Great development of learning that culminates nicely in the students amending a mock charity advert to include emotive language. Only 4 stars as I did feel it was lacking quite a lot of stretch and challenge. Thanks for the upload :)
Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.
I have created this target sheet to be stuck on the inside cover of Year 5/6 children’s English books. All the targets are for the new curriculum 2014. <br />

This lesson is a fraction investigation and a simpler investigation, is included for any children who are unable to access the harder task. A detailed lesson plan accompanies the children's worksheets as well as all you will need for the whiteboard. The main investigation involves children exploring which fractions can be made from the total number of Smarties, e.g. 1/2 of 40, 1/4 of 40, 1/5 of 40, 1/8 of 40, 1/10 of 40, 1/20 of 40, 1/40 of 40 and linking these to the factors of a number. They also draw conclusions about which of the numbers are prime numbers and give reasons for this. Once they have done one number they eat a Smartie and start again. Whiteboards and pens are required for the warm up activity (on IWB resource). Each child also needs a box of mini Smarties (available in multipacks). The simple investigation looks at which numbers it is possible to find 1/2 of with the children looking for patterns, e.g. even numbers, multiples of 2.
The second set of resources for a Unit on Malorie Blackman's novel 'Noughts and Crosses'. Included within this are a PowerPoint of activities and a student resource, all set for them to use as an independent learning tool. Teacher Notes are also included.
PowerPoint for teaching addition vocabulary and strategies. Presentation includes the learning objectives and the strategies (Number line and partitioning). This can be used as a unit spread over the week or stand alone to reinforce strategies. <br />
Addition Cards are aimed for independent activity after children have been taught the strategies for adding numbers and have gained confidence. The cards promote kinaesthetic learning and also independence as each card contains examples. <br />
Both the Powerpoint as a teaching tool and the Activity Cards may be used across the primary school (KS1, KS2, SEN).
This resource is based on the novel Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman, and should be used before starting reading the book. It allows students to pre-empt the story and understand the importance of a cover and blurb.
The third part of a unit baed on the story of Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. This resource enabled students to look at the topic of division and understand some of the possible reasons for Blackman's choices regarding colour, race and culture.
PowerPoint and Worksheet exploring the use of emotive language in newspapers.
The lesson begins with students discussing what they think emotive language is/where it might be used. Then a series of newspaper titles are shown where the students raise their hands whenever they hear an emotive word. This then leads in to a task where the students have to re-write news headlines so that they are as emotive as possible before analysing an emotive newspaper article.
Timers are built in to the PowerPoint.
Intended to be printed and laminated for a wall display on literary devices. Uses examples from a lot of modern films (lots of Harry Potter!) to make explanations clear and relevant to pupils.
I hope it comes in handy.
These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
