A complete scheme of work for 11-14 year olds with ready to use adaptable lesson plan presentations studying The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - Holocaust novel. Adapted from a scheme of work online, and can be further adapted if you wish. Assessment at the end of the unit is included.
We initially designed these worksheets to be used in 20 minute tutor periods across the whole of KS3 as part of a Literacy drive. However, they could also be used as starters in skills-based lessons; maybe in the build-up to Functional Skills tests? We hope they're useful, either way!
N.B. The &'worksheets&'; can be projected onto whiteboards: printing/photocopying not necessarily required.
