I am rewriting the SoW for ks3 in my department. I have a <u>very</u> low ability year 8 class! We have read Face (autumn 1) and done a non-fiction scheme of work (autumn 2.) Any ideas for what I can do with them in Jan/Feb? Some are barely literate and struggle to read and understand even very basic texts. Handwriting for most of them is awful. They also have the attention spans of gnats! I'd really be interested in a unit which pushes basic skills of literacy, handwriting and spelling - any ideas or reccommendations? Thanks.
