English KS3/4 - worksheets

It is essential that students in this age group have an understanding of everyday topics - politics, the world around us, people's rights and beliefs. They should be encouraged to analyse what they see and hear on TV and the radio, read a variety of newspapers, so that they they are aware of a variety of viewpoints before forming their own opinions.  Here you will find some more advanced writing tasks on a variety of subjects and in various forms. At this age pupils should be able to embrace all forms of writing including: letter writing, debating, Shakespeare and compiling dissertations. KS3 spelling can be found on the spelling page.
