Resources to support the teaching of 'Anil&' from the AQA anthology &';Sunlight on the Grass'. Intended as a CA for an English-only group to fulfil other cultures / prose requirement. Easily adapted for other purposes. Much of it is adapted from AQA&'s resources - the word quarry and &';what is Anil scared of?' sheets mentioned can be downloaded directly from AQA&'s digital anthology. \n\nPlease note: QWERTY is our version of PEE.
The purpose of the unit is to firstly engage the pupils’ interest in, and enjoyment of, reading, whilst giving teachers the opportunity to assess the pupils reading and writing skills. The unit is differentiated (and uploaded) according to text, with each short story aimed at a different reading age. For copyright reasons I have not uploaded any of the short stories, but they can easily be bought or downloaded from the internet.
These are the powerpoints I have made based on the resources from the AQA digital anthology site. There is a powerpoint for each short story in the anthology. Many of the tasks have been adapted for co-operative learning (many of the activities are based on Kagan co-operative structures). I welcome useful feedback. Thanks.
A Full scheme of work covering writing objectives using various of Roald Dahl's works (including Matilda and The BFG). It is easy to differentiate for KS 2 (7-11 year olds) and KS3 (11-14 year olds)and contains many worksheets for activities including vocabulary and punctuation use as well as descriptive and creative writing techniques.
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.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students.
