Changing attitudes to relationships AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.0)

Changing attitudes to relationships AQA 9-1 GCSE (Relationships and Families 3.0)

I teach this lesson at the start of the Relationships and Families thematic until (Chapter 3). I want students to understand the diverse world we live in and put the learning we will do into context. I also want the students to understand that we embrace all of them and are not interested in pigeon-holing them into badly defined categories of sexuality. The aim here is to open the debate, challenge preconceptions, build a welcoming and open discussion environment and show them how relevant this topic area is to all of us.

Year 5 and 6 Christmas Story Comprehension - The Shepherds

Year 5 and 6 Christmas Story Comprehension - The Shepherds

This resource is a comprehension activity based on the year 6 reading comprehension SATs paper. The comprehension text covers the part of the Christmas story when the shepherds visit Jesus. I have rewritten the Bible story to resemble the style of the SATs reading paper. There is a reading booklet of 3 pages, followed by 4 pages of questions, which are based on last year's paper. There is also a mark scheme at the end of the booklet. I have included 3 differentiated levels. The HA level is similar to the SATs paper, whilst the MA and LA use slightly simplified wording in the reading and question booklet and could also be used by year 5s. PDF file format and editable Microsoft word format included in the price.
