English Lateral Thinking Problems. Find the 'Missing Link'

(0)
This is a fun end of the day activity which can be used for a whole class. The idea is that the children are given the two end words and have to work out which middle (or link) word connects both words to create a new word or phrase. For example: Cauliflower ? Ache ‘Cauliflower blank, blank ache?’ Which word goes in between ‘cauliflower’ and ‘ache’ to make two separate phrases? Solution: Cauliflower Ear Ache This activity encourages the children to think laterally and to draw on their general knowledge to solve the problems. To help you these clues have been written in alphabetical order. These problems are an ideal end of the day activity and can be written on the board or simply read out. For younger children or those that are stuck, try putting the first letter of the link word in to help them. This resource contains over 300 different problems. Some will make even the brightest children think

The complete Year 5 & 6 Spelling List Programme

(0)
This is a unique resource which contains the complete Year 5 and 6 spelling list programme. In 2014 the Year 5 & 6 spelling list was introduced. This contained 100 words that all Year 5 & 6 pupils should be able to spell correctly. This imaginative way of learning and testing these spellings is contained in 8 weekly parts, each including a humorous story setting the 12 words for the week in context. This booklet also contains an additional story assessing the 24 homophones, which many Year 5 and 6 pupils still struggle to use correctly in their writing. Story titles are imaginative and include; 'Vanessa and the Robot Dog,' 'The Story of the Richest Girl in the World, 'Marvo, Crusty and the Incredible Barrel Bet,' and 'Brave Sir John and the Smell of Fear.' to name but a few. This 60 page book is an essential resource for Year 5 and 6 teachers preparing for SATs and also useful for teachers in years 7 and 8 completing catch up programmes. I hope you will enjoy using this resource.
