Identify Features of a News Article

Identify Features of a News Article

(4)
A funny news article about a fictional school which decides to serve rat meat for school dinners, yuck! I used this for my whole class to read and then work together to identify features: rhyme, repetition, alliteration etc. They can do this as a whole class, in small groups or individually, using the space on the worksheet to write down their observations. I used this with Y5/6 but it could be suitable for a variety of ages and abilities, depending on the specific features you choose to focus on. If you love this resource, please leave me a review!

Speechburger (Speech Marks Inverted Commas)
misspoolescoolschoolmisspoolescoolschool

Speechburger (Speech Marks Inverted Commas)

(3)
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. The salad and toppings - The punctuation e.g. comma, exclamation mark etc. 4. The top bun - The closing speech marks (99) I tell the children to imagine putting a burger together, so that they remember to start from the bottom and not from the top. Good resource to print out in colour, fill in and display on the wall or in their Literacy books for reference. If you love it, please leave me a review!

PSHE Friendship Tokens

(2)
Friendship tokens for children to colour in and cut out and exchange with one another - for example, when someone shared with them, when someone plays with them in the playground, when someone is kind to them. I used these during SEAL / PSHE lessons. Formatted with easy-to-cut guidelines for the paper trimmer! Choose to cut these square, to save time, or round, so they resemble MONEY! If you love it, please leave a review!
Ink Shading Techniques

Ink Shading Techniques

(1)
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.
Doubling and Halving Magic Number Quiz
misspoolescoolschoolmisspoolescoolschool

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! If you love it, please leave me a review!
Sixty Minute Clock Face Cutout

Sixty Minute Clock Face Cutout

(1)
Print onto card for children to colour and cut out. I usually have them colour the 'past' side one colour and the 'to' side another. The hands attach with split pins and the clocks can then be used as a learning tool in future lessons.
Pencil Art Worksheet
misspoolescoolschoolmisspoolescoolschool

Pencil Art Worksheet

(3)
A worksheet to help children practice pencil skills for art such as shading and blending. I usually do this over a double lesson with Year 4 or above, and I emphasise the need to work very, very slowly and carefully, focusing on correct pencil grip and varied pressure. They love it when I tell them this is how ‘real artists’ use pencils! If you love it, please leave me a review!
