The Red Ribbon is a beautiful new book from writer, actor and costume historian, Lucy Adlington. It is a modern classic of love and friendship, set in the sewing room within the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp – and it will weave a path through history for the young imaginations in your KS3 classrooms.
Its publisher, Hot Key Books has created a Resource Pack with English objectives, providing material for five or more KS3 lessons – perfect for classes studying the Holocaust or World War II in Year 9.
What’s more, if you submit your class’s final creative writing into Hot Key Books’ exclusive competition by Friday 15 December, one of your students will be in with winning a class visit from Lucy Adlington herself.
The Resource Pack is designed for children aged 13–15 and invites everyone in your class to go on a journey, in every sense of the word. The lessons included have been designed to guide pupils through the different elements of creative writing – from character, to setting to sensory description – giving them the skills and confidence they need to draft, structure and write a creative piece of their own.
To enter Hot Key Books’ exclusive Red Ribbon schools competition, simply submit any final pieces to:
The Red Ribbon Competition, Hot Key Books, 80-81 Wimpole Street, Marylebone, London, W1G 9RF
The closing date is Friday 15 December 2017.
