Ink Shading Techniques
misspoolescoolschool

A worksheet to practise artistic techniques in ink (hatching, cross-hatching and stippling). I recommend that the children use black fineliner pens if possible, as ballpoint pens tend to be a bit too smudgy.

A visual aid to remember the order of speech marks. On the speech burger goes 1. The bottom bun - The opening speech marks (66) 2. The burger - The speech 3.

Identify Features of a News Article

A funny news article about a fictional school which decides to serve rat meat for school dinners, yuck!

Doubling and Halving Magic Number Quiz
misspoolescoolschool

Doubling and Halving Magic Number Quiz

(2)
A simple yet engaging ‘trick’ for any age or ability, I’ve used this worksheet with KS1, 2 and 3. All the child needs to do is write any number in the star and then double and halve it according to the instructions, so this can be easily differentiated with different sizes of numbers. Why not challenge the more able pupils by giving special conditions for the starter numbers they come up with? ‘Must be odd’, ‘All the digits must add up to 17’, ‘No zeros’ etc. Hours of fun!
