AQA LIT GAME - Macbeth/ A Christmas Carol/ Pigeon English/ Poetry: Power&Conflict

AQA LIT GAME - Macbeth/ A Christmas Carol/ Pigeon English/ Poetry: Power&Conflict

A great resource to encourage students to revise through game play. Highly challenging and competitive. Students soon forget that they are even revising. 64 cards - Key quotes, Themes and Techniques for: Macbeth A Christmas Carol Pigeon English Poetry: Power and Conflict The multi-coloured board game and the rules are included too. This game is very versatile and that is why I have left some aspects of the rules up to you. What may work with one group, may not work with another. How I play: Start in the middle and work your way around the board with each role of the dice. The group that land on the category picks a representative who has to: -draw -articulate -act - guess (speaker/ poem etc) something that is similar to the point on the card. The rest of the team need to guess within the time allotted. If the group fail to guess, then they need to move their counter back to where they came from. Happy playing (I mean - REVISING!)

Year 6 Reading Comprehension-Vocabulary and Inference resources

Year 6 Reading Comprehension-Vocabulary and Inference resources

Designed by a Year 6 teacher and Reading SATs marker, this resource contains a PowerPoint of 15 reading texts with related vocabulary and inference questions, plus a PowerPoint containing reading question stems to use when focusing on inference in lessons. It also includes answer prompts for children to use when responding to questions, both orally and in writing. All activities are aligned to the KS2 national tests-the questions are written in the style of recent tests, and the question stems are compiled from analysis of past SATs questions. Texts include a mixture of fiction, non fiction and poetry. These resources are ideal to use as regular short-burst reading practice for Year 6 during the time before KS2 SATs. They can be used as part of whole-class or small group reading lessons or guided reading sessions. All are fully editable. The resources focus on the specific content domains (the comprehension elements of the national curriculum as assessed by KS2 English reading tests) related to vocabulary and inference: 2a-give / explain the meaning of words in context 2d-make inferences from the text / explain and justify inferences with evidence from the text
