UKS2 History - The Moon Landing Informational Text Writing Unit

This is an informational text writing unit about the Moon Landing of Apollo 11 in 1969. The text covers the launch, Neil Armstrong’s first steps, and the celebrations and legacy it left afterwards. 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 your class to look at the Moon landing in more detail then our Moon Landing Reading Comprehension Activity adds an extra lesson for just £1.50!

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