Pre-order Items

  • 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.

Murder Mysteries

KS3 Resource Pack and Scheme of Work

Give your students the confidence and expertise to plan & write their own murder mystery!

A ready-to-go twelve lesson scheme of work, with engaging activities and worksheets. Introduces students to:
  • The conventions of a classic and exciting genre, the 'murder mystery'
  • The writing skill of 'English Literary Heritage' author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • The most famous fictional detective, Sherlock Holmes

The scheme is based on the study of two texts:

  • A Sherlock Holmes short story
  • Another murder mystery of your choosing

So flexible!

  • The scheme works with any Sherlock Holmes short story, as non text-specific worksheets are provided.
  • However: Worksheets specific to Sherlock Holmes short story 'The Adventure of the Norwood Builder' are provided so the scheme is completely ready-to-go! Full text also provided

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (4260)
'An excellent resource; very flexible for individual teachers' interpretations. I particularly liked the SoW as it provides a framework for teachers to use it as they wish, whether with the story that is included, or to apply it to another by ACD. The variety of activities for students are very good and they clearly identify skills in language areas. They also will highlight areas of students' weaknesses where required.
