This is EVERYTHING I have put together for my top set Year 11 to revise for both of their English Language GCSEs. Fifty page booklet includes:
Examples of what the questions look like and frameworks for how to answer
Sample extracts with questions (3 Fiction extracts and 4 Non- Fiction)
Model Answers with marker commentary
Planning sheets for comprehensive responses using tried and tested approaches
Language and structural analysis frameworks focus on integrated language and structural analysis and using multiple perceptions.
Evaluative frameworks focus on where an ‘attempt’ has been made, how and what works well.
Please give me feedback!
Perfect for preparing your pupils to take part in MUN or an end of HT Mini SOW to develop high tier oracy and debate skills. A mini SOW I created on holding a Model United Nations competition within class. This can last 1-2 weeks. The unit begins with an understanding of Human Rights and why they are important. The unit goes on to teach pupils vocabulary involved in MUN and how to write resolutions as well as how to research your delegation’s country and stance on particular issues.
Scheme comes with overview of journey of HR
How to use preamabulatory clauses
Handbook of order of events and specific terminology used at delegations
How to write a resolution
Researching your country

A 12 page reading booklet with challenges to engage students with reading for over the Summer Holidays, I am currently using this with year 7 and incoming Year so so as to set the expectation of a reading culture before our new pupils arrive.
Ideal for sending out to incoming Year 7 to welcome them to the school too!
Edexcel Revision flashcards for Conflict Cluster. There is a card per poem with 4 important language quotations, the technique and an inference as well as structural features and inferences. The other side has a summary of the poem’s ideas and context. Also comes with tips for answering the question and planning guidance.
I made these for my department and I have been flooded with requests to print more for Year 11 for the last two years so hopefully they will be valuable on a wider level!
The cards are ordered on PowerPoint so that when they are printed they will be back to back. The ycan be laminated or printed on card.
This is a tried and tested scaffold for answering Edexcel GCSE English Literature for the evaluative question on ideas, themes and characters.
The resource is a scaffold for extended writing with a model answer and prompt questions down the side.
The resource aims to make responses more critical through addressing Where a theme is indicative, How it is presented and Why the author chooses to include this detail, ie how does it develop characterisation, change or drive the plot and link to other themes within the text. This can be used for Shakespeare play, 20th Century play and 19th century novella (just without the context bit)
This SOW will save you a WORLD of time- READY TO USE- it has taken forever to organise and correlate and is highly scaffolded and explicit.
