  • Great worksheet although I can't edit the editable version, which is a shame. All of the text seems to be part of a picture so words cannot be changed. It would be good to be able to do this as not all of the words are in the dictionaries we have.

  • It is frustrating that this resource is listed under KS3. It clearly isn't! I have wasted a lot of time looking for KS3 resources due to your failing filters.

    • Hi Cerys, thanks for commenting. Our KS3 English teacher looked through our KS2 resources to pick out some that might also be useful in Y7, and this was one of those. If there are specific KS3 resources that you're looking for please let us know using the 'request a resource' form (there's a link at the bottom of the page) and we can add them to the list to be made. We have plenty of new KS3 resources written specifically for the KS3 English curriculum and lots more on their way! :).
