Adult Literacy, Functional English, and GCSE Resources

Displaying 1 - 3 of 3 resources:

Comprehension based on a Red Nose Day order form for schools. Two comprehensions – one L1/L2, one E3. Also some embedded maths and the E3 version includes form filling.

I recommend introducing the form with a discussion about features of text and layout.
The PDF form is available below and also online at:https://shop.rednoseday.com/sites/default/files/docs/rnd15_schools_orde…

Voluntary & Charity

Based on a short story, Highland Fling by Maureen Brannigan, from “Sexy Shorts for the Beach” edited by Victoria Kirwan-Taylor (Accent Press). However some of the writing and poetry extension activities could be used without reading the short story. Not just for romantics – the writing assignment might also cause great hilarity! Covers all Level 2 writing elements and many Level 2 reading elements (main points, research, summarise information, etc.).

A brilliant resource – especially for younger, teenage students. Includes an original poem, discussion of slang, background info on Valentine’s Day, writing and speaking ideas.
