To round off the weekend and get you ready for Monday, a research and planning sheet to encourage thoughtful working patterns in your pupils.
It's a basic walk through of how to consider a topic with a focus on having to present research in either a spoken or written format. Possibly a good one to blow up to A3 size to let pupils make changes, mistakes and additions as necessary.
Let me know how you get on using this and whether alterations are needed - it is a very generic sheet so I'd be more than happy to tailor it specifically to reading (fiction or non-fiction), writing or speaking and listening.
Literacy Stars is the creation of a secondary school English teacher who loves nothing better than a good resource and seeing kids enjoy reading and writing.
