Suspense Writing: Full Writing Scheme of Work

This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story. It is adapted from the government initiative 'Improving Childrens Writing' getting children from level 3 to level 4. I have changed it a little, so that it is also suitable for level 2 and 3 as well. Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.

The Tempest SoW for KS3 (suits low ability or SEN)

The Tempest SoW for KS3 (suits low ability or SEN)

This is a Power-Point with over 100 slides on Shakespeare's The Tempest. It is aimed at low ability KS3 and was made for special needs groups (Autism, Dyslexia and ADHD, predominantly). Whilst a text can be read alongside, this unit focuses on very short extracts to help students understand character and theme - whilst making it as accessible as possible to those who struggle. It is recommended students watch the play initially to help develop their visual understanding and then re-watch clips to support what they read. The activities are included in the power-point and worksheets can be printed as individual slides. This can easily be differentiated to challenge students further - and some suggestions are made in the notes section.

Post-Mock Feedback Sheet (Recording Device or Typing)

Post-Mock Feedback Sheet (Recording Device or Typing)

This is a very good resource that I gave to my examination students who are using recording devices or typing their examination answers. The questions within the feedback sheet were given after their mocks but can be also used for in-class preparation. The answers will give you knowledge of what the student hopes to focus on so you can plan what improvements need to be targeted.

Armada Portrait Analysis

Aimed at KS3 to help them develop annotation skills. The source is differentiated so students can complete annotation labels, write them themselves or cut and paste the labels around the source. There is an additional cloze exercise to be completed (or copied out) to help students learn to make notes and then write up their ideas. Whilst made for SEN (Autism/Dyslexia), this would work well as a starter for other ability levels.
