Bring poetry to life. <br />
A complete unit of work to introduce KS3 students to a wide range of great poetry, from dub poetry performance to Shakespeare's sonnets. <br />
See the plan here to get an overview of the unit: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/ks3-poetry-whole-complete-scheme-unit-of-work-11173132<br />
Each lesson has a Powerpoint presentation and an accompanying worksheet. Included are lesson objectives, pre-starters, starters, learning activities, application of learning, and plenaries. Differentiation and extension are included where appropriate.<br />
Lessons are designed to generate lots of thinking and discussion. Some have carefully structured group work, some ask students to perform, some are based on images from art - each lesson is different and engaging. Students learn as much from writing their own poems as from analysing poems in detail.<br />
Also featured are materials to help students achieve their best in an extended essay, which would form a natural assessment activity.<br />
Most importantly, everything is easily editable, so you can make it your own. It is complete as it is, but each teacher is different, so it can be used as a foundation for your own planning.
If you are interested in something that is a different yet meaningful cross-curricula learning experience with elements of: wonder, awe, poetry, philosophy, science, nature, geography, team work, art, appreciation of nature and so much more, then this is for you.<br />
This lesson is called the magical lesson of wonder because that is the desired outcome. A cynic may think that this is just observing nature through microscopes but it is so much more than that in part due to the fascinating web resource used for the lesson.<br />
Suitable for any age or KS (but designed for KS2 or KS1) as the element of wonder and magic is something that never tires.<br />
You will need microscopes or magnifying glass (USB microscopes ideally) and access to objects from nature or a selection you provide. <br />
Turn down the lights, roll down the blinds, play the music and begin the magical lesson of wonder
This PDF gives hints, tips & advice for teachers to build some essential voice skills & awareness into their professional practice.<br />

This is my version of a random name generator.
'Ultimate' as it allows you to select whole class, just SEN, just G&T, or girls/boys.
It also uses a big red button to run the generator which looks great on an interactive board as you can just whack it to bring up a name.
Setup information is included on the first sheet.

If you don't need to select specific groups of students, check out my PowerPoint Toolkit on here which is much better in every way (apart from not selecting groups).
Which is the independent variable and which the dependent? And what are control variables? Let this song do the teaching, to the tune of ‘If you’re happy and you know it!’ Initially written with my Year 11s in mind to help them prepare for their Physics practical and associated exam, this song is now used across science and from Year 7! Attached are the video I made (also youtube link), my original powerpoint, the words which can be stuck in a student’s book or used as a poster in the lab. Enjoy
