Take KS4 Cover
KS4 English cover lessons pack

Take KS4 Cover is the sequel to our popular cover lessons pack Take Cover, for Key Stage 3. Once again, our aim is to provide you with a range of meaningful, accessible cover lessons – this time for GCSE classes. The content is core without being too tied down to current specifications so we're confident that Take KS4 Cover will stand the test of time.

Written by established and successful Teachit contributors, the ringbinder pack, printed in black and white, has 56 stand-alone lessons ranging across the curriculum – so you're virtually guaranteed to find a lesson appropriate to your class, whether you're teaching English, English Language or English Literature. Topics include reading, writing, speaking and listening, spoken language, drama, prose and poetry, and we've also included a selection of the best one-offs from Teachit's resource libraries.

Lessons have been carefully designed for non-specialists, to make their job as straightforward as possible, and each lesson comprises a teacher sheet, student sheet and appropriate resources, so preparation is minimal. Differentiation is built in, with suggestions in each lesson to stretch the highest attainers and support the lowest, and in the English Language reading and writing sections each topic has two lessons, one aimed at Higher Tier and one at Foundation Tier.

The pack is flexible – there is no set route, and all lessons are suitable for use as a one-off. Where possible, we've provided links to other lessons on similar or related aspects, to allow development if the class teacher is away for more than one lesson.

"It is fabulous! Everything I need is just there ... I love the clear instructions for students so that teacher input is minimised for when a non-specialist does cover, while there is also work for specialist teachers."

– Edna Hobbs, Lytchett Minster School

Online access for all

The pack comes with access to an online version, so that your whole department will be able to find the cover work you need quickly and easily, even if you're out of school. This online version is in colour, to allow you to print colour images where applicable and/or display them on a whiteboard.
