Jason & The Argonauts SoW for KS3

A scheme of work created for mixed ability sets. Only the most exciting sections of Jason and the Argonauts have been selected as the intention is pupils should become enthused with one of the oldest stories of our European literary heritage, with the hope that this will encourage them to extend their reading to cover texts that are not ordinarily encountered in an everyday (state) school setting.

  • All worksheets for each lesson are included, with starter activities and main activities for each lesson, and plenaries for some lessons.
  • Tailored to the Assessment Focuses throughout, with each activity clearly labeled with the relevant AFs.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4196)
It's a complete and useful resource for the teacher and motivating for the students. L Crespillo, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
'The tasks were creative in nature and would provide a mixture of fun but educational activities to engage KS3 pupils. As noted, the full coverage of objectives ensures that the resource was of educational benefit. The mixture of fiction and non-fiction inspired activities would be very useful to cover many different text types. The focus on language work is also very good.' V Kennedy, English Teacher, Independent Reviewer
'Well-resourced and well researched. Overall I was very impressed with the scheme that has potential to last longer than the 8 lessons suggested. There was a good deal of opportunity for pupils to explore the themes of "Jason and the Argonauts". There is also lots of writing frame and other scaffolding to enable those less able pupils to achieve. The resource makes a potentially difficult subject, Greek literature, accessible. It may pique the interest of pupils to delve further into this genre, and give pupils a loose ideas of some of the themes that classic literature explores. It was particularly effective at addressing the APP Assessment Focuses, particularly the Writing AFS. It provided pupils with the opportunity to look at how we can use powerful adjectives and adverbs to improve our writing.' N Osborne, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
