In this section we have included resources which you may find useful to use at home if your child is in key stage 1 or 2. They included talk and writing activities which could be used if your child has completed their remote learning or they may support that learning. The resources may require some adult input but a number of our older children will be able to use them independently.
Below you will find:
1. Film Talk for Writing:
These slides show a short extract from a film broken up into many images.
Here are some ideas that you could do with your child:
2. Language Prompt Cards
These cards are designed to help children understand the meaning of some of the words we use in Literacy sessions, like 'simile' or 'adverb'. If your child is writing, you may find them useful to have onscreen or on the table in front of them. They may help you to find other examples when you are reading with your child or think of other alternatives when writing.
3. Synonym Circles
Synonym Circles is a resource that can be used to find a range of words with a similar meaning - a synonym. Again, these could be used onscreen to refer to or printed off for table-top use. They are really useful to encourage children to learn new words in their writing.
