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.

Comprehension from the start of 'Hard Times', Dickens

(0)
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

Abstract nouns and idioms

3 worksheets, one on abstract nouns, one on idioms, and one, harder one, matching idioms to abstract nouns. I made this for a bright Year 5 child I was tutoring, but used it with lower secondary pupils too. I’m always surprised at how difficult some idioms are for many students to fathom, yet they appear frequently in literature, so a little practice can be helpful…well, i hope you find it to be so!
