  1. Are there any more of these going to be made ready for September? These are a great resource. Something similar to the Mixed Mental Maths for all year groups (http://classroomsecrets.co.uk/mixed-mental-maths/).

    These are great for Year 6 as they cover all the topics right through from Year 1 to 6 and it is great to do small and often.

    Thanks.

  2. Which words are verbs?
    fly can be a verb or a noun and the same goes for the word jump. It would be great to have a resource where the words are placed in a sentence as only then can you classify it.

  3. Hi,

    Are there any more of these sheets?
    My class really benefited from this and I wondered if there were any more to use in subsequent weeks?

    • Hi Zoe,
      Glad to hear your class are enjoying our resources! We currently have 13 packs similar to this covering a range of skills which can be found here:http://classroomsecrets.co.uk/search/?fwp_topic=early-morning-work. We don’t have any more of this type planned at the minute as we are very busy covering the reasoning and problem solving resources but I will mention it to our resource creation team for future resources. The link above also includes our 5 Minute SPAG Revision resources which we will be adding to over the next few months. I hope this helps,
      Sian 🙂
