A couple of lessons I made linked to the picture book Journey. Pupils really enjoyed this and I also linked it to the trailer on YouTube.
A lesson on the Listeners poem. The instructions for the activities I used and the worksheets are all on the PowerPoint slides, with the same PowerPoint to accompany the lesson.
Use to break down tasks and instructions. Can be used by a teaching assistant and laminated for easy use.
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.
A lesson to match old Olympic mascots to descriptions, to follow information about the Rio mascots on https://www.rio2016.com/mascots/#!home and to design their own Olympic and Paralympic mascot. Additional work on fact files for their creations.
I used this for Functional Skills level 2 but it can be used for developing knowledge of the trickier vocabulary, from KS3 onwards.
A revision tool for studying the poems Cousin Kate and Valentine. Useful to stick in pupil books, display on the wall and to use as a lesson resource. My pupils have found this very useful.
