Use a pulse-raising activity to inspire pupils to generate sentences back in class, says Julianne Britton…
Get children active while improving their understanding of verbs and adverbs. This lesson is most suitable for LKS2 and focuses on generating verbs and adverbs to be used in different ways within an extended piece of writing.
Depending on your timetable and the structure of your lessons, you may need to teach this over two sessions.
Originally this lesson was delivered as part of a scheme of work based on Cliffhanger by Jacqueline Wilson, but it can easily be used alongside other texts or as a standalone lesson.
