‘Such a good concept, and really good activities. Engages students in both writing tasks in an interesting way, and also the PSHE elements of this kind of activity which ticks of the SMSC element of the lessons. There is plenty here, and it enables students to develop skills which will benefit them greatly in the non-fiction writing exam. I liked the variety of tasks. It engages students with the practical uses of language in this non-fiction context. This can be really dry, so giving students a competitive edge really helps. A pleasurable unit for both teachers and students.’ – K Chanter, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
