Hi! I'm the Deputy Head at a SEN school in Central London. I teach English and PSHE as well as leading on cyber safety as a CEOP ambassador. A number of these resources may seem a little off the wall but I try to make resources as unique and entertaining as possible. Enjoy (in moderation)

An Inspector Calls - Dyslexia friendly modified text

(1)
This version of the play is perfect for dyslexic students! No more difficulty reading, retrieving key quotes or struggling to link the words of the play to visual cues. I have created this for my dyslexic students but any students with processing difficulties or ADD would also find this layout useful. The entire text is doubled spaced and laid out in a dyslexia friendly structure. All character names are in bold making it easy to identify a change in speaker. There are visual cues throughout the text to help students make links between the words on the page and what is happening in the play. I have also highlighted key quotes and moments throughout the play which are linked to the separate question booklet that comes with the download. All quotes are highlighted in red with page number prompts. I have already used this with my students and it has increased their confidence in reading aloud and engaging with the complexities of the play. Anyone with access to IPads can open this on the devices to save printing costs!

Angry Words! A brand new interactive game that teaches students about word classes.

(0)
This exciting game is a whodunnit utilising the popular characters from the Angry Birds games. The 'Angry Words!' are all different word classes. Each of the 8 puzzles will help students to learn how to spot and differentiate between the different word classes. Students begin by matching the Angry Words character to their 'character description' which is really a definition for their word class. For example, Colonel Ective is 'Connective'. The 8 puzzles must be solved to crack the case of the missing egg and will test pupils' ability to recognise 8 different word classes. By completing the puzzles, students will be able to whittle down the potential criminals using the suspect grid. The powerpoint can be differentiated up or down and features the answers. Depending on your students abilities, the game could last one to three lessons. It could also be repeated over time to consolidate learning!

This is a presentation I deliver as a trained CEOP/Thinkuknow ambassador. This presentation is aimed at training staff but can easily be adapted to be delivered to students and/or parents. The presentation is broken in to 5 sections: Section 1: Introduction to online grooming. There is a pre-session knowledge test of key vocabulary which can be added to during the session, or alternatively turned into flash cards. Section 2: The first of 3 True or False questions. The first section focuses on how avatars and online role player games can be abused by online groomers. There are examples of concerning sites and information on the Proteus Effect. Section 3: This focuses on the acronyms and emojis that young people use to communicate about sexual behaviour. There is a easy to follow explanation of how groomers operate. Then, there is a grid with the acronyms allowing the participants to guess before giving the answers. Section 4: This focuses on bringing the learning together and looking at transcripts of chats to analyse the warning signs. There are 3 different chats, 2 with translation in cases of difficulty understanding, all of which model how online grooming can take place. Section 5: Summarises the issues and offers advice for professionals and parents on how to educate young people on the dangers online.
