Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

'Good to see a comprehensive outline of work for a much-ignored part of our literary heritage, especially at KS3.'
A Baiden, English Teacher & Ind. Reviewer

 

Beowulf

A Resource Pack for KS3


Supports APP

A comprehensive scope of activities to enjoy and explore a key text in our Literary Heritage

Contains a 12-lesson SoW with objectives, starters, developments, plenaries and homework assessments. Includes a 4,000 word extract of the poem, lovingly translated and abridged for accessibility while retaining Anglo-Saxon poetic devices. Students will develop a range of skills by actively learning and appreciating the language, themes and culture of the poem.

  • Students explore the poem dramatically and get to try translating an extract
  • Cross-referenced to the new NC and Writing AFs

'A well organised scheme that will breathe new life into the ancient Anglo-Saxon poem... It's great to see an original scheme of work that tackles a tough choice of text like this — many students will benefit from a literary gem that they would sadly not have enjoyed otherwise.'
P Russell, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3350)
A really good resource. Lots of interactive resources, engaging and interesting. There are lots of opportunities for discussion here, and the lessons are really well planned.' M Mallows, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'It has a comprehensive scope of activities in a short period of time, and encourages students to consider and 'relive' the Anglo-Saxon experience. By the end of this scheme, students should have a good understanding of the culture of the Anglo-Saxons, as well as deducing character and exploring language.' P Russell, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
'This resource teaches pupils about their own heritage, something often missing when "Other Cultures" are introduced. Pupils are encouraged to research on their own, which is tool that they need across the curriculum... A very useful resource [with a] variety of activities for pupils. Covers Reading AF7 which is can be difficult to do, so [it is] very handy.' A Williams, KS3 Coordinator and Independent Reviewer
'Good to see a comprehensive outline of work though for a much-ignored part of our literary heritage, especially at KS3... Nice drama activities and the scheme has lots of practical activities which students would enjoy.' A Baiden, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
