I have a number of different resources for English - they include KS3 and KS4 resources for AQA, creative writing, travel writing and poetry. Most of resources are free, but there are a few I have put on here that are priced from £1.00 - £4.00. The more expensive lessons are full schemes of work. I would really appreciate any feedback on the resources.

This is a coplete short scheme, teaching paper2 AQA language. I made this for a year 10 group of low ability students, but it should work for any students. It is broken down in order for students to be able to individually access the work at home. There is a main focus on the comparison questions. There are 2 sets of practice papers.

This resource covers reading and writing skills and looks at different sub-genres of Sci-Fi literature. There are reading and writing skills integrated throughout. There are a number of independent tasks for students to complete. The idea is to give studnets a grounding in both genres in order for them to be able to apply these ideas to the literature they study.

This is a scheme of work with over 17 lessons on unseen poetry. There are lots of creative ideas in the scheme and differentiated materials. This is a full scheme of work and could be used for year 9, 10 or 11. It does cover a huge number of poems and skills. There are some poems The idea of the scheme is to give a wide view on poetry and hoe students can look at imagery, language and structure - this is tailored towards skills for the AQA seen and unseen poetry sections and is skill based.

These are the first two lessons of a scheme of work for year 9 on poetry. I will be selling the rest of the scheme for £2 for 18 more lessons with an anthology as well. The lessons are planned to engage students with poetry at the same time as teaching them key skills they’ll need for GCSE seen and unseen poetry. I have tried to use poems for imagery, language, structure and form, so that they can really develop their skills in discussing the different aspects of poetry. You could use the scheme for older and younger students as well and it could be used to teach unseen poetry to GCSE. This might not work if you are using the power and conflict poems for AQA as some of them are in the scheme. Please feel free to leave comments about the lessons I have uploaded.

I used this to look at the openings of a number of different Dickens novels and then use what they had learned to write their own. The example is mine. They can read the extracts in one lesson and then think about the ingredients of a Dickensian novel.

I am using this with my high ability year 8 group. I am going to give them 15 minutes on each task. 5 minutes to read the extract and then 10 minutes to complete the activity. If you have lower ability students you could use some of the ideas and adapt them. I took these passages from someone else on TES - so thank you to that person.

I created this for my year 8 class, but you could use this with different year groups as well. I have used different resources from other people and my own, to create this into a scheme of work. I have included all the powerpoints and resources for the scheme.
