These are the activities you can complete to keep up to date with your KS4 English during March and April 2020

 

 

Year 9

Year 9 Term 3 Instructions

Work from Monday April 27th onwards.

 

You have 4 hours of English per week. Make sure you spend this time on your poetry study.  A suggestion is 2 hours per poem. Some poems are longer than others so may take you longer.

  1. Read the poem- aim to understand the poem. Listen to the Youtube clip provided to help you understand the words and rhythm of the poem.
  2. Use the sheet that is saved as ‘poetry helpsheet’ to help you create the MOPLIST for each poem.
  3. Use Stacey Reay’s or Mr Bruff’s Youtube videos for each poem to help you write notes and annotate (label) the poem.
  4. Answer the questions for each poem either in the booklet or on paper.
  5. There are extension activities on the last page that you can have a go at when you finish.

Useful places to find help:

  1. The helpsheet on KEYS. If you can print this off it will be most helpful.
  2. KEYS- go on to each of the PowerPoints I have uploaded. There is one for each poem. These are what I use in class to teach and you will get some help from them.
  3. YouTube. Mr Bruff has a whole channel. He even has a rap to help you remember quotations. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mr+bruff+power+and+conflict

 Type in Mr Bruff Ozymandias for example.

  1. YouTube Stacey Reay- she is another excellent English teacher that uploads videos on each of the poems. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=stacey+reay+power+and+conflict
  2. BBC Bitesize- some of our poems can be found at : https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zs43ycw
  3. Ask us, email your English teacher and we will try to help you.

Try your best, good luck! Miss Forker
