Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

Riddles and Wordplay (Witches, Macbeth)

A lesson that focuses on the witches’ use of word play and how this influenced Macbeth’s course of action. This includes a lesson plan, lesson presentation and differentiated activity. This lesson allows for a more detailed consideration of the role of the witches, and the use of the deliberately misleading in order to influence, but it is more than this, as it aims to foster a love of words and wordplay with the children. (There are some nice PSHE elements in terms of things people might say nowadays that are not actual lies, but not actually the truth, too.) There’s a great link to a clip from Shrek II where Pinocchio is attempting not to give away Shrek’s position but cannot lie. He uses double negatives and babble to mislead without lying! Children will really enjoy attempting to solve the riddles, which have been pitched so that at least 1 or 2 per bundle should be solved, possibly more. I’ve tried to source new ones, but there are a couple of oldies, too. The riddles should be distributed in tables or groups of 4-6. They are read and discussed in the groups. Once the solutions are given, pupils consider how the language was misleading/what it was about the riddle that was deceptive. This can be a piece of written work, or remain a spoken activity. I have used this resource in Year 5, with a re-written story version of Macbeth, once the story had been completed, so they could appreciate the significance of the second prophecies. We had puns and riddles galore for weeks afterwards! I hope you enjoy using this resource. I would be grateful if you could leave a review, once you have used it in class.

Language Revision- Paper 1 and 2 AQA with sources

Language Revision- Paper 1 and 2 AQA with sources

This is a full revision lesson designed for a lesson during the half term, but it can be used as a normal lesson (although it would fill a few lessons). It is a guide to each question on both papers (apart from Q1s), which gives examples, models, tips and guidance through the questions. It is fairly simple to follow, and can be easily adapted if you would like less on each slide (there is a lot of information). There are also three sources- two written by me and one called ‘The Open Door’- part of a horror story.

BEST GUESS AQA LITERATURE PAPER 2 MOCK

BEST GUESS AQA LITERATURE PAPER 2 MOCK

This is my version of the best guess mock for AQA English Literature Paper 2 2018. There is an ‘An Inspector Calls’ question (choice of two) which has been ‘guessed’ by looking at what has come up previously and through legacy spec along with a best guess question (two again as I couldn’t decide!) for the Power and Conflict cluster of poems. There is also an unseen poetry question also attached which uses ‘The Mower’ by Philip Larkin.

AQA GCSE Eng Lang, Paper 1, Question 1, Question 2, "Career of Evil", reading, exam prep

AQA GCSE Eng Lang, Paper 1, Question 1, Question 2, "Career of Evil", reading, exam prep

Created for a year 11 class in the run-up to their English Language GCSE, this looks at the first two questions on paper 1 (reading fiction) and focuses on questions 1 and 2. The focus on question 1 is pretty brief as it is the most accessible question. It asks the students to identify which of two responses is best in order to clear up any misconceptions about the demands of this question. The focus then moves to question 2 where the powerpoint requires a whole-class model that is structured to meet the bullet points of the mark scheme. The model is of the first paragraph of the response; the students are then asked to use the structure and format of that model to write the next two paragraphs of their answer.

AQA English Language 8700 paper 1 question 4 evaluating fully planned unit of work

A scheme of work planned around paper 1 question 4 of AQA’s current GCSE spec. 10 fully resourced lessons, all with starters, mains, plenaries and extension tasks. I have found that my students don’t know how to express an argument or have an opinion so I designed this. Includes references to the AOs and the exam mark scheme. Made to be taught at the end of year 9 but would also be suitable for year 10 at the start of the course. Easily adaptable for differentiation. Students will be encouraged to evaluate different things including films, sweets, a talent show audition and objects before moving onto extracts. Extracts are taken from The Great Gatsby, Water for Elephants, The Life of Pi, Of Mice and Men, Wurthering Heights and The Hound of the Baskervilles.
