Pupil Friendly Success Criteria with Peer Assessment

Pupil Friendly Success Criteria with Peer Assessment

I use this with my pupils in Year 3 to show what I am looking for in their piece of work. This also is used for them to colour the smiley faces if they believe they have achieved the success criteria. Peers can also assess by colouring in the smiley faces and lastly, as the teacher, I would then colour in the smiley faces to show what they have achieved too.

Jungle Poetry Frame, Yr2

Jungle Poetry Frame, Yr2

This hand-illustrated, jungle-themed poetry frame sheet spurs young, independent writers to draw on their imagination and passive vocabulary to create an expressive poem about it, and its inhabitants. The line-starters invite description and similes, and the pictures offer inspiration. Ideas can be further explored through the colouring opportunities. While intended primarily as a literacy support and creativity launch pad, the sheet also presents a window onto the natural world. For best outcomes, prepare children first with discussion, pictures or a video of a jungle and the animal types featured here, and act out trying to make your way through a jungle’s exotic undergrowth - in the heat. This poetry frame has been successfully tried and tested during my poetry workshops, as all my TES resources have to date.

Personification generator! Use personification in poetry - spooky woods and spooky buildings - dice

Personification generator! Use personification in poetry - spooky woods and spooky buildings - dice

Included: detailed lesson plan, presentation, two personification generator dice activities This is a carefully planned, fully resourced and differentiated lesson about personification aimed at upper key stage 2 writers. I used this session to create poetry with personification, but it would work equally well with descriptive writing or story settings. The lesson is structured as follows: Warm up What is figurative language? What is personification? Can you personify your noun using one of the prompts on the screen? Shared writing 2 differentiated dice-based personification generator activities - children use these to create stunning examples of personification about spooky woods (one verse) or spooky buildings (two verse: inside/outside writing) - try it! Peer assessment Fully road tested - in one session the whole class had written superb personification poems (example included), and they really enjoyed the spooky theme. I hope your class have the same success.

Comparative poetry criteria for students and teachers.

Comparative poetry criteria for students and teachers.

A simple resource that I use when marking a student’s comparative essay on poetry. Can be used for either AQA Power and Conflict cluster or Love and Relationships. Has the examination specification but an easier concept. Can be highlighted for students or they can highlight what they have done. Has the AO from AQA on too.

Lesson on comparison

Lesson on comparison

A lesson focused on developing comparison skills for English Language Paper 2. One text is nonfiction ‘‘The camera is not a shield’: life and death as a war photographer’ by Tom Seymour; the other text is the poem ‘War Photographer’ by Carol Ann Duffy. This does mean that both texts are not nonfiction as they would be in the exam.
