The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017)

The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a simple crossword based on last week's news events. There are THREE more FREE crosswords based on cities and countries around the world. The World News Crossword (September 17th, 2017) is a great activity for supporting literacy, logic, and research skills. It quietly helps students with handwriting issues and it sneakily encourages students to learn more about their word and to discuss why... Why? Why did the UN impose more sanctions on North Korea? Why did Russia suggest UN peacekeepers for Crimea? Why are Australian landowners encouraging Australians to eat kangaroos? And why is Amsterdam's government wanting to discourage tourism? These are just some of the discussions that will pop out of this week's crossword. Or maybe they'll ask where? Where is Lahore? Sri Lanka? New Zealand? South Africa? Myanmar? North Korea? Paris? Barcelona? Crimea? It's a pdf so it can be downloaded quickly, saved to a flash drive, opened and printed quickly for use at a moment's notice.

Paper 1 Question 5 AQA English Language SPEC 8700

Paper 1 Question 5 AQA English Language SPEC 8700

This is a well paced, exciting lesson filled with fun and team games. Paper 1 Question 5 is worth a lot of marks and today the examiners expect students to use a wide range of sentence forms and language features to obtain those marks. Many students jump into this question as it looks deceptively easy and they will forget to PLAN for what the examiner wants to see. This lesson is a fun well paced lesson to help students to remember what to plan for in this question. Using games and short activities, students will build up a bank of language features and sentences on the topic of Donald Trump over the course of the lesson to use in their final task. Hope it helps
