Blood Brothers Complete Unit/ Scheme of Work/ SOW (AQA)

This is a complete set of 14 lessons on 'Blood Brothers', designed for KS4 students preparing for AQA English Literature. The lessons are broken down by song so no matter which version of the text you have copies of, it should be easy to follow. It covers the whole play and I used these lessons as an accompaniment to reading the text for the first time. Also included in this set is a copy of my best-selling Blood Brothers knowledge organiser, which is a great revision tool and can be used for setting homework. In addition to this, I have included my consolidation sheets for Act 1 and Act 2, which make a great independent revision activity. Please take a look in my TES store for other Blood Brothers resources and additional standalone lessons on key topics from the play.
