WJEC GCSE FILM STUDIES – THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS: STUDY PACK WITH WORKBOOK AND PPT

This Study Pack supports students in their preparation for Paper 2 of the WJEC GCSE Film Studies: Exploring Film Outside Hollywood. The Workbook and Revision Guide promotes independent research into the historical context of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas as well as an exploration of the non-Hollywood film industry. There are also grids to complete relating to character, themes and settings as well as close studies of two key scenes. The accompanying PowerPoint augments the workbook and includes questions and prompts. I have found this resource to be invaluable and is especially helpful in guiding less able students in effective and relevant research as well as giving the more able an opportunity to work independently.

SUPERHERO SPELLING MASTERY PROGRAMME

SUPERHERO SPELLING MASTERY PROGRAMME

This is a comprehensive, effective and fun spelling programme, which covers a wide variety of spelling rules. The programme complements English Mastery as, rather than prompting the student to memorise words, each set of exercises promotes understanding of a spelling rule and gives many opportunities to put it into practice. The pdf prints out as 9 individual booklets, with the first 8 each having 3 sections (covering spelling conventions including soft ‘c’ and soft ‘g’, short vowel doubling, prefixes, suffixes etc) and the final booklet is for revision/testing. Each section takes about 15-20 minutes to complete making it ideal for a lesson starter or intervention during tutor time.

WJEC GCSE FILM STUDIES: A REVISION QUIZ ON FILM LANGUAGE

WJEC GCSE FILM STUDIES: A REVISION QUIZ ON FILM LANGUAGE

A revision quiz for WJEC GCSE FILM STUDIES: It has an emphasis on Paper 1 but the film language choices are also applicable to Paper 2. I have been using this quiz for a number of years but have regularly updated and improved it. It has a series of questions that encourage students to use film language, which is a key factor in scoring higher marks. There are slides testing on genre, conventions, colour connotation, cinematography, sound, mise-en-scene and marketing. The question slides are first in the power point followed by the answers. I find that having the answers at the end gives an opportunity for discussion and further questioning. I hope you and your students find it helpful.
