I am a graded 'Outstanding' English and Media teacher for students 11-18 . I often use Philosophy for Children to engage the students and bring learning from the classroom into the world they live in. I thoroughly enjoy creating innovative and exciting schemes and resources that bring learning to life. I have an Instagram account of the same name so you can see the resources and how my classroom looks, with different ideas of how to make a safe and stimulating environment.

A fun and engaging revision game based on the game show Pointless. A fun PowerPoint with music, timer video clip, a range of revision rounds such as 'contextual Information' , 'anagrams', 'name the character' and 'who said it?', this game will help your students look for answers they may not usually consider. A great way to recap knowledge in an exciting way.

To tackle the lack of enthusiasm about homework in my school I created a Nando's menu of homework tasks. This one targets key stage 4 and above and assists teaching of Lord of the Flies by William Golding. There are 25 homeworks already planned, differentiated by 'spice'. Since using these menus, where the students pick for themselves, the amount and quality of homework has improved

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens analysing the cratchits full lesson

(1)
A full lesson including powerpoint, learning objectives, success criteria and resources. A fun and engaging way of exploring the cratchits in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. The lesson starts with a 'Christmas Carol Crossword' where they need to identify and recall the family members' names, before moving on to extract analysis. The first extract is modelled already on the powerpoint, but this can easily be removed and embedded timers are on the slides already. Think, Pair, Share opportunities are in the lesson too, with students needing to match up the quote to the description of how Bob Cratchit feels (slide 6 and 7-this will need printing). I have taught this lesson to three different classes and all classes have showed rapid progress and a real engagement in the lesson.
