The focus of this pack is to provide the learners with authentic and relevant purposes for using language.
Based on Autumn/Halloween, these resources/activities and suggested learning experiences have been planned to help the learners develop language through writing forms, grammar and structure.
This topic provides opportunities to explore various writing forms within a supportive climate.
There are 8 PowerPoint presentations that deal with the topic and provide an introduction to the topic , developing writing activities, as well as assessment. I have included some topic based maths , topic based handwriting as well as a simple art task. This cross curricular approach ensures that children enjoy and engage in inter disciplinary learning.
The presentations include:
Seasons : A simple introduction to place the learning into context
Writing an Autumn Report ( non -chronological report)
A Week in Autumn ( Poetry with a grammar focus)
Halloween - A Revolting Recipe - writing instructions
Halloween Literacy Bundle - variety of language tasks
Autumn Handwriting ( to be used with interactive board for modelling handwriting)
Autumn Maths ( number, handling data and some area activities) with answer slides
There are also some online links provided within the presentations to engage the learners.
This pack will provide a substantial amount of resources for this topic - Autumn/ Halloween as literacy, science, maths and art are woven into the learning experiences.
I have added in several jpg files so teachers can peruse the range of resources that are offered within the pack. The complete pack is contained within the zipped file.
I hope that your learners enjoy the variety of tasks and would be delighted if you provided feedback.
