2 week unit of planning for descriptive writing based on The Great Explorer by Chris Judge

2 week unit of planning for descriptive writing based on The Great Explorer by Chris Judge

This is a Year 2 resource. Two weeks of detailed lesson plans plus smartboards for eight lessons where smartboards are required. There is a link in the planning to an online reading of the book. This is a great way for year 2 children to include adjectives and adverbs in their descriptive writing. There is also a link to a video clip of The Northern Lights to inspire the children. The activities are differentiated either by a worksheet or by differentiated expecttations set out as success criteria. I have successfully used this unit of literacy to link to our history topic on Explorers from the past including Christopher Columbus. The story of the Great Explorer follows the adventures of a child who sets off to the North Pole to rescue his Dad. Follow up work on a news report and information writing to follow.
