About Me: I am a teacher of KS3 and KS4 English Language and Literature at an Outstanding High School. Fed up of paying for resources that weren't up to the standard that my students required (or resources that needed endless adapting), I decided to start making my own. All of the resources in this shop have been tried and tested by myself and my department - I don't believe in selling things that I wouldn't use myself! Any feedback you have on any of my resources would be greatly appreciated!

KS3 English Cover Pack (Language & Literature)

I was struggling to find a decent pack of cover lessons for English that was full of engaging material that would last a whole lesson, as there is nothing worse than waking up ill and having to set cover work. So I decided to make one. There are 14 activities in total, covering the following topics Unseen Poetry (2 lessons) Shakespeare (2 lessons) English Language Paper 1: Question 5 (2 lessons) English language Paper 2: Question 5 (2 lessons) Class Reader Novel (1 lesson) Text comprehension (English language Q1-3 style) (2 lessons) Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Quiz Subject Terminology Word search & Cross word Each activity is designed to fit on one sheet to make it easy to print.
