Thank you I think it will be really good to teach this as a casual lesson for year 6 as well. Great resource. would be great to team it up with the you tube video about all the popular Shakespearean quotes.
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.

This unit of work is presented as an illustrated booklet that follows each chapter of David Walliams book - Gangsta Granny. It has been designed to help developing readers engage with and extend their comprehension of the story through a range of activities including; finding answers to set questions, word search, poetry, creative and report writing and drawing. It looks sensitively at the exploration of an eleven year old boy's emotions as he experiences the love and loss of a close relative. It also gives us a humorous glimpse into the shady realms of 'cat burglary'. It is one of a series of my David Walliams booklets. Good for guided reading and extended reading homework. Illustrations used are by 'Openclipart'. There is also an original poem about a child's Granny - can be used to encourage pupils to create their own.
Covers the main topic areas and keywords from the AQA specification. <br />
This can be used as a whole class activity or these can be printed as double-sided cards for students to use in small groups. The aim of the task is to select the question that the least people got right when asked the same question. Who therefore can get the lowest score is the winner. There are a few pointless answers in there too. <br />
Great for challenge and to really extend the most able while also supports other students with reinforcing keywords.<br />
Additional Chemistry AQA - Keyword and definition bingo.<br />
This contains a set of questions and a pack of pre-made cards. This can be used as a starter, plenary or revision activity.<br />
This covers all of the key concepts in the unit. Other bingo games are available for the other units too.
3 different keyword and definition spinners. <br />
These are printed out and then cut out. The windows on the top sheet are cut out to reveal the word and its definition below. These work best if the two sheets are secured with a pin. <br />
This is great for keyword revision and for students working in groups testing each other. <br />
These are available for biology, chemistry and physics units.<br />
Revision quiz for paper 2 of the Additional Science AQA specification. <br />
39 questions.<br />
Can be completed as a revision exercise. (B2,C2 &P2)<br />
This is a mixture of multiple choice and open ended questions. Pupils can hold up cards or whiteboards to indicate answers. You can then see where the issues are.
Materials required: Long string, pegs and print all three documents out.
Personailse the first document to your class.
Step 1: Put a string across the room
Step 2: Start by asking th epupils where impossible and certain cards go on the string then the even chance one.
Step 3: Give each pair a card and ask them to decide where it goes on the string.
Step 4: get pupils to stand up and put the card on the string.
Step 5: Let pupils discuss and rearrange
I've adapted this from a powerpoint using freeze frames from &'The Simpson&';s' version of Macbeth which aired in September (this was kindly provided by another TES user). I laminated this and had students work in pairs. They used this in conjunction with the card sort activity to place a card over the frame which contained that particular feature. At the end of the activity students should conclude that this is a tragedy and be able to identify the elements that make it so.
Lesson with Powerpoint looking at Shakespeare's insults. To take the fear out of the language, students practise delivering the insults to one another. I created the Elizabethan insults dictionary to help students decode the meanings and then create their own Elizabethan insults.
This poetry resource examines Salome by Carol Ann Duffy. It contains a worksheet activity, a psychiatric evaluation of Salome useful in exploring the poems persona. The second resource is a powerpoint presentation, the starter exercise, showing quotes about women which, bar one, emphasise women as frail and passive. Spot the odd one out. Discussion: how society views women and violence. Slides show female serial killers: some women are capable of extreme violence.
Full lesson! Starter activity with Elizabethan pronouns, a worksheet with matching phrases to their modern meanings and a glossary of Elizabethan vocabulary. This builds towards an activity where students create their own brief drama script using Elizabethan language.
Please find enclosed within this download the following resources:
A fully interactive and animated PowerPoint that shows how turn just regular dialogue into a play script with engaging stage directions, actions and emotions.
In addition to this, the PowerPoint includes a learning objective, differentiated success criteria and a count-down timer so children can see how much longer they have left in the lesson. The PowerPoint also has a starter activity (adverbial openers) to settle down the class as they start the lesson and get their 'english heads' on.
Finally, included within the resource is an extension activity and a help sheet for children who, after the presentation, are still unsure as to how to include stage directions.
As always, I have used every resource I sell with my own classes (both past and present) to ensure they are correctly pitched and can be used successfully to aid children in their learning.
