Ancient Egypt

Ancient Egypt

A Unit of work comprising 10 lessons. Focus is on learning about Ancient Egypt through engaging, differentiated activities, worksheets and games. All resources are printable and editable. Created for High School Years 9, 10 Special Education students (ID, ASD, SLI) and students with learning difficulties who had varying literacy levels from non-readers to reading at close to peer age level but with low comprehension levels and limited higher order thinking skills. This unit could be used successfully in primary school classrooms. Lesson content and resources have been differentiated and are designed to extend the more able students while allowing low level students to succeed and engage in the learning. It is suggested to view in PDF format (much clearer) and download in Word to allow for editing.

First World War poetry plan Year 6/7 Wilfred Owen Dulce et Decorum est outstanding teacher WWI

First World War poetry plan Year 6/7 Wilfred Owen Dulce et Decorum est outstanding teacher WWI

This differentiated literacy lesson is about Wilfred Owen’s iconic First World War poem Dulce et Decorum est and is ideal for a Year 6 or 7 class. It is differentiated three ways. The lesson begins by introducing children to the poet, whose work they listen to as part of an animated video clip. Partner/group work then enables the pupils to analyse the poem and explore the language used before writing their own individual version. This document includes the lesson plan with plenary, three differentiated versions of sections of the poem and information/pictures to display on the board for extra inspiration. I have not been observed teaching this particular lesson but I have received an outstanding grade in all my most recent literacy observations.

Samuel Pepys

Samuel Pepys

The children can complete these activities after they have done some research into Samuel Pepys. One is a card match activity- match the question to the answer. The other is a true or false activity- children can cut out and stick into their books whether they are true or false statements.
