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.

The Hobbit Notes and Activities

This resource offers students of all abilities the opportunity to practice their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills by studying a very popular and much loved children’s book.

The opportunity to write, draw or collage and role-play major characters gives students the choice to learn in differing ways. More advanced learners are then given an opportunity to verbalise and clarify both these verbal and visual descriptions and connections to other students. J Robinson, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Worksheets ensure that every chapter of the novel has a choice of varied tasks cross-referenced to KS3 Assessment Foci so that students and teachers can monitor progress in key areas and pick the most appropriate worksheets for class."

Love it - even more so because I’m about to launch into a unit on this. Great that the activities which relate to the assessments are clearly listed at the top of the sheets so learners can see if they are making progress, when and where. A Baiden, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Grids for Assessing Pupil’s Progress and teacher’s guidance make this text easy to deliver!

I have shown this resource to my KS3 co-ordinator and we are considering it for the next academic year. All AFs are covered in reading, writings, speaking and listening so teachers can feedback accurate data and identify specific targets and strengths. K Greaves, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

Original illustrations enhance students’ learning!


What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5160)
"Excellent, extremely thorough with a wide variety of tasks and lots of differentiated activities. Strong focus on APP with lots of guidance and planning sheets to assist with this. A range of reading, writing and speaking and listening activities. Ticks all the boxes for KS3 English. Havent read this book with a class for years but I feel inspired to do it as a class text again. Will definitely give it a go and use some of the excellent ideas in this resource so much scope! My compliments to the writer." N Boyce, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This offers students the opportunity to practice their reading, writing, speaking and listening by studying a very popular much loved childrens book and the prior differentiation of some task sheets into 3 ability levels is helpful both for teachers and students. The opportunity to write, draw or collage and role-play major characters also gives students the choice to learn in differing ways. More advanced learners are then given an opportunity to verbalise and clarify both these verbal and visual descriptions and connections to other students, thus reinforcing both their literacy and confidence in their public speaking skills. The Foundation, Improver and Advanced tasks give all students of varying abilities a chance to learn, progress and challenge themselves." J Robinson, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"I have shown this resource to my KS3 co-ordinator and we are considering it for the next academic year. This is a good resource and the activities are differentiated for varying abilities. Teachers can dip in and out of this scheme and adapt tasks to suit their assessment timings in school. The resource is easy for staff and students to access because everything is put across in such a clear manner. All AFs are covered in reading, writings, speaking and listening so teachers can feedback accurate data and identify specific targets and strengths. " K Greaves, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"Love it - even more so because Im about to launch into a unit on this. Great that the activities which relate to the assessments are clearly listed at the top of the sheets so learners can see if they are making progress, when and where. Very focused and clear learning outcomes - great for making learners aware of the point of the activity. Great work - you've saved me a ton of time!" A Baiden, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
