Going Places KS4-KS5 Transition Lesson Pack

Going Places KS4-KS5 Transition Lesson Pack

Network West Midlands is an organisation that connects all public transport in the West Midlands. This includes Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Coventry, Walsall, Solihull and Wolverhampton. Transport is an essential part of our daily lives. Whether we are travelling for school, work, or leisure there are many ways we can get across the region. With the impact of pollution from cars across the West Midlands and the UK as a whole there is a need to explore how we can improve and promote sustainable travel. These resources will help students learn more about the different types of transport, how to use them safely and effectively, and the roles that different forms of travel can have on the economy and the environment. The lessons included in this pack have been designed with flexibility in mind. They can be delivered as individual lessons or as a complete set of three. We have also created supporting resources that can accompany the lessons or you can use your own.

Simple and compound sentences bundle

Simple and compound sentences bundle

Three lessons that teach students how to recognise, punctuate and compose simple and compound sentences. Each lesson includes worksheets with explanations, examples and practice exercises as well as Powerpoint presentations that can be used to guide the lesson and display correct answers. Lessons are organised as follows: Lesson 1: how to recognise when a simple sentence is complete and requires a full stop. For the final task students are given an informative article about the Titanic which contains no full stops or sentence-signalling capital letters. They must insert full stops in the correct places. Lesson 2: how coordinating conjunctions can be used to combine simple sentences into compound sentences (and when joining commas should be included). Students are given pairs of simple sentences which they then join with coordinating conjunctions. Lesson 3: how semi-colons can be used to join simple sentences and form compound sentences. Students practise using semi-colons and linking adverbs to combine simple sentences into compound sentences.
