National Reading Test - First Day of High School - Answers Included - Preparation for WJEC English

National Reading Test - First Day of High School - Answers Included - Preparation for WJEC English

This is a National Reading Test designed to prepare Year 9 students. It is based on a narrative text about a first day of high school. I wrote it to mimic what students will need to write a narrative in Unit 2 Section B of the WJEC English Language examination. The NRT is direct preparation for WJEC English Language GCSE with 'words in context', 'sequencing' and 'access, search and retrieve'. An answer sheet is included to make peer assessment an effective option that will help reduce workload for the teacher.

Multicultural Bundle

Multicultural Bundle

I have created presentations about different aspects of living in harmony with other people from other nations. It is great for harmony day and also the International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination. I have included a range of different presentations of different countries around the world. You are able to compare and contrast lives in other places. I have included stories from India, as this is the largest ethnic minority in the UK, and I thought it would be nice to see the differences and similarities between the two countries. I have also included 2 presentations about the Brexit (Brexit Conversation Ideas and International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - which covers Britain pre- and post Brexit and its crime rates).

Entry level FS English and ESOL Resource based on the release of the new £1 Coin

Entry level FS English and ESOL Resource based on the release of the new £1 Coin

This resource should take a few hours to deliver and has a mix of reading comprehension, speaking and listening (discussion points), embedded maths and a grammar session on adjectives and comparatives. The topic is the imminent launch of the new £1 coin.I have tried this lesson out on my ESOL class with good results although it would fit school children and entry level FS English learners equally. Some aspects could be missed out or built upon, depending on the group of students.I started off the lesson with a discussion on the coins used in the different countries of the students and we talked about the value of each currency against the £1. Using the first resource sheet, New Quid on the Block, we then talked about the prevalence of counterfeit money which led into the launch of the new coin. Information for the paired activity can be found on the business leaflet.The 'New Quid on the Block' question sheet is based on the Royal Mint advert. There is also an information sheet listing interesting facts on coins which has been produced by the Royal Mint.I have included a sheet entitled 'Changing Dimensions' which introduces the grammar session on adjectives and comparatives. Finally, the word search could be used as the plenary.
