End of Term Quiz #1

(13)
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.

'Family House' - Gillian Clarke - Line by Line analysis

This presentation will take you through, line by line, some of the key features that may be worth discussing in class about Gillian Clarke's 'Family House. 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. This presentation is part of my Gillian Clark Bundle #2. This bundle includes analyses on: 'Catrin'; 'Pipistrelle'; 'Friesian Bull'; 'Journey'; 'Miracle on St David's Day'; 'Heron at Port Talbot' and 'Lunchtime Lecture'. Within that bundle, I have also included a series of Mock Exam papers that you may find useful to use for revision with your class. I think it is more cost effective to pickup the whole bundle , but I know some people prefer to consider individual resources: hence listing it separately here!

'The Merchant's Tale' - Marriage in the Medieval Ages

(1)
This lesson introduces the nature of marriage in the Middle Ages. It touches on courtly love, the nature of bethrothal and divorce and also might remedy some misconceptions about the position of women at the time. It ends with a research/homework task to consider The Marriage Group in 'The Canterbury Tales'

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest one An interactive, End of Term Quiz. This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round. 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.
Christmas Puzzle Pack #1

Christmas Puzzle Pack #1

5 Resources
I've bundled together some of my popular puzzles into one Christmas bundle- there's my first interactive 'End of Term' quiz, a giant crossword, a series of Ditloids, some Dingbats and a logic gird. The quiz take about an hour to run through. I've just used the crossword as a starter activity - it is quite tricky but they seemed to enjoy it! The Ditloids might be something for an older class, to send home for Parents or even for use in the Staffroom. Likewise, the Dingbats are a bit of fun that might engage a class during Tutor Time. The logic grid is an old family favourite of mine - hopefully your students will enjoy it too! I trust these prove useful for you as we approach the end of a busy Autumn term!

In a revision lesson, my class put this together - breaking down the key themes of the play and finding critics from their notes that fit with each header. I thought someone else might find this useful - at least as a starting point for something else!

This is a set of seven 'Revision Prompts' which I have been using to generate some writing from my classes. These ones are linked to Gillian Clarke's 'Journey' and the prompt questions here are, largely, aimed at the CIE IGCSE English Literature Poetry examination - nevertheless, I hope it would be useful for anyone studying this poem. These prompts are included in my 'Line by Line analyses' of Clarke's poems where I suggest some ways of looking at the key ideas in the texts. You can purchase these analyses one-by-one or as part of wider bundles which also include some Mock Examination papers.

Marking coversheet - Pre-U Unseen

A marking sheet that we use for all Unseen essays for the Cambridge Pre-U It highlights how students are using the AOs and offers some thoughts on strengths/weaknesses. We feel this cuts down on the time it takes to mark a paper!
