I'm currently working as an HLTA for Secondary. These are mainly resources that I knocked up quickly to suit my needs when I couldn't find what I was looking for, so I hope that they may be of use to you as well. Subjects I tend to cover are Literacy/English and Modern Languages but the resources are varied. A lot of the resources are differentiated and suitable for students with EAL or SEN, particularly in Key Stage 3.

Facts and Opinions Lesson

Facts and Opinions Lesson

Literacy This lesson had the objective of recognising the difference between facts and opinion. It should be quite self-explanatory on the powerpoint itself. In one lesson I used stand up/sit down for a fact/opinion. In another lesson where this would have been too disruptive, I handed out two different coloured cards and they held up the appropriate one. This would also be appropriate for Entry Level/Step Up to English. Feel free to jazz it up!

Getting to Know You Introduction Games

Getting to Know You Introduction Games

A list of different games and activities to use with a new class or at summer school etc. Or just if you want to get to know your own class a bit better. Some would need a bigger space such as a Drama studio but others can be done in the class room. You could also adapt this for MFL and just change the games to be in the Target Language.

German Battleships Game - Pets

German Battleships Game - Pets

MFL - German Schiffe versenken Spiel - Haustiere Instructions are included on the worksheet (print double sided). Example sentences are also included. Good for building up confidence with speaking and constructing sentence. Can also be used to teach question and answer skills. You may wish to laminate the sheets and hand out board pens. I like this game because you don't need to be the best at German in the class to win! Set a time-limit and then see who managed to sink the most battleships! If you use this resource, please think about leaving a rating or review - Danke!

Homophones Picture Worksheet

Homophones Picture Worksheet

Literacy An A5 worksheet (cut in half) for students to create a visual to remember homophones. I gave each student in the class a different pair of homophones and they had to draw each one and also write a sentence for each one. If you wanted each student to have a complete set you could then photocopy them. This was successful because it allowed my weak writers to understand the concept without having to do lots of writing. A5 is also easier/neater for their books!

Holiday Research

Holiday Research

Literacy A guideline for students to follow while doing a research task. This can then act as a basis for a further lesson on advertising holidays, or as a speaking and listening task - for example, for Entry Level or Step Up to English. It gives them some structure for learning computer room research skills.

German Pyramid - Opinions, Time Phrases, Higher Order Phrases and Connectives.

German Pyramid - Opinions, Time Phrases, Higher Order Phrases and Connectives.

*If you're here from twitter, I would really appreciate it if you could write a quick review or send me a tweet if you like the resource, thanks.* MFL - Not my original idea but adapted from a literacy resource, this pyramid aims to help students with their independent learning, specifically when writing. Most useful for GCSE or A-Level, however it can be used across all age groups and abilities due to the built in differentiation - the easier phrases are at the top of the pyramid and they get more complex as you go down. I have included a colour key on some phrases to also help with word order. If you have the time and money, the idea is to laminate each side and to fix them together to make the pyramid as shown in the pictures. The different sections are: Opinions Time Phrases and Sequencers Higher Order Phrases Connectives I have uploaded the document and pics of how it should look once made. If you decide to use this resource, please leave a comment or share. Thanks! Danke!
