BFG Playscript

BFG Playscript

(1)
Whilst reading the BFG by RoaldDahl, I wanted to teach the children about play scripts so I rewrote part of Chapter 13 as a script. The children then had chance to read from the script, acting out different roles. They were also able to discuss and identify features of a play script using this resource. There are two versions of the script; one is aimed at the lower ability children and the language used has been simplified (no “BFG speak”). The other two worksheets in this pack are to help the children to write their own BFG play script. Again, the two worksheets are slightly different; one has the pictures of the characters whereas the other does not. I hope this can be a useful resource.
Play Script Lesson Starter

Play Script Lesson Starter

(0)
I created this resource as a starter for a lesson on writing play scripts. I wanted children to recap what they already knew about the layout and punctuation of play scripts. Each page of this document was used for a different table group. I cut out the individual words and punctuation marks then provided them to the children in envelopes. They had to work in groups to order the words and punctuation so that they made sense as part of a play script. The children enjoyed this fun starter and it was also a good opportunity for me to assess their prior knowledge and understanding.
BFG Speech Worksheets

BFG Speech Worksheets

(0)
A set of resources made to aid the teaching of speech alongside reading ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl. One worksheet shows Sophie and The BFG with empty speech bubbles so children can think about what they might say to each other. This is useful for lower ability children who are not yet ready to use speech marks in their writing. Another worksheet shows Sophie and The BFG with completed speech bubbles so that children can “pop” the speech bubbles and write the dialogue with speech marks. The third worksheet in the pack also allows children to “pop” the speech bubbles but gives them a template within which to write the dialogue using speech marks.

BFG Alphabetical Order Activity

I created these resources whilst reading The BFG by Roald with my Year 3 class. The task is for the children to put some of the BFG’s nonsense words into their very own dictionary. The children can cut out and stick the words in order alphabetically then make up their own meanings for the words. In this pack, there are several different worksheets aimed at different ability groups. Some have more words and some have the alphabet included at the top of the page as support. Also, included in this pack is a worksheet where the meanings of some words are given and the children have to match the definition to the nonsense word. My Year 3 class really enjoyed making up their own definitions.

3 Weeks of Year 3 Literacy Planning (The BFG)

(0)
Three weeks of Literacy planning based upon 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl. All lesson outcomes are differentiated at least 3 ways. Obviously, this planning is based upon the requirements of the class I had at the time and may need altering before you use it with your own class. However, it might be a good starting point if you are planning a Literacy unit on The BFG. =)

Two worksheets where children can identify the features of a letter. The worksheet for the lower ability children has a word bank to aid them in labeling the features. The highest ability children could identify and colour the features of a letter then create their own key.

Year 5 Literacy Planning - Tin Forest

(3)
Two weeks of Literacy planning based on 'Tin Forest' by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. Although this is a short picture book with few words, my Year 5 class loved studying this text. The first week looks more at narrative writing with the second week looking more at non-fiction writing. This text also linked well with our Topic on 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'.

BFG Character Description

BFG Character Description

(0)
I created this resource to use with my Year 3 class when we were reading the BFG. The first worksheet has space for the child to design and draw their own giant with lines next to it so they can write a description. The second worksheet has a smaller box for the drawing of the giant. Next to this box is a fact file which the children can fill in and underneath this are lines for the children to write their character descriptions. The second worksheet is generic so could be used for creating a profile of any character.

Features of Non-Fiction Texts

(0)
These worksheets can be used when teaching children about the features of non-fiction texts e.g. index, glossary, captions, subheadings etc. The first of the two worksheets allows children to write about each feature. I used the second worksheet with lower ability children. They had to match the feature to its definition.

BFG Newspaper Template

(0)
These worksheets were created for a lesson in which the children were writing a newspaper report about the army helping to defeat the giants at the end of 'The BFG' by Roald Dahl. The first worksheet is a newspaper template with lines upon which the children can write. The second worksheet is a simplified newspaper template to be used with lower ability groups. They have space to write a short paragraph using the 5Ws as well as a box where they can draw a picture of the event.

Example Letters from 'Cliffhanger' by Jacqueline Wilson

(0)
‘Cliffhanger’ by Jacqueline Wilson is a great book that the children always love to read. I was teaching a unit on Letter Writing and wanted to link it to the text we were reading as a class. I created these two example letters from the characters of Giles and Jake. They model using different types of punctuation as well as informal language. The children’s task was to write their own letters in reply to these characters.

They can then make sure they have answered all of the questions. the second resource is a prompt to remind children when to begin a new paragraph.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Japanese Lyrics)

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Japanese Lyrics)

(0)
Every two years, our school puts on a Summer Carnival where each year group gives a performance based around a different country. Last year, Year 3's country was Japan. The children learnt how to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' in Japanese. They also performed a contemporary dance and wore traditional Japanese clothes and accessories. It was a fantastic event and the children loved every minute of it. I have uploaded the lyrics in case you would like to try something similar at your school. This link takes you to the music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGgOKEaMWZU
