This is a WAGOLL that I wrote for a Survival Story mini topic in English. It is aimed at Year 5 children, and includes examples of skills we have learned in previous English lessons, these include (but are not limited to) parenthesis, figurative language, dialogue sentences, use of commas, fronted adverbials, subordinating conjunctions and relative clauses.
Included in this file is:
A plain version of the WAGOLL
A highlighted version - key skills are highlighted to make it easier to analyse/to differentiate for lower ability.
A WAGOLL analysis sheet created by me.
A WAGOLL analysis flipchart created by me.
Here is an excerpt from the survival story:
When he finished speaking, I felt the first drop of rain hit me. The droplets were huge, looking like bullets falling into the ocean. Then a gust of wind threw some of them at me, making me cough and splutter. My heart felt as though it would explode from my chest as the ship lurched to the side once more. How would we ever make it through this storm?
I heard my dad shout frantically, “Hold on!” and a wave of water crashed into the side and spilled over onto the ship. Suddenly the deck was covered in water, and it was quickly rising up against my legs. I didn’t know what to do. My sister (the brave and sensible one of our family) tried to wade through the water to our dad, who was trying to keep control of the boat. The white sails were billowing like pillowcases in the wind and the wooden sides were slippery and damp.
This resource is 2 lessons on Addition and Subtraction Multi-Step problems.
Some of the problems are 2 and 3-step, some are even more!
The answers are in the files with the resources. They can be written on the backs of the cards as a form of self-assessment.
Lesson 1 - focus on using the Steps to Success to figure out the calculations needed.
Lesson 2 - using the Steps to Success to represent the problems as Bar Models and writing their own word problems using given calculations. Also a small focus on Perimeter (this was a gap in our assessment) and answering a multi-step problem using perimeter skills.
TWO SHEETS ARE NOT INCLUDED - these are detailed below.
Lesson 1 -
Lower Ability (Emerging) - Year 4 Two-Step addition and subtraction problems. (Not included - used a pre-made resource from Twinkl.)
Middle Ability (Developing) - Multi-Step Problems Developing Lesson 1.doc (Included)
Higher Ability (Secure) - Multi-Step Problems Secure Lesson 1.doc (Included)
Lesson 2 -
Lower Ability (Emerging) - Some Two-Step problems, some simpler multi-step problems to work towards Year 5 Curriculum - Emerging Word Problems Lesson 2.doc (Included)
Middle Ability (Developing) - Not included - use a pre-made resource from Twinkl.
Higher Ability (Secure) - Multi-Step Problems Addition and Subtraction Secure Lesson 2 - Included.
A flipchart containing Starters and Modelled Questions for both lessons is also included. This is on ActivInspire.
Originally written for a Y5 class, so the WAGOLL contains examples of various Y5 writing objectives. Could be tailored towards Y4 or Y6.
Our focus is on suffixes, prefixes and homophones, so there are examples of these within the setting description.
Some words/phrases magpied from the Grammarsaurus.
There are also examples of:
Use of 5 senses
There is a highlighted version, where various words and phrases are highlighted, so that children can see where examples of the writing objectives have been used.
This resource is a WAGOLL Information text written by me, based on The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan. It includes skills we have been learning about in Year 5, such as: fronted adverbials, colons, subheadings, conjunctions and commas.
This is a WAGOLL, written by me, for a mini topic on Antarctic Animals Information Texts. This particular text is on Emperor Penguins, which was what the LA children were writing about. It contains examples from the Y5 National Curriculum, including parenthesis, subordinate clauses, relative clauses, expanded noun phrases, colons and semi-colons.
Please write in the Reviews if you spot any mistakes!
4 weeks worth of Activ Inspire flip charts for Vocabulary lessons.
This has been a huge focus in my school recently, to improve the vocabulary skills of our children. These words are set quite high, in line with the new National Curriculum. Originally aimed at Y5 children. They include words such as: bizarre, benevolent, lopsided and intact.
They contain 5 words for each week. Each word contains a slide for: introducing the word, having the word in a sentence (context), showing an image and definition of the word, having the word in different contexts, having the word in a familiar context (may need adapting for your children), and a linked SPaG question.
Contains many opportunities for reading, writing and SPaG links.
NEW - now contains a 'potato' activity for each word (see cover image). The children are given 3 sentences with the new vocab words in, but the words have been replaced with the word 'potato'. The children have to use the sentence to figure out what the new word is.
ACTIV INSPIRE FLIPCHARTS.
This is a whole introduction lesson to finding fractions of amounts using bar models.
Activity is differentiated, with some Reasoning questions for each group.
Flipchart contains an Addition Reasoning starter, as well as clear models and images, questions to deepen understanding, a chance to check children’s learning and a plenary.
Includes numerators of 1 and more.
NB: We use a school font so I have had to change it for TES. Apologies if there are any that I have missed.
There are 2 model Year 5 texts included in this resource.
One is told from Ayesha’s point of view. (Oranges in No Man’s Land).
One is told from her little brother, Latif’s point of view.
We had a big focus on prefixes (un, mis, dis, de, re) and homophones.
The prefixes in the first are highlighted yellow.
The prefixes in the second are highlighted yellow and the homophones are highlighted green.
There are also examples of other Y5 writing objectives used throughout both examples, including: semi-colons, parenthesis, subordinating conjunctions, a variety of sentence types, direct speech, paragraphs, fronted adverbials, effective vocabulary, etc.
