  1. Thank you so much for all this…I am using the ‘spare’ time I have without marking to do some subject knowledge learning. This is all amazingly useful. Thanks again.


  2. Loving the Prince theme, being a massive fan too.

    I am a functional skills teacher and the letter layout etc. I think are fantastic, thank you for sharing.


  3. These blogs and resources are fantastic. Thank you for sharing your fabulous stuff! I saw a very recent tweet where you had a picture of your transactional writing pieces annotated for your high school. Are these available to be shared? They looked so snazzy but streamlined!


    • Thank you, so nice of you to say so! On my home page I list all blogs and many other resources across blogs, and if you check out the GCSE page, there are some nice resources there too (less on Alevel).
      Thank you.
