Fed up of paying for resources that weren't up to the standard that my students required (or resources that needed endless adapting), I decided to start making my own. All of the resources in this shop have been tried and tested by myself and my department - I don't believe in selling things that I wouldn't use myself! Any feedback you have on any of my resources would be greatly appreciated!

This PowerPoint contains twenty four one-hour well-structured lessons (over 300 slides) that focus on AQA GCSE English Language Paper Two: Section A - Questions 1-4 (reading non-fiction; writers’ viewpoints and perspectives). All tasks are written according to the 9-1 GCSE numerical grades and are designed for AQA English Language Paper 2 qualification (8700). There are a wide range of tasks that focus on building the skills needed for AO1, AO2 and AO3 - including practice questions, original model responses, extension tasks and text extracts. The PowerPoint includes a baseline assessment and end of unit assessment questions that are modelled on the AQA exam; additionally, there are weekly 30 minute homework tasks for students to complete. There are also four extra exam-based questions that could be used as cover work or as extra questions for revision. Each lesson follows a set structure including starter activities, lesson outcomes and objectives, model answers, self and peer assessment activities and plenaries. I made the papers about topics that I know my students are interested in. Many of the topics lend themselves to key PSHE issues that make for interesting debates in the classroom should you want to improve their oracy skills or base the ‘Spoken Language’ endorsement around these topics. All extracts are from the 19th, 20th and 21st century. Paper 1: Bank Robberies Paper 2: Fires of London Paper 3: Mad Scientists Paper 4: Emmett Till and Racism Paper 5: Sexting Paper 6: Slavery Paper 7: Prisons Paper 8: Mental Health Paper 9: Gangs Paper 10: Death Row Paper 11: Thieves Additional tasks include Immigration, Donald Trump and Poisoned Sweets.

KS3 Non-Fiction Writing Scheme of Work

(0)
KS3 Non-Fiction Writing Scheme of Work This PowerPoint contains twenty one-hour lessons (233 slides) that focus on nonfiction writing skills, and is aimed at Key Stage Three. There are a wide range of tasks (lessons listed below) that focus on building the key skills of nonfiction writing: planning, language and structure methods, accurate punctuation, vocabulary and proofreading. There are practice questions, original non-fiction model responses, extension tasks, punctuation activities, and a whole bunch more! I have also included a second PowerPoint that can be printed as a resource booklet for students. This will save you time in printing and slicing (and will also save you a fortune on glue sticks!). Additionally, there are weekly homework tasks. And three printable sheets that can be used as KS3 nonfiction cover work if you are in a pinch. The premise is that students would gather information about a particular non- fiction topic by watching a documentary. They would then learn about the form of the text and plan their responses thoroughly. They would then learn a new skill and use this to complete some extended writing, before proofreading and editing their work. As a result, for some texts, they will be planning and writing over multiple lessons to really give them the chance to develop and hone their non-fiction writing skills. Please Note: The longer documentaries are available on Netflix; however, I have also provided alternatives on YouTube for teachers that do not have access to a Netflix account. Areas covered: Lesson 1: Baseline assessment on tackling climate change Lesson 2: Editing letters on education Lesson 3: Exciting introductions on filters Lesson 4: Writing leaflets on homelessness Lesson 5: Watching the world water crisis documentary Lesson 6: Planning, introductions and speech features Lesson 7: Writing a speech on the world water crisis Lesson 8: Headlines and newspaper features Lesson 9: Watching the fast food documentary Lesson 10: Discourse markers and planning articles Lesson 11: Writing an article on fast food Lesson 12: Midterm assessment on fast fashion Lesson 13: Watching the gender pay gap documentary Lesson 14: Structural features and letter planning Lesson 15: Writing a letter on the gender pay gap Lesson 16: Midterm assessment feedback Lesson 17: Watching the plastics documentary Lesson 18: Persuasive methods and planning texts Lesson 19: Writing the KS3 non-fiction writing end of unit assessment Lesson 20: Writing leaflets on our planet Extra: Three cover lessons Both the scheme and the resource booklet and provided in PPT and PDF formats.

English Language Intervention

This comprehensive PowerPoint, when printed (or emailed) as a booklet, can be used as an English Language intervention and also makes an ideal revision aid. It is modelled on the AQA 9-1 GCSE English Language new specification and includes eight sessions covering both paper one and paper two helping pupils to feel more prepared for their exams. With over 140 slides, this booklet has a series of easy to follow activities, exam questions and model answers for each of the ten questions of the GCSE. Each session is designed for students to be able to work through independently, or in small groups. Personally, I have given it as revision to my students, where they work through the booklet in their own time and use what they have learned on the homework tasks - which I then mark and give feedback on and my pupils have enjoyed the challenges and gained confidence in their exam technique. It could be used for isolation and exclusion tasks, extra revision, class work, homework, for intervention groups, or for GCSE re-sit students. The tasks are aimed at enabling pupils to obtain a grade 5 or above. Skills from all six AQA Assessment Objectives of the English Language course are included, along with extracts from the mark scheme and starter tasks centered around improving the AO6 and grammar skills of the students.

Jekyll and Hyde with Definitions

This is a differentiated copy of the ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ by R. L. Stevenson in Microsoft Word format. Many of my students disengage with the novel due to the complex vocabulary. When reading through it with them, I highlighted every word that they stumbled on or were unfamiliar with. I then found easier synonyms for these words and added them to the text in brackets. My students can now engage with the text a lot easier as a result. The whole differentiated novel is 51 pages in total and each chapter begins on a new page for ease of printing. This is part of my 24 lesson scheme of work on the novel, which can be found here.
