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.

Teaching David Almond in Year 7

Specifically written for the new 2014 KS3 English National Curriculum.

A fun and stimulating scheme of work with 15 one-hour lesson plans, worksheets and 14 PowerPoints, which supports your teaching of David Almond in detail through four texts:

  • My Name is Mina
  • Skellig
  • Wild Girl, Wild Boy
  • Jonadab

Each lesson focuses on a key element of Almond’s writing by referencing a specific text. Challenging yet engaging reading and writing activities, spoken language, teamwork, independent research and wider reading.

Lessons build towards a final reading assessment on The Savage to consolidate the knowledge gained over the 15 lessons.

Plus! Each lesson is cross-referenced to the current KS3 English AFs to help you with targeting assessment.

A comprehensive resource which clearly references National Curriculum Assessment focuses. The 2014 NC requirement to study an author in detail is clearly fulfilled by this resource. A Davenport, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (5525)
"This is an excellent resource. It can be picked up by teachers and taught straight away, with very little extra planning to do. It gives students a good breath of study and exposes them to more than one text." E Gasan, English Teacher
"I would definitely purchase this resource for my teaching and recommend it to other heads of department etc. This is a resource I would use for my KS3 pupils because I felt motivated reading the content and felt the content was both challenging and engaging. The document throughout was clear and precise and lesson plans were well written and allow for flexibility whilst having a clear structure. The resource gives opportunities for all pupils to access the author's work and extend their reading and critical skills." A Spooner, English Teacher
"A comprehensive resource which clearly references National Curriculum Assessment focuses. This is easy to use for teachers and has done most of the planning, so that teachers only need to adapt it to their classes. There was a nice range of activities, covering speaking and listening, reading and writing as well as independent research task. The 2014 National Curriculum requirement to study an author in detail is clearly fulfilled by this comprehensive resource and the National Curriculum guidelines are referenced." A Davenport, English Teacher
