Ancient Greece Bundle

Ancient Greece Bundle

This bundle is a combination of Week 1 Topic work on Ancient Greece, alongside playscripts based on Ancient Greek Myths (Literacy) and a week of Explanation Texts based on the Ancient Greeks too. The Literacy planning includes a week's worth of planning and differentiated resources along with an interactive notebook to support the lesson. The Ancient Greece Topic lesson, introduces children to Ancient Greece and provide them with the background knowledge for their Literacy lesson. Both have been taught by myself with my Year 5 class, who LOVED learning about the Ancient Greeks. I bundled them together for anyone (like me), who will teach them on the same/consecutive weeks.

Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight Writing Genres - Sort and Display

Eight writing genre headers to display around the classroom underneath an example of each piece of student work. Below is a simple example of each in a few sentences based on a stretch my class learned in their P.E class. The children sorted the short pieces of writing by pairing them with each of the 8 writing genres. This was a great activity to get them to think about the different writing genres we will be working on this year and how each is different.
