Reggae

Reggae

This is the first lesson in a reggae unit that I teach. The starter involves playing a selection of styles which leads into reggae. The main lesson activity involves some listening questions that pupils load up on their computers, listen with headphones and answer. Let me know if this is of any use to you - I've got loads more of these kind of PowerPoints for different units through KS3.

Lesson on Drugs

Lesson on Drugs

Pupils learn about classes of different drugs. I deliver this lesson for Year 7s. Ideally an IT room would be used for the the 2nd activity but can be done in any classroom. Comments welcome.

Pupil Music  NC Booklet

Pupil Music NC Booklet

I use this for all KS3 pupils. Every time they feel they have met a NC target they can write how they have achieved it and tick it off. It works well for setting differentiated targets and helping pupils see their level and what they need to do to improve.

A whole lesson - introduction to Disco & Club Dance. Includes starter questions, the main features and plenary questions. All audio clips are embedded in the PowerPoint so it should just play when the slide is advanced so the plenary exam question clips are at the end. I've included a second video for Club Dance as I've just discovered the video embedded has a swear word so the Kevin and Perry video is a better option. After the slide that shows all the features of the 6 club dance styles, there is an audio clip that plays all 6 in a random order. The activity is that students have to write down the order of the styles with this slide showing. Hopefully it will make sense when you play the PowerPoint. Good luck in the exam!
