Supertato - KS1 (Theme - Superheroes)

Supertato - KS1 (Theme - Superheroes)

Year 1 - Theme of Superheroes. Read the story Supertato. DT project - design and make a Supertato. We used the TASC wheel to structure the project. Letter from the Evil Pea - I left ‘bad messages’ from the Evil Pea around the school. Whoever read these messages turned bad. My TAs were mixing up all of the toys, and sitting on the tables. The children were in shock at first! Then, someone decided to make posters that had good messages on them to turn everyone back good. We focused on what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ meant.

PAPER    1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

PAPER 1, question 2- 5 (AQA GCSE English Language 8700 )

What is in this bundle? This bundle contains 20 full lessons on powerpoint with supporting worksheets, activities and videos for questions 2 - 5 of the AQA paper 1 exam. It also contains bite sized assessments for some of the tougher questions and independent study material. It contains a wide selection of texts and references from extracts from Divergent, Atonement, Dracula, Orwells 1984, Graham Greenes The Destructors and Stephens Kings The Body (Stand By Me). The total amount of the individual resources combined as a bundle is £53.00 but I’m willing to sell at £20, saving you 62% What type of lessons are they? My style is very much about class participation, student ownership of learning and quick pace. Lessons come with starters, plenaries, paired, group and independent activities which last from 5 /10 / 15 / 20 and 30 mins at a time. I teach 3 hour sessions therefore all lesson have enough material to fill 3 hours. I also like to base parts of my sessions around pop culture and current issues in order to engage students and demonstrate that English is not a subject or skill confined to the classroom but rather it is a life long skill with real relevance in the world. I also like English to have an element of fun and try to encourage students to have fun with language and encourage creativity. Many lessons cover a range of levels as I teach mixed level classes, I use supportive techniques such as sentence starters, word banks and peer assessment and self assessment.

Huge Gingerbread Man Resources and Activities

Huge Gingerbread Man Resources and Activities

30 pages of fun … To support the topic of the Gingerbread Man! My class adore this story, so I created Gingerbread Man themed resources for them to use to support my teaching and their learning. In this pack you will find… Gingerbread Man speech bubbles to encourage creative writing (2 versions included). Lined paper with a Gingerbread Man border for children to write on (my class wrote their own versions of the story!). Numbers on Gingerbread Men (I use these as flash cards, ask the children to place them into number order, daily interventions, etc). Cut and stick the gingerbread men into number order activity sheet (two versions: numbers 1-10 and numbers 11-20). Design your own Gingerbread Man sheet. Lovely Gingerbread Man themed bunting to decorate your classroom (mine is in my role play area and my writing area!). Pre writing trace the Gingerbread Man’s tracks sheet to develop fine motor skills, pencil grip and control. Number lines (two versions: numbers 1-10 and numbers 1-20). 56 Gingerbread men addition cards (completely differentiated to target a range of mathematical abilities from addition with numbers under 5 to addition with numbers over 20). I hope your class enjoy these resources as much as mine did! The Teacher Traveller

GCSE English Language, Paper 1 Question 5, AQA - writing Haiku's

GCSE English Language, Paper 1 Question 5, AQA - writing Haiku's

This is a fun, lively student centered lesson which revolves around team work activities and allowing the students to push their creativity and imagination. Many students struggle with imagination when it comes to question 5 and many panic, especially as it holds so many marks. This lesson uses images to inspire a range of vocabulary, language features and ideas for a storyline all within the planning of a haiku, therefore underpinning some of the essential skills needed to answer this question. This is quick paced session with a range of 10 minute activities which encourage independent learning and team work. I found that many students created a range of fantastic haiku’s which I made into a booklet for the students to take away with them. This sort of thing also scores brownie points with the managers and Ofsted but also helps to develop a sense of achievement and self confidence in English, which many students lack. It is also great for the students to know their work in English has a use other than for passing an exam and many feel pride in that. This lesson covers: planning for written work, synonyms, metaphors, similes, personification, hyperbole, long short sentences, imagination but can be adapted to cover much more if so desired. It ends with a peer marking assessment based on the Facebook liking system using emoticons and a chance to act like an examiner and identify language features. There is a homework task, which if desired, could be turned into a in class task other than homework. Hope it helps

3 Little Pigs Assembly Script

3 Little Pigs Assembly Script

Assembly script all about the 3 little pigs...with a twist ending. Great literacy link as the script is written using rhyming couplets. I taught Roald Dahl's animal poems alongside traditonal tales before this assembly. Wonderful unit!
