This is a full scheme of work (25lessons) designed for Y9. It has been created with the new 2017 GCSE Literature in mind. <br />
The scheme details activities linked to the main themes and characters in the novel with some power points to support. <br />
There is a lesson by lesson break down, along with ample opportunities for differentiation and stretch and challenge for the more able. Lesson 7 requires the teacher to source the materials linked to context. Other lessons that don't have a power point are either assessment lessons or reading lessons. <br />
This scheme may also be useful for current Y10 studying the novel for GCSE CA and examination.

Using short extracts from both modern and classic texts, as well as visual stimulus material, this lesson focuses on how implied meaning in the description of a setting helps to create an atmosphere. Thus it both helps improve writing generally, but also prepares students for the demands of the new AQA spec English Paper1, fiction reading and writing. Section A is about reading fiction and in section B students have ‘to demonstrate their narrative and descriptive skills in response to a written prompt, scenario or visual image’,
In this writing lesson, students exercise both their close reading of fiction - learning from published authors - and writing creatively ‘to demonstrate their narrative and descriptive skills in response to a written prompt, scenario or visual image’, which is the requirement for AQA's new English Paper 1 Section B creative writing question.<br /><br /><br />

I created this plan and PPT for a job interview where I was asked to teach a year 5/6 class. I based the lesson on their two main topics which were Space and Poetry. I used the fantastic poem 'Six Ways to Look at the Moon' by Pie Corbett in this lesson - included. I also used another fab poem - included. Task was for the children to write their own version of Pie Corbett's poem. PPT easy to follow along while teaching. The 'Six-ways-to-look-at-ordering-a-poem' resource was used as an activity where I cut up the sentences and worked with a focus group to read, re-order the poem - this was great for discussion and for thinking about structure/ language in poem, etc.
