Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Changing Perspectives in Fairy Tales and a full, concise preparation and assessment booklet.

Fairy Tales are canonical texts, passed through the ages. These resources ask pupils to explore the different characters perspectives in fairy tales and then helps guide them into preparation for their own performance of a classic Fairy Tale. For higher ability or older students you could ask them to modernise the fairy tales or even ‘explode the canon’ and turn the fairy tale on it’s head! Thanks so much for viewing, please review and feel free to browse to other resources too (many of them are free as I know how hard us teachers work!) Many thanks, Short

Y11 short SOW for Hamlet.

Y11 short SOW for Hamlet.

This is a resource I created for a y11 class studying Hamlet as pre-reading for next year’s Literature unit on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. It’s quite open-ended and the activities can easily be differentiated by task and by outcome. The Learning Outcomes are quite broad. This is especially useful if you’re exploring the text and adapting to the class as you go along, as opposed to a specific exam focus. The students picked their own monologue extracts so the ones listed are just suggestions based on my class.

Macbeth - Modern Script

Macbeth - Modern Script

A complete script for Macbeth but with a Sik twist. Every scene and every act are included in this modern script which is designed for KS3 students who “don’t get” all the old words. The key quotes and witches lines are kept as original however the majority of the text has been modernised with some humour thrown in. My bottom set Year 9 loved reading this and a group of reluctant readers began volunteering for parts! An example of the changed script: MACBETH: (Aside) Glamis, and Thane of Cawdor! Those bearded women were right! (To Ross and Angus)Thanks for telling me. (To Banquo) Well if they were right about this Cawdor thing maybe they were right about your children becoming kings! BANQUO: I dunno mate. But 'tis strange: And sometimes, to win us to our harm, The instruments of darkness tell us truths, In order to trick us later on. MACBETH: (Aside) Two truths are told, what if they were right about me being King? I could have a new castle, get the best horses and I’d look dope in a crown. BANQUO: Snap out of it worthy Macbeth, let’s get to that pub. MACBETH: Sounds like a good plan. Banquo, we’ll talk more about those women we met later on.
