GCSE English - create a short story, visual group activity.

Many students often struggle with the freedom to use their imagination, particularly under exam conditions. This resource was created for the AQA specification, Paper 1 Question 5 - create a short story based from an image. However this resource is diverse enough to be adapted to a wide range of exam boards and creative writing skills, from encouraging writing in low level Functional skills English students to developing language features in GCSE students. It uses paintings by Picasso and Frieda Kahlo. It is a team activity which allows for differentiation among levels and abilities by using a scaffold questions system. The activity is developed to allow the teacher freedom to build in specifically tailored skills they wish their students to learn. Encouraging students to use their imagination allows English to be fun and engaging whilst also developing their confidence in the subject, as with this activity there is no wrong answer.

Informative writing and comprehension Leonardo da Vinci

Informative writing and comprehension Leonardo da Vinci

This animated Power Point presents the story about how Leonardo came to paint the Biblical characters of Jesus and Judas in his famous painting of The Last Supper. Students are required to answer questions from the text to identify nouns, adjectives and verbs, compound words and abstract nouns. They are then required to produce a piece of informative writing about da Vinci organising the information chronologically. As da Vinci had designed a parachute way ahead of its time, words beginning with the prefix para- are examined and pupils are required to match them to their definitions. Finally pupils are given some interesting examples of paradox to discuss with the group. This resource is intended to be used for revision of several aspects of grammar and literary understanding whilst also learning about the artist Leonardo da Vinci and his famous accomplishments. Suitable for ages 10+ of higher ability.
