Choosing a Location for a Settlement

Choosing a Location for a Settlement

I created this map so that children can look at the different locations and the nearby physical features in order to decide which location would be best for building a settlement. I also created a worksheet that provides more structure when asking children to consider each location.

BFG Playscript

BFG Playscript

Whilst reading the BFG, 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.

Year 5 Literacy Planning - Tin Forest

Year 5 Literacy Planning - Tin Forest

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'.

Differentiated London Landmarks Resources

Differentiated London Landmarks Resources

I created these resources for a Year 3 lesson on London Landmarks. This was part of a larger unit of work on British Landmarks. The children had to research facts about various London landmarks, completing a table and answering questions. I provided each table with a range of books and information sheets (not included) about London Landmarks. They also had access to laptops to aid them with their research. In this pack, you will find the differentiated tables for children to complete using their research. I have also included the questions for each ability group. The SEN and lowest ability children have got sentence starters to help them write about what they found. I have also included a sheet I used with an EAL child, on which they had to match the images of London landmarks to their names. The children enjoyed finding out about different London landmarks and were telling me facts for weeks. I hope this pack can be useful to you too. =)

3 Weeks of Year 3 Literacy Planning (The BFG)

3 Weeks of Year 3 Literacy Planning (The BFG)

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. =)

BFG Speech Worksheets

BFG Speech Worksheets

A set of resources made to aid the teaching of speech alongside reading 'The BFG'. 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.

Describing Characters Using Evidence From text

Describing Characters Using Evidence From text

During a Year 5 Unit on 'Aquila' by Andrew Norriss, I wanted to encourage my higher ability pupils to look for evidence in the text to support their character descriptions. The first activity asks the children to come up with words to describe either Tom or Geoff. For each characteristic, they must then find the evidence in the text, noting down a quotation and the page number it was found on. After this, I asked the children to compare Tom and Geoff including evidence from the text. I provided them with an example that compares the two teachers instead. This way, they could see how I expected the work to be laid out. I have included the initial table for recording evidence from the text as well as the example I gave them for the main task.

BFG Character Description

BFG Character Description

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.

Comparing Hindu and Christian Creation Stories

Comparing Hindu and Christian Creation Stories

This worksheet can be used within an RE topic on Creation Stories. I created a Venn diagram for children to compare the creation stories of the Hindu and Christian religions. Some children will be able to do this without the prompts at the side but I have included them for the lower ability children.

Features of Non-Fiction Texts

Features of Non-Fiction Texts

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.

Stone Age Problems

Stone Age Problems

I created these resources while teaching the Year 3 history topic, 'The Stone Age'. The aim of this lesson was to be able to identify problems and challenges faced by Stone Age people. During the first part of this lesson, the class were split into boys and girls. Each group explored the school grounds with an adult. Scattered around the premises were Problem Cards (included in this pack) explaining various dilemmas that Stone Age men and women would have dealt with. The children loved this activity and when they returned to class, they were able to discuss the similarities and differences between the lives of Stone Age men and Stone Age women. Most children then wrote a diary entry from the point of view of a Stone Age person, explaining the problems they had faced, how it would have made them feel and how they would have dealt with them. The lower ability children used the other resource in this pack and they began by sorting Stone Age problems and Modern Day problems.

Story Feelings Graph

Story Feelings Graph

This graph template can be used by children to plot a character's feelings throughout a story. This makes a great starter in Literacy lessons. I've used it successfully alongside several videos from http://www.literacyshed.com/.

BFG Alphabetical Order Activity

BFG Alphabetical Order Activity

I created these resources whilst reading The BFG 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.
