Stone Age to Iron Age - 3 week information writing unit - every session resourced - Year 3 or Year 4

Drama! Talk! Reading skills! Grammar skills! Organising information in fun and inviting ways… It’s all here in this fully resourced (many resources are also differentiated) and carefully planned unit linked with history. Perfect for Year 3 or Year 4! I have included the full unit in a zip folder, as you cannot see it all in the preview. The children begin with an assessment task (a cold task) and then spend a week exploring a model text about the Stone Age and learning some key grammar skills for year 3 and 4. They go on to learn about structure and organisation whilst also learning about mammoths! Finally they use all of their new skills to create their own information text about the Iron Age. The whole 15 lesson unit is full of games and activities focused on these skills: I can show what I already know about writing an information text I can ask questions to improve my understanding of the text I can quickly find information in non-fiction texts I can use conjunctions (when, before, after, while) to explain when things happen I can use prepositions (in, on, inside, at, by, during, before, after) to explain when and where I can spot the key features of information texts I can use paragraphs to group information I can use headings and sub-headings to organise an information text I can present (show) information in different ways I can use glossaries to check the meaning of words (repair ‘meaning breakdowns’) I can present information in different ways
