  1. Hi all,

    thanks in advance

    Hello,
    I have a low ability year 7 group and I went with The Pied Piper of Hamelin as a narrative poem. The great thing about this is that there is a nice clay type animation on you tube so every lesson we would look at a section of the poem, watch a bit of the video and complete tasks (quite a few drama based) on that section. I have uploaded that scheme I think onto the tes resource area.
