A complete 3 week unit of work for Non-Fiction (for Fiction see my other unit on the Dragon Machine).
Based on the book ‘Tell me a Dragon’ and accompanying notes from Pie Corbett (see T4W website- this document is not included but is free to download there)
This unit of work is for Y1/2, aimed at the top end of Y2 and differentiated. There are lots of resources, worksheets and flipchart examples included to help support the teaching of this unit. It has a big talk for writing focus and we have produced some fantastic writing as a result. There are lots of writing opportunities built in, not just an end of unit write. You will hopefully get lots of short burst writing of good quality, linked to this text.
Easily editable and adaptable to different class sizes, age groups and term length. Combined with my Fiction planning it will cover a whole 5-6 week term.
