Power and Conflict Paper Chains

I’ve been inspired by Twinkl who created some paper chain poetry activities and thought they would be perfect for revising Power & Conflict. At my school, we use PEACE paragraphs to structure student responses: Point, Evidence, Analysis, Context, Evaluate. These paper chains create example PEACE paragraphs. Once students complete their PEACE paragraph chain they can go and get a comparison/link chain to connect poems together. You could also leave these blank for pupils to write their own & extend the challenge.

I posted these casually on Twitter but lots of people have asked for them so here you go!

An Inspector Calls – Christmas Bingo Card!

I wanted to give my Year 10 students some work to complete over the Christmas holidays but equally nothing too strenuous. I am asking my students to complete at least two of these tasks and then encouraging them to do more by giving them some prizes for a line/full house! Mostly, I wanted this to provide some contextual background to the play before we begin studying it in the new year.

You can find the Bingo Christmas Card here. It’s editable too! Enjoy & share away.

Creative Writing: Christmas Edition

Here is a creative writing lesson inspired by the BBC Christmas advert! I initially planned this for my bottom set Year 8s so it may well need some adaptation.

Merry December…

Black History Month – Tutor Time PowerPoint

October is Black History Month and so as my first year being a tutor (and an NQT) I really wanted to address it in a meaningful way with the students!

Sadly, I ran a Twitter poll (which I know is in no way totally accurate or representative) but at the time of writing this, the overwhelming majority of people weren’t doing anything for Black History Month in their schools!

We have ‘circle time’ once a week with our tutees so I was planning on spending two weeks on this. I wanted to use the PowerPoint in the first week and then set them off on a mini homework to research a black figure (current or historical) and create a poster/be ready to present what they’ve found out the following week.

I feel really strongly about including more black figures within our curriculum but also within our daily conversations with pupils. I think this is a fantastic way to engage students into some independent research whilst also promoting Black History Month in such a way that isn’t merely a token gesture.

Check the notes to read through how the slides can be used.

Structure Strips for Poetry Comparison

Hello all! It’s been a while…

I’ve made some structure strips (as inspired by @mrlockyer on Twitter) for my gorgeous Year 10 group (target grades ranging from 4-7).

 

As they complete their work, I’ll post up some of the results but for now…enjoy your free download from this link here.

Poetry Response Flow Chart

I created this and posted it on Twitter asking for some feedback but lots of people seemed to like it so I thought that I would share it on here with a couple of tweaks. I designed this for my mid-ability Year 10 group who are just starting out on their GCSE course. I haven’t yet tried this on my pupils but it is a developed version that I used from last year so I can vouch for its efficacy!

This isn’t for a comparative question but it is mostly to get them thinking about how to write about poetry & bring in all of the information. There are other resources on comparing two poems which you can find on the Power & Conflict SoW I designed which you an find under KS4.

These sheets are editable so in theory you could use them to help students with anything at all! I’ve also added some notes on the file about how I was planning to use them which you can see here:
