Y5 Literacy

Discussion in 'Primary' started by rodl, Aug 21, 2011.

  1. Due to difficult personal
    circumstances life is not great at the moment for me. I particularly do not
    want to add any extra stress by being underprepared for the new term. After
    teaching mainly Maths and PPA cover in recent years, I am now to teach a Y5
    Literacy group. I feel so unready for this. If I was asking for one thing it
    would be for someone to be able to simplify the teaching of Literacy. How does
    spelling /word work/sentence work/ gr for writing etc fit in? Are they taught
    as discrete lessons? How many in one week? Is there a way to simplify APP for
    writing and reading? Any help would be appreciated. I am in the twilight of my
    career and really don’t want to struggle with this both for the childrens` and
    my sake. Thankyou.</font>

    There's some planning for year 5 here in resources which will show you examples of weekly work and help get you started:
    https://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Year-5-literacy-planning-6067669/
    Several authoritires have useful planning on their website such as:

    You could always look at the 100 framework series and adapt if you are really stuck:

  5. I usually address these in skills lessons, which we have at the start of every Literacy lesson, and in plenaries, as well as targetting individuals through differentiation and verbal/written feedback in the main activity.
    Yes. I have the APP sheets for each of the children on the table in a folder. They have target sheets with them, which are child friendly, and when the child needs a new target, I take it from the APP and write it in child friendly language on their target sheet. Or, I tell them their target and explain what it means, and they write it down.
