Kindertransport: Activity Pack

for Pearson Edexcel International GCSE English Literature

Set in two simultaneous time frames, Kindertransport terminates at the junction where past and present collide. This engaging companion provides a variety of stimulating, ready-to-use activities, covering all aspects of Samuels' poignant play.

Activities include:

  • Insightful questions
  • Stimulating reading and writing tasks
  • Pair and group work
  • Spoken language practice
  • Creative activities
  • Essay questions
  • Whole-text plot quiz

Carefully considered structure develops understanding:

  1. Build a foundation for learning and get students interested with introductory pre-reading exercises.
  2. Dig deeper with text-based activities. Every main event is explored through a range of thought-provoking tasks.
  3. Consolidate knowledge with whole-text activities focusing on: Plot • Language • Characterisation • Ideas and messages and more!

All activities are perfectly matched to the Pearson Edexcel International GCSE Assessment Objectives, and the fantastic structure makes the pack accessible for your whole class – differentiation is built in through extension activities.

Fantastic piece of really focused work. There is loads of useful information for use at all stages of the teaching process. - P Tomkins, Head of English and Peer Reviewer (Previous edition)
