I love my job, and I love making interactive, bright and fun resources. I try to have interesting PowerPoints for every lesson, so the pupils like to pay attention. Mostly Secondary English - but I sometimes create resources for other subjects too!

Please see picture of my display! Includes everything you need. Download and you can just print as everything was correctly sized for the display I created. All pictures of covers are simply off of google and some of the summaries are blurbs (depending on which book)

Oracy unit - 'Why my hero should win the Pride of Britain Award' Lesson one: Pupils should complete the 'My Hero' worksheet. They have to pick a famous person who they think is a hero. They have to complete this research sheet. PowerPoint includes Lesson two: Pupils will be learning how to use DAFOREST to write their speech. Includes a youtube video of a persuasive speech (which I do not own any rights to) A sample speech has been written. Pupils will have to find the techniques in the speech, and then write their own. A support sheet with MAT extensions and low-level sentence starters has also been attached. Please note, I do not own the emoji exit ticket as I found it on pinterest - cannot recommend it highly enough though! Lesson three is not included - but it would be the pupils giving their presentations on why their heroes should win the class award. I would recommend then holding a vote on which speech was the most persuasive and that pupil should win a reward :)
GCSE - WRITING TO ARGUE- CLASS DEBATE POWERPOINT, including plans, judge rules and debate questions.

GCSE - WRITING TO ARGUE- CLASS DEBATE POWERPOINT, including plans, judge rules and debate questions.

(0)
Tried and tested! Here's how it works: The animated PowerPoint has a slide for each step of this WHOLE LESSON plan! The class decide between two debate questions (on the powerpoint slide). The class are split into two groups (for and against) and have to complete the 'debate plan sheet' in their groups. One person is picked to be judge. I picked the person who normally causes disruptions and found giving this pupil a role helped to include them/control behaviour issues. The judge has the 'you have been chosen to be the judge' sheet which explains their rules. The judge also fills out the 'Judge Plan' sheet (so they are working whilst the rest of the class is too). A truly lovely lesson - the class enjoyed it and so did I. Great to hear opinions being shared by all pupils. Great practice for GCSE writing to argue questions.

KS3, KS4. A step by step guide of how to run blind date with a book! Pupils are given 'surprise' short stories, and have to read and review them! Includes a colourful and detailed 'story map' where pupils can review their short story. Pupils then can compare their short stories with other classmate's and this helps them to compare literature, whilst also getting them to think about what makes stories successful - great for creative writing! The short stories are super easy to find online, so this exercise can be tailored to many themes/genres!
