Hi Team English! I hope you are all enjoying (or have enjoyed) your half term. After the craziness of September, we’re back with the Weekly Resource Round-Up of the most handy resources shared on Team English in the last two weeks.
We are thrilled that so many of you have now signed up to Litdrive. Every week I will now add some of the highlights from the weekly uploads on Litdrive; they will be listed at the end of the blog. If you or any colleagues are yet to do so then please get yourselves over there ASAP; it’s an absolute goldmine of the best of Team English resources. Excitingly, there is also now a section for Media and Film Studies teachers so there are even more reasons to sign up!
Have a great week,
Nikki and Becky
1) KS3 Homework Reading Olympiad – @MissMFrost
A few people have asked, so I thought I’d share what we do for KS3 homework – our Reading Olympiad (inspired by @vmahoud). It’s still a work in progress, but it’s producing great results so far (oh, and, no marking! 🙌) #teamenglish @Team_English1 https://t.co/VvWV7GsdLg https://t.co/NRU9wxp0ly

2) Power and Conflict knowledge organiser – @spryke2
Still working on how to put a Knowledge Organiser together but here’s one for ‘Conflict Poetry’ that I made this afternoon. Designed for use with KS3 but may be useful for KS4 as well. Use/chuck/change as you see fit! @Team_English1 https://t.co/dCbXRs5s0v
