With the new G.C.S.E.’s being closed book, our students need to get to know the anthology well as they will not have reference to them in the exam.
To this end, I wanted to have some varied works-sheets that I could use for home works, independent study or starters in lessons. I also thought I could use them to give out every so often during the year to keep the poems fresh in students’ memory. You could, of course, use them, to supplement the initial teaching of the poems.
Ideas / suggestions / points:
Consider printing some pages on A3 to maximise writing area
Each sheet has a place for students name to be written
There is a blank biography sheet for you to add your own knowledge or direct students to research and fill in
Creative Writing pages cross over to the Language paper offering a ‘two birds with one stone’ approach for practice!
Some sheets include ‘Extension Tasks’ – these could be given as extras or to push on higher ability
