Year 6 Writing Checklist

(0)
A prompt sheet for Year 6 writers to help them include many of the features required for the end of Key Stage Two writing assessment. I’ve found it useful to give each child a laminated copy to keep in their writing book. Each feature can be ticked off with a whiteboard pen as they use it in their writing.

Adverb Sorting

Adverb Sorting

(0)
Sets of adverbs for children to cut up and sort by type. The adverbs may then be used to practise extending sentences. I like to encourage my class to challenge their partner to come up with a sentence using one or more of the adverbs. This resource provides lots of opportunities for really practical whiteboard sentence practice.

Year 6 Spelling Bee Competition

A Year 6 Spelling Bee competition plan based on the Year 5/6 statutory word list and Upper Key Stage Two spelling patterns. The competition runs over three consecutive days with a big final in the school hall on the Friday. This plan has been written for a two form entry school where the two Year 6 classes compete against each other in the final. It may be adapted for bigger or smaller schools. We have had a lot of success with this over many years and the children love it!
