Differentiated Comprehension - Instructions Year 1/2

(0)
Two versions of the same text - one very basic using GPC words where possible, one with much more detail with year 2 vocabulary (suffixes, adjectives, conjunctions and common exception words). Comprehension questions with two sections - the first which can be answered by all children and the second to be answered by the more able with the more complex text. An assessment grid next to the questions for marking off the three year 2 objectives covered. All children can access the same lesson at significantly different levels. NB - the sheets don’t have any images. I would draw my own before photocopying or the children could decorate the page…

Text for gathering evidence for Year 2 reading objectives

A great time-saver! This is a paragraph designed for the winter. It is a debate about school closures in heavy snow which is an engaging for children. It includes GPC, common exception and poly-syllabic words as well as words with common suffixes. I recorded my children reading the text and marked the words read correctly which then hit numerous objectives on the interim framework both on working towards and working at expected level. I also expanded the work so children then created their own debate regarding school closures in the snow.

A set of workbooks and PowerPoints covering the whole Year 3 Grammar and Punctuation curriculum

(0)
Three workbooks with a range of information and activities covering the Grammar and Punctuation curriculum. The activities are differentiated with challenges and each workbook gets progressively more challenging with reduced scaffolding. There are also some accompanying PowerPoints which link to the pages in the workbooks. I used these workbooks and PowerPoints to teach the grammar and punctuation curriculum and they were also excellent reference books for children to look back through to remind themselves of the different concepts. Less able children completed the first activities whilst more able children moved onto the more difficult work at the bottom of the pages. Writing on the PowerPoints has been left to show examples and can be deleted by clicking on the writing. I hope this is helpful. I found it very useful and was great evidence for coverage!

Phonics alien words practice

Phonics alien words practice

(0)
Reading a selection of alien words and using more difficult sounds to create own words to practise. The adult who assesses the child will need to make a note in the space provided of the sounds that they are struggling with. The child can then use those sounds with an adult or on their own to create their own alien words. I have used this with a complete sound chart on the back.

Blending and Segmenting to make words and sentences three worksheets - Year 1

Simple worksheet with the six objects listed at the bottom so you know what you need to draw in the boxes before you photocopy them. In the first six boxes the children must look at the picture and complete the basic sentence by spelling the final word using the sounds at the bottom. In the final box, the children must try to read the final word and draw their own picture of the object. There are three sheets. I haven’t tried these yet so I hope they are useful!

The story is about a Monkey who wants something just because his friend has it. He gives up his time trying to get it instead of being happy with what he has already. Great for PHSE or assembly. Text included. Questions for a comprehension or class discussion included. Assessment grid relating to the interim framework included. The story stops with the monkey needing to make a decision. The children in my class had to choose how the story should end and some wrote it up for homework. We also wrote a similar story about two bears looking for a cave with the same lesson.

Great for children to practise or to complete independently for assessment. I used these for teaching the properties of the shapes, then later on, each child completed the activity and I took a picture and saved it to their area as evidence for the interim framework. Very simple! These cards are now in the classroom for children to revisit anytime they finish their work. It is good for keeping the knowledge fresh.

General English planning structure for entire year. Yr 1 and 2

This weekly planning can be used week after week with minimal adjustments and can be applied to almost all genres. I have used this in years 2 and 3 successfully. It is a HUGE time saver and since I have followed it, I have seen SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS in my children’s reading and writing. The result is a piece of evidence for reading and writing each week, completed independently by the children and gives them the confidence to take ownership of their targets and work largely independently. It will need to be adapted to suit your class and the type of writing you want to cover.

2 Week Rotation covering – • Responding to feedback • Verbal and written responses to texts demonstrating comprehension • Spelling Patterns • Grammar Rules • Evidence of writing, drafting and editing. Area for recording additional support for children who need it. Handwriting practice completed separately. Minimal tweaking required to apply to any genre. Used last year for year 2 children and got top 10% writing results for SATs. One text required for each 2 week cycle. One comprehension, one spelling activity and one grammar activity also needed. Huge time saver as weekly planning time is small changes to include additional activities (eg. debates for persuasive writing etc)
