Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Description of Hogwarts!

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - Description of Hogwarts!

This engaging and informative lesson enables students to make precise interpretations of the descriptive language used by J.K Rowling in her descriptions of Hogwarts in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.’ They also learn how the depiction of settings can have a profound impact upon the tone and atmosphere of a novel, and apply this understanding (along with their knowledge of the key language devices) to form their own vivid and imaginative descriptions of magical places. The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through: - Understanding the power of places and settings, especially the impact that they have on atmosphere and tone; - Defining each of the different types of descriptive devices, through completing an interactive group activity; - Reading extracts from the text in which Rowling describes Hogwarts, and identifying the language techniques used to paint an image of place in the minds of the readers; - Analysing the effectiveness of each of Rowling's descriptive devices; - Creating their own description of a magical place, utilising appropriate and effective descriptive devices throughout; - Peer assessing each other's learning attempts. Included is: - Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive; - Cards for the Card Sorting Activity;' - Extracts from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone; - 'Inside Hogwarts' analysis worksheet; - Writing to Describe Helpsheet All resources are provided in Word (for easy editing) and PDF (to ensure formatting remains fixed between different computers). There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with year 8 classes, however colleagues have used them for between years 3 and 10 with some adaptations. All images are licensed for commercial use, and image rights are listed on the last page of the presentation.

Adventures of Edward Tulane Year 4 Literacy 6 week plan and resources

Adventures of Edward Tulane Year 4 Literacy 6 week plan and resources

6 Week planning (weekly plans and an overview of 6 weeks provided to show which sections to read and outcomes) Used for Year 4 but can be used for Year 5 too. Resources as well for HA, MA and LA. Examples of writing attached to use as modelling for children Did this plan for an NQT who found this so easy to follow and children were so engaged by all the different types of activities. Meets many different Literacy objectives covering fiction and non fiction. Planning includes: story mapping Letter writing Poetry Information leaflets Reading comprehension / character description and setting description (Meets many guided reading objectives here too!) A story writing using skills learnt throughout the unit. (A very different way to challenge children when writing stories) The NQT who used this plan got graded good with outstanding elements when teaching 2 of the lessons throughout this unit of work. They have now used again this year!
