As a" jobbing" teacher of English I KNOW what my students need to improve their literacy skills, comprehend what is required of them as regards reading criteria and what will inspire them to write to describe, argue or to help forge a narrative...and this knowledge is distilled into my resources! The photo-slides, model paragraphs, sentence stems, along with planning ideas, all compliment each other and as a jobbing teacher of English I can return to the resources time and time again...

Presentation of inspiring slides that capture a very idyllic image of England's countryside. Images of rolling hills and undulating dales to galvanise your students into writing a descriptive piece of writing. Also, sentence starters, discussion points, model paragraphs and a criteria checklist. Has proved useful with ks3 students and less able kss4 pupils. Stephen Fry said: "That there is nothing more beautiful than nature." Which is apt, as he went to school not far from where these photos were taken, and used to steal sweets from our local post office. I have also used this presentation to great effect with inner city kids..."I ain't never seen a field Sir."

All images are my own and taken in Laurie Lee's heartland.
