I based this on a year 7 other worlds topic. Resources include Virgin Galactic adverts with s&l exercise, a writing frame for an advert, success criteria for designing an advert and a linked peer assessment sheet.
Used for an English module on Criminal Minds. Pupils use their imagination to pretend they are a prisoner in Alcatraz at night. They then write a poem based on senses and other feelings. Differentiation is included with sentence starters and word mats for the senses, and for other feelings with pictures. Please comment.
A different way to engage pupils for work on autobiographies. Pupils can start with filling in the iPad, which can then lead to further extended writing. Pupils can then make a list with pictures in the bucket, then write about one of these adventures coming true. Then pupils can write an acrostic poem. A few lessons to get to know pupils.
