A full scheme of PowerPoint lessons and resources, designed to cover the poetry of World War One over a half term. Activities are suitable for all abilities and are differentiated. The scheme is designed for year 9, but could be used at any level of KS3 or adapted for KS4. A knowledge organiser and summative assessment are included.
The lessons work through a poetry of war anthology and workbook, which is included. The powerpoint contains the full scheme of work, and contains video and interactive resources. Main tasks include the social and historical context of WWI, drama, creative writing and reading tasks. There is a heavy focus on identifying and using language and structural techniques, in line with the new expectations at KS4.
