About Me

After completing my Masters in Renaissance and Medieval Literature, I completed the Graduate Training Programme through the University of Southampton School of Education and now teach English at KS3 and KS4. I became Assistant Head of the English Faculty in a large secondary comprehensive school in January 2014 and I am responsible for KS3 English.

In October 2013 I co-organised and ran the first Teaching and Learning Takeover conference. A conference for teachers from all sectors about the basics of our profession. The second TLT took place in October 2014 and we are now planning TLT15! Please see the website for more details!   It’s wonderful to meet so many enthusiastic educators through this and other events.

I have been blogging about my ideas, thoughts, successful and unsuccessful lessons over the past few years. My interests lie in all things teaching and learning. I am keen to understand more about how research can inform our classroom practice and teaching and learning strategies that can be embedded rather than flippantly used. I  will happily try anything if there’s a chance it will improve my pupils’ learning and enthusiasm for their learning. I can be found on Twitter on: @MissJLud

    Hi Jenn,
    I follow your blog and noticed a while ago you showed examples of your new assessment sheets for KS3. I was wondering whether it would be possible to have copies of these as we are still trying to sort ours. We are a middle school with years 6,7 and 8. Many thanks, Mary

    1. I am so sorry I never saw this comment. I am still yet to share on the blog about the KS3 but will do soon although I have no doubt you have great plans in place by now!
