Literature through the Ages SOW

This SOW is meant to increase pupils' cultural capital. It starts with the general information about literature, introduces literary timeline, explains how literary canon is created. It then moves to Ancient Greece the development of writing, Homer, the philosophers, Aesop's fables - oral tradition. Next there is the study of the Greek theatre - Antigone by Sophocles. Then, we move on to study the Bible and link it to the story of creation in the GreekMythology. After that there is the closer look at the Medieval Period -Chaucer, The Renaissance and Paradise Lost, and finally the Romantics and poetry. This SOW included the baseline assessment (lesson to introduce as well) and the end of unit assessment (the Romanticism). There are 6 core lessons and some of the suggested lessons - it is a work in progress and I will upload all lessons at the end of this half term.... MORE

Everybody Writes Day planning

This is a list of events that I organised for a whole school literacy day called 'Everybody Writes'. As we were a small school, I was able to create three separate workshops across the day for each pupil in the school. I wanted to make the point that 'writing' isn't just something you have to do at school, but a skill that stays with you for life. I also wanted to include the local business community, so contacted various companies to see what they could offer. I hope this list of ideas might be useful to anyone who is considering planning something similar. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to know any more.... MORE

Crafting Creative Writing

A sequence of creative writing lessons using cut up sentences from a story.Can be used with KS3and KS4 as it'suseful for teaching structure and crafting.You can play around with the ideas on the ppt., for example, I asked my studentsto take the first sentence they had after the initial sortand put it to the end to see how it changed the meaning. The original story was written by a student and had a lot more detail in, I have stripped it back to key sentences for these lessons - it is printed in its original format so mix up before giving out or students will identify that it is the dog telling the story straight away, I don't reveal the original until they have all completed theirs. You should get a lot of interesting interpretations of the story from students. I ask them to print the first copy and the final copy which we stick into books and they evaluate their work when finished. You can also use this work toidentify structural techniques and effects as well as using it for language analysis as they can explain clearly the effect they wanted to create.... MORE

This is a basic reference tool to enable students to read and respond to questions about inaccuracies in SPaG for DIRT lessons, or in grammar teaching. I use it with a writing target bank based on the errors I encounter when marking student work. I use these in a SPaG station for students to take to their desks during DIRT, but others in my department have them sellotaped to desks for everyday reference.The original is found at https://satscompanion.com/product/spag-placemat/...
