My teaching career began in 2013 as an English lecturer in a FE college. I was the lead for English and Maths in a variety of different curriculum areas, and taught on the GCSE, Functional Skills, & Access to HE courses. I'm now a SEND tutor for a local authority, as well as a GCSE English Literature examiner. I love sharing any resources I create.

Each A4 sheet contains 1 letter of the alphabet, plus a letter value so students can add up their word scores. I printed these and laminated them so I could use them with my SEND functional skills students. However, they could also be used with GCSE and primary learners. They are perfect for outdoor learning of 1 or more students. They can be used in multiple ways i.e.as part of a spelling task, or a giant crossword style game where learners have to spell the correct answers to clues given. There are 100 sheets, which include: A x 9 pages B x 2 pages C x 2 pages D x 4 pages E x 12 pages F x 2 pages G x 3 pages H x 2 pages I x 9 pages J x 1 page K x 1 page L x 4 pages M x 2 pages N x 6 pages O x 8 pages P x 2 pages Q x 1 page R x 6 pages S x 4 pages T x 6 pages U x 4 pages V x 2 pages W x 2 pages X x 1 page Y x 2 pages Z x 1 page Blank x 2 pages
