The Charge of the Light Brigade

This resource supports a poem often studied for GCSE English, The Charge of the Light Brigade by Alfred Lord Tennyson. It contains a set of flashcards with images to support understanding of the poem, and a stanza by stanza breakdown of key vocabulary.

Key vocabulary that is more abstract is listed for each stanza to be looked up in a bilingual dictionary or using translation software.
