Class Assembly/Play - THE GREATEST SHOW! (based on the Greatest Showman)

Class Assembly/Play - THE GREATEST SHOW! (based on the Greatest Showman)

THE GREATEST SHOW! - A PLAY OR CLASS ASSEMBLY! A class assembly/play for reception, KS1 or even KS2! We did this with a Reception class - they were incredible! It ran alongside our ‘Circus’ theme. We focussed lots on The Greatest Showman and the song ‘This is Me’. I’ve included the script, presentation (which includes all music) and some costume letters to be sent home. I added photos of the children to the slide show which made it even better. The slide show has all been set up and timings suited us. We had such great feedback from this production! I hope you enjoy it! (SEE MAIN IMAGE FOR REAL PREVIEW! -The font and pics look a little weird in the TES preview pics? But it’s actually all done in Comic Sans! I did have it all in pre-cursive, but knew that some schools wouldn’t have this font, so changed it all to Comic Sans. Hopefully it should be in that font when you download!)

A series of engaging and innovative plenary games

A series of engaging and innovative plenary games

I am pleased to add a series of plenary games that have been used to support and motivate more challenging and demotivated students. The games have worked wonders for getting students interested in a number of topics and engaging in a variety of skills. The games include: pass the question/ball, Manchester Monopoly, Nought and Crosses, Snakes and Ladders, Penalties, Street Fighter, Simpsons Card Reveal and Reveal. Attached is also an electronic dice to use in line with some of the games (to controll the dice, press F5 and then the letter ‘S’ to stop the dice). The games will not fail to deliver engagement and promote good progress - especially for students whio struggle to retain information and who are demotivated. Ideal for any subject area and for any age group.

Romeo and Juliet for KS3 SEN

Romeo and Juliet for KS3 SEN

A fully-resourced unit of work for SEN students who need a general understanding of the play before approaching the original text in KS4. The unit includes an adapted script in modern English. The PPT is just over 140 slides long and is intended to provide 8-10 weeks’ worth of work for low ability and SEN students. It guides students through the adapted Acts 1-5 and provides a range of comprehension and vocab exercises. It culminates in an assessment that makes use of both short-answer questions and one long-answer question on Romeo as a tragic hero. Suitable for teachers and non-specialists with a low ability KS3 group. If you would prefer to buy the adapted script separately, it is available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/romeo-and-juliet-sen-script-11892212 NB. On slide 128, I’ve discovered that the multi-coloured text boxes look slightly out of place on different computers. If this is the case, it is simply a question of adjusting them slightly to put them back over the appropriate squares.

Act 4 Scene 2 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Act 4 Scene 2 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Everything you need to teach Act 4 Scene2 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is also available as part of a bundle whereby a considerable saving can be made; following the full scheme is recommended. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. No fear version is also included as a further scaffolding tool for lower ability learners. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do. PDF version is for preview purposes. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author! If you make a purchase and find the resource useful, why not get another one absolutely free? Simply leave a review for the resource purchased, email with your TES username alongside a link to the resource you would like. Your free resource will then be sent over right away!

An Inspector Calls (6 Lessons)

An Inspector Calls (6 Lessons)

Six lessons introducing students to the plot, characters, themes and text of ‘An Inspector Calls’ by J. B. Priestley. This was taught to Year 7 as part of a wider scheme of work on ‘Twentieth Century Theatre’ but would be suitable for introducing the play to any Key Stage 3 group. The plot is introduced to students as an interactive murder mystery task, engaging them with the complexities of the narrative. Each lesson focuses on one or two members of the Birling family, encouraging students to consider to what exten each member is to blame. The lessons are diverse and link the text to wider ideas such as social class and gender. Tasks include empathetic writing, quotation explosions, PEE/PETAL paragraphs and creating design briefs for a theatre production. Many tasks are differentiated, use Bloom’s Taxonomy command words and include extension tasks to encourage Stretch & Challenge. All lessons are printing-free and require no resources or worksheets. These lessons could be used alongside reading the full script, or independently to give students the basic gist of the plot and characters.

Persuasive Writing Assessment Sheet - KS3 and KS4 (FAR Marking)

Persuasive Writing Assessment Sheet - KS3 and KS4 (FAR Marking)

A quick and easy way to give VERY SPECIFIC feedback without copious amounts of writing. Simply glue the sheet in under the student’s work. Tick the relevant criteria, set targets quickly and ensure the student has read your marking by getting them respond to in the student response section. This assessment sheet is ideal for marking drafts and final copies of exam preparation essays. It can be used with KS3 and KS4. It corresponds with the FAR marking policy = Feedback - Action -Response. i.e. Stage 1: The teacher gives FEEDBACK using very specific criteria which should be shared with students before the assessment takes place. Stage 2: The teacher uses the criteria to specify which ACTIONS the student needs to take to get to the next grade. Stage 3: The student writes a written RESPONSE to the teacher’s comments about the ACTIONS required to reach the next stage. It’s very useful for showing progress, communicating attainment on HW or timed (in class) essays that form part of exam preparation revision.

Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

A lesson that focuses on the witches’ use of word play and how this influenced Macbeth’s course of action. This includes a lesson plan, lesson presentation and differentiated activity. This lesson allows for a more detailed consideration of the role of the witches, and the use of the deliberately misleading in order to influence, but it is more than this, as it aims to foster a love of words and wordplay with the children. (There are some nice PSHE elements in terms of things people might say nowadays that are not actual lies, but not actually the truth, too.) There’s a great link to a clip from Shrek II where Pinocchio is attempting not to give away Shrek’s position but cannot lie. He uses double negatives and babble to mislead without lying! Children will really enjoy attempting to solve the riddles, which have been pitched so that at least 1 or 2 per bundle should be solved, possibly more. I’ve tried to source new ones, but there are a couple of oldies, too. The riddles should be distributed in tables or groups of 4-6. They are read and discussed in the groups. Once the solutions are given, pupils consider how the language was misleading/what it was about the riddle that was deceptive. This can be a piece of written work, or remain a spoken activity. I have used this resource in Year 5, with a re-written story version of Macbeth, once the story had been completed, so they could appreciate the significance of the second prophecies. We had puns and riddles galore for weeks afterwards! I hope you enjoy using this resource. I would be grateful if you could leave a review, once you have used it in class.
