Hello! I am an English and media studies teacher and have been teaching for 7 years, 3 of which have been spent in the Middle East. My resources span across KS3, GCSE, A Level and IB. I'm a big fan of creative, eye-catching displays that help children to learn and help themselves in the classroom so many of my resources are snippets of things I have in my own classroom. My banner photo shows how you could use them in your own setting. I hope my resources are useful to you!
