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 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!
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.
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.
A bundle of WAGOLLS and example model texts focussed on Year 5 writing objectives.
These objectives include:
using different sentence types and openers
and many more.
The different text types include:
2 Information texts (Emperor Penguins and The Lost Thing)
2 Setting descriptions (wartorn city and woodland)
Adventure story (Survival)
2 diary entries (different points of view)
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 first introductory lesson to percentages for children who have very little prior knowledge. It contains an ActivInspire notebook, which makes use of visual models and images, questions to deepen understanding, and contains an activity page with activities for the higher and middle ability groups.
Higher group = using numicon to make a hundred square and recording the FDP equivalence.
Middle group = using hundred squares to colour in assorted percentages.
Lower group = using hundred squares to cut up and show assorted percentages. Clear speaking & listening link between fractions and decimals.
Included is a guidance sheet for the lower group and some small, blank hundred squares.
This was planned for a Y5 class and has a Reasoning Focus.
The flipchart goes through different hundred squares and which FDP are shown. Children have to explain whether they are correct or incorrect and explain why.
The independent activity starts with a Fluency question (Draw a hundred square into your books and colour 50% in blue, 1/10 in red, etc), then moves onto Reasoning. There is a Problem Solving question for the Secure (S) group.
S = Secure = HA
D = Developing = MA
E = Emerging = LA
Differentiation by task.
The flipchart also contains Reasoning Sentence Starters and some slides specifically for the Secure groups (called Teal table in my class), as these move away from just 'hundred' squares onto squares of different sizes. (60cm squared, 80 cm squared).
Good for Maths talking and discussion and to show what children know about percentages and about equivalent FDP.
You could change the names on the worksheets to teachers/students in your class.
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 :)
There are 5 weeks of Vocabulary flip charts in this bundle. Each flipchart was made by me, and contains the following sequence: Look at the word, discuss what it means, visual image of the word, meaning, sentences, contextualised sentence, activity (often SPaG linked).
There are 5 words per week for the children to learn.
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.
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.
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.
As part of a reading project to promote a love for reading, we have been basing some of our reading skills sessions on extracts from popular novels.
All of the extracts needed for these questions can be found on www.lovereading4kids.co.uk
There are 12 sets of questions using SATs-style language.
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 an Arithmetic paper based on the KS2 2018 SATs.
I have tweaked 2 of the (repeated skill) questions based on some key questions that were not on the 2018 test, therefore they might be on the 2019 test.
Let me know if any of the answers are incorrect!
This is a fun and engaging way to introduce mixed numbers and improper fractions.
It involves the use of MINI jammy dodger biscuits (they need to be mini to work with this lesson, as they come in packs of 4... usually £1 a pack and there are 7 mini packs in a big bag. You could do this with just one or two packs!)
My children always enjoy this lesson. It involves finding out the answer to the question "Is it possible to have 5 quarters?"
And of course they get to eat the biscuits at the end :)
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.
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.
