Two daily calendars have been created for schools to use.
The first is a Figure of Speech Calendar. It has a different figure of speech for each day of the school year. Each day a new figure of speech could be introduced to support the development of children’s language. Pre-Teaching Vocabulary can be used to support the teaching of this phrase.
The second is a General Knowledge Pop Quiz. This is a fun way to build up the bank of general knowledge available for pupils to draw on when engaging with texts. This could be used for group, class, school or even inter-school pop quiz days!
