OCR Latin GCSE Verse Literature B Aeneid Booklet (2023 and 2024 Exams)
katestutorroomkatestutorroom

OCR Latin GCSE Verse Literature B Aeneid Booklet (2023 and 2024 Exams)

(0)
This booklet was made for my students who are sitting the Latin GCSE in Summer 2023 and 2024, covering excerpt from Aeneid Book 6. The student booklet gives background information and context on Virgil’s life, an Aeneid plot overview and information about the Sibyl and Underworld. It then features the lines of Latin text spaced widely apart for students to add their own notes and separated into manageable chunks for memorisation. Each set of lines is also accompanied by a vocabulary table for words which students do not already know from their GCSE vocabulary list, or which they cannot be expected to guess. I have also included a translation of the lines from Book 6 which are not included in the examined text, so that students do not miss out on the full storyline. The second document is a teacher translation, which gives a more literal translation of the lines than offered by most texts. This can be used either independently by the teacher to prep for the lessons, or to guide students through their own translations. I always use booklets like this to teach the Literature aspect of the GCSE course, as it allows the students to engage with the text more directly by writing their own vocabulary and notes directly onto the lines.

The pictures covered in the booklet will be shown and asked about in the examinations for the next two years.

I have also given it to students for independent study/homework tasks. Included: Information on Roman burials, superstition surrounding death and research questions on the Amiternum Tomb and the Tomb of the Haterii.

This set of six lessons (Powerpoints and worksheets) are great for teaching students more about the Great Fire of London. I used it for KS2&3 students, but they could definitely be adapted for KS1.

Six lessons (each includes Powerpoint to be used in class and a worksheet) 1.) Introduction to 1666 including an interactive higher/lower game which can be played with the whole class, fun facts and a historian’s logbook worksheet. 2.) Information on houses during the Great Fire and a cut-out sheet to make a small paper model of a Tudor house. 3.) Information on sources, Samuel Pepys’ diary and Shelton’s Shorthand System, plus a coding sheet to write their own sentences using shorthand. 4.) Methods of putting out fires in London in 1666, including lots of picture sources and a guessing game. 5.) Fun facts about Great Fire conspiracy theories, including a storyboarding activity. 6.)
