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.

GCSE WJEC/Eduqas English Literature. Poetry- The Soldier- Rupert Brooke Analysis lesson
owl_eyed_resourcesowl_eyed_resources

GCSE WJEC/Eduqas English Literature. Poetry- The Soldier- Rupert Brooke Analysis lesson

(2)
A complete lesson with all resources, learning objectives, success criteria and poem breakdown. This lesson starts with a do now activity where students explore the stereotypical image of a soldier, mind mapping ideas around an image. The PowerPoint then talks through key notes for the context, content, structure, form, language, imagery and tone of the poem. The poem has a step by step analysis, including key questions, so students can expand understanding and knowledge whilst having discussion opportunities to expand deeper meaning. This can be used as a complete lesson, but it can equally be used as a revision aide for students either in or outside of the classroom. All Eduqas questions are thematic, so the next step would be to pose the question ‘How is War presented in The Soldier’. Teachers are able to edit or add to this lesson to aide understanding - this lesson was created for lower ability sets.

Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar homework menu

(1)
To tackle the lack of enthusiasm about homework in my school I created a menu of homework. This one targets Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. 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. There is a real focus on grammar, techniques and terminology to ensure students understand the key devices used within English.

A fun, interactive P4C lesson discussing the issue of gender equality. Included in the pack is a workbooklet with a Do Now activity to encourage own opinion, two resources (including one more challenging article for top sets/stretch and challenge) and discussion points. This will help students analyse non fiction texts whilst forming their own opinion and justifying it. Great lesson to link to sexism in literature and film, as well as considering the working world and society around them.
