I have devised dedicated basic skills lessons for all year groups up to Y9. They have 4 lessons a week, one of which is one basic skills. These work on all skills needed, and work towards being able to use these skills in GCSE.<br />
Also included are Personalised Learning Checklists for each year and GCSE Lit and Lang (eduqas).
