These resources are the product of my retirement! After years as a teacher, I tutored. Tackling different exam boards, texts and aspects of English I had to develop lots of materials, which I'm hoping will help those of you still at the chalk face.

8 Sherlock Holmes comprehensions from 8 different stories

(1)
These 8 extracts (from: Speckled Band, Study in Scarlett, Hound of Baskervilles,Engineer’s Thumb, Boscombe Valley Mystery, Silver Blaze, 5 Orange Pips & Scandal in Bohemia,) all contain a mixture of language, vocabulary and information retrieval style comprehension questions. The comprehensions are suitable for introducing KS3 students to texts from pre 1914 and providing experience of the demands of the 9-1 GCSE . They focus on the more accessible, interesting sections of the Sherlock Holmes Mysteries & as such, hopefully provide an impression of the characters of Sherlock & Watson, as well as the language and setting, and the complexities of Conan Doyle’s work. To see a similar style resource, please look at my free worksheet on Hard Times.

Comprehension from the start of 'Hard Times', Dickens now with answers!

(3)
A short extract from the start of the novel, with questions on vocabulary, character, and language analysis, and a choice of writing task. It would serve to introduce KS3 students to the style of Dickens’ writing; to a memorable character, Thomas Gradgrind; to Victorian times, raising some of the issues encountered in GCSE 9-1 literature and to a piece of brilliant writing! Hope its useful! I’ve now added an answer sheet.
