Worksheets ensure that every chapter of the novel has a choice of varied tasks cross-referenced to KS3 Assessment Foci so that students and teachers can monitor progress in key areas and pick the most appropriate worksheets for class."

Great that the activities which relate to the assessments are clearly listed at the top of the sheets so learners can see if they are making progress, when and where. Very focused and clear learning outcomes - great for making learners aware of the point of the activity.

This offers students the opportunity to practice their reading, writing, speaking and listening by studying a very popular much loved childrens book and the prior differentiation of some task sheets into 3 ability levels is helpful both for teachers and students. The opportunity to write, draw or collage and role-play major characters also gives students the choice to learn in differing ways. More advanced learners are then given an opportunity to verbalise and clarify both these verbal and visual descriptions and connections to other students, thus reinforcing both their literacy and confidence in their public speaking skills. The Foundation, Improver and Advanced tasks give all students of varying abilities a chance to learn, progress and challenge themselves.

This is a good resource and the activities are differentiated for varying abilities. Teachers can dip in and out of this scheme and adapt tasks to suit their assessment timings in school. The resource is easy for staff and students to access because everything is put across in such a clear manner. All AFs are covered in reading, writings, speaking and listening so teachers can feedback accurate data and identify specific targets and strengths.

Excellent, extremely thorough with a wide variety of tasks and lots of differentiated activities. Strong focus on APP with lots of guidance and planning sheets to assist with this. A range of reading, writing and speaking and listening activities. Ticks all the boxes for KS3 English. Havent read this book with a class for years but I feel inspired to do it as a class text again. Will definitely give it a go and use some of the excellent ideas in this resource so much scope! My compliments to the writer.
