Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:

  • 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.

War Horse Scheme of Work

The teaching of a contemporary novel at KS3 made easy with 12 lesson plans which explore the popular novel War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. All supporting resources included, plus: additional teaching ideas, differentiation tips and high quality film-stills provided courtesy of DreamWorks and Disney Studios.

The resource makes it almost impossible to go wrong with the plan and still leaves room for flexibility with lower ability learners. Penglais English Department

This scheme will develop reading, writing and speaking & listening skills through engaging activities while ensuring that students' enjoy reading the novel, develop questioning skills and develop empathy with characters and the era that it is set in.

The resource can be used as a full scheme of work with lesson plans and worksheets. Alternatively, you can pick and choose resources which are appropriate for your lessons.

Also includes film-stills on PowerPoint presentations to use during your lessons.


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5069)
"The resource is excellently laid out with simple diagrams/formats and engaging images from the recent film. The activities are thoughtful and varied. The SOW outline is clear-cut and closely tuned to the AFs. It makes it almost impossible to go wrong with the plan, and still leaves room for flexibility with lower ability learners. The detailed lesson plans seem to cover all eventualities, especially with the 'suggestions' at the bottom of each one. Really well considered! A simple resource that works hard for progressive results." Penglais English Department, Ind. Reviewer
"The resource is focused towards the assessment but still allows opportunities for the students to be creative. It includes all strands of English and allows the students to develop their skills independently and through group/paired work." K Greaves, English teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This is a great resource. I like the way that each lesson is clearly built on the objectives and Afs. The resource develops questioning and empathy with characters and the era that it is set in." H Ward, KS3 English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This resource is well written and engaging. It would support a teacher wishing to teach war horse and give them a clear idea about how much time they needed to read and analyse the book. Differentiation was good and activities varied across different AFs. Clearly enhances learning by making an enjoyable and accessible text easy for the teacher to read and analyse with the students, and enables the students to produce work that matches their AFs." J Whitbread, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
