Year 5: Recounts (Complete 2-Week Unit)

No additional resources needed

During this two-week unit pupils will learn about the style, structure and features of recount texts as well as when/why they are used.

They will take an in depth look into fronted adverbials and the use of paragraphs in order to develop their understanding of how these are used to create cohesion within a piece of writing.

To conclude the unit, children will enjoy working in small groups as they plan a ‘hoax’ UFO sighting within school. They will then apply their knowledge of recount texts as they independently draft and write their own News Reports.
