  • 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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5092)
"Excellent resource for any school. I've found this resource very helpful and my students have enjoyed the activities in this resource. My students have found it engaging and they have progressed well because of this. It caters for a range of abilities and the information is presented in different ways." K Greaves, English Teacher and Satisfied Customer
"This resource has done the work for you, which is great! Nicely pitched for the age group, it offers clear yet detailed notes about the author and his background. I really liked the inclusion of sentence starters, as this is something I would do for my own students to support them in their writing; but is very time consuming." A Davenport, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This resource was good and includes a range of activities. The activities are differentiated and there are challenging tasks for higher ability students and sentence starters to help those who may struggle in their writing. This resource has a strong focus on the social context of the novel and includes tasks which will interest and engage KS3 students, especially when discussing the relationships between the characters. I feel it would enhance the resources I already have on this text." K Greaves, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
