Literacy problems to solve for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3
Print off the page and cut out the pieces, or tear
a sheet of paper into 12 pieces and write one of the letters on each

Sentence card game
How to play The aim of the game is to complete sentences.
A sentence consists of four cards, A,B,C,D.
The cards in a sentence must always be laid down in the order A,B,C,D.
Print out the blank cards from here and
put four aside. Deal the remaining cards equally between the players.
The player who has the card A1 starts the game
by placing the cards face up on the table to start a sentence.
The next player can either play any B card to continue
the sentence, or they can use an A card to start
a new sentence. If they cannot play they miss a turn.
Each following player can continue one of the existing sentences,
or start a new sentence with an A card. If they cannot
play they miss their turn.
If a player plays a card next to a card with the same number, e.g.
C2 following B2, they get an extra
The winner is the first
player to set down all their cards.
