UKS2 Geography - Mount Everest Informational Text Writing Unit

This is an informational text writing unit about Mount Everest. The unit focuses on key facts about the world’s highest mountain, then looks at it’s history; from the first summit attempts until the present day problems that have been caused by human waste. The unit has been split into three separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.

NO PREP is needed!

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!

If you would like to add another lesson, download my Mount Everest Reading Comprehension Activity for just £1.50. This would give the students more background knowledge before they start writing the text.

We also specialise in play scripts, we have a William Shakespeare collection with Richard III, Macbeth and Hamlet.We have a good selection of Christmas play scripts including Elf, The Santa Clause and A Christmas Carol.
