12 lessons fully resourced with PowerPoints, worksheets and mark schemes.
The 12 lessons consist of formal and informal letters, PACS planning (purpose,audience, content and style) and review writing. The last two lessons of the SOW are more creative and interactive with a group review.
A resource created for my low ability year 11s.
I go through Mametz Wood in some detail, as a revision exercise, as they have annotated and been taught this poem before.
The process of responding is broken down and I have used images to direct students to the 4 most horrific images in the poem.
By scaffolding and modelling the first poem, the second poem is for students to have a go themselves.
It worked really well!
This resource was created for my year 11s who have had enough of Macbeth, the last final sprint!
The starter exercise is a range of 8 illustrations of Macbeth with three questions attached to them. The questions encourage the pupils to consider:
1. What the scene is
2. What comes before and after it
3. 5 quotations associated with it.
The Macbeth booklet consists of 6 extracts (part A and B questions) and a mark scheme.
This double sided A3 sheet is based around Macduff's reaction to the murder of his wife and children. There is a literacy homophone starter (your and you're).
An image introduction task
An extract from the play
An example paragraph
Self and Peer assessment.
I have included lined boxes for redrafting their responses as a 'next step'.
I created a resource for my year 11s for their Unseen Poetry lesson:
1. Copy of November Story
2. Copy of November Night. Edinburgh
3. Exam questions and response boxes
4. Exam responses to analyse (one paragraph per question has been completed)
5. Mark schemes for part a and b. I also included a simplified AO checklist beside each one too
6. Mark a practice paragraph response.
Here is a collection of lessons, hand outs and assessments. I also typed up a simple version of the novel and have included that too. AQA advised that teaching Jekyll and Hyde should consist of 10 key moments, and this is what my scheme of work centers around. Each key moment has a print out and a PP. Not all PowerPoints have more than one slide, some have been made purely so that we can annotate and work together as a class. i created a tracker for my class, perfect for revision! I hope you find it helpful!

GCSE English Language Paper 2 Question 2 activity. The activity includes extracts from Rose West and Oliver Twist (an extreme contrast!). The question asks for a summary of how people are treated differently in both texts.
The assessment question is: How does Russell use the characters of Mickey and Edward in Blood Brothers to explore ideas about class?
There are various resources here: a planning table, PP, target marking sheets and an example paragraph (for post-assessment reflection).
I collated all of the key terms for both papers and created a booklet for my students, that also includes a few vocabulary lists (other words for 'happy' or 'upset' etc). I have also listed other phrases for the dreaded 'this shows...'.
If you are looking for extensive quotes, themes and motifs then this booklet is not for you. I created this booklet for my low ability year 8, who love the horror genre! The booklet includes:
1. Inference tasks
2. Simple plot
3. Setting comparisons and questions
4. Character profile of the Woman in Black herself
