Great work coming in from Year 9… The knife of never letting go: the book that never stops delivering.
Tag Archives: The Knife of Never Letting Go introduction
My year 9 boys are working on Ness’s Knife of Never Letting Go. Here they discuss the text at the mid-point of study. Please feel free to use the sound files for critique of Speaking and Listening skills…
NOTE these are broadly off the cuff discussions – preparation was minimal.
A repeat post for my guide and activities for this wonderful text. I am so looking forward to engaging with this again, and bothering @Patrick_Ness on Twitter when my students have questions or present something great.

I have prepared a reading guide to Ness’ novel the knife of never letting go. It is aimed at students and teachers alike and gives a brief summary of each of the chapters together with some comment on key themes and narrative techniques. It is not meant to provide lesson plans and othe rteaching ideas as such, but should assist in the planning process.
A screencast to introduce the novel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGxYyOicjiQ
I will post teaching ideas and snapshots of the work that my Year 9 produce as the term unfolds.
