Editor's Pinboard


At this time of year your younger learners can take a back seat. However, once you’re over the exam hump, you might be on the look out for some ideas to liven up your lower school lessons.
I’ve chosen some resources to help you continue to foster a love of learning in English.

Teaching ideas for Key Stage 3

  If you're picking up classes for colleagues out on trips, or looking for something for a library lesson, 'So many books, so little time' will get your students thinking about their reading habits and what matters to them when reading. You could even use it for year 6 taster sessions or get ultra-organised for your new classes next year!

Top of our download chart this year and great for a heads up on what's to come in Key Stage 4, the stunning resource 'Writing to argue and persuade: techniques' includes examples of the language to use in persuasive writing. Use it as a learning mat or poster for your classroom when the display boards are looking shabby at the edges!

Another very popular resource and great for analysing descriptive writing as well as putting it into practice is 'Descriptive writing – extreme weather'. The resource includes clear definitions of word classes and what to include when writing effective descriptions.

Packed with tried and tested ideas for the classroom and perfect for reigniting your creative spark at the end of the year, The Full English is suitable for all your learners in KS3-5.

It is full of practical and quick teaching approaches for any topic or text and is just £12.50 for Teachit English subscribers, key contributors and NATE members, or £16.25 for free members and non-members.
