I am an English Teacher at an SEMH secondary school. My resources cover a wide range of key stages and abilities to cater for the complex needs of my students. Often my resources will be designed to appeal to older students with a lower ability content, but they still work well for younger students also. I have a big interest in Phonics, low ability resources with a high interest level for older students, creating useful displays and making stickers to aid in my marking.

I am the qualified Access Arrangements Assessor for my school, additionally, I have responsibility for applying for any access arrangements, creating the folder of evidence to support the application, and speaking with the JCQ Inspector during their annual visit. I always receive compliments from the JCQ inspectors on my record keeping, so I thought this would be a useful resource to share with others. This resource breaks down how I put my evidence folder together to support my access arrangements applications. This resource is current from Autumn Term 2018; the applications I put in this term are for my current Year 10s who will be leaving in 2020, and any new starters to Year 11 since lasy year’s applications. This resource includes the following documents: Suggested Access Arrangements Folder List: a list of everything I include in my folder, icluding an explanation of how I put it together and any tips from my experience. Access Arrangements Cover Sheet Template: for the front of your folder. Data Protection Notice: this is available for free from the JCQ website, but I have included the most up to date one here for your convenience. Form 8 Template: this is available for free from the JCQ website, but I have included the most up to date one here for your convenience. Teacher Records Template: to demonstrate normal way of working within your centre. Teacher Records Template Guidance Sheet Teacher Records Worked Example: for your reference Access Arrangements Staff Training: to help support your request for teaching staff to provide reports supporting your application, and to help staff understand access arrangements as a whole.

Holocaust Memorial Day Video Comprehension Task

Holocaust Memorial Day Video Comprehension Task

(0)
The comprehension questions are based upon a 30-minute-long CBBC Newsround Special called Holocaust: Finding My Family. The documentary follows the story of 14-year-old Maggie as she travels with her grandfather, Steven, and learns about his experiences of the Holocaust. The documentary is narrated by author, Anthony Horrowitz. The documentary was made to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day, but would also be suitable to support any learning relating to World War II or The Holocaust, or as a cover lesson. The question sheets provided come with three levels of differentiation denoted by the stars in the top right corner of the page. An answer sheet is enclosed for easy reference, but there is also a PowerPoint which enables the teacher to review the answers together with the group. This would also be an excellent opportunity to facilitate class discussion. Included within the resource pack: • Comprehension questions differentiated to three levels. • Teacher guidance sheet with answers. • PowerPoint presentation to review answers. At the time of publishing, the documentary was available on the BBC iPlayer. It was also available from the Newsround page here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/46932823 Newsround also have a website with links to their other Newsround Special Films: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/44074702 This resource was developed for KS3 and KS4 students at an SEMH school with a wide range of abilities, and was designed to be suitable for those working at age appropriate levels, down to those working at KS1 levels. It would also be suitable for older KS2 students. The only limitation here is the potentially upsetting nature of the content. I would recommend viewing the documentary first, to see if you feel it is appropriate for your students. The documentary was made for CBBC, so it has been made with younger viewers in mind.

I had a yearlong salaried placement in Secondary English at my home school, including a half term placement at a different secondary school within my federation. I was graded Outstanding for my teacher training year. I was offered a permanent role at my home school for my NQT year before the end of my first term of training. My placement school also offered to create a permanent role for me, but I chose to continue my employment at my home school. These are the standards summaries and appendices lists for each Teaching Standard that I created for my standards/evidence folder during my training which you may find useful for reference purposes, or to give you an idea on how you might assemble your own folder. I have also included some guidance on how I went about putting my folder together, and how I organised it. Additionally, I have included an acronyms/abbreviation list. I use these throughout my summaries and appendices, and whilst some are very obvious, some may not be. There are eight summaries, eight appendices lists, one guidance sheet and one acronyms sheet.

Halloween Internet Treasure Hunt Differentiated End of Term Cover Lesson suitable SEN Special Needs

(0)
I created this resource for students at my SEMH secondary school who have a varying range of abilities. This is a perfect resource for an end of half term, or a cover lesson. It is highly engaging and my students always enjoy these tasks. Whilst made with SEN students in mind, it would be suitable for mainstream primary and secondary age students. I have made three levels of challenge from low primary school levels with cloze passages, and sentence starters, up to a more challenging “treasure hunt” aimed at KS3 students working at age appropriate levels. There should be something there for everyone! I have also included teacher answer sheets for easy marking. I hope your students enjoy this as much as my students do.
