Kelly Daniel

English teacher of KS3, GCSE, A Level English Literature, A Level English Language and Film AS. I also teach a bit of drama. I have been teaching for 16 years. I love creating resources which work and sharing them with colleagues so we can all spend more time with our families and less time in front of a screen. I like constructive criticism and feedback to improve.

Of Mice and Men Exam Preparation

(0)
Designed to get students revising aspect of the novella ‘Of Mice and Men’ in timed conditions, this PowerPoint resource contains 26 slides to keep students motivated. Students do need a whole view of the novella to complete these tasks and this would work best as exam or assessment preparation/revision. There are enough tasks included on the slides to cover a whole lesson at a fast pace (potentially more) and requires minimal ‘teacher talk’. This resource would also work well as a cover lesson to keep students engaged and active.
Oliver Twist Spelling and Vocabulary Challenge

Oliver Twist Spelling and Vocabulary Challenge

(0)
A series of 7 homework tasks incorporating spelling and vocabulary based on the novel Oliver Twist. These homework sheets cover the entire novel and could be used weekly or bi-weekly as homework or classwork activity. They would work well for K.S.3 or those with spelling or literacy issues at K.S.4. They include key works which are lifted or inspired by the novel and follow a roughly chronological time-line of the novel. Not only do they focus on spelling and vocabulary but each sheet includes a writing task which expands students use of vocabulary in context. How I used them: As part of high performing class of Year 7 homework during a term of study of Oliver Twist. I used them bi-weekly as a stretch and challenge task to extend basic spelling homeworks. I set the homework task, took the homework sheet in after a week and the same week traditionally tested the students retention of the spelling/vocabulary included on the sheet.

Oliver Twist Term Spelling Homework

(0)
These spelling homework lists and worksheets are based on Charles Dickens’ novel Oliver Twist. Originally created to support Year 7 Mastery lessons, they would be useful for KS3 or 4 as a weekly or, as I used them, bi-weekly homework. How I used it: The students would complete the sheet for homework, hand the completed sheet in the following week, then be tested traditionally in class time to assess whether they retained the spelling.
