Christmas GCSE Language - 2 lessons (Reading Fiction and Creative Writing)

(0)
2 festive lessons that would be great for any KS4 group (or higher ability KS3 group!). The first is a reading lesson based on a Christmas extract from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; this is followed by a series of reading questions in the style of the new Edexcel Language paper 1 questions. The second is a creative writing lesson based on a clip from Home Alone, which encourages students to write in the third person using a range of sentence structures. These festive lessons can be enjoyed by all ages and require no extra planning.

Speech Writing - for Edexcel 9-1 Spoken Language Endorsement/Language P1 & P2 GCSEExamPractice

(2)
This 4 week fully-resourced scheme of work gives your students the opportunity to analyse, evaluate and compare famous speeches in preparation for writing and delivering their own (the spoken language endorsement). Through this scheme of work, students learn the terminology associated with the techniques they can use to make their writing more engaging (also excellent for the imaginative/transactional writing task) before analysing, evaluating and recreating them. This scheme of work serves as excellent practice for both Edexcel language papers, building in the spoken language endorsement in a useful way.

This 40/40 piece of imaginative writing demonstrates the skills and techniques that students need to be able to use in order to achieve a grade 8 or 9 in the Edexcel Language exam. This piece of writing is based on a moment from the movie John Wick - I encourage students to use poignant moments from films/shows as inspiration.

A Level Language Change - Technology

In this lesson, students explore four ways in which different technologies (including texting and Twitter) have had an impact on our language. There are references to key theories/theorists to enable students to meet AO4. Students work towards writing their own topical language piece focused on technology, using an exemplar to guide them.

SPAG and writing skills scheme of work for KS3 students

(0)
This is a fully-resources scheme of work that I created for Year 7 students. After visiting a local primary school and learning more about the KS2 SATs requirements, I designed this scheme of work to ensure that our KS3 students continue to build on the skills learned in primary school. Every lesson has a powerpoint, worksheets, homework activities, differentiation (including differentiated learning objectives) and there are assessment opportunities built into the scheme of work.
