Use this planning template to consolidate and reflect your thinking when planning lessons. The template is focused on supporting progress for all learners. When using the plan it is suggested that you begin by populating the 'Expected Learning Outcomes' section first, then think about how you will find out what they know already and what you have learned.

Set of resources used in the year 4 topic of creating images with poetry, similes and metaphors.
A great idea is for the children to describe a beach using similes and metaphors.
Includes homework ideas, display material and many worksheets around the topic! Enjoy!
Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted.
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop.

A revision resource to help students consolidate and retain key information about the 15 poems in the 'Power and Conflict' anthology for the new AQA English Literature specification (first exams in 2017).
There is a slide for each poem with four questions/statements designed to get the students recalling and applying their knowledge of the poems.
The resource can be used in a number of ways:
15 separate lesson starter slides
Print and use as a revision booklet
Use for group work/speed dating tasks with students feeding back their ideas about the poems to the rest of the class.
The slides follow a common format in order for students to get used to the revision approach.
