Editor's note

A multi-faceted resource that uses a combination of texts, video and images. Includes discussion prompts, short writing tasks and many short but complex reading texts with an emphasis on technical vocabulary. There is also careful attention to underpinning skills such as inference, language features and punctuation. There is enough material in here for many themed lessons!
