Literacy problems to solve for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3

 Key Stage 1          Wordswork!

Here are some more word grids.

If you want to make it more difficult try using only adjoining letters. You can go up, down, sideways and diagonally, can you find the nine letter word?

 Key Stage 3           Wordswork!

PROBABILITY
Modal verbs are those which combine with other verbs to give an idea about the likelihood of events happening. E.g. “It could rain tomorrow” means it may or may or not rain.
Put these statements in order of the most probable event. Start with the least likely.

It may rain tomorrow.
It might rain tomorrow.
It must rain tomorrow.
It will rain tomorrow.
It shall rain tomorrow.
It could rain tomorrow.
It should rain tomorrow.

Can you make up your own statements which use the words may, might, must, will, shall, could, should and put them in order of probability? What about can and would? These are harder modal verbs to use in this way.

Teacher notes – This activity will deliver English Framework SENTENCE 5 = “Recognise and exploit the use of conditionals and modal verbs when speculating, hypothesising or discussing possibilities.”
