Summary:Three KS2 teachers share their strategies for starting stories, looking at ways of drawing pupils in, story planning, and developing character and setting.In this teaching support film, teachers from Stratton Primary and Watermoor Primary School discuss the different ways in which they support their pupils in fiction writing.Under the headings of hooks, character, setting and planning, they explain how they use film at the start of lessons, the benefits of story mapping and how to teach pupils to write according to a 5-part plan.They also discuss how to encourage hands-on learning when creating settings by modelling plasticine, and walking and talking like a character to help pupils engage with the process of writing their own stories.
In this film, 4 teachers share their strategies for supporting their KS1 and KS2 pupils in writing non-fiction, focusing on the following text types: discussion, explanation, instruction and recount. Teaching ideas range from pupils learning the rules of different text types through physical actions - a technique that Deputy Head, Peta Blow, calls the VAK (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic) approach - to organising a debate to encourage ideas to flow for discussion texts, getting children to design an imaginary machine to help with writing their explanation texts, and sending pupils off around school to interview teachers about events taking place to provide substance for their recounts.
Three primary teachers share their strategies for using film to support Key Stage 2 literacy by looking at character, colour, sound, setting and symbolism in this CPD resource.At Morden Primary School in London teachers Peta Blow, Andrew Pronger and Anna Diamant regularly use film as a way of supporting literacy.The benefit of using film, particularly those without dialogue, is that every pupil can access the story and it can be explored from the most simplistic level to the most complex.The teachers discuss how they enthuse pupils learning with methods such as playing the soundtrack of the film without pictures, which encourages pupils to infer and deduce what is going on through the music.They also talk about how colour affects the mood and atmosphere of a scene and the key features of settings, which is particularly useful when studying the science fiction genre.
