No more Lennie, no more Scout – sniff! If you’re feeling lost without them, you’ll find plenty of resources for your nineteenth century friends instead. We’ve been busy publishing resources for the new GCSEs for a while now, so I’ve selected a few to get you started.

Teaching ideas for GCSE English

All our resources that target skills for the new GCSEs are on our pages for GCSE English Language and GCSE English Literature.

Perfect for a spot of summer creativity to ease Year 9 into the new course, Creative writing picture prompts is full of rich images for descriptive writing.

Language effects in an unseen fiction text introduces some more advanced literary and linguistic terminology, which will help your students avoid feature spotting.

If you’ve covered off the ‘Power and conflict’ cluster in the AQA poetry anthology with your Year 10s, then our Power and conflict poetry quiz will offer some light relief.

To help students understand the context of nineteenth century texts, Reactions to Victorian London is a PowerPoint presentation of images and is also featured in our popular teaching packs for A Christmas Carol and The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
