The Official John Kimble Resource Store

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!

Bullying - 3 lesson pack + Role plays

(0)
Here are three tried and trusted lessons to help challenge bullying behaviour. These lessons have been used with small groups and whole classes, both in a mainstream and specialist setting. Lesson 1: What is Bullying? The lesson focuses on defining bullying and recognising how the behaviour becomes cyclical rather than linear. There is a comic strip and video links to help bring it to life for the students. There are some role plays attached too, to help model potential bullying scenarios. Lesson 2: Instigator or innovator? The lesson focuses on teaching students how they can diffuse bullying situations rather than inflame them. There are plenty of realistic scenarios to role play out and practical advice for the students on how to deal with them if they arise. Lesson 3: Respect. The lesson focuses on how to treat others with respect. It encourages the students to share their own experiences of being disrespected before looking at the heartbreaking real life example of Felix Alexander. All lessons are easy to customise and differentiate.

Once downloaded, the games can be differentiated up or down to meet the needs of your students. Would particularly recommend for SEN pupils or disengaged pupils.
