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 :)

Literacy Editing Lesson

Literacy Editing Lesson

**STOP MARKING CHILDREN’S WRITING! ** This editing structure splits the process into two sections, proof-reading and composition. The only ‘marking’ the class teacher must do is, read the child’s work, note down any common grammatical and spelling errors, then add examples (good and bad) to the slides. I have used this process for a whole year and I’ve managed to mark 30 children’s writing AND plan an editing lesson in 40 minutes! This 23 slide notebook include all the KS2 writing writing at and above age related standard assessment criteria to help with assessing the children writing. Give it a go and contact me if anything is unclear. Claim back your evenings!
