English Planning - Cool by Michael Morpurgo

This is ideal for years 4 and 5, but could be used with 6.

This includes planning for six weeks - 30 days in total.

The format I have used is as follows…

Monday - Discussion / Short Writing
Tuesday - Reading Comprehension
Wednesday - Grammar and Punctuation
Thursday and Friday - Longer Writing

Writing genres included…
-play script / drama
-magazine article
-newspaper report

You can easily copy and paste the ideas from this planning into your own format if you want to.

This is an ideal book to use for a half term because it is not too long and it is engaging. However, please be aware that it includes a boy in a coma and it could upset some children if they have recently experienced an illness or loss in the family.
