I will be beginning my NQT year in Year 6 in September. The school is adopting a topic based approach for the first time, with Literacy being taught mostly through the theme/topic. English skills will however be taught discreetly 4 days a week, in 5 -20 minute lessons. I was hoping to build a bank of resources for these lessons, with a range of ideas for 5, 10, 15 & 20 minute lessons that I can dip into without (too much) prior planning. Ideally, I would like the lessons to be short and snappy and quite fun for the pupils, almost like games. If anyone could point me in the direction of any useful resources, websites, books, tried and tested ?old favourites? etc. I would be very grateful. Thank you in advance!
