of John Bunyan’s famous book, Pilgrim’s Progress looks at Christian’s journey to the Celestial city, has just been turned into a colourful animated film. It can be seen in cinemas now. I saw it a fortnight ago - I very impressed with the film. Those who have not yet read the book, which was written over 300 years ago(1678), will get a taster about what Bunyan was trying to explain in his book. The film finished with the phrase ’ to be continued '. Part 2, which is nearly half the book, is the story of how his wife, Christina and their four children with Mercy, follow in his footsteps. This has yet to be created . I have included information about the book which can still be bought, plus Britannica’s over view of the book by Patricia Bauer and Vybarr Creyan-Reid. Finally there is information about how the Holy Spirit influenced John Bunyan’s spiritual life (see an extract from V.Raymond Edman’s book They Found the Secret**).

I thought this would be a topical piece of Creative Writing for pupils in years 5/6 to tackle when they return to school after the Christmas holidays . The original story, based on the four pictures, is about a lad going with his mother to buy a special game with his birthday money. I created a phrase and vocabulary list plus an example answer a number of years ago. The Poetry Aid is a new extra.

With the Commonwealth Games coming up halfway through April I decided to research and create relevant material.

Added to those are general Vocabularies/Phrases and Poetry Aids about the Games plus individual material about Athletics, Gymnastics, Swimming and Diving. Ideas have been included In case they want to create a Commonwealth Booklet or want to fly out to Australia. Finally two former SAT questions have also been added Record Breakers plus Trainers and Try-out. They both come with ideas and a sample answers I prepared.

Fire and Fireworks!!

Fire and Fireworks!!

(0)
Over the years I have encouraged children to write about fires with a different emphasis at times. The first two sheets were created following a strike by the fireman and the army were using their green goddess fire engines - current event. The short story was written by me. Six of the sheets have a strong history connection - the Fire of London and the Gun Powder plot during the reign of the Stuarts. The two sheets on fire in the countryside deal with the every day problem of fires which can occur on very hot days in the summer. Three poem aids are included. The first two deal with fires the third deals with fireworks. Over the years I had a number of interesting poems to read.
