  4. Ever used Alan Peat materials - boxing clever idea would work well for you, and could introduce differentiation through his 'exciting sentence types' which range in complexity. I did this not so long ago and achieved outstanding. As its organic in creating setting, characters, problem etc and the kids generate it through pulling pictures from a bag/box, they really buy into it and are highly enthused.
    We used the technique to 'skeleton plot' our story and then the children orally reheased the parts of the story using patterned language and those expected exciting sentences, this obviously hit speaking and listening targets and enabled children to dramatise the story, become familiar with it before writing.
    Good luck with the observation!
