we have used this resource with our Y6 class as small activities between end of year performance practice. They are interesting and of a length that can be completed without spending a whole lesson on them. They have been brilliant and the children have loved them. In their books it looks like we have spent ages working on Shakespeare which we have but in small slots of time. Thank you

I used this resources in my guided reading and writing lessons last year with a more able streamed English class. They loved it! I am sharing the planning document and some of the pdf files in a network PD sessions later this term with colleagues from several primary schools in the Goldfields region of WA Australia. Thanks for the effort to put something like this together.
