Deep marking a piece of work for 30 pupils can be a time-consuming process. Especially if you have a heavy KS3 English timetable and have 90 year 7 books to deep mark by Monday morning. ( 3 hours per set!): Often a 'marking conversation' in pupils' books mean you write the same 'next steps' comments because you were assessing a particular writing or reading technique. These stickers mean you have a bank of relevant 'next steps' comments that can be printed on standard address labels by reprographics to give you some of your precious time back. (Or they can be cut out and glued into books). 18 different detailed comments for writing and 13 for reading. They fit directly with the APP reading and writing assessment grids for English. in PDF and Word format.

It includes major poems, simplified, about nature, visions and love, with fiction extracts from Jane Austen. This approach sets literature in its period, allowing students to explore a world of ideas, linked to a historical period they may have studied.<br />

The decision to drop the Atomic Bomb on Hiroshima had consequences far beyond the people in that Japanese city. It changed the world. This activity aims to give a little background to the development as well as some information about the actual consequences on the people in the city. <br />
Firstly the students will look at the science of the Atomic Bomb. What is it that makes it work? Secondly, they will look at what happened when the bombs were dropped. <br />
The third aspect is the most important one. The aim of the task is for the students themselves to decide if the decision was the right one. This is not just empathising with the people who suffered or even those who made the decision. The students will have to decide themselves and then try to influence their classmates about what the correct decision was. <br />
Includes Lesson Plan, PowerPoint and Handouts.<br />

A gentle introduction to Shakespeare for KS3 students.

Hermia - at the start, Helena & Demetrius, the BIG FIGHT SCENE!Assessment planning - S's presentation of H&H. Fun end-of-module games.
As English teachers, one of the most challenging tasks is ensuring that students see the relevance of Shakespeare's work. I LOVE Shakespeare with every fragment of my heart, and I spend an inordinate amount of time developing resources to make my kids feel the same way!
This worksheet is a psychoanalysis of Lady Macbeth. A modern interpretation could view her as suffering from mental health issues - have your students analyse her actions and 'diagnose' her potential illness.
This can open up debate about the human nature of Shakespeare's work and also a wider conversation about mental health; a tricky but necessary topic to cover in your classroom.
I sincerely hope you enjoy this resource and that it buys you a little breathing space!
