Here’s a lesson I have put together for Black History Month addressing the lack of diversity in the Oscars.
After discovering some facts/numbers and reflecting on quotations, the pupils have to write out a letter to the Academy to persuade them to be more diverse and inclusive in the next nominations.
Here’s a whole week of lessons designed to kill two birds with one stone: study Jekyll & Hyde whilst also preparing the class for a Language Paper 1 assessment.

Sharing my first resource ever! This is a lesson I have put together to analyse the language used to describe Dr Lanyon’s physical appearance in Chapter 6.
Pupils should work in teams as doctors trying to diagnose Dr Lanyon’s strange condition based on the symptoms. Then they should write a PEE paragraph revamped for the theme of the lesson.
This is a display I put together some time ago. It is mean to be concise and quite visual. A brief summary of some of the most memorable inventions through time and History.
Feedback would be very much appreciated if you’re downloading.
This is a lesson that I have used with my Year 7 to practise using the main punctuation marks and including them more systematically in their writing. The lesson includes references and names from Stevenson’s novel Kidnapped.
Feedback is always greatly appreciated.
This a holiday lesson I have put together for Y9 and Y10 bu it can be differentiated and tweaked to suit other years.
The aim of the lesson is to set up a trial simulation with each member of the team preparing a persuasive speech and argumentation to convince the jury. It’s a good practice for Language Paper 2, Section B skills.
This is a lesson that was very successful with my KS4 to set expectations for their literature exam answers.
They came out feeling more confident with the task and what to improve in their own writing to achieve a higher level.
Here is a lesson I have put together for my year 7 (although it can be used for all Key Stage 3)
It is about slowly building confidence and skills to write a compelling descriptive piece. Use the spinning wheel to write out a paragraph together as a class, then spin it again for independent writing.
