A complete scheme of 10 lessons based around the story of BEOWULF. Written for a year 4 class, it is easy to adapt for year 5 or 6 as there is a strong emphasis on basic grammar skills in the planning.

Planning is of a high quality and includes all resources, including a version of the story (written by me) Wherever possible, editable versions of each resource are also provided. Each lesson is fully differentiated and includes a powerpoint presentation
**Learning Objectives: **

  • To use a variety of sentence openers
  • To vary our sentence openers when creating a description
  • To punctuate direct speech correctly
  • To add adverbial clauses to dialogue.
  • To use tenses consistently

  • To use figurative devices to describe.
  • To vary clauses in complex sentences
  • To plan a short story with suspense
  • To apply the features of short stories.
  • To edit and improve the introduction to a short story.****
    The files are zipped, however I have added some loose examples of the resources to give an indication of quality.
