HYPHENS   - word bank of hyphenated words KS2 (grammar and writing)(Alphabet list)

HYPHENS - word bank of hyphenated words KS2 (grammar and writing)(Alphabet list)

During moderation, using HYPHENS was one area of writing most of my children always found hard to 'tick off'. So to help them I compiled this hyphenated word bank. I left a space in each letter so they could add words of their own to it. But having them in front of them has definitely helped them to get hyphenated words in to their writing more. Some of them had to be explained to them for meaning, but now they love trying to fit some of the more unusual ones in to their writing. They also add words from their reading books to the list. I found this very useful as there isn't much on hyphens out there to help us teachers! Enjoy! Check out my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/richbreeds

Place Value Assessment sheet KS2

Place Value Assessment sheet KS2

I used this for my mixed year 5/6 class to assess the first week of place value. I chop them up and stick in books- then the child will tick which statements they think they can do in the first column and I tick the second column. There is also a space for next steps. My class found it useful.
