There are seven character posters in this bundle: Eric, Sheila, Arthur and Sybil Birling; Gerald Croft; Inspector Goole; and Eva Smith/Daisy Renton.
Each poster features multiple relevant quotations, linked to character traits. These traits serve as the 'point' in a PEE/PEAS/PETER style response.
The posters work equally well printed in A4 or A3, and you could even miniaturise them further to serve as individual GCSE revision resources.
The posters can be bought individually on TES but this bundle allows you to save £4. Please look at the other resources I have available (for sale and for free) and if you have downloaded one that you have found useful I would be really grateful if you could leave a quick review. Thanks!
Writing Mat designed to assist students in the writing of the 90 words, 16 mark task, in the new AQA GCSE (1-9). It has lots of useful phrases, verb help, a pupil speak markscheme. Very useful to stick in the front of pupils' books/print out back to back and laminate for use in class. I have found they have gone down very well with the pupils when scaffolding the writing task.
26 Worksheets with answer page for each. Each worksheet has 7 questions where they guess how the public answered. Good for team work of individual work or a round in a mixed quiz. Most are suitable from age 8 - 18 or beyond, but do check each one yourself to check it is OK for your group. Questions and answers sourced across various books and the internet.

This two-week unit of English work, based on the book 'The Great Kapok Tree', works well alongside topics about rainforests, sustainability and Mayans. It can also be used as a standalone English unit. The resources are designed for Year 3 and Year 4.
The ten lessons in this unit use drama, discussion and creative activities to help pupils to engage imaginatively with the text. Pupils will become familiar with the structure of dilemma stories and then write and edit their own dilemma stories based on The Great Kapok Tree. There is also a grammar focus on using direct speech and plenty of activities designed to develop vocabulary.
The English objectives covered in this unit are:
- To retrieve information from non-fiction
- To design a ‘great tree’ setting
- To explore the structure of dilemma stories
- To punctuate direct speech correctly
- To use a range of speech verbs
- To use adverbs in dialogue (higher group)
- To identify persuasive devices
- To use a dictionary to find definitions
- To write a persuasive letter
- To prepare a group performance
- To plan a dilemma story
- To write my own dilemma story
- To edit and evaluate my writing
- To use a thesaurus

Complete Punctuation and SPaG scheme of work for Key Stage 3 and GCSE. It’s time to win the battle against poor grammar and punctuation once and for all!
Complete unit of work which will allow your students to master advanced punctuation as well as engage with a range of exciting creative writing tasks. If you are anything like me, explicit teaching/reminding of how to properly apply punctuation is ESSENTIAL for all ability ranges, especially with the new specification GCSE placing so much emphasis on AO6.
These lessons are certainly geared more towards KS3 and KS4 students. Powerpoints are light hearted and fun, with plenty of images/colour and silly jokes to keep your students engaged and entertained. I’ve found these lessons serve as an excellent ‘crash course’ in punctuation either at the beginning of the academic year or in the run up to the GCSE exams. Below is a list of contents:
Commas (£2 if purchased on its own) -
Commas powerpoint lessons
Commas in a list worksheet
Commas in a complex sentences worksheet
Colons (£2 if purchased on its own) -
Colon powerpoint lessons
Mastering colons worksheet
Semi-Colons (£2 if purchased on its own)-
Semi-colon lesson powerpoints
Semi-colon worksheets (x2)
Semi-colon writing success criteria worksheet
Speech- (£2 if purchased on its own)
Speech powerpoint lessons
Speech mixed practice worksheet
Writing success criteria worksheet
Editing and proof reading - (£3 if purchased on its own)
Editing and proof reading mini scheme powerpoint (nearly 50 slides)
Editing and proof reading worksheets (£2 if purchased separately)
A wide range of proof reading worksheets that you can use to consolidate and improve your student’s SPaG and proof reading abilities after you have finished the unit of work.
This unit would suit a range of abilities as there is lots of scope for stretch and challenge, with ambitious success criteria and extension tasks built in throughout. Scaffolding and differentiation options are built in where appropriate.
Fully resourced and ready to roll, minimal adaptation or tweaking required.
This is obviously a SPaG/Punctuation scheme of work, but it is equally focused on creative/descriptive writing too. Much of the content is therefore ideal for teaching general creative writing skills or preparing for the fiction writing task on the new specification (9-1) GCSE English Language exam.

This is a revision material for GCSE students studying the new AQA English Language course (first examination Jun 2017).
It gives a brief overview of what is expected in both Paper 1 and Paper 2 of the Language course and gives a breakdown of how to tackle each question. It does focus on use of SQuID and PEC paragraphs.
I have used this by printing and laminating a class set and using for revision basis. This has also been used on the students' homework system for them to access from home and help with revision there too.
An end of year report writer that allows you to quickly create pupil reports simply by clicking on a series of user modifiable comments. Comments are organised into 9 sections (opening, behavioural, progress, strengths, weaknesses, closing and 3 user defined categories with 18 comments in each section). Comments automatically update to insert pupil names and to match gender specific pronouns (he/she, his/her etc). Once assembled the comments can be copied and pasted into your own report packages and a file containing all the reports for your class set can be created. Suitable for all teachers at all key stages through suitable modification of the comments in the comment banks. This is Version 2 which scrolls even faster between comment categories.
This is an Excel file which uses macros to run, read the help sheet in the file to enable macros.

This resource is aimed at Year 6 pupils in order to get them ready for their SATs test. This resource is made up of 5 worksheets that allow children to practice specific question types. The first four focus on different questions: circle the correct answer, ‘how do you know’ questions, ‘what the word suggest’ questions and ‘finding evidence’ questions. The final sheet is a revision of the previous 4 sheets. I have used these as the starter to my reading lessons. There are suggested answers included.

Eight different extracts to use with students from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
