A Warm Welcome!
Welcome! 'keystage2literacy.co.uk...' is a webpage dedicated to all those hints and tips taught and learnt in the classroom, with a particular focus on Literacy and the Upper Key Stage 2 curriculum. This site is aimed at new and existing teachers who would like to brush up on their subject knowledge or find some new ideas for use in their classroom. This site is also ideal for parents to find out what their children are doing in class, and for children to explain to them. The process of learning should be one that is shared between a teacher, a parent and a child- this site hopes to deliver you a mutual ground upon which everyone can understand what is expected in the 21st century classroom.
'This is the first time I have visited your site and I have to say thank you- it's a great site, with some really useful ideas. I admire people like you who take the time to share your ideas and expertise. Good on you- and keep going! I will be using some of your early morning activities on Monday!'
RECOMMENDATION OF THE MONTH- SEPTEMBER 2013
After a lovely long summer away, the engines are fired up for another academic year. To help you along the way, I try to find some inspirational Literacy websites. You can find all of the previous recommendations archived in the Monthly Recommendations tab in the menu on the left. This month is an offering courtesy of a Tumblr user. 'Writing Prompts' has some fantastic starting points for writing and range from the straight forward to the extraordinary 'think outside the box' sort of writing. There are certainly a lot of ideas here that will extend your more able writers in Years 5 and 6. I wish you all a fabulous year ahead whether you are a teacher, parent or student and hope that you will return regularly to the site for more updates!
