Spies - Revision Prompts - Chapter 10

Spies - Revision Prompts - Chapter 10

One of the ways in which I try to get my classes to focus on developing the quality of their analyses is to make them zoom in on key quotations and explain their importance.These Revision Prompts, therefore, are a series of key quotations from each Chapter that can be used to encourage pupils to explain the authorial method. They can either be projected on the Whiteboard, given as handouts to groups or, perhaps, emailed to students for independent revision.The way I use these is to ask students to explain the context of the quotation and then develop a paragraph which explains what Frayn is trying to achieve with these words. I have uploaded each of the chapters individually - but you can also grab them as part of my Spies Revision Prompts bundle.

Library Challenge Cards

Library Challenge Cards

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.
