Hello! I am looking for some ideas/resources for my classroom. I am KS2 leader, teaching a Y5/6 class of 31 children. I have a huge range of abilities and personalities in the class and have found this term to be quite challenging as there are many children who need support in some way. I am trying to develop a new approach to teaching this class, as my tried and tested methods don't seem to be getting anywhere! We have decided to take a 'Foundation Stage' approach to the planning for next term, such that the children will have lots of different activities to work on throughout the day in 'areas' of the classroom. This is all to encourage and inspire their writing, particularly the boys. Our topic is WWII and so far we have: the class library, a writing area (for teacher lead activities), a WWII investigation station (hist/geog based activities), an arts area, a role play area and spaces for adult lead basic skills groups. However, our school focus is reading and I want to get this in as much as possible. All the areas so far have some link to reading. I would really like to have an area which is focussed on reading for writing, but I am at a loss as to how to go about this - to ensure it is as exciting and interesting as the other areas. Any suggestions/resources would be great! Thanks!
