English has its own patterns for using stress and intonation. You can change the meaning of a sentence by the way your voice goes up and down. In this activity you will practise the difference between statements and questions.
This is one of 6 lessons that i have uploaded with the same title of 'Reading Skills'. This lesson is a ready to teach powerpoint - you may wish to make slight adaptations to it for your own context - designed to teach what prediction skills are in reading.
This Spanish GCSE activity is supposed to train students' memory for their presentation or general conversation. It also test grammatical awareness. Depending on the group and their ability, you give them 3 -5 minutes to look at the text and read in silence. Then four words will be taken away and they have to write down the missing words. Then you repeat the process and gradually more and more words disappear. At the end, they can try and rewrite the paragraph.
This is a completely original, never seen before resource, as it has been created by myself. I have used the GCSE criteria from both AQA and Edexcel to create a 1-9 style APP grid to help pupils to see what they need to do at each grade band in order to meet the criteria for each assessment objective for the new style GCSE paper 1, pre 1914 task.<br />
The bandings are based on where the skills would fall on old A*-C but ramped up for vigour, using the new terminology. You'll see when you look at the sheet.<br />
The question is styled on an AQA style question and is original - not the current AQA SAMs that are out there - so this gives you something new to work with.<br />
Not only that, the lesson then teaches students HOW to write an answer to a question that focusses on language and structure, naming the techniques.<br />
If you're struggling to teach the new GCSEs, the format of this lesson and the resources with it, will really help you! <br />
The whole resource is the assessment, marking sheet, full lesson and all of the lesson resources. <br />
The next lesson will be to give pupils their books back and get them to attempt to continue marking - after you have marked their work! <br />
Watch them make progress!
This is a training session that I deliver to all of the teachers that I train - at various stages of their career - although NQTs have been the ones that have got the most of it. It is yet another piece of my work that has been seen being used in training sessions where people have paid to go - so blatantly stolen. For that reason, so that no-one else makes a profit out of my work - I offer it out freely to all of my training and teaching colleagues and hope that you get a great deal out of all of the work that I have put in here!
Germany GCSE History – Reichstag Fire
This is one of many lessons that I have uploaded on the history of Germany for GCSE pupils. All of the lessons can be taught together, but each covers a topic so can also be picked up separately. For ease of locating, the title stem is the same: 'Germany GCSE History -'. This is a full PowerPoint lesson, ready to teach, and any relevant resources are also uploaded with it. This lesson’s LO: To come to a conclusion about who started the Reichstag Fire from looking at different sources of information
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. <br />
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.

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
