New resource - AQA Religon and Life - Themes - Religion and Life. Pick up and teach. Will be part of a bundle later. Will also be uploading a homework booklet too. Check out my other AQA stuff. Thanks.
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. :)
For last minute revision for Theme B. This is a good basic revision resource that GIVES information - it has no questions or exam technique BUT it is one A3 sheet with a good amount of information from every area of the unit. Focuses on Christianity and Islam.
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.
This is a Year 7 unit that I designed for two purposes - the first was to engage boys/pp learners and the second was to promote literacy and extended writing.
It basically is designed to look like “Horrible Histories” as a way of engaging - it focuses on seemingly “gory” stories from world religion -focusing on the origin of Ganesh and Kali as well as the Ten Plagues of Egypt and some New Testament stories.
However, underpinning this is the idea of writing to inform, writing to entertain, speaking and listening group work and also extended writing. My classes really enjoyed it and it contributed to an overall improvement in our evidence of extended writing.
It was approved by my school’s Head of English as a piece of exemplary practice. Overall, there are 5 lessons so it is fairly short unit but because the children were enjoying some tasks so much, I extended the time they were given and they had longer - more like 7 lessons.
It includes a differentiated booklet to accompany the lessons for weaker ability and also some extension tasks for the more able. There is also homework which is also differentiated. This would work well with Year 7 but also a nurture group (because of all the differentiation) or even for students educated at home.
This entire 11 lesson unit would work well on its own, or as a supplementary lessons to an existing unit. I've used it with Year 7 and Year 8. The feedback from them was that they really enjoyed it and it also contains a lesson which I received an "Outstanding" observation for.
The PowerPoint contains 59 slides. This is every lesson condensed and split lesson by lesson. This also includes speaking and listening tasks, a large written task, learning objectives, peer and self assessment opportunities, resources, group work, homework tasks and a final structured assessment based around the concept of Room 101.
Topics include: persuasive devices, analysing speeches of famous people, persuasive advertising and introductory lessons which would be a great way to get to know a class. The famous people I focus on are Emma Watson, Charlie Chaplin, Winston Churchill and Mel Gibson's speech from "Braveheart" (amongst othetrs). The advertising campaign features an Apprentice style lesson where groups have to put together a pitch on a product, including persuasive devices.
I have also attached some resources which are seperate to the PowerPoint to make life easier.
12 complete lessons focusing on Brazil. Suitable for Year 7 or Year 8. Homework, PowerPoints, assessment and resources provided. Internet links to articles also provided.
Includes climate and intro to Brazilian weather, human geography (in population), physical geography, the problems and the management of favelas, some mapping and sketch work, natural resources, inequality and development. Assessment focuses on the eco system of Brazil and also has resources to help pupils plan and possibly peer mark if you wanted to slightly adapt it.
This is a sample complete lesson suitable for Year 7 - the whole scheme of work is also for sale but this was to give you an idea of the quality and the type of work I produce.
Pilgrimage introduction, including research task.
Introductory unit to "Of Mice and Men". I used this with KS3, Year 8. I have attached a 44 slide PowerPoint comprised of 12 lessons.
This includes some background and historical context to the book, a focus on the descriptions of George and Lennie, a study of Curley's wife, set design of the Bunk House and analysis of the "Dream Farm".
It also includes self assessment, peer assessment, an assessment on Curley's wife, scaffolding, detailed homework projects, group work and ICT research opportunities.
I removed a lot of my learning objectives as they were very specific and for that reason, I have slashed the price to £7.99.

Join Brazilian President Michel Temar on an exciting project to locate a hotel in the Amazon! Your students must take into account where to place their hotel, what type of hotel to build, how to protect it from flooding and also what months the climate would be the best for tourists to visit.
Will you listen to the different government advisers to create a harmonious hotel OR aim to make cash quick without considering the consequences?
My year 7 LOVED it.
Includes a beautiful worksheet with everything they will need to complete this lesson.
Could be done in groups, or alone! :)
I used it as revision SO - my students already had knowledge of eco tourism, the climate of Brazil AND flood management strategies.
