A series of 5 Relationships lesson plans based on the PHSE Association's Education Programme of Study* based on an illustrated children's book 'Zig Zag and the Giant Adventure'. The book is an adventure story but also quietly and sensitively deals with issues children may face in a family break-up or arguments with their friends. In the book her parents’ ‘shouty’ voices downstairs leads 6 year old Emily on an adventure with Zig Zag, the Stripy Spotosaurus and her ‘Toy Family’. They encounter a sad princess and two giants arguing outside a castle. *The use of the PHSE Association Programme of Study is recommended by the DfE in its policy statement: Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education March 2017.
Very effective tool for learning the digraphs and trigraphs the children need to know for the Phonics Screening Check. These Sound Cards cover the Letters and Sounds Phase 3 and Phase 5 digraphs and trigraphs and can be used with any Phonics programme you are using in school. Sound Cards are provided on a downloadable PDF which can be printed double-sided onto card and then cut out into individual Sound Cards. They can be laminated for extra durability and reused year after year. • Each child can have their own set to keep at school and/or take home. As the children learn a new digraph/trigraph in class you can give them the relevant Sound Card to add to their collection. Or you can give them all out as a revision tool for the Phonics Screening Check. Parents can go through the cards with the children at home. • Individual sound cards can be used more flexibly and more effectively than simply having a sheet of illustrated sounds. • Children’s retention of the sounds by using these cards is better than rote learning with the sounds in a fixed order all on one page. The PDFs can be used as Sound Mats in class in addition to, or as an alternative to, individual Sound Cards
