Ancient Greece Bundle

Ancient Greece Bundle

This bundle is a combination of Week 1 Topic work on Ancient Greece, alongside playscripts based on Ancient Greek Myths (Literacy) and a week of Explanation Texts based on the Ancient Greeks too. The Literacy planning includes a week's worth of planning and differentiated resources along with an interactive notebook to support the lesson. The Ancient Greece Topic lesson, introduces children to Ancient Greece and provide them with the background knowledge for their Literacy lesson. Both have been taught by myself with my Year 5 class, who LOVED learning about the Ancient Greeks. I bundled them together for anyone (like me), who will teach them on the same/consecutive weeks.

A Christmas Carol for Not High School Ready Learners

A Christmas Carol for Not High School Ready Learners

This is a 6-7 week unit of work based on the Ladybird Classics edition of 'A Christmas Carol'. The activities centre around an Active Inspire Flipchart, so you will need to ensure that you have access to this software, otherwise the core flipchart will not open. You will also need to purchase copies of the Ladybird Classics version of 'A Christmas Carol' separately. We used the following: ISBN: 978-1409312215 The unit of work begins with a focus on the Victorian period and in particular, the gap between the rich and the poor. Learners briefly touch upon the concept of the perfect Christmas before beginning guided reading on the novel. The unit culminates in a reading and writing assessment based on the character of Scrooge. This unit of work is aimed at Year 7 learners who are deemed to be not high school ready. With the current changes to the GCSE curriculm, it may provide a useful foundation for GCSE English Literature.
