I've been teaching in KS1 & EYFS for five years in schools in both Scotland and England. I really enjoy making resources, especially with the increase of cartoons and pointless illustrations appearing on more and more resources which I find online. I try to keep resources clear and simple, making them accessible and attractive to children- and teachers too!

These are word and picture cards which would be great on wall displays or to use as table prompts when children are writing. I used these when exploring the Katie Morag stories with my class.

George and the Dragon Illustration and Writing Activity

(0)
This a simple version of the story of Saint George and the Dragon. I designed this activity to be used by Key Stage 1 children, therefore the language is not too complex. This could easily be used by less able children on KS2. This document has the story written in order for the children to read, and boxes for them to create appropriate illustrations in as they read it. At the end, there is space for the children to give the story a proper ending; this is a great opportunity for them to stretch their imaginations and really get in to creative writing- without them having to write a whole story. This is a very old story and so no one really knows what happened in the end, this really frees the children up to a whole host of ideas. I used this to great success with my Year 2 class during our Myths and Legends topic.

After introducing the digraph 'ow' as in owl, this is a nice way to get the children thinking about which words they will regularly use this for. Section 1 is a finding the word activity, followed by a chance for children to make up their own sentences.
'nk' phonic consolidation activity

'nk' phonic consolidation activity

After introducing the 'nk' digraph, this activity sheet has some opportunities for reinforcement, as well as a section on alphabetical order. The final section is an opportunity for the children to work on sentence work. This is an editable resource which you may choose to differentiate for different ability levels.
