I have created a 6 week plan (17 lessons) of whole class reading for year 5 on the book ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo. This has taken me ages! I have included the lesson plans, Smart notebook slides and all the worksheets for starter activities and main independent activites. Each lesson focuses on a different content domain which are clearly labelled. I haven’t included a powerpoint for ‘reading football’ which is a resource from a fellow TES user, nor have I included a book review template which you can find on Twinkl. Any photos have been taken from the internet which I have used for different reading starters - I do not claim those to be my own. The resource would also be suitable for year 6. The resource is designed to be easy to use as the planning is for shared use across a cluster of schools, which is the purpose I have created it for. Do not purchase this resource if you can’t use Smart notebook as this is a huge proportion of the resource, with 141 slides. I hope someone finds it useful!
Smart notebook activity - getting the children to write a short adventure story featuring a mysterious cave. The success criteria is largely based for year 6 children but could be edited for other year groups.
A worksheet I put together for my class when we were writing a science fiction setting. The worksheet has lots of wonderfully strange made up names for places, areas, zones and planets and some good vocabulary to describe the settings. Good for children struggling for ideas!
Worksheet for children to find factors of numbers and helps them understand prime numbers. Ideal for upper KS2.
Ideal for children in year 5/6 when they start to hit puberty and feel like their emotions are all over the place. Helpful information for them to realise they aren't alone. Information is edited from child-line, NSPCC and other websites - plus tips and ideas written by me.
Using this resource, children create a leaflet informing people about a theme park they have designed. This smart note book also has information for children about how to use punctuation for bullet points in a list consistently.
Two Smart notebook files and worksheets for dividing and multiplying using mental methods. Children learn how to divide by 2, 4, 5 and 10 and multiply by 2, 4, 5 and 10 plus a little bit extra on multiplying by 8 and 9. There is also a starter worksheet for children to re-cap on the mental methods of dividing. Ideal for year 5.
A science lesson to help children remember the components that make up blood in the human body. Children can follow a simple recipe and make their own blood. I found the idea from another member on TES and adapted it to suit my class. The children enjoyed it and by the end of the lesson, and for weeks after, could tell me the components in blood and their functions.
A worksheet which is double sided and has common spellings that are often misspelt by children! The children have to write the correct spelling beside it. These are high frequency words that children should be able to spell but often get caught out with.
SATs style questions for children to do whilst the register is being taken in the morning and the afternoon. There are enough worksheets for a week. I will be uploading some more. The questions are either to do with SPAG or maths. It covers lots of different objectives and is good for revision on the lead up to SATs.
An activity to be used with children armed with whiteboards! To help children remember those pesky terms, lots of repetition, good for either a starter, plenary or whenever you need to refresh nouns, verbs, adjectives and verbs.
Activity for children to do on whiteboards for a starter or plenary of a lesson. Useful for year 5 and 6. Includes the answers so children can mark instantly.
