Animals in Literature: Class 8

This is a collection of extracts and poems about animals. I did this for a small class of Waldorf students who were really into animals and really nervous about starting new English lessons. I found it time consuming to find good extracts so hope this might help someone- the extracts could be used in many different ways/ ages/ classes.Extract from White Fang, Hawk Roosting by Hughes, the Swan by Oliver, Chris Packe article on Insects, Ugly Duckling, Wolf and the Dog Fable, and some other ideas of writers I looked at but didn't have time to use.Also didn't get to Magical Animals (Rowling/ Tolkien etc?)...

Reading for pleasure at KS3: an alternative to buying in reading programmes

A reading programme based on free-reading at KS3. Rather than online testing or comprehension questions, the programme relies on a range of writing activities linked to reading, along with the minimum expectation of 20/30 minutes reading per night.It uses the Rosenshine principles of retrieval practice, alongside promoting tier 2 vocabulary and inference skills. This is based on students having a bi-weekly lesson; this SOW has sessions planned for our Autumn term, but also has a template for lesson prompts and writing tasks.I have printed and laminated these, to make packs for use by students whilst teachers monitor engagement with reading through their writing tasks....
