I used these resources in Year 1 by setting up a crime scene in the classroom. I asked a family police officer to record a video, asking the children to help them with their investigation.
The children then recorded their observations and drew the scene using the Crime Scene Investigation and then completed the suspect sheet.
Also within this pack:
*Official Police Report- children to pretend they are working for the police to write up about the incident.
*Wanted poster template.
*How to Catch a Porridge Thief- Instructional text.
*Questions for Goldilocks.
I hope your children enjoy these resources as much as mine did!
Children get into partners.
Partner 1 is the teacher and they point to the word, partner 2 sounds and blends the word. The 'teacher' listens out for mistakes and helps to correct. Then they swap over so that both children have read every word. Once complete, they put the sound buttons on.
Year 1 money maths lesson, includes:
* Area activities.
*SEN addition sheets.
* Money, numicon, value posters.
*Shopping item cards for the chn to pretend to purchase items.
*SMART notebook input.
This reading incentive has been used successfully in Year 1.
Photos of the children were printed and laminated so that every time they read 10 more times they would visit a new setting which was placed on the wall in a line. Prize stars were placed on particular settings so the children were rewarded for their reading achievements.

*Spelling information insert to go inside the first page of the spelling book.
*ai spellings- Less able and more able version.
*ee, ea spellings- Less able and more able version.