A huge bundle of resources linked to Street Child by Berlie Doherty. This is a story based in Victorian times about a boy who loses his family and survives on the streets.
It includes work on: narrative writing, report writing, commas, subordinating conjunctions, reading comprehension, diary entries, etc.
This bundle contains 2 of my most popular resources - 2 lessons on Addition and Subtraction, using a Varied Fluency, Reasoning & Problem-Solving approach (including the use of bar models) and 2 lessons on multi-step Addition and Subtraction word problems, which are very relevant to the new SATs Reasoning papers. These resources contain worksheets and flipcharts.
As an added extra, I have also included a mixed bundle of 16 resources, including worksheets created by me for Place Value, Roman Numerals, Calculations, etc.
This is a quick 5 minute activity where children need to answer as many questions as possible. There are a range of times tables, related facts, decimals, squares, square root, etc questions aimed at Y5 and Y6. We are currently using these for our Battle of the Blues times tables challenge, where children initially get 5 minutes to complete the sheet and they then need to do it in 3 minutes, 2 minutes, and so on.
Created from scratch by me. Fingers crossed the answers are correct - please let me know in the reviews if not :)
A selection of differentiated success criteria. E = Emerging, D = Developing, S = Secure.
This selection includes:
A survival story
Non Chronological report
The selection links to the English Y5 Curriculum.
Differentiated Arithmetic Sessions.
Most of the flip charts contain a teaching input for Arithmetic (often with models and images) and then questions that are differentiated 3 ways. There are also answers on most of the flip charts.
Apologies if the font doesn’t come out right - we use a school-wide font!
This is a set of 2 lessons based on short multiplication, moving from the basics of multiplication to working out more difficult short multiplication questions.
The first lesson focuses mainly on the process and fluency.
The second lesson moves onto Reasoning and Problem-Solving.
There are 4 activities across both lessons.
Children who are less confident should start with Activity 1 in the first lesson, then move to Activity 2.
Children who are working at Greater Depth should start with Activity 3 in the first lesson, then move onto Activity 4.
There is scope for children to skip activities if they make accelerated progress, i.e. start on Activity 1 but then move onto Activity 3.
There are no repeated questions on the sheets.
The lessons are on ActivInspire flip charts (Promethean) and the worksheets are structured as strips in Microsoft Word, so they are editable.
This is 2 lessons based on the White Rose Hub Addition and Subtraction. This is my own work, with my own created questions, using White Rose + other resources for inspiration.
The flip charts are Promethean, ActivInspire. If you do not have this program, I will be adding PDF files on Monday.
The lesson structure is as follows:
Lesson 1 - Starter - Use this to assess where the children are at for addition and subtraction. They can mark their answers themselves. (on next slide).
Go through and model how to answer some of the questions.
Lesson 2 - Reasoning starter, than with some modelled questions that are reasoning/problem solving based.
There are 4 sheets for the 2 days - Sheets 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Sheet 1 = Fluency, moving to Varied Fluency and some Reasoning.
Sheet 2 = A bit of fluency, moving quickly through Varied Fluency and Reasoning.
Sheet 3 = A bit of varied fluency, moving to Reasoning and Problem-solving
Sheet 4 - Reasoning and Problem-Solving
Children begin Lesson 1 on one sheet and then move onto another for Lesson 2. e.g. a child may begin on Sheet 1 for Lesson 1, and move onto Sheet 2 for Lesson 2. A child may begin on Sheet 3 for Lesson 1 and move onto Sheet 4 for Lesson 2.
If children make accelerated progress during Lesson 1, they can move onto a more difficult sheet for Lesson 2. (i.e. Sheet 1 to Sheet 3).
There are a selection of different question types on the sheets, including models and images, bar models, missing numbers, word problems and puzzles.
The worksheets are in strips on Word, so that they are editable. They are on strips so they can be stuck on one side of the page and working out can be shown on the other side.
There are 4 lessons included in this.
All extracts are downloadable from www.lovereading4kids.co.uk (Free, signup needed) - Extracts are copyrighted to the authors, which is why they are not included in this download.
The lessons are based on extracts from the following books:
Fiction - Once - Morris Gleitzman (more suitable for Y6)
Fiction - Skychasers - Emma Carroll
Non-Fiction - Chronologica - The Incredible Years that Defined History (difficult text, very good for vocabulary)
Fiction - Twister (very accessible content but more difficult themes)
We have found that using extracts also helps to develop an enthusiasm for reading.
Each lesson contains a flipchart (ActivInspire) and SATs-style questions. The flipcharts contain activities on fluency, prediction and vocabulary and some have questions to model. Some also contain Grammar SATs questions as a quick activity!
Final lesson in a Mixed Numbers and Improper fractions unit. Combination of converting and calculating. Includes Fluency (Practise) questions, Use & Apply questions and Reasoning questions. Range of different questions includes calculations, word problems, missing number questions and problem solving.
This is an ActivInspire flipchart to help children to revise for their Arithmetic SATs test.
It should be taught after children have learnt about fractions and how to add them together.
Includes a teaching activity, independent work and answers.
This resource includes some activities and a flipchart, focussing on revision of calculations (from previous learning) and then moving onto showing fractions in a visual way, to help children develop their understanding of what a fraction actually is. This links to my Mixed Calculation Revision sheets resource.
