KS3 units

Three years into my role and three years of constant spec changes with changes affecting KS3.  No more.  I’ve decided this year…even though it means working every Saturday…I am going to have all units written and in place before September for ALL year groups.  Next year, I am going to reclaim my life.  For sure.  Well, that’s the blinking plan.  So as I write them, I will share the KS3 units here.

Eventually the units will contain the following:

  1. A Medium Term Plan
  2. Student booklet
  3. Formative Assessments
  4. Summative Assessment
  5. Homework grid
