Here they all are with all the questions that could come up that I can think of. Enjoy..
These have been emailed to students and parents, and here there are too. No excuses year 11 – we’ve helped with the reducing – now it’s time for you to get on with the memorising and practising. (ps we know how hard many of you are working. In fact if that’s you, stop and have a cup of tea and a laugh with someone!)
I’ve suggested that my class only learn quotes from these 4 poems (but I know some teachers think that’s a bit risky – so do what your teacher tells you to do!!) We only have 3 quotes from each for now, but will identify two more from each poem so will have 5 from each, or 20 in total by the real GCSEs. Remember my class that you must be able to identify the 3 key quotes from every poem (not just these four) if you look at a blank copy of it (Mr Johnson has put blank copies here, but you have to scroll down a bit in the document for the Conflict poems: https://englishatturton.edublogs.org/2016/08/01/year-11-poetry-exam-revision-guide/)
CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE
Miss Cowell, the genius that she is, discovered this recording of ‘A Christmas Carol’. So download it and you can listen to it on the bus, waiting for your tea or whatever. They might be in the wrong order, or not work well from this site. If you prefer to just download directly for yourself, the site is here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03g64q4/episodes/downloads
You’ll find the Christmas Carol quotes here: quote-acc
Please read them and why not think about adding some of your own?
When you’ve read them you must select the following:
2 quotes to learn from the dark green table
2 quotes to learn from the orange table
2 quotes to learn from the red table
1 quote from the yellow table
The 3 highlighted in bright pink in the bright blue table ( entitled The Spirits)
1 from the lilac table ( Ignorance and Want)
2 from the light grey ( stave 4)
1 from the mint green ( Fred and Belle)
2 from the dark grey table ( poverty and wealth)
***The quotes highlighted in bright pink should be learnt by everyone.***
I appreciate that memory tasks are difficult. Why not try illustrating some of the quotes, producing flash cards or placing the quotes around your bedroom?
I hope that you’re having a restful and productive break.
Superb response by Danielle Jeffries to a poetry question. war-photographer-comparison-djeff
Awesome idea from a clever man called David Didau. My year 11, remember to look at this for your essay that you’re handing in on Monday.
Try this site. It’s from some chaps who’ve done their research into the ways human beings learn – they’ve then transformed this extensive knowledge into bite size chunks that are perfect for students. Check it out:
