Free Sample *** 'Heron at Port Talbot' - Gillian Clarke - Line by Line analysis ***

This free sample presentation will take you through, line by line, some of the key features that may be worth discussing in class about Gillian Clarke's 'Heron at Port Talbot'. The analysis here is, largely, aimed at the CIE IGCSE English Literature Poetry examination - nevertheless, I hope it would be useful for anyone studying this poem. The other fourteen poems in the anthology are analysed in the same way - along with revision prompts if I have finished making them! - and are included, with a series of Mock Exam papers that you may find useful to use for revision with your class, in my various Gillian Clarke bundles. I think it is more cost effective to pickup the bundles, but I know some people prefer to consider individual resources: hence listing them separately. You will see I have also included, in each individual analysis, a series of seven 'revision prompts' that can be used at the start of lessons in order to generate some writing. You can get these separately in my shop - there are free samples of my 'Journey' prompts elsewhere in my shop - but I thought they'd be a nice bonus for the Line by Line analyses.

Michael Frayn's 'Spies' - Bundle #1 (Chapters 1-4)

***Work in progress *** This will, by end of November, contain all my material for Chapters 1-4 of Michael Frayn's 'Spies. I will keep adding things in until it is all there (at which stage this message will vanish!) I have bundled what I have together at the moment as people are buying the individual bits for £2 each and I'd like things to be a little more cost effective. At present: * Teaching ideas for Chapters 1-3. * Revision Maps for Chapters 1 & 2 * Quotation Jigsaws for Chapters 1-4 * Crossword Starter for Chapter 1 & 2 * Lesson Activities for Chapter 1 &2 I will add similar bundles for the rest of the novel, if people think they will be useful, as we move along.

End of Term Quiz  #1

End of Term Quiz #1

An interactive, End of Term Quiz This has a variety of rounds - Music, Literature, Film, Science, Logos etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive in the questions - you could easily reuse it year on year. It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.

End of Term Quiz #2

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest one An interactive, End of Term Quiz.

It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.

World Book Day Quiz

World Book Day Quiz

Another one of my 'interactive' Quizzes - this is #3! The pattern is the same as my other ones - so TV Intros, Who Am I?, Films, Dingbats etc. However, all of these have a focus on World Book Day - so all the questions are linked to books. You could, obviously, do this at other times though! It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a number of clues!) right up to my Upper 6th English. There are rounds my younger class did much better at!!! It should happily take up a lesson or a tutor period - the answers are included at the back. You can pick up my other two quizzes - in the same format - here: End of Term Quiz #1 End of Term Quiz #2

Spies - Revision Prompts - Chapter 2

Spies - Revision Prompts - Chapter 2

One of the ways in which I try to get my classes to focus on developing the quality of their analyses is to make them zoom in on key quotations and explain their importance. These Revision Prompts, therefore, are a series of key quotations from each Chapter that can be used to encourage pupils to explain the authorial method. They can either be projected on the Whiteboard, given as handouts to groups or, perhaps, emailed to students for independent revision. The way I use these is to ask students to explain the context of the quotation and then develop a paragraph which explains what Frayn is trying to achieve with these words. I have uploaded each of the chapters individually - but you can also grab them as part of my Spies Revision Prompts bundle.
