Revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! For use on pupil shared areas, all questions modeled on past SATs. <br />
Great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. <br />
This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests.<br />
Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. <br />
Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! <br />
(NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions!!- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)<br />

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.
This contains 7 different lessons (nothing complicated but with a good basis to form a lesson around them). There are also some links to background reading of dystopian literature and why we read dystopian literature.
The resource also has a mini SOW that I did over 7 lessons. There are also some extracts that can be used for the unseen part of the exam.
There is also some background info on Orwell as a writer, why he wrote liked he did and what his purpose was as an author. This is good for AO3.
There is also an essay planner that opens up in Publisher that can be manipulated and redesigned and this is good for helping students plan their essays. There are also some sentences starters to help with students with introducing different points or arguments.
The lessons are NOT extensive but still provide some good info on Orwell, dystopia and attempts to cover different themes that may come up in the exam. Again, I only did this for 7 weeks (as I was only covering).
Lesson 1: Discuss how Orwell presents the theme of control in chapter 1 of 1984. Make reference to Orwell’s use of setting and the diary. This includes key terminology and specific text references with detailed analysis of these scenes. There is also a presentation on Orwell (context and background). There is also an unseen extract that teachers can use in relation to the essay question.
Lesson 2: A different presentation on Orwell (more context and about him as a writer). There is also a 9 page document about the life and times of Orwell which is very good for context.
Lesson 3: An essay on Orwell and dystopia and an article about why we read dystopia.
Lesson 4: Another extract that will help with the unseen part of the exam. This lesson looks at 'how is reality manipulated for the benefit of those in power in 1984?'
Lesson 5: A simple extract to use to look at the theme of symbolism - NOTHING from 1984 is given here.
Lesson 6: A3 essay planner. There are also two essays on Orwell and dystopia that are extremely beneficial.
Lesson 7: Extremely detailed resources on Orwell and his use of language.
2 pdf articles on the dystopia as a genre.
Summary of 1984 in a colour-coded/ thematic design that links to AOs.
Links for background reading on dystopia.
