19 Slide Powerpoint Presentation that is designed to be used over 3-4 one hour lessons (depending on ability). This mini-scheme leads students on a learning journey through Ted Hughes' poem, Pike. It starts with a pre-learning activity on fishing, and goes through vocabulary, imagery, annotation and analysis, theme exploration, quote finding, writers methods (language techniques). Complete with learning objectives, starters, plenaries, pair work, links to multimedia resources, this is perfect for a stand-alone mini unit on poetry, or as part of a larger unit on poetry. I've used for top set y9 but is also suitable for mid-higher sets across all KS3.
A PowerPoint presentation designed to teach the poetic forms of Limerick and Haiku to older KS2 or younger KS3 Students.

Keywords, starter activities, learning objectives and activities included, along with opportunities to create own poetry. Can be adapted up or down. Can be used as a standalone project or within a poetry unit.

Peer assessment and success criteria included. Useful across ks3 and 4, but explicit links made to mark scheme for AQA GCSE
An 18 slide powerpoint presentation designed to support the teaching and learning of writing in the form of autobiography. Fun activities throughout, pair work, film clips, opportunities to write extended pieces. Can be used over an extended lesson or as a writing project (2-3 hours) or over the course of 2-4 lessons, as a mini scheme of work. I used as a writing project for KS3, High ability year 9 but can easily be adapted to suit a variety of ages and ability.
