I am an English teacher in London, and want to share my resources because I know how it can be a life saver in the best and the worst of times. Without a shred of a doubt, I put in 110% into my teaching profession; I look to improve my resources, and challenge the students in various ways year on year. My school is mixed ability, so lessons will often use either a 'traffic light' method or 'stretch's for differentiated learning. Thank you for visiting my page, and ANY feedback is welcome!

KS3 Spelling Test

KS3 Spelling Test

(0)
This KS3 spelling test is all you need. A student will have 15 spellings to learn per fortnight, with a specific focus attached to it. For example, some of the weeks cover: Homophones Silent ‘u’ sounds Confused words Unstressed vowels Music (and other subjects) In a digital age, students typically have more desire to pick up a phone than a book or pen. It is therefore crucial for teachers to promote the literacy of students so that they can communicate effectively in the wider world.

The Hunger Games Scheme of Work

(0)
A complete differentiated scheme of work for the modern novel ‘Hunger Games’, by Suzanne Collins. Aimed at year 8s, though can be easily adapted to teach other years. This scheme of work will help improve analytical writing, whilst challenging students to discuss broader topics that are linked to the novel. This scheme of work covers: Dystopia and Characters The Protagonist Dictatorship Thoughts and Feelings Show Don’t Tell How is Katniss presented Effect of Language Barbarism Conflict Symbolism War Moral Dilemmas Romance Reality TV Purposeful Devices Creative Writing Reflection As there is a lot to get through, I suggest using the audiobook on YouTube to assist the reading.
Conflict Poetry Scheme of Work

Conflict Poetry Scheme of Work

(0)
An entire SOW on ‘Conflict Poetry’ that is aimed at year 9, with differentiated activities and sentence prompts where needed. The scheme of work has a primary focus on war poetry in the early 1900s (inc. the works of Thomas Hardy, Jessie Pope and Wilfred Owen), where the lessons encourage students to consider how conflict goes beyond physical struggles. Furthermore, this unit trains essential poetry and language skills for the GCSE AQA exam board. My aims to engage boys in English means that the lessons often encourage the class to consider the harmful consequences of gender stereotypes. The lessons smoothly lead them to their final lesson where they have to compare Owen and Pope’s poem together. These lessons include: Devices Conflict WWI Propaganda Tone Purpose of Devices Approaching Poetry Poetic Structure Poet’s Intentions Shift of Focus Imagery Exploring Quotes Letter Writing Comparing Poetry Assessment Any feedback is welcome!
