Super lessons, really well planned. I have a boy heavy class next year and think these lessons will keep them captured. Have you got any other resources? Could you please forward them to me PetraBourne@hotmail.co.uk Thank you so much
Following requests from my MTP planning I have attached my weekly plans and flips.
If you would like the resources (there are a few) please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
please don't message on here as I am really sorry I forget to check!
Feedback comments greatly received :)
Final week of the historical setting block, thought we'd link it to our Viking Topic. Spent the first 1-2 weeks looking at the street child, language used (adverbial phrases etc) and adjectives.\n\nCreated for year 4, could be differentiated for different years. Work is differentiated quite widely. LA can change an element of the story for the big write and HA can write their own version, or you can hide the ending and ask them to write their own ending to the story.
Lesson planning that links with History theme - Tudors, rich and poor. Texts include 'The Prince, the Cook and the Cunning King' by Terry Deary, 'The Queen's Token' by Pamela Oldfield and the dvd of 'The Prince and the Pauper' (Aidan Quinn, Alan Bates). We also read 'My Friend, Walter' by Michael Morpurgo.
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. Designed to lead to a comparative essay on 'The Road' and 'The Handmaid's Tale' but easily adaptable for your choice of novels or to stand alone as a study of the four short stories included.
