PateResources's Shop

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!

English Cover Work Bundle

I know the feeling when you have to rush around in the morning getting yourself sorted, only to find that somebody has called in sick and you need to set some emergency cover work for their classes. Similarly, I can’t tell you the amount of times I have witnessed teachers in my department struggling through the day with various illnesses because “it’s just easier to come in than to set cover work”. As an antidote to this, I made these resources for my department to take away the stress of setting cover. A range of tasks, activities and exam questions are included - all English specific. The KS4 tasks are all exam focused and there are activities to cover every aspect of the Language and Literature exams. The KS3 tasks are all based on building the skills needed to study Language and Literature at GCSE. All you need to do is print out the slide that you want the students to complete - all instructions are on the sheet. Hopefully, this will alleviate the strain of cover for you and your department too! Please check out my other resources. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
