IGCSE Edexcel English B Revision brochure

IGCSE Edexcel English B Revision brochure

This is an information sheet I made for my Year 10 and 11 students for their end of term exam. The exam is an hour shorter than the standard IGCSE English B exam, so the creative writing based on the two texts is left out, but the advice should otherwise (hopefully) be useful for revision. Template is from Word.

Holiday writing project with frames

Holiday writing project with frames

This is a diary template to encourage EAL / ESL students to continue their writing development over holiday periods, when a long recess can result in a plateauing of progress. Although 60 pages long, the resource can be printed in booklet form, which requires only 15 sheets of A4 paper. It suggests topics for extended writing based on personal experiences likely to be had over a break from school. It also includes a section where students can write brief notes about what they do each day, to be used as reminders for when they write their longer pieces later on. It could be suggested to students that they make sketches or add photos from their phones/cameras to illustrate their experiences. Another use for the booklet could be to invent some entertaining entries on those topics not personally experienced, possibly using imagined characters and/or a downloaded photo as a stimulus. At the back of the diary, each topic for extended pieces of writing has suggestions for content and most have scaffolds/writing frames with sentence starters and simple structures that students are most likely to need. Not all topics have to be attempted; a wide range has been included to make it more likely that students will be able to do a reasonable number of more extended pieces in addition to their daily notes. They are divided into 3 sections: - 5 topics to write about before the holiday starts - 25 topics to write about during the holidays - 5 topics that encourage reflection (at the end of the holidays) There is also space for writers to create their own topics. The diary may also be useful for other writers who need help with structure and ideas before they can begin to craft texts- reluctant writers and students with SEN, for example.

PETAL Paragraph Learning Mat for Literacy, English and Whole School

PETAL Paragraph Learning Mat for Literacy, English and Whole School

This is a clear and concise learning mat that guides students through how to structure a PETAL paragraph. On two slides, which can be printed in colour and reused as learning mats or given to students to keep, the PETAL structure is explained. One side gives an explanation as to what each letter stands for and what should be included. The second side gives students a range of sentence openers to help them write their response. Also included on the very clear, concise and colourful learning mat are a list of connectives, and a reminder that the PETAL structure does not need to be followed exactly (such as the technique may come just before the evidence).
