OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

A memory game is a funny way to learn vocabulary. School year is almost over in most of the countries. Have students review occupations while having fun, matching pictures with the correct words.Comments are appreciated. Playing the Game The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards. The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two Jacks then they take the two cards and start a stack. The player is awarded another turn for making a match and goes again. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn. The next player chooses their first card and turns it over. If it is a match for one of the cards the previous player turned over then they try to remember where that matching card was and turn it. If they are successful at making a match they place the cards in their stack and choose another card. If the first card turned over was not a match for one previously turned over the player selects another card in an attempt of making a pair. If they are unsuccessful in making a match they flip the cards back over and play is passed to the next player. A players turn is not over until they are unable to make a matching pair. The game continues in this fashion until all the cards are played.

GCSE English HOW TO PREPARE AN ESSAY An Inspector Calls- Gerald Croft

GCSE English HOW TO PREPARE AN ESSAY An Inspector Calls- Gerald Croft

This is a A/A* grade GCSE English model essay preparation handout covering a topic in the play An Inspector Calls by JB Priestley. In this case it is a discussion of the character of Gerald Croft and how he embodies the themes of the play. It includes points to discuss; themes you should mention in ANY Inspector Calls essays; and quotes- and deviates from the PEE structure. This is because many examiners consider PEE a weak structure for which they can only award AO2/ grade C marks. Great revision/ essay preparation tool that can be adapted for all essays, and useful for those who find the play difficult to follow. It is divided up in how to compile an introduction an essay body and a conclusion. A useful guide for teachers, pupils and tutors/parents who homeschool, with four pages of explanation and themes, and an additional three page section for the addition of relevant quotes and space to make your own analysis/commentary before you start the essay.

COAL MINING WITH FOLK ARTS AND POETRY - a cross curricular resource for Primary Schools

COAL MINING WITH FOLK ARTS AND POETRY - a cross curricular resource for Primary Schools

This pack brings some background information about coal mining together with songs and poems that can be used in primary schools to explore and analyse the issues surrounding coal mining. It was created by the English Folk Dance and Song Society in partnership with the National Coal Mining Museum for England. There is a wealth of folk music, song and dance associated with coal mining. The living conditions of mining families also feature in songs, as do tales of child labour and poverty. There are many songs about the different jobs and roles that people had, and sad laments about mining disasters that occurred. There is also the rapper dance tradition that grew from coal mining communities in the North East, and tunes that accompanied the dances. The material presented in this pack has all been tried and tested with visitors to the National Coal Mining Museum for England, pupils at Flockton C of E (c) First School, Wakefield (thanks to the East Peak Industrial Heritage Support Programme), and also in The Full English school projects at St John with St Mark CofE Primary School, Bury and Shawlands Primary School, Barnsley. All the material can be used to explore themes of local history, industrial revolution, child labour, poverty and social change. The material is aimed at primary age children and their teachers.
