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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (6429)
"A well-crafted resource. I really liked this resource and it is quite comprehensive in its approach which is useful for teachers. The informal tone and address made it instantly accessible to me and to see how my classes could approach it too. It is also flexible and could be used in a number of ways as classroom activities, homework and revision activities in preparation for a written assessment at the end of KS3. It has an ongoing project feel to it, which makes it feel like students gain ownership of developing their own skills. It breaks down a difficult area and makes it relatable and manageable while being interesting for students. It takes away the ‘difficulty of writing a story’ element which students tend to fear and shy away from." J Forth, English Teacher
"The idea of the resource is brilliant. It is something that students will enjoy and love getting their teeth into, particularly with the current Young Adult fiction market. The resource ideas are really creative and allowed students to understand the different elements of the resource/ creative writing." A Newsham, English Teacher
"It is an engaging and appropriately challenging pack for any KS3 year group. It is challenging but structured in such a way as to support learners in the development of their skills. I think it is engaging, more so because it is not ‘dumbed down’. Any class would enjoy the intellectual ‘stretch’ in terms of both knowledge and skills. Very impressed!" A Baiden, English Teacher
