Key Stage 3 English Language exam prep

Key Stage 3 English Language exam prep

A powerpoint presentation to use for Key Stage 3 in terms of preparing them for an end of year exam, based on the AQA sample paper. This lesson as mentioned is based on an AQA sample paper - which is based on the GCSE Language paper exam (Fiction). The text that is used in the extract is Boy by Roald Dahl. The lesson itself walks pupils through how to answer questions 1,2,4, and 5 with model examples for each question too. Question 3 is omitted for the presentation as the pupils, for us, do not sit question 3 in this exam but you can easily add this if needed. The pupils found this really helpful for their exam and, because of it, they managed to approach the different question types with ease. Many thanks for looking :). (AQA extract and exam paper belong to AQA but attached so you can use this exam with this presentation).

AQA Language paper 2 using images

AQA Language paper 2 using images

This lesson asks students to complete language paper 2 style questions but through images (Brighton Pierotts painting) - the images help ALL students to access the content especially in relation to context and discussing how the piece is formed, to ‘read’ critically and make inferences. This is a creative way into a rather difficult task for some students. It uses a link to the Ashmolean Museum website as an interactive way of exploring the content of the image and linking to context (19th and 21st Century). Included: Lesson plan presentation Brighton Pierotts Non-fiction writing about Brighton 21st & 20th century

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! : )

The Sign of Four

The Sign of Four

12 lessons on Arthur Conan Doyle’s ‘The Sign of the Four’, with a focus on AQA GCSE English Literature Paper 1. These lessons have been used for low ability sets (target grades 2-5) and top sets (target grades 7-9) so they are very accessible and can be differentiated accordingly. Each lesson links to the Assessment Objectives, and the 12 lessons together help cover some of the main ideas, themes, characters (AO1) and context (AO3) in the novel. They also look at language and structure and their effects on the Victorian reader (AO2). The lessons link to key extracts and give students the opportunity to anaylse the extracts and practise exam skills. I have made an essay planning grid that can also be used for the Shakespeare question on AQA GCSE Literature Paper 1. Contains 12 powerpoints and resources for the lessons.

This is an entire scheme of work with a variety of extracts from different cultures, writers, backgrounds and time periods. It is a 4 week scheme but may last longer.
