  1. Pie Corbett's "Jumpstart Literacy" is full of brilliant starters.

    I have mimed imperative verbs in a charades type way for children to guess. The person who guesses then mimes and so on for how long you want to take. This has worked well with both Year 2 and a Year 3/4 mix.

  3. Agreed.

    Have realised that will have to order this book which doesn't give me much time as Easter school is next Monday. Sorry to ask, but are there any examples from his book you can give me? or just any ideas from anyone would be good. Thanks.

    Thank you ever so much. I'd rather use online ideas then, to be honest, spend yet more of my own money on books. Thanks to those who have helped me, feeling a bit more confident.
  10. There is a disc you can buy with VCOP games on it from Andrell Education. The website is good, I think you can just order stuff straight from it. This will cover your connectives games etc, and you won't have to make a single resource!
