AFOREST Techniques - Adverts and Leaflets

AFOREST Techniques - Adverts and Leaflets

Here is an AFOREST lesson that gets students to pick out the persuasive techniques they can see in an advert. It then goes onto analysing leaflets; for this I usually go and grab a handful of leaflets from the Tourist Information or a service station. Then you can use the middle part of the lesson and the work sheets to get students to identify and explain persuasive techniques used. This is a great lesson if your students are creating a leaflet or brochure for their assessment. It has always worked really well with Y7 and 8s.

Outstanding lesson and resources on Twycross Zoo

Outstanding lesson and resources on Twycross Zoo

As part of our rainforest South America topic our Year 5s went to Twycross Zoo. The day before I had my performance management observation. This is the lesson plan and resources in which I was grading 'outstanding' in every area - and the kids loved it! Lesson based around Literacy/Geography link looking at the Twycross Zoo website and using a range of Year 5/6 Literacy objectives to complete a group task and also a challenge reviewing a range of learning across Literacy. The lesson went really well and I would definitely do it again for an observation or if Ofsted came.
