Ready-made lesson plans

These four lessons were specially created by Impress Education for groups of around 200 students taking part in year 6 to 7 transition programmes for less confident readers and students who needed extra encouragement in English studies. 

They have also been used at summer camps with numerous participating schools. The slides include teacher reference notes for easy lesson management. Note: these are based on the UK school curriculum.
