Literacy pack containing chapter- by – chapter activities based on the first seven chapters of the book The Witches by Roald Dahl, plus associated grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and spelling activities. There are ten worksheets in all, comprising:
- 6 x reading comprehension worksheets (including extension activities)
- 2 x vocabulary / grammar / punctuation worksheets
- 2 x spelling worksheets
For each of the seven chapters there is a comprehension / guided reading worksheet which also contains a reading / spelling / writing challenge. (Chapters 6 and 7 are combined as chapter 6 is very short.) There are 25 marks available in each comprehension, allowing pupils to work out their percentage score. Pupils could do the reading comprehension worksheets as independent tasks or as part of whole class revision.
Alternatively, each worksheet could be used as part of a guided reading session, reading assessment or whole class teaching.
Each Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation worksheet is double A4 – sized, with space for pupils’ answers. Pupils could do the worksheet as an independent task or as part of whole class revision. There are 25 marks available – which again allows pupils to find their percentage score!
All activities are created in Word so can be edited to your own taste.
