Paper 1: Section A - Full Scheme - Middle Year 9/10

This is an entire scheme of work with a variety of extracts from different cultures, writers, backgrounds and time periods. It is a 4 week scheme but may last longer. I would recommend following up with a walk and talk mock and peer-assessment before completing a final assessment. I have a free one of these to go with the PIXL Woman in Black mock elsewhere!

Year 6 Leavers Assembly - Prison Break

Year 6 Leavers Assembly - Prison Break

This assembly script is designed for Y6 leavers - focusing on being locked in ‘primary jail’ for various crimes and needed to perform tasks to escape to secondary school. Each child has committed a crime (e.g. crimes against handwriting/dad dancing etc). one child from each task escapes until they join a group at the end, who perform a dance - therefore when adapting to suit your class, you may need to change the crimes or order of children. It could be adapted to suit any transition year. Our class thoroughly enjoyed this play.

10 Minute Task - Slogan Evaluation

10 Minute Task - Slogan Evaluation

This task is designed to be used right at the start of a lesson that will develop the skill of evaluation. I have used this resource as a starter activity that is on the desk waiting for students whilst they’re filtering into the classroom. The first 10 minutes of the lesson is spent with the students evaluating how successful certain slogans are which I found was successful at showing them how evaluation could look outside of the classroom.

Animal Farm: Quotations, Contextual Information and Vocabulary WEEKLY TASKS

Animal Farm: Quotations, Contextual Information and Vocabulary WEEKLY TASKS

This is an extremely useful resource to be used alongside the study of George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’. There are three booklets included that cover ten weeks of homework. The first booklet contains weekly comprehensive homework tasks that requires pupils to learn three key quotations, a short piece of contextual information and three pieces of vocabulary. It also contains a weekly task. The second booklet contains weekly tests to check their learning. These tests are cumulative, so require pupils to retain knowledge from previous weeks. The final booklet contains the answers to all weekly tests to enable teachers to quickly and accurately mark pupils’ work. This could alternatively be distributed to pupils in order for them to self or peer mark. These booklets have proved to be invaluable in preparing our pupils for the demands of GCSE English Literature. Their ability to retain quotations and discuss the text confidently has greatly improved, and the pupils can see their learning is very clearly structured.

Act 4 Scene 3 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Act 4 Scene 3 Macbeth GCSE English Literature 9-1

Everything you need to teach Act 4 Scene 3 of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This is also available as part of a bundle whereby a considerable saving can be made; following the full scheme is recommended. The lessons have been created specifically for teaching at GCSE level, and cover the key assessment objectives for 9-1 New-Specification AQA: understanding of the text, language and structure, context/themes/author intent (although equally applicable to other exam boards). Differentiated outcomes and tasks allow you to reach all learners, although I would recommend the lessons specifically for middle to higher ability students. Throughout the scheme, students are encouraged to make notes and annotate the text, as this will be a valuable revision tool when preparing for exams. No fear version is also included as a further scaffolding tool for lower ability learners. Teacher notes are provided on the PowerPoint to help explain and guide you through all phases of the lesson, with a range of interesting and engaging tasks for you to choose from. Importantly, full analysis is provided for all the tasks set, to enable you to lead interesting and engaging discussions which will deepen the students’ appreciation of the text. Strictly speaking, there is a lot more here than you would fit into a 1 hour lesson, so you may wish to spread this over a couple of lessons, or perhaps be a little selective with the tasks you wish to do. PDF version is for preview purposes. Buy in confidence from a TES recommended gold author! If you make a purchase and find the resource useful, why not get another one absolutely free? Simply leave a review for the resource purchased, email with your TES username alongside a link to the resource you would like. Your free resource will then be sent over right away!
