Romeo & Juliet Revision Scheme of Work

Romeo & Juliet Revision Scheme of Work

A comprehensive revision scheme of work for Romeo & Juliet. Designed in line with the 100% linear exams for Eduqas English Literature specification. I have included a variety of strategies to engage learners and to aid revision. The scheme also covers a range of terminology to be taught in order to enable learners to analyse effectively (for example, there is a lesson on Aristotle's conventions of tragedy, and another on the conventions of the form). Clear learning objectives and differentiated outcomes have been included for each lesson, and resources are scaffolded to allow for levels of differentiation. Resources are included and have been referred to within the ppt in order to make preparation as straightforward as possible.

A Christmas Carol Cratchits High Ability

A Christmas Carol Cratchits High Ability

This is aimed towards teaching pupils how to write band 5/6 responses. The lesson revolves around a book about the sentimentalisation of the poor/children and families in Victorian fiction and gives pupils a valuable insight into how their presentation pertains to the typical presentation of families and children at the time and the meanings behind their characterisation. I taught this to top set year 11 and no one achieved below a 7 in their assessment on the extract. Based on the extract where the Cratchit family are introduced. Plan for roughly 20-25 minutes worth of teacher-led discussion to ensure this ideas are fully understood. This is not the extract from the Summer '17 exam which means they will be able to make perceptive links but not be overly scaffolded prior to mock examination.

Halloween Special! Clarifying - Context Clues

Halloween Special! Clarifying - Context Clues

These spoooooooky worksheets can be used as part of the reciprocal reading scheme or as part of a one off grammar lesson. Fun halloween themed worksheets based around effective descriptions. It is so important for children to be able to infer meaning from unknown words without being able to rush straight for a dictionary. To find out the meanings of the words in this task, dictionaries are definitely not an option! With purple words being in a totally different language, children must use the rest of the sentence to make sense out of the gobbledygook. This also works fantastically in encouraging children to understand how sentences are formed - also the purpose of each word class. The words used in these worksheets are French - Perfect for integrating cross-curricular language links.
