SPECIAL PLACES PILGRIMAGE UNIT RELIGIOUS EDUCATION RE KS3

(0)
This is quite a large unit - each lesson lasts at least an hour - some lessons last more. There are at least 7 lessons here - but when I taught it, it stretched out longer than that. You are paying for 33 resources in total. The lessons focus on the point of pilgrimage and towards the end, there is some discussion about whether all pilgrimage is religious. It focuses on a mix of world religions deliberately because I wanted to include small parts of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism that I felt were lacking in my Year 7 curriculum. However, Christianity, Judaism and Islam also feature quite heavily. I used this with Year 7 but it could work with Year 8 as an introduction task - or even as a “nurture” class project and would also be perfect for anyone who home educates. There is a mix of tasks including group work, extended pieces of writing, research tasks, assessment questions and peer/self assessments - as well as a final assessment. My students really enjoyed it. There is also a differentiation booklet of resources for the less able which can be broken down if you would rather. There are also tasks for “fast finishers” and everything is supported with sentence starters and word frames, as well as measurable success criteria for most of the bigger tasks. The unit looks at Lourdes, Mecca, 3 sites in India, Jerusalem and a non religious pilgrimage study of the film “Africa United”. There is homework included in the form of a differentiation “takeaway” homework project. You might have to buy that DVD - it cost me less that £2 on Amazon. There is also a baseline test and hyper links to relevant clips. You could literally download this and be ready to teach in minutes. Enjoy. :)

OLIVER TWIST and DICKENSIAN LONDON KS3 Year 6 Year 7

(0)
10 hour long lessons at least- maybe more - contained in one PowerPoint. This PowerPoint is 45 slides in length. Quality homework is also included. I also used a differentiated booklet that runs alongside the unit which I printed off for weaker students. I have also put in 2 other resources I used BUT you will need copies of Oliver Twist. This unit could easily be stretched out if you added class reading of quiet reading of the text. Includes background on Dickens' life and influences, the context he was writing within, creative writing around what London was like at the time, an example of the non fiction work of Dickens with a comprehension task, a speaking and listening task built around reforming schools and focus on the portrayal of the characters of Jack Dawkins and Bill Sykes. There is also an assessment opportunity built around Dickens' portrayal of Sykes, complete with a levelled itinary. The unit finishes with a fun subject appropriate task. There are multiple opportunities for self or peer assessment. The unit also links into persuasive writing, imperatives and correct use speech marks. *I removed the learning objectives because the ones I used were really specific to a challenging group. As a result of this, I have put the price down to £7.99.

Who Are We? Introduction to Religious Education ENTIRE UNIT

**BRAND NEW FOR SEPTEMBER 2017** This is a 6 lesson unit suitable for students starting KS3 Religious Education. It includes a scheme of work, a fully differentiated task booklet for EAL/sen students which can be used as a discreet booklet or simply printed off when needed as one off differentiation, an assessment and five beautifully created "WOW" factor lessons which come completely resourced with materials - other than the differentiation booklet. There are hyperlinks to relevant video clips throughout, which are embedded into the PowerPoints making them effortless to use. I am an RE specialist with experience teaching KS3 English, Humanities and PSHE so there is a wealth of cross curricular options running throughout. There is also a "Take Away" menu piece of homework which features 3 pieces of homework for every student (inc. SEN/EAL/G&T etc). The scheme of work is extremely detailed and features a full lesson by lesson plan and links to relevant AT1 and AT2 attainment. It also links to the new AQA spec to show how I am planning ahead with my work. There is 12 mark exam practice running throughout and the assessment is a piece of creative work which is suitable for all abilities. There are also chances to peer assess and self assess as well as a teacher feedback pro-forma which makes mid way marking a breeze. There is an ICT research task and opportunities for group work, as well as detailed individual pieces for extended writing. I have chosen to feature a case study on Manchester but it would be suitable as a generic case study for the UK. All scaffolds, word frames, lesson outcomes, objectives etc are included. You could download this and be ready to teach within minutes. Please check out my other items as I am passionate about the work I do. Thanks.
World War One Conflict Poetry - Owen and Sassoon Mini Unit KS3 KS4 English

World War One Conflict Poetry - Owen and Sassoon Mini Unit KS3 KS4 English

(0)
A small unit of 6 lessons explaining two poems: "Duche et Decorum Est" by Owen and "Suicide in the Trenches" by Sassoon. It includes links to a brilliant documentary. It also contains an assessment, an ICT task based around the context and background of the two poems, an assessment writing frame, analysis and discussion of the poems, homeworks and a creative writing task. I have removed some learning objectives as they were very specific to the pupil I was working with. I used it in KS3 English. It could be useful at KS4. The feedback from the boys in the class was particularly interesting and they liked it a lot.
