Goodnight Mister Tom SOW- 14 lessons
A scheme of work focusing on chapters 1-11 of the novel Goodnight Mister Tom.

Aimed at 11-14 year olds but can be adapted to suit younger students. This scheme is aimed at middle ability students but does use challenge questions (sub-titled on the slides) to enable you to stretch and challenge your most able.

The scheme aims to build reading skills to prepare students for the new specification examinations. The skills that they develop during this module are linked to their ability to differentiate between explicit and implicit information and infer meaning and the writer's message. Students will also be able to develop their contextual knowledge and learn how to apply this to their reading to aid understanding.

Each powerpoint should complement the reading of each chapter.
Each lesson has a mini starter linked to the text. There is then a SPAG/Literacy starter to compliment the lesson. Most lessons are focused on the reading of a chapter, this is then followed by an activity based on the students' reading and then a developmental activity to consolidate their learning.

There is also a Scheme of Learning Document (see FJO shop) available that may be useful if the scheme is being used for a whole department. This clearly details the overall learning journey of the module and clearly shows the differentiation strategy.
