Sample Creative Piece

Sample Creative Piece

CCEA GCSE ENGLISH Language: Unit 4 (Paper 2) Section A: Personal or Creative Writing Here is a sample creative piece in response to one of the mock papers made (and available for download on TES). It is quite dry and whilst the plot line is probably standard enough, it doesn’t really pitch it to the correct audience stipulated in the mock question. The characters are quite static and need to be developed more, and the piece is too short. However, I thought students could use it to see the importance of reading the question carefully and consciously trying to engage the target audience you’ve been assigned. My plan would be that after they in pairs discussed the work, filled in the checklist and gave some feedback on what was good/bad, that we could discuss the stimulus picture and brainstorm some potential plotlines. A lot of them might be inspired to do a Pretty Little Liars style thing where the main character perhaps gets texts from a mysterious unknown person, or perhaps go down a bullying route?

Key Stage 3 English Language Exam Prep

Key Stage 3 English Language Exam Prep

A lesson, which could stretch over two, 1 hour, periods this lesson prepares key stage 3 for a practice language exam. This lesson is based on the sample AQA English Language Key Stage 3 paper which avaliable on their site, I cannot put this as an attachment due to copyright laws BUT this is very easy to find on the AQA site. The lesson walks the pupils, step by step, through question 1,2,4, and 5 by using model examples and top tips to answer each questions - there is also time for the pupils to have a go at this question too. Question 3 is omitted from this ppt as we don’t include it on our own examination for key stage 3, but it can be easily added if required. Many thanks for looking :)

Persuasive Writing Self-Assessment Activity - includes FAR marking strategies

Persuasive Writing Self-Assessment Activity - includes FAR marking strategies

Suitable for KS3 and KS4. This resource is suitable as a criteria sheet that students can use to achieve their persuasive writing targets. They can keep re-visiting the sheet for HW tasks too throughout the year (if it’s glued into their exercise books). The key strategy governing the activity is that students are taking charge of their own progress and learning to be independent learners as the criteria sheet is an important tool in their learning toolbox. The activity also deploys FAR marking techniques.

KS3, KS4, reading, explaining effect of methods, fear, dread, tension, Joe Hill, "NOS4A2", analysis

I made this lesson for a year 9 class after their end of year exam had revealed that, while they are good at picking out the relevant methods, they are not explaining HOW and WHY these methods affect the reader as they do. The text used is from Joe Hill’s “NOS4A2” and it is similar in length to the texts that the students will encounter at GCSE. For differentiation, the pupils are asked to produce a paired response; this could easily be adapted with pupils being asked to work independently for greater challenge.

End of Year Quiz 2018

End of Year Quiz 2018

Every year, I keep getting asked if I am creating another quiz because everyone seems to love them. As we finish school on the 22nd of June this year, I have been able to get this one made during times when the kids are involved in end of year activities! I was lucky as it is so time consuming! The music round alone took me 4 hours to create and I was able to do it whilst kids were on a out of school visit! This will fill a full hour including the marking, but you must be tight on timing. I would suggest for each picture in the places round - 10 seconds. For the personalities round 2 minutes and for the wotz dat?? round 3 minutes maximum. The conundrum round should have no more than 10 minutes, but they should be able to do it in 5 as the focus is English punctuation and there are only so many forms of punctuation. The music round takes 15 minutes (video I have created). My quizzes usually prove to be very popular and the kids love them! Enjoy!

End of Term Year  Quiz June 2018

End of Term Year Quiz June 2018

I hope your class have had a great year. You’ve worked so hard and you deserve to use this for…all your classes at least once? So I’ve made it broad enough to apply to ages 11 - 19 with no amendment. 5 rounds of questions: 1. Film and TV 2. Children’s Literature 3. News headlines 4. The Royal Wedding 5. Music Intros. The films and TV programmes , news headlines and royal wedding are from 2018 while the children’s books referred to are mostly classics with a few recent best sellers, The music intros are linked to YouTube. All songs selected are from this year and suitable for all ages while still (hopefully!) being cool. I’m sure the kids will give you their opinions! The newspaper headlines round asks students to write their own true headlines to go with the pictures provided. This can also vary in assessment depending on the ability of your class. It’s difficult to give definitive answers to some of these (no PowerPoint should have to burden all of Donald Trump’s newsworthy stories), so links have been provided to Google searches for news on the person in question. Enjoy and have a wonderful summer! : )
