These are the resources I used at the end of the year in my Topic lessons to revise non-fiction text types before the tests. Make sure the persuasion text lesson is taught before the recount lesson. If looking for inspiration, for discussion texts I asked the children to write about whether it was better to grow up in Athens or Sparta, but I used a resource by someone else. Thanks for looking!

Jekyll and Hyde | Summary/Revision Pack

(0)
Here is a fantastic scheme of work for summarizing, checking and reviewing the story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Each lesson looks at each Chapter in detail, recounting key scenes, images, vocabulary and contains lots of speaking, writing and discussion tasks for students. This review could be either combined with other schemes, used at the end as a review, or used alongside the book as there is enough for material for at least (8-10) lessons. This scheme worked well with mixed ability KS3 learners in Years 8 and 9, and was also used as exam/assessment review practice for KS4 students. However, activities can be easily changed and differentiated as required.

Includes: teaching plan for 5 sessions teaching resources and answers SPAG revision presentation 5-minute SPAG revision presentation Session 1 - Recap persuasive writing features; revise adverbs of possibility, identifying the verb/clause being modified and punctuating accurately. Discuss tricks invented by Fred/George; list them, adding extras thought up by children. Design adverts for these. Spelling homework: words with ‘silent’ letters. Session 2 - Explain Hogwarts has a fine history of troublemakers, including Fred and George. Revise active and passive voice using slide presentation, concentrating on identifying the voice of a sentence and changing it. Make links to how voice can be selected to write persuasively, manipulating the emphasis of a sentence. Session 3 - Read the extract where Hagrid teaches his first lesson ending in Malfoy injured. Discuss how subordinate clauses are used to add information about time, cause or place. Ask children to identify, add, punctuate and write subordinate clauses. Write a short recount, using subordinate clauses. Session 4 - Introduce today’s texts which follow what happens after Malfoy is attacked by Buckbeak. Give tips for understanding it and make links to informal language of dialogue. Children discuss and read texts, making inferences and explaining the meaning of words in context. They answer test-style questions. Session 5 - Today children write a persuasive text, saying why Buckbeak should be spared. Rehearse persuasive features and include grammar focuses: adverbs of possibility to present opinions as fact or strengthen assertions, passive language to remove the agent and the blame, subordinate clauses to add reasons. SPAG Revision Children revise adverbs for possibility, and the active and passive voices. They identify subordinate clauses and study the grammatical features of persuasive writing. This unit is part of a larger block of Harry Potter themed revision plans that cover all of the required revision for the Year 6 English SATs, including the SPAG.

The Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality writing sequence

(1)
This is a unit of 15 lesson on PowerPoint slides, which can be condensed or extended depending on the confidence of the class, that is based on the amazing book ‘Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality’ by David Roberts. My year 6 class absolutely loved learning about the Suffragettes -especially as extreme activism has been in the news so much recently! You will need to buy a copy of the book. The unit consists of two ‘big writes’. A formal letter to a Prime Minister and a short story/recount about the day that the Suffragettes interrupted a parliamentary meeting. The lessons that lead up to the ‘big writes’ all teach the class the necessary grammatical elements and writing features that they can include in their writing. Each lesson has a grammar starter and grammar embedded into it for SATs revision. Many of the lessons have differentiation for your lower attaining writers and suggestions for how to challenge your more confident writers. I have included reading comprehensions which can be completed in your Reading lessons or for homework if you don’t have time to get through all the reading in class. This unit can be continued after with a biography about Emmeline Pankhurst or Millicent Fawcett.
