Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
Fishing game

Pictures with paper clips attached, magnetic fishing rods, 'pond' e.g. a flat box

Have 2 or more 'nets' drawn on paper - these are the groups e.g. things in class / things outside.

Put cards in the box, take turns to fish for a picture, say/sign what is fished out.

Let the child decide which net that picture should go into.

Give the pupil time to name the object. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, the first sound, or the word or sign to repeat)

You may need to talk about what the object is used for to help the child decide where it should go.

Have the child think of more objects to go in each net.

Collages

Pictures of everyday objects, background pictures (Black Sheep Sentence Builder and Narrative Packs have some good ones)

Give the pupil time to name the object. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, the first sound. or the word or sign to repeat)

Have each child take a turn at thinking of other items they could add to that collage. They can draw these on.

Jotters

Pictures of everyday objects from class and outside. A blank jotter book

Have the child take a turn at thinking of other items they could add

Odd one out activates

Pictures of everyday objects from class and outside

Give the pupil time to think about it. Help them by giving a prompt (e.g. a forced alternative, talking about where you find each object and what you do with it.)
