Covering note from Andrew:

The first lesson has a transcript of the video with all the puntuation taken out, then a differentiated solution/task for 2/3 ability groups. The follow up lesson uses a WAGOLL I wrote based on Farther to encourage children to write about our key text (Oliver Twist) but could be adapted to any key text or used stand alone.

Housekeeping points to note – we use LC (Learning Challenge) and are groups are B for basic, A for Advancing and D for deep. I’d love to hear what you think – you’re welcome to use them in courses and/or on your website with an acknowledgement of where they came from.’

First News

I mentioned First News on the course recently and how it can widen out children’s knowledge and understanding of the world. I have now had the opportunity to log into the First News website and have a close look at the resources available. I think they are amazing. Not only are the articles up to date, well presented and curated but the comprehension resources that go with the articles are closely matched to the question types in the new reading SATS. The digital and paper package is available from £305 per year. If your school has the budget, I would thoroughly recommend subscribing. More details here:
