A two week (8 lesson) scheme of work introducing students to Paper 1, Section A (Explorations in Creative Reading) of the new AQA English Language GCSE. The aim is to introduce students to the format of the exam and teach them the skills needed to analyse unseen prose extracts to be able to answer questions 1-3.
The scheme of work focuses on extracts from the opening of 'Fahrenheit 451', 'From Russia With Love' and 'The Night Circus' - I have not been able to upload these due to copyright restrictions but they are available online. The James Bond extract can be found here: http://thrillers4u.com/20_ian-fleming-from-russia-with-love-dr-no-and-goldfinger_extract.html and the 'The Night Circus' extract is from the opening page of the novel.
A full scheme of work is included with detailed guidance and notes to outline the structure of each lesson.
In addition to this, each lesson is fully planned and resourced as a PowerPoint presentation - over 100 slides for the two week unit.

Some simple booklets I put together for a mixed KS3/4 class of SLD/MLD/ASD students to practice cursive writing and printing.
There are 4 similar booklets, two cursive with guide lines, (one has a larger font) ,one non cursive with an underline and one non cursive with guidelines.
The booklets are symbol/ picture supported and linked to phase 2/3 of letters and sounds. I hope these are of use to someone :)
The contents are:
• Small letters
• Tall and dangly letters
• Capital letters
• CVC words
• CCVC words
• sh words
See my other booklets which follow on from this one
Edit: due to popular demand I have uploaded editable versions.
For the word documents to display properly you will need to ask your search engine for the following fonts:
Non-cursive: Dnealian manuscript, Dnealian manuscript lined, the dotty non-cursive was primer apples.
For the cursive fonts, I used this handy Microsoft word 'add on' from here. http://www.cursivewriting.org/joined-up-handwriting.html
This installs its own fonts called Xccw lined, joined, dotty etc with options for where the letters join such as top or bottom. It's not free though.
