'Introduces students to the literary heritage & allows students to understand where English is from and how it has developed. An excellent piece of work, very detailed and very enjoyable, my students enjoyed bits I trialled on them!'
C Barker, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

'It has clearly defined outcomes to show what can be achieved and there is a wide range of resources and activities to appeal to various types of learners. I think the guided work is particularly good, especially in terms of differentiation.'
A Baiden, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

'It will bring Chaucer's English to life through the images and audio, bringing an important part of our heritage to young secondary school pupils. The recordings emphasise the melody of the poetry. There are good pupil planning prompts for the essay and this is suitable for a range of different abilities.
D Coppard, Head of English and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3331)
'Outstanding. Pupils will be engaged from beginning to end, in every session. Makes a potentially dull subject come to life and updates it for a modern, young audience. Fun, informative and motivational.' M Mallows, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'I thought the resource was very well developed, with lots of detail. It matched the schemes for English well, was well laid out and easy to follow. I particularly liked having the resources in both modern and Old English and the break down of outcomes for each week according to levels. Overall, an excellent piece of work, very detailed and very enjoyable; my students enjoyed bits that I trialled on them.' C Barker, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
