Pre-order Items

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

The House of Silk Teacher's Notes and Student Worksheets

I've bought extra copies of House of Silk as I was so impressed with the level of study this resource will offer KS3 pupils. N Timmis, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

This resource helps develop students reading, writing, spoken language and listening skills by exploring the first official Sherlock Holmes novel written since Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The resource includes over 70 engaging activities presented as worksheets: covering pre-reading, chapter-by-chapter and the whole-text. This enables the resource to be worked through in parallel with reading in class or for homework.

Guidance, answers and AF grids provided in the Teaching Notes ensures simple delivery and quick marking of activities.

Activities include: research, close reading, creative thinking, text analysis, comprehension and evaluation questions, creative and critical writing, discussions, crosswords and may more!

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5292)
"Would I purchase this resource?Most definitely... one of the best I've seen and gives excellent value for money. Highly motivating and well written." A Spooner, English Teacher
"I've bought extra copies of House of Silk too as I was so impressed with the level of study this resource will offer - by way of the resource - KS3 pupils. It will certainly save teachers a great deal of time, particularly if they are teaching the novel for the first time, or if they haven't taught/read it for a while. Additionally, the pupil work-sheets are age appropriate and aesthetically appealing. In addition, all is mapped out clearly in terms of how the KS3 curriculum is matched." N Timmis, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
"This resource would encourage students to become more independent as the worksheets are supportive and clearly explained. There aren't many resources currently for this text and this would be useful to departments using this text. The resource information and instructions are clear which make it easily accessible to teachers and students. The resource could be used during cover lessons and as homework if required. It covers the AFs for this key stage group and has a good focus on literacy." K Greaves, English Teacher and Ind. Reviewer
