Making great literacy lessons easy. Why join Plazoom?
Help pupils build a rich and broad vocabulary from Reception to Year 6 and beyond, with Plazoom’s strategy-filled Word Whoosh resource packs.
Designed to clarify and extend children’s understanding of tier 2 words, each Word Whoosh resource focuses on six words per year group per half term, through a series of four quick and effective mini-lessons: read and visualise; associate; understand; and define & master (based on the Frayer model).
Used daily, these packs will help close any vocabulary gaps - fast.
There are six Word Whoosh resource packs per year group (plus an additional greater depth pack for Y6). Each resource pack features six words per half term, with handy teacher notes, and vibrant worksheets, word cards and display materials.
Each teaching sequence harnesses a highly effective, short and snappy teaching sequence to deepen pupils’ understanding of vocabulary and close the vocabulary gap.
Over the course of a week, using these daily activities (just 5-15 mins a day), you can start to close the vocabulary gap and embed effective strategies across your school to build a rich and broad vocabulary curriculum.
We test all of our resources in the classroom to ensure EVERY Plazoom resource works for both teachers and pupils. There are thousands of primary schools in the UK and abroad using Plazoom resources to improve literacy outcomes every day.
