  • 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.

One of the best [resources] I have reviewed. These are very accessible stories and they are very short making them easy to use in the classroom. S Mitchell, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5431)
"The legends and fables themselves were excellent both in range and reading level. A wide variety of tasks which were directly related to the KS3 Learning Objectives with special attention to the needs of ESOL and low ability learners. I liked the table with references to assessment focuses and the provision of answers. The resource would be particularly relevant in schools with students from a range of ethnic backgrounds and I love the multicultural and diverse nature of the content, which has the potential to introduce students to a wider study of legends and fables, storytelling, etc." D Massey, English Teacher
"I feel this is a useful resource which gets to the heart of learning with regard to building confidence in reading. The focus on individual words and meanings with exercises to demonstrate understanding is consistent and good for embedding skills. I think this will be a good building block for the skills required for iGCSE. The techniques required are those being built on here - ie use of language at word level. I really like this resource - good range of focused activities which would make a real difference to those learning from it." A Quidder, KS3 Co-ordinator and Ind. Reviewer
"Substantial resources which were well thought out and developed across the scheme." A Litchfield, Head of English and Ind. Reviewer
"This resource is clearly presented and the instructions for teachers are very clear. Not only will this resource increase the confidence of your lower ability students but it will increase your confidence in being able to teach these students effectively." K Greaves, English Teacher
"It is one of the best I have reviewed. These are very accessible stories and they are very short making them easy to use in the classroom." S Mitchell, English Teacher
