Language Revision- Paper 1 and 2 AQA with sources

Language Revision- Paper 1 and 2 AQA with sources

This is a full revision lesson designed for a lesson during the half term, but it can be used as a normal lesson (although it would fill a few lessons). It is a guide to each question on both papers (apart from Q1s), which gives examples, models, tips and guidance through the questions. It is fairly simple to follow, and can be easily adapted if you would like less on each slide (there is a lot of information). There are also three sources- two written by me and one called ‘The Open Door’- part of a horror story.

KS3, KS4, poetry, reading, writing, simile, analysis, crr, WW1, war poetry, cover

This lesson uses Margaret Postgate Cole’s “The Falling Leaves”. The lesson was originally planned as cover. There is a short powerpoint (only 9 slides and one of those slides is a printable) accompanied by a worksheet which has a copy of the poem together with six questions, two of which are on the poem’s structure and its effect; the others focus on Cole’s use of simile and its effect. The main focus of the lesson is on the use of simile. Once the analysis of the poem is done, the pupils are then asked to create their own similes to go alongside an image of a WW1 soldier in a trench. Having done this, they are asked to use their similes along with four of Cole’s words to produce a piece of creative writing, either in poetry or in prose.

Basic Planning (2 week rolling timetable covering reading, writing, grammar and spelling)Yr 2 and 3

2 Week Rotation covering – • Responding to feedback • Verbal and written responses to texts demonstrating comprehension • Spelling Patterns • Grammar Rules • Evidence of writing, drafting and editing. Area for recording additional support for children who need it. Handwriting practice completed separately. Minimal tweaking required to apply to any genre. Used last year for year 2 children and got top 10% writing results for SATs. One text required for each 2 week cycle. One comprehension, one spelling activity and one grammar activity also needed. Huge time saver as weekly planning time is small changes to include additional activities (eg. debates for persuasive writing etc)

Writing Sheet - Squirrels in Woods - Ys 2+3, guided.

Writing Sheet - Squirrels in Woods - Ys 2+3, guided.

The lively illustrations will draw children to this creative writing sheet, encouraging rich, expressive language. The given text will also inspire imaginative and varied descriptions of these familiar and popular animals. An example version is provided for the teacher’s use, with several suggested versions for each line. Perhaps read out one version and use the others as ideas to prompt for as needed. With the potential for fun and lively input and colouring fun, even less enthusiastic writers will be keen to get cracking on this creative writing sheet (or picture poem frame, if you like). While supporting writing development, the resource will also enhance animal and nature studies. Best for Years 2 and 3, and those in Year 4 needing extra writing support.

The Nowhere Emporium (UKS2, Fiction) - planning ideas for a creative literacy unit

The Nowhere Emporium (UKS2, Fiction) - planning ideas for a creative literacy unit

This resource contains ideas for planning a creative literacy unit based on ‘The Nowhere Emporium’, an excellent novel by Ross MacKenzie*. Suitable for Upper Key Stage 2. Plan a fantastic unit of work that includes a visit to a museum to marvel at treasures, creating your own Book of Wonders through writing and designing and building a snow globe! Story synopsis When Daniel Holmes hides from the local bully in the doorway of a newly appeared shop, he has no idea that he has stepped over a magical threshold. The Nowhere Emporium is the invention of magician Lucien Silver: part shop, part theme park, a place where wonders - amazing sights and experiences - appear at the stroke of a magician’s pen. Fascinated by the wonders of the Emporium, Daniel begins to discover his own magical potential and the places his imagination can take him to. But as Daniel quickly discovers, the world of magic can be a dangerous place. How to use this resource This resource is structured into five parts. Inspiration - sharing the book with your class. Incubation - exploring the ideas in the book through reading, drama and discussion. Connection - making cross-curricular links with this book. Application - getting the children writing creatively. Illumination - bringing the work to life through art and design. Each part is designed to help you deliver a structured literacy unit that offers children room for creativity, develops opportunities for meaningful learning and is plugged in to different areas of the curriculum. This ‘Have you Tried?’ resource can form the basis for an outstanding, cross-curricular unit of literacy work. For more ideas like this, visit articulateeducation.co.uk *Please note this is not a complete set of lesson plans but there are many ideas in this resource that can form the basis of a unit of work. It has been designed in this way intentionally so you can adapt it to your class and school.
